    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Reelin’ in the Years” (sometimes Reeling in the Years) is a song by jazz rock band Steely Dan, released as the second single from their 1972 album, Can’t Buy a Thrill. It reached number 11 in the Billboard charts.

    The song was written by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker and features Fagen on vocals. The song was also a #11 hit on the Pop singles chart in 1973. In March 2005, Q magazine placed the song at number 95 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks. Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has reportedly said that Elliott Randall’s guitar solo on “Reeling in the Years” is his favorite solo of all time. That solo was also ranked the 40th best guitar solo of all time by the readers of Guitar World magazine. Fagen referred to the song as “dumb but effective” in Rolling Stone magazine. The four-channel Quadrophonic mix of the recording has extra lead guitar fills not heard in the more common two-channel Stereo version.

    The song is featured in Rob Zombie’s 2005 movie, The Devil’s Rejects. It was also used as the theme music for the television series Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive, which aired on BBC Three in the UK. The song was used in the 1999 movie For Love of the Game, the 2014 documentary film Life Itself, and as the theme song to the RTE television show of the same name which is a historical Irish documentary covering one year per episode.
