Steely Dan – Do it again
For me, Steely Dan are a band whose songs evoke strong memories of childhood in the 1970s. Summer days spent driving to grandparents – the hot sun through the windscreen, windows open (no aircon in those days), and sticky, scorching vinyl seats, listening to the Radio One Roadshow broadcasting from exotic locations like Newquay or Llandudno.
Number one on my birthday in 1972: Chuck Berry – My Ding-a-Ling (a song, it appears, which mostly appears to be a extending joke about, erm, playing with oneself).
