Apparently you CAN buy a thrill...

Surfing the Internet can have you end up anywhere. Searching for news about, say, "Steely Dan", can have you land on a blog where a man writes that contrary to the title one of his Steely Dan albums (Can't Buy A Thrill) you really can buy a thrill.

And he tells a story of an older man and a young woman that would make perfect fodder for a Donald Fagen and Walter Becker lyric. In the seventies with a wry, cynical twist. These days perhaps with an older, more reflecting view a la 2003's Everything Must Go.

At any rate; if D&W need some inspiration for the new album, they could follow this link and take it from there.

Hey there... Just popping by and noticed your Can't Buy A Thrill link goes to the Countdown to Ecstasy Wiki page. I'm pretty sure you meant to point it to here. Not trying to pick any nits or anything, just thought you might want to know.

Cheers!

Ooops! Thanks for the correction. This "blogging" thing isn't as easy as I thought ;-)
