"While the music played, you worked by candlelight
Those San Francisco nights
You were the best in town
Just by chance you crossed the diamond with the pearl
You turned it on the world
That's when you turned the world around
(Did you feel like Jesus?)
Did you realize
That you were a champion in their eyes?
On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen-clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home "

I like Steely Dan but can't say it's the best album ever made. At least I'm half on your side!

Love me some of that mid to late 1970's vibe. Such a great time for music.

So if your a fan of Steely Dan. Here’s a tidbit. They got their name from a novel called “The Naked Lunch” In the book describes a “steam driven dildo” that was referred to as a Steely Dan. True story! They are the best!

I don't remember "Steely Dan" being steam-driven.

However, it did win first prize in the Yokohama Sex Device contest, as I recall, from my (many decades ago) reading of Burroughs' work.

The pair were later hired to produce a soundtrack for a 1971 low-budget movie called You Gotta Walk It Like You Talk It,, and were joined in the effort by vocalist Kenny Vance and drummer John Discepolo. Guitarist, Denny Dias also contributed to these sessions and he joined Fagen and Becker on their next project, which evolved following an alliance with producer Gary Katz, who suggested they form a band in order to have more of their songs recorded. In an era of outrageous band names, they chose Steely Dan from the steam-powered dildo in William Burroughs' novel The Naked Lunch. The trio was quickly expanded by the arrival of vocalist David Palmer, guitarist Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter and drummer Jim Hodder.
