I'm pissed I found this song a few years ago. Pissed because I could've discovered it 35 years ago. The Flamin Groovies. Really underrated 70's American power pop/rock.

BB King playing a Leon Russell tune. It's a gorgeous song, funky and intimate. The outro is HUGE & FUCKING GLORIOUS.

Whoa.

The idea that The Jonas Brothers had to follow that makes me feel all happy in my innards.

dudeman, did you send me this? Cause, holy crap. I think Plant starts to tear up. And Yo-Yo Ma grooving. And Letterman falling asleep.

It's easy to forget how great this song is, but there it is.

People always go on about the MC5. Specifically "Kick Out The Jams." That song is awesome. This one is better. Way better. It's Saturday on steroids.

MC5 - Baby Won't Ya - YouTube

Look at Rob Tyner's afro. Holy crap. I mean, holy crap.

Doctor Wu by Steely Dan - YouTube.flv - YouTube

The first time I heard this, my heart grew three sizes that day. I think I was about 9 or 10, and it was part of what caused them to be a band I listened to regularly instead of just casually whenever my dad put them on. What I love most about this band is how tuneful they can be underneath their clinical, caustic exterior, and this track is an example of them running with those pop impulses. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around this song because I can't imagine Steely Dan coming up with something so purely warm, sad and heart-wrenchingly beautiful. But there it is.

Gorgeous. I truly, truly love Donald Fagen's voice. It really soars in the chorus there, and on many of the Aja tracks I love.

I just read Fagen and Becker refuse to listen to the album owing to its poor sound quality?

Steely Dan has got to be the most bizarre and unexpected of the beloved artists on this board. But I love the enthusiasm you guys have for them/him.

What prompts you to say that?

I remember the first time I listened to Aja... one of the extremely few times I've heard an old album and it has been exactly what I hoped for and then some.

I'm just surprised at how often they come up, and always in an extremely positive light. It's not a critique - just an observation.

I found it surprising especially since I was under the impression that reelin in the years was the only song anyone had ever heard, and couldn't imagine anyone ever liking that boring pile of shit. Having been forced to listen to some solo Fagen tape on too many car rides as a kid, I will never have anything but hate for anything steely dan related.

That tape was probably the Nightfly, if I had to guess. I love that album but anything post-Royal Scam is going to lack a lot of the grit (especially in the guitar work) that I love about the band.
