Steely Dan – Peg
Oliver: This one may not be the most “souly” track out there, but it reminds me of my dad alot. When the whole family used to go to the beach in the summer and this got played in the car. Reminds me of good times and has given me a lot of inspiration over the years.
Steely Dan - Peg
Prince – I Wanna Be Your Lover
Prince is like a god to our friend Freddi. The amount of times we’ve heard this track should make us want to vomit, but it’s still one of our favs.
