♫ Remembering the 70s ♫: DO IT AGAIN by Steely Dan (Jazz-Rock)

Do It Again” is a tune composed by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, performed by American jazz-rock group Steely Dan, which was released as a single from their 1972 debut album Can’t Buy a Thrill. The single version differed from the album version, shortening the intro, outro and two instrumental sections of the song.

The lyrics are sung to a man who is addicted to nightlife. His addictions include sex and gambling. The narrator describes the realities of the man’s addictions and the consequences of his actions, but emphasizes that he goes “back, Jack, do it again”, implying that it is an addiction.
