“Hey Nineteen” is one of those songs with a catchy tune that you just can’t NOT listen or dance to. The song released in 1980 by Steely Dan – off their album titled, Gaucho.
The song peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and wa just one of their top ten hits altogether.
Meanings behind the song have a few different interpretations, but one reviewer claims it to be about a middle-aged man with a much younger lover who isn’t familiar with his generation’s trends, including music.
Here is “Hey Nineteen” – a live performance in Charlotte, NY from 2006…I just love Donald Fagen’s voice! Enjoy it!
