    "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues". Incomparable.

    "They call these cracker assholes this grandiose name like the Crimson Tide." A truer statement has never been made. This should practically be Auburn's fight song. War Eagle.

    This song refers to The Wake Forest "Demon Deacons," whose football team struggled for much of the '70s, winning just 7 games from 1972-1975. At the same time, the University Of Alabama was a football powerhouse, winning the National Championship in 1973 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": "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" http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=4042

    Some great lines are in this tune, and it has a great groove to it, and I love the back up singers.

    this does not sound like a track from the aja album. IT SOUNDS LIKE AN EARLY OR RE-RECORDED VERSION.

    @OLdSKuul62 - So right you are. There's a reason they labored on this one for months. This track reminds me of my brother and his own impeccable taste.

    most profound....who are the winners in this world anyway? these are questions we should ponder when we drink scotch whiskey all night long and cry behind the wheel...not drive...........drink responsibly.

    I'm always a bit perplexed that Deacon Blue the Scottish band with more top ten hit singles than Steely Dan in the UK, should have been named after this song. This is a cerebral track from a cerebral band, and DB in the UK were very much a pop act. But they did give me one lyric that always sticks out- their song "Chocolate Girl". sic "He calls her the Chocolate girl, because he thinks she melts when he touches her"

    Killer tune: "drink Scotch whiskey all night long, and die behind the wheel," only S.D. could turn it into a wonderful musical memory of better times.

    absolutely one of my favorite tracks of all time but the entire Aja album means San Pedro, California to me and will always be priceless
