Is there anything more beautiful than a handsomely typed page?
Thanks for reminding me about this beautiful track, Reens. I had never really thought about what the lyrics meant and (I'm ashamed to say) had always vaguely associated it with that big-mouthed irritating guy from Scrubs and Wes Anderson for using S&G songs like this in their films. Pleased to be reclaiming it.x K
Great choice. This song is also dear to me, being a native New Yorker myself. Their songs are really timeless, aren't they?
S&G did some timeless tracks all right. I'm only now really getting into them, in terms of close listening. On Bridge Over Troubled Water every song is like a distinct package. Great stuff.Oh, Katie, speaking of New York, you might like this (such a simple but effective idea!):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvHRUY0tBcs
What a great idea! He should do a series of them in radically different neighbourhoods...Only 4 more sleeps! (and a 20 hour plane trip)x K
