Some early 80s jazz pop for the weekend

This week we have two cool jazz/pop tracks from 1982.
The first is from Steely Dan member Donald Fagen from his massively popular solo debut album “The Nightfly”.

Next we have British band Imagination who had a string of hits in the early 80s with their slow beat, piano led tracks fronted by Leee John’s distinctive vocals. This is the title track from their second album.
