Way back when, in '67
I was the dandy of Gamma Chi
Sweet things from Boston
So young and willing
Moved down to Scarsdale
Where the hell am I?

Hey Nineteen
No, we can't dance together
No, we can't talk at all
Please take me along when you slide on down

Hey Nineteen
That's 'Retha Franklin
She don't remember the Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

Hey Nineteen
No, we got nothin' in common
No, we can't talk at all
Please take me along when you slide on down

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Colombian
Make tonight a wonderful thing

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Colombian
Make tonight a wonderful thing

The Cuervo Gold
The fine Colombian
Make tonight a wonderful thing

No, we can't dance together
No, we can't talk at all

seems like the RP mello mix is a bunch of easy listening 70s and 80s music that my parents liked to listen to on road trips.  great trips - didn't like the music.
 
First time hearing this gem on the Main mix. I love jazz and I love rock so jazz-rock suits my tastes perfectly and I rate it at 9
LLRP!!

This year's theme song.

Too bad what Fagen doesn't realize is that the magic of younger women is stop being a stick-in-the-mud, *forget 'Retha Franklin* and learn today's new stuff. Some of it isn't bad!

And you'd be surprised how many twenty-somethings adore the Stones, the Beatles, Aretha Franklin, etc. Not a majority, but they do exist!

Way, way more diverse playlist that what you indicate.  I've had all decades represented in the last hour, all the way back to 1930s and Glen Miller.  
From Ed Sheeran to this; from the ridiculous to the sublime.
I love how I can see the roller-rink when this is on.

AND

This gives me a hankering for Tequila and  Cocain, even though I'm not even into that kind of thing.
