This is one of the best musical hard choices we've had. I've been listening to Steely Dan Pandora station and I'm going with them. As much as I like The Police, I also really like the warm and sound and arrangements of the Steely Dan body of work.

Big surprise, I had the same reaction as you. Very hard choice.  And it hit while I was in a real Steely Dan phase.  So I thought i was being influenced even though I go through my Police runs too.  But you summed it up. Warmth.  Which is why I also put Stevie over Prince.

I'd give the edge to the Police, if only for being a largely self contained unit with Sting, Copeland and Summers-- with Steely Dan, you had the core of Fagen and Becker, but there was often a semi-rotating lineup of studio-session folks and touring personnel, right?


I literally didn't know that was a SD track until two days ago. I also didn't know Michael McDonald was in the group or so people tell me.


Speaking of Steely Dan and Michael McDonald...this looks AWESOME!  Definitely going to the show in August!
