Quote: "Yes we're gonna have a wingding
A summer smoker underground
It's just a dugout that my dad built
In case the reds decide to push the button down
We've got provisions and lots of beer
The key word is survival on the New Frontier"

"Introduce me to that big blonde
She's got a touch of Tuesday Weld
She's wearing Ambush and a French twist
She's got us wild and she can tell
She loves to limbo that much is clear
She's got the right dynamic for the New Frontier"

"Well I can't wait til I move to the city
Til I finally make up my mind
To learn design and study overseas
Do you have a steady boyfriend
Cause honey I've been watching you
I hear you're mad about Brubeck
I like your eyes I like him too
He's an artist a pioneer
We've got to have some music on the New Frontier"

"Well I can't wait til I move to the city
Til I finally make up my mind
To learn design and study overseas
Let's pretend that it's the real thing
And stay together all night long
And when I really get to know you
We'll open up the doors and climb into the dawn
Confess your passion your secret fear
Prepare to meet the challenge of the New Frontier"

Quote: A portrait of the artist as a young man, The Nightfly is a wonderfully evocative reminiscence of Kennedy-era American life;

In the liner notes, Donald Fagen describes the songs as representative of the kinds of fantasies he entertained as an adolescent during the late '50s/early '60s, and he conveys the tenor of the times with some of his most personal and least obtuse material to date.

Continuing in the smooth pop-jazz mode favored on the final Steely Dan records, The Nightfly is lush and shimmering, produced with cinematic flair by Gary Katz; romanticized but never sentimental, the songs are slices of suburbanite soap opera, tales of space-age hopes (the hit "I.G.Y.") and Cold War fears (the wonderful "The New Frontier," a memoir of fallout-shelter love) crafted with impeccable style and sophistication.

cheers.gif Nice, I had forgotten about Fagen's solo stuff. I always liked his vocals. Everything he did sounded like Steely Dan to me for some strange reason chuckle.gif

I've listened to the wonderful song New Frontier a hundred times on stereo headphones and it sounds so nice every time and the first video I posted above is of that songs radio edited version and its also one of the most creative and innovative music videos ever made and the full version of that song is within the second video also above...

Steely Dan was and still is a high quality and very talented musical group and I suppose Donald Fagan was their best most prominent vocalist and lyricist and heres my favorite song by them and their biggest hit in America as well called Rikki Dont Lose That Number and I dont like this timelessly evocative song I luv it very much...
