When this Steely Dan song came out I couldn't figure out the title no matter how many times I heard it on the radio.  It may have been decades before I found out what it all meant via the internet.  We had it tough back then!  But it was mysterious and challenging, the guessing of it all was a major after-school occupation.  Now we can simply type in Taylor Swift's or The Weeknd's latest tune and learn everything and then some. :rolleyes:

I can't believe you wouldn't know this:

 

 

 

Why I bothered to post this, I don't know, since I don't even like the song that much.

I listened to this song, and like many disco songs, it is terrible. But there are a lot of great disco songs, if you look for them. France Joli's "Come to Me" and "The Heart to Break a Heart" are two examples..

I don't know who Patsy Gallant is, but the disco diva from Canada that I was thinking of was France Joli.

One of my favourite bands of all time is The Velvet Underground. I love them, just about everything they did gives me a certain feeling. To me there's something so mysterious and New York about them, something kind of dangerous and joyous at the same time. Here be one of my favourites by them; it's no longer morning, but it's still Sunday.

 

 

Miss Wonderly, I also like the Velvet Underground, mostly for the mysterious and beautiful singer Nico. There is a fascinating documentary on her called Nico Icon, well worth seeking out if you can.

That flower child-y girl who's been there for 6 years is so 1969.

Vautrin, that's what I call a feel-good video. I wonder if all those people were friends of the Chili Peppers, or just hopefuls auditioning to be in a Red Hot Chili Peppers video? Either way, they all look as though they were having a great time.

It's the feel good music video of ten years ago. I think they were folks

who auditioned for the video. I'm sure everyone had a good time. Like

that old Sly Stone song says Everybody is a Star.

Here's one for you, Miss Canada. Name a disco diva who was from Canada.

One of my favorites from this early 70's group. This song is so stylistically McCartney-esque in every possible way Paul should be getting royalties to this day.

 

It's the little psychedelic flourish that finishes the track that most works for me.

 

 

 

Yes, it's very "McCartney-esque", especially the piano chords.

This may be the wrong place for this post, but...

 

I really don't understand the obsession with Beyonce.  People act as if she's some infallible goddess, everything she does is brilliant and beyond anything that has ever been done in the history of mankind.

 

I don't think Beyonce is all that great.  Most of her songs are crap, you can't even hear her words.  At this point, I think she's buying her own hype because all I see are these self-indulgent displays of pretentiousness. 

 

She sucks.
