According to Wikipedia, "the 'I.G.Y.' of the title refers to the 'International Geophysical Year', an event that ran from July 1957 to December 1958. The I.G.Y. was an international scientific project promoting collaboration among the world's scientists. Fagen's lyrics reference futuristic concepts such as solar-powered cities, a transatlantic tunnel, permanent space stations, and spandex jackets."

The more I hear this song, the More I keep thinking that it would've made a better theme song for a TV show...not sure if it's for a Drama or a Comedy, but it's Cheesy enough to be something for TV.

Was there ever an official video released with this song? I mean apart from the creative work of Youtube posters?

Yeah , I was raised on the same ideologyThe moonshot was the big IGY for me. But I think Fagen is poking fun at us on how it didn't turn out and it all went South in the end.My biggest problem is we don't have men or women of great vision or decision with our political leaders anymore.Its all about the re-election cycle and short term vision to keep whoever is in power. What have we lost ? CM .
