However, if "My Old School" came on the radio, and I was driving 8 hours across Nebraska, and I was happy just to have any ol' music on to keep me alert, I wouldn't mind the song and would probably sing along to its lyrics..."I'm never going back to my high school!" But I would never seek out a Steely Dan song (that I know of) intentionally to listen to...even though they play very well. (I just listened again to "My Old School." Yep. They are all very good musicians.)
My wife is the same way, she doesnt even like to listen to Steely Dan
Can you imagine that!
