Re: Poll (through 11/30) for top Steely Dan songs

IMO, no other artist has ever been as reliable as Steely Dan were in the '70s. Every song from those albums are favourites of mine. 1. Steely Dan | Haitian Divorce 2. Steely Dan | Do It Again 3. Steely Dan | Black Cow 4. Steely Dan | Peg 5. Donald Fagen | I.G.Y. 6. Steely Dan | Kid Charlemagne 7. St...

Shania Twain's "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" is from 1997, not 1999.
There should also be an exclamation mark after "Woman".
