What happens when you take Steely Dan’s “Do It Again” and mash it up with Mötley Crüe’s “Looks That Kill?” You get a song that rock fans are either going to totally love, or totally hate. Everyone we’ve shared this with has been on either extreme … there doesn’t seem to be any in-between on this one musical marriage.
For the record, “Looks That Kill” by Mötley Crüe was released as a single on January 4, 1984 off the group’s second album Shout at the Devil. It spent a surprising 10 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, peaking at #54 and #12 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks,
“Do It Again,” of course, was composed by Walter Becker and Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, and was released as a single from their 1972 debut album Can’t Buy a Thrill. It debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 18, 1972, and reached number 6 on the US charts in 1973, making it Steely Dan’s second highest charting single.
Love it or hate it?
PLEASE NOTE: There’s a YouTube warning at the beginning of the video saying their’s some kind of “inappropriate or offensive material” in the video and you have to click through to see it. I’ve watched it several times and the only thing someone might find offensive is the merging of these two songs together. Nothing else.
