    Bill Callahan, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy Tackle Steely Dan&#;s &#;Deacon Blues&#;

    Bill Callahan and Bonnie “Prince” Billy have continued their cover series with Steely Dan&#;s &#;Deacon Blues,&#; with Bill MacKay lending a hand.

    Directed by Michael Tully, the clip features a woman finding change on the ground, guzzling Gatorade, and eventually watching projections of Callahan and Billy on a house. They perform the Aja track across acoustic guitar: &#;Learn to work the saxophone/I play just what I feel/Drink Scotch whiskey all night long/And die behind the wheel.&#;

    &#;Party got busted,&#; Billy said of the cover. &#;All clear. Let&#;s get our buzzes back buzzing. Cup size BBB.&#; Added Tully: &#;When the honorable Bill Callahan and Bonnie &#;Prince&#; Billy asked me to direct a music video for their cover of Steely Dan&#;s &#;Deacon Blues,&#; my initial Covid-safe plan was to cut together an avant-garde montage of archival NFL Films footage of legendary lineman Deacon Jones wreaking havoc on the gridiron. But that idea died when the NFL quoted 15 THOUSAND DOLLARS for every 1 MINUTE of footage used. Bwahahahaaa!&#;

    &#;Deacon Blues&#; follows Callahan and Billy&#;s cover of Billie Eilish&#;s &#;Wish You Were Gay,&#; &#;Yusuf/Cat Stevens’ protest song “Blackness of the Night,” Hank Williams Jr.’s “OD’d in Denver,” Dave Rich’s “I’ve Made Up My Mind,” and more.

  1. This song has the curious chorus line of:

    They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
    Call me Deacon Blues


    At the time, the University Of Alabama was a football powerhouse, winning the National Championship in and losing just one game in each of their next two seasons under the direction of their famous coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Alabama is known as "The Crimson Tide," a grandiose name that Steely Dan's Walter Becker and Donald Fagen found amusing.

    The "Deacon" is often thought to be the Wake Forest University "Demon Deacons," whose football team struggled for much of the '70s, winning just seven games from According to Fagen, however, that name came from Deacon Jones, a star football player with the Rams and Chargers who got a lot of attention in the media because of his aggressive play and outsized personality. The name fit well into the song, with "Deacon" matching up sonically with "Crimson."

  2. The song is about a guy who Becker describes as a "Triple-L loser." In the Classic Albums documentary on Aja, he said: "The protagonist is not a musician, he just sort of imagines that would be one of the mythic forms of loser-dom to which he might aspire. And who's to say that he's not right?"

    Fagen added: "'Deacon Blues' is about as close to autobiography as our tunes get. We were both kids who grew up in the suburbs, we both felt fairly alienated. Like a lot of kids in the '50s, we were looking for some kind of alternative culture, an escape from where we found ourselves."

  3. When asked about the line, "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues," Donald Fagen told Rolling Stone magazine: "Walter and I had been working on that song at a house in Malibu. I played him that line, and he said, 'You mean it's like, 'They call these cracker a--holes this grandiose name like the Crimson Tide, and I'm this loser, so they call me this other grandiose name, Deacon Blues?' and I said 'Yeah!' He said, 'Cool, let's finish it.'"

  4. The Scottish rock group Deacon Blue, who enjoyed seven Top 20 UK hits between and , took their name from this song.

  5. Regarding the opening line, "This is the day of the expanding man," Donald Fagen cites the sci-fi novel The Demolished Man, by Alfred Bester, as an influence. The book finds the main character "expanding" his mind and thinking of all the possibilities in his life.

  6. When our hero is "ready to cross that fine line" in this song, that's the line between being a loser and being a winner, a line that according to Becker he has tried to cross before, but without success.

  7. Musicians on this track are:

    Lead Vocals, Synthesizer: Donald Fagen
    Bass: Walter Becker
    Drums: Bernard Purdie
    Electric Piano (Fender Rhodes): Victor Feldman
    Guitar: Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour
    Tenor Saxophone: Pete Christlieb
    Backing Vocals: Clydie King, Sherlie Matthews, Venetta Fields

  8. The second intro on this track is one of the most distinctive openings in rock. It was created by having guitarist Larry Carlton and piano player Victor Feldman play the same chords, which were layered together with drummer Bernard Purdie's cymbals.

  9. When this song was near completion, Becker and Fagen decided they wanted a sax solo, and they had a very specific sound in mind: the tenor sax that played going to commercial on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. They tracked down the sax player in the Tonight Show band, Pete Christlieb, who recorded his part after a taping of the show. There are many tales of musicians being asked to do take after take during a Steely Dan session, but Christlieb was done in 30 minutes, and it was his second take they used. His part, and the rest of the horns, were arranged by Tom Scott.

    Deacon Blues

    single by Steely Dan

    For the racehorse, see Deacon Blues (horse).

    single by Steely Dan

    "Deacon Blues" is a song written by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen in and recorded by their group Steely Dan on their album Aja.[2] It peaked at number 19 on the Billboard charts[3] and number 17 on the U.S. Cash Box Top in June [4] It also reached #40 on the Easy Listening chart.[5] In Canada, it peaked at #14, a position it occupied for two weeks,[6] and #20 Adult Contemporary.[7]

    Background[edit]

    Donald Fagen said of the song's opening lines and theme:

    The concept of the "expanding man" that opens the song may have been inspired by Alfred Bester's The Demolished Man. Walter and I were major sci-fi fans. The guy in the song imagines himself ascending to the levels of evolution, "expanding" his mind, his spiritual possibilities, and his options in life.[8]

    The song was largely written at Fagen's house in Malibu and was prompted by his observation that "if a college football team like the University of Alabama could have a grandiose name like the 'Crimson Tide' the nerds and losers should be entitled to a grandiose name as well."[2] The song's protagonist, muses Fagen, is somewhat "autobiographical in that it reflected the dreams [Fagen and Becker had] about becoming jazz musicians while . . . living in the suburbs."[9] Characterized as a "loser" by Becker, the song's subject was meant to reflect "a broken dream of a broken man living a broken life".[2] In his memoir Eminent Hipsters, Fagen gives credit to Norman Mailer as inspiration for the narrator's persona:

    [It] toyed with the cliché of the jazz musician as antihero. It was kind of a takeoff on that old essay by Norman Mailer, "The White Negro," not to mention our lives up to that point. . . . the alienated white suburban kid thinks that if he learns how to play bebop, he'll throw off the chains of repression and live the authentic life, unleash the wild seeds of art and passion and so on.[10]

    On the origin of the song's name, Fagen says, it was inspired by football player Deacon Jones, as they like the sound of his name: "It also had two syllables, which was convenient, like 'Crimson.'"[2] The song, however, is really about "the ultimate outsider, the flip side of the dream, boy-o . . . call me Deacon Blues."[10]

    Recording[edit]

    "Deacon Blues" was recorded at Village Recorders in West Los Angeles. Jazz guitarist Larry Carlton used Fagen's demos to transcribe the chords into a rhythm section that featured Carlton's guitar on the song's opening. Saxophonist Tom Scott wrote the horn arrangements for not only "Deacon Blues" but for all of the songs on Aja, a task that he completed in less than two weeks. After the song was recorded, Becker and Fagen decided to add a saxophone solo. They asked their producer, Gary Katz, to arrange for Pete Christlieb to record the part. At the time, neither Becker nor Fagen knew Christlieb by name, only by his reputation as a musician on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. Christlieb went to the studio and recorded the solo after taping the show one evening.

    They told me to play what I felt. Hey, I'm a jazz musician, that's what I do so I recorded my first solo we listened back and they said it was great. I recorded a second take and that's the one they used. I was gone in a half hour. The next thing I know I'm hearing myself in every airport bathroom in the world.[2]

    About its composition, Fagen later states: "One thing we did right on 'Deacon Blues' and all of our records: we never tried to accommodate the mass market. We worked for ourselves and still do."[2]

    Reception and legacy[edit]

    "Deacon Blues" was released on Steely Dan's album Aja which reached No.3 on Billboard's album chart, a position it held for seven consecutive weeks.[2] The song was the duo's fifth Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot chart in the US, where it peaked at #19 in "Deacon Blues" remained in the Top 40 for eight weeks.[11]Billboard particularly praised the "outstanding" saxophone playing.[12]

    In a AOL chat interview, Becker discussed the inspiration for the song, "It was an outgrowth of a specific mood that pertained at a given time," and later added, "I remember the night that we mixed that one thinking that it was really good and wanting to hear it over and over which is never the case."[13] Music critic Marc Myers writes "As midlife-crisis songs go, Steely Dan's 'Deacon Blues' ranks among the most melodic and existential."[2]

    The Scottish pop/rock band Deacon Blue took their name from this song.[14]William Gibson's book Mona Lisa Overdrive features a gang called the Deacon Blues.[15]

    One of my most fav tracks ever..I am not a huge Steely dan fan, but when I heard this, I was blown away. Steely Dan's catalogue was by far the best selling ones at our Cincinnati stores, we would sell "Pretzel Logic", "Katy Lied', "Royal Scam" by the box load at Christmas years after their initial release. It was really amazing..very unusual as they sold more than any other artist at Christmas. They got a lot of airplay in that market. Jackson Browne's catalogue was probably second, followed by the Beatles, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Little Feat. Sales as expected are always correlated with airplay. Sorry for the ramble, I seem to have gotten off track.

    Deacon Blues Lyrics


    This is the day of the expanding man
    That shape is my shade
    There where I used to stand
    It seems like only yesterday
    I gazed through the glass
    At ramblers, wild gamblers
    That's all in the past

    You call me a fool
    You say it's a crazy scheme
    This one's for real
    I already bought the dream
    So useless to ask me why
    Throw a kiss and say goodbye
    I'll make it this time
    I'm ready to cross that fine line

    [Chorus]
    I'll learn to work the saxophone
    I play just what I feel
    Drink Scotch whiskey all night long
    And die behind the wheel
    They got a name for the winners in the world
    And I want a name when I lose
    They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
    Call me Deacon Blues

    My back to the wall
    A victim of laughing chance
    This is for me
    The essence of true romance
    Sharing the things we know and love
    With those of my kind
    Libations
    Sensations
    That stagger the mind

    I crawl like a viper
    Through these suburban streets
    Make love to these women
    Languid and bittersweet
    I'll rise when the sun goes down
    Cover every game in town
    A world of my own
    I'll make it my home sweet home

    [Chorus]

    This is the night of the expanding man
    I take one last drag
    As I approach the stand
    I cried when I wrote this song
    Sue me if I play too long
    This brother is free
    I'll be what I want to be

    Deacon Blues
  11. This song has the curious chorus line of:

    They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
    Call me Deacon Blues

    At the same time, the University Of Alabama was a football powerhouse, winning the National Championship in and losing just one game in each of their next two seasons under the direction of their famous coach Paul "Bear" Bryant. Alabama is known as "The Crimson Tide," a grandiose name that Steely Dan's Walter Becker and Donald Fagen found amusing.

    The "Deacon" is often thought to be the Wake Forest University "Demon Deacons," whose football team struggled for much of the '70s, winning just 7 games from According to Fagen, however, that name came from Deacon Jones, a star football player with the Rams and Chargers who got a lot of attention in the media because of his aggressive play and outsized personality. The name fit well into the song, with "Deacon" matching up sonically with "Crimson."
  12. The song is about a guy who Becker describes as a "Triple-L loser." He told The Wall Street Journal: It's not so much about a guy who achieves his dream but about a broken dream of a broken man living a broken life."

    Fagen added: "Many people have assumed the song is about a guy in the suburbs who ditches his life to become a musician. In truth, I'm not sure the guy actually achieves his dream. He might not even play the horn. It's the fantasy life of a suburban guy from a certain subculture. Many of our songs are journalistic. But this one was more autobiographical, about our own dreams when we were growing up in different suburban communities&#;me in New Jersey and Walter in Westchester County."
  13. When asked about the line, "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, they call me Deacon Blues," Donald Fagen told Rolling Stone magazine: "Walter and I had been working on that song at a house in Malibu. I played him that line, and he said, 'You mean it's like, 'They call these cracker a--holes this grandiose name like the Crimson Tide, and I'm this loser, so they call me this other grandiose name, Deacon Blues?' and I said 'Yeah!' He said, 'Cool, let's finish it.'"
  14. The Scottish rock group Deacon Blue, who enjoyed seven Top 20 UK hits between and , took their name from this song.
  15. Regarding the opening line, "This is the day of the expanding man," Donald Fagen cites the sci-fi novel The Demolished Man, by Alfred Bester, as an influence. The book finds the main character "expanding" is mind and thinking of all the possibilities in his life.
  16. When our hero is "ready to cross that fine line" in this song, that's the line between being a loser and being a winner, a line that according to Becker he has tried to cross before, but without success.
  17. Musicians on this track are:

    Lead Vocals, Synthesizer: Donald Fagen

    Drums: Bernard Purdie
    Electric Piano (Fender Rhodes): Victor Feldman
    Guitar: Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour

  18. The second intro on this track is one of the most distinctive openings in rock. It was created by having guitarist Larry Carlton and piano player Victor Feldman play the same chords, which were layered together with drummer Bernard Purdie's cymbals.
