2 The Royal Scam

LONG LIVE Steely Dan..Long live the 1970's.

3 Reelin' in the Years

Clever lyrics, great guitar playing. A lot of the songs from the "Aja" album are good, but this one is still my favorite.

I think it's between this one and Do it Again. Both of them classics - Beatlesboy9

This is one song that always makes me cry.

Always will be the greatest

4 Deacon Blues

I really don't see why it isn't #1. Some of the better song lyrics I've ever heard - Beatlesboy9

Personally its my favorite. The lyrics really mean something. - fireinside96

"They've got a name for the winners of the world
I want a name when I lose..." - Billyv

5 Kid Charlemagne

I always loved this song and had a rough idea of what the song was about. The opening bars of the song capture the danger and excitement of making and dealing in drugs brilliantly. I really like the song for the exquisite melody and harmony it contains. Larry Carlton's solo is rightly regarded as one of the greatest ever. I never get tired of listening to it.
