“Time Out Of Mind” the fifth track off of Steely Dan’s 1980 release Gaucho is one hell of a groove. Right from the outset with a drum beat that would find itself in Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” only two years later, it’s a joy to the ears with some great guitar work, great harmonies and seemingly easy chord changes. Simple is one thing Steely Dan never was, but their ability to make a pop song shines here and Gaucho remains among the most stunningly produced albums in terms of sonic integrity. The guitar and organ interplay makes you just want to put this song on repeat, forever.
