Excellent job. I have listened to this song so many times (like a lot of others) that as I grew older, I started focusing on some parts of the song that weren't apparent to me in my youth. For example, the bass guitar line on this song is great. So many later rock and roll songs' base lines just followed the rhythm guitar, very boring. The days of bassists like John Paul Jones and John Entwistle are long gone (some exceptions, of course), so this song is a refreshing example of the time when many bassists actually knew how to play.

Embarrassing fact: I didn't realize until just a few years ago that the original singer was Gerry Rafferty, later of "Baker Street" fame.
