    check out this live recording from pharrell frontin´
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlrue0Z3z8U

    I love this ending @ 3:57, which I believe is stolen from a steely dan song.

    Anyone know what song it is ? I can´t seem to find out.

    Thanks

    Sounds like the intro to Deacon Blues to me

    Stolen? Strong accusation. I doubt very much it's stolen.

    I don't think they hit it hard enough to be a rip. Sounds more like a call back to me but, yeah, it's there for sure.

    What Kid Rock did to Sweet Home? That was a steal if it wasn't blessed.

    IMHO

    Just listened to Steely Dan. Chords are similar. Not the same exact arrangement though.
