"Hey Nineteen" (1980)
Gaucho is essentially a concept record about staying too long at the fair, and this track is its skeevy centerpiece. Steely Dan protagonists don't come much more hilariously pathetic than the aging dude from this leisurely funk tune, who's putting the moves on a 19-year-old. He brags about his frat exploits and tries to set the mood with some Aretha, only to find that his companion "don't remember the Queen of Soul." The song builds to perhaps the ultimate yacht-rock refrain, which many singing it back to the band live don't seem to realize is pure satire: "The Cuervo Gold/The fine Colombian/Make tonight a wonderful thing."
