“Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard.”


Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard, Paul Simon

I know that I’ve already done this one this year, but funny story here (yeah, prepared to be bored, I know): my wife doesn’t listen to a lot of the music that I do, and she’s a few years younger than me, so we don’t have all that much overlap in pop music.  So we’re driving back home from visiting her dad, I put on some music to pass the time, she can only hear it 75% anyway because of the air conditioning.  So she listens, and after a minute goes “What is this?  It sounds like Simon and Garfunkel, only happy.”

So of course I laugh.

  1. I’ve always thought that those peculiar background noises sound like mating guinea pigs.

  2. There’s a punk band here in Georgia whose thing seems to be covering Simon & Garfunkel songs. I have them doing _Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard_ on cd, but I heard them live doing _I Am A Rock_, which was particularly surreal.
