It got its name from Deacon Jones a defensive end for the Chargers(and other teams). On March 26th 1978, "Deacon Blues" by Steely Dan entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #86; ten weeks later on June 4th, 1978 it peaked at #19 and spent 16 weeks on the Top 100...
It's interesting how people can make what they think are reasonable assumptions and make things up to explain things. It reached #40 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
The song is a TOTAL put down of the indulgent musician life.
If you play enough clubs and bars you actually run into a character like this. To Fagen and Becker the Deacon Blues character is a buffoon and a joke.
Between 19 the New York-based group had fifteen Top 100 records; with two making the Top 10, "Do It Again" and "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" ...
They just missed having four Top 10 records when both "Reeling in the Years" and "Peg" peaked #11.
He's already too far into the musician dream, or he's actually already bought a saxaphone."So useless to ask me why Throw a kiss and say goodbye I'll make it this time I'm ready to cross that fine line"Possibly breaking up with his wife/girlfriend who's sick of his schemes.
If that is in fact true, it would surely explain both the title of the song and the reference to Alabama Crimson Tide since Alabama is LSU's (our State College)'s biggest rival. Both Becker and Fagen have repeatedly said that this song, amongst other things, was about a loser wanting a name just like the winners in the world like Alabama's Crimson Tide. If you know anything about the Dan, they are 2 of the most sarcastic Ball Busters alive, lmao.
Try reading Brian Sweet's book on them and you'll know what I mean.
Note: Everthing is "in my humble opinion." Deacon Blues is about playing in a band, pure and simple.
My interpretation of the lyrics."This is the day of the expanding man"Today is the day he's going to better myself and do more with his life. "That shape is my shade There where I used to stand It seems like only yesterday I gazed through the glass At ramblers, wild gamblers That's all in the past"When he was younger (teenager?
), he looked through the windows of bars at the cool people drinking and having a good time.
