‘Old Friend / Bookends.’

I don’t consider this a sad song, except in the way that an old love may be sad.

‘Mrs. Robinson.’

Picked solely for the Joe Dimaggio reference.  Seriously.

[UPDATE] Via comments is the link to the piece that triggered this. I couldn’t remember last night where I saw it.

‘America.’

Nope, actually, feeling a bit chipper right now. Got a story out the door today; sure, it’s not its first time on the circuit, but it still feels pretty nice to send it off. So the mood is good, actually. Why were you asking?

‘The Sounds of Silence.’

My wife and I decided to torment the children today by singing to them in the car. This was my entry: she went with Irish drinking songs. Ah, the simple joys of parenthood…

‘America.’

I’ve decided that Bernie Sanders can’t have this one. He doesn’t deserve this one.

‘Cecilia.’

This is not a happy song as much as it as a happy song for Simon & Garfunkel.

‘Cold?’ Or ‘Sterile?’ …Either way, eh, I’ve already given my opinion on the style of this band.

…Actually, Paul, I think that the folks on the Turnpike were actually doing their daily commute.  I’ve been meaning to mention that for about, well, let’s not depress each other by having me say just how many decades it’s been since I heard this song for the first time.

“Bookends.”

Their stuff was often pretty, but it was almost always very cold.

They really weren’t very happy a lot, that generation?  Poor bastards.

Remind me not to look up how old these guys must be by now, OK?
