So, What’s HE (((Listening))) to NOW?
Today’s Inspiration comes from Steely Dan. If you don’t know who Steely Dan is – No, he’s NOT one person! It’s a band. Furthermore, “Steely Dan is an American jazz rock band whose music also blends elements of funk, R&B, and pop. Founded by core members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen in 1972, the band enjoyed great critical and commercial success starting from the early 1970s until breaking up in 1981. Rolling Stone has called them the perfect musical antiheroes for the Seventies.” The group reunited in 1993 and has toured steadily ever since according to Wikipedia.
Story Behind Today’s What’s He Listening to NOW?
So, I’m sitting in Brothers Bakery in East Harlem… It’s just after 10am. And for some reason this tune comes to mind. I know. Seems random but you’d understand if you got a chance to read the first post I did on how music surfaces to my mind. As it always goes, I’m going to adding this one to my Youtube “Right Now” Playlist … it’s classic about “the three things that motivate men: Violence, Women, and Money.” (Source: Genius.com)
Until I did the research – all I knew was the chorus which I was butchering. I’d sing it in my head as “back … track … do it agaaaaain…” But nope. It’s “Back, Jack, Do it Again.” As you watch the video and check out the lyrics, you might have to correct your internal lyrical misinterpretations too. Enjoy! It’s a pretty fun and catchy tune with a profound message. Click, play and listen and watch the lyrics in the video below.
With that … here’s this week’s What’s He Listening to Now selection of the week:
