Father’s Day Sunday Sounds: Steely Dan, “Deacon Blues”

In honor of today being Father’s Day, I’ve chosen a song from one of my dad’s favorite bands, Steely Dan. I’ve heard this song many a times growing up, and I’ve always kinda loved the absurdity ambiguity of their lyrics, the ones in this song in particular.

Maybe it’s due to the pseudo-underdog-anthem quality to it?

In any case, it’s catchy as hell.

Happy Father’s Day to all those wonderful paternal figures out there!
