Steely Effing Dan

At a party a couple of weeks ago, I had a conversation with a friend in which they were talking about how much fun they'd had the weekend before at the Steely Dan concert in Houston. I sort of whipped my head around (in a bobbly wine-soaked way) and said, "Seriously?? What the ***? STEELY DAN???? You can't be serious."

But yes, apparently, there are people who really enjoy listening to them...like actually liking the music... I was kinda flabbergasted. I mean, as I told this person, when I conjure up the three worst bands I can think of, two of them are Steely and Dan. (I mentioned "wine-soaked" right?). Yeah, I know, I know: I have more than one Duran Duran song on my mp3 player and own three John Denver CDs. I'm not ashamed.

But Steely Effing Dan??? Huh.

Anyway, I know that's a rambling lead-in, but here's just another reason why Steely Effing Dan gets on my nerves.

To each his own, I guess.

That is just one dried-up-hasbeen-band looking for attention. And money.

I kind of like Steely Dan.

you do NOT like Steely Dan. Trust me. You do not.

babyfishmouth said...

No, I do. And Barry Manilow. And old, old Olivia Newton John.

Don't get me started on The Carpenters.

Yes, but Barry Manilow does not suck. Nor does Olivia Newton John. Steely Dan, however, suckimus maximus.
