Keith Jarrett - "Long As You Know You're Living Yours"

Yesterday was Keith Jarrett's birthday. (He's 69.) Being a Steely Dan nut, I know the man mostly because he sued the band for how closely their 1980 song "Gaucho" sounded to his 1974 track "Long As You Know You're Living Yours." As a result, he was able to get his name added to the songwriting credits -- not to mention a cut of future royalties. The similarities are undeniable.
