Review about Paul Simon songs
Ghost Atlantic | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Old Friends performed by Paul Simon

I visited my son and his music partner at the studio (Arcadia, Portland, Maine).....while they were finishing up loose ends of their second album, "GHOST ATLANTIC" (untitled).....while breaking, Pete Himmer joked that he and my son, Trevor Smith, were akin to 'Simon and Garfunkel'......I can only hope so....my heart belonged to them....for a few weeks, long ago, yet still near to my heart......a few YEARS....and , still, "every day's an endless stream of cigarettes and magazines...." Love to my son, Trev, who is following his dream....Pete, who is at times leading...but always 'side by side'...........and, sometimes..still, " We all come to look for America"....I will forever love Simon and Garfunkel....for all they gave us, sometimes in the secret listenings...and to Trev and Pete, (Ghost Atlantic).......who are fortunate enough never to have to hide...for any reason...because of Paul, Art....and a bit later, ME !

The story of almost everyone's life | Reviewer: Puku
    ------ About the song The Boxer performed by Paul Simon

Well, I think that there is no actual boxer at all. The young kid, who runs away to NYC to seek his fortune and gets to know all about life is the theme.
At the end we have the boxing metaphor, because like a boxer who carries all the scars with him and can never forget them, the man-which the boy-has now become, has experienced events in his life in NYC, which he can never forget, wherever he goes. At every instance, when life was hard, the boy wanted to go home but he never did because he knew that the solutions were never there in his home, nor will they ever be. Each of us has to chart our own way in life and accept what we get. There are no second chances. Truly, prolific lyrics

Classic Poetry about the failure to appreciate what we have. | Reviewer: Sound-Sop
    ------ About the song Slip Slidin' Away performed by Paul Simon

Glory Cloud Revelation - Paul Simon is Jewish. Songs are allowed to be interpreted by the listener, but I doubt that this song has any of the biblical meanings to the writer as you pose. Those are in fact your views. It's more likely the more literal translation of the lyrics. This song is about our collective failure to truly appreciate the love that we have in our lives right in front of us. We have more than we think and we get caught up in the minutia of life and fail to appreciate.

    ------ About the song Father And Daughter performed by Paul Simon

I LOVE MY FATHER!but i can't be frank to him.when i share any problems he may feel guilty. so i just react happily when he asks me about my problems.

great music | Reviewer: Jim A
    ------ About the song Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard performed by Paul Simon

of course you can find a deeper meaning if you try, but just on the surface this song starts with a great acoustical guitar riff and follows with well phrased and metered lyrics with some not so easy notes to sing.
find any meaning that makes you happy, it's still a great tune.

Secret song for my grandson and me since he was 2 and I was I was 48 | Reviewer: Tata
    ------ About the song You Can Call Me Al performed by Paul Simon

Our first grandson and I were alone during a thunder storm and to keep his mind off the storm, we turned the TV to a music channel and it was on. It was the video
Of Chevy Chase and Paul. Since that day, we've texted and called each other about 4 times a year and I called him Al and he returned with Betty. Such a dear secret for us to share. When he was married and about 25 he bought a new boat and put the song on his playlist on his boat stereo . What a tearful moment when he took us riding the first time and turned the song o. Loud!

Not "single", "sailor" | Reviewer: Klaus Nothnagel
    ------ About the song Kodachrome performed by Paul Simon

When I listen to the song, I hear something different than is written in the lyrics here:

"If you took all the girls I knew when I was SAILOR" - not "when I was single".

What do you hear??

Haunting | Reviewer: Faith
    ------ About the song Graceland performed by Paul Simon

Powerful song. The words grip me every time I hear it. About love and death and loss and the past and dealing with life in between... How do we do it? I think the song is telling us we must be spiritual in some kind of way to survive it all.

Slip Slidin' Away | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation
    ------ About the song Slip Slidin' Away performed by Paul Simon

Since this song came on twice while I was here, I think I'm supposed to write this review. I've always enjoyed Paul Simon's voice, and the melodies to his songs. However, this time, I've got to say that I don't enjoy the words to this song that much because it's all about losing what's the most important thing next to your relationship with God. That is your relationship with your family that the song says is "slip slidin' away".
The bible says ;Death and Life is in the power of the tongue", " As a man (mankind) thinketh so is he" (Proverbs 18:21)(Proverbs 23:7). Therefore, if we want to take advantage of this ancient wisdom, we need to guard our heart, by guarding what we hear and say. (I do say think that the intention of Paul Simon in emphasizing the "slip slidin away" was to call attention to it, so that we wouldn't let go of what is important to us before we lose it or too much damage is done.
The line of the man loving his woman so much that he thinks he' gonna disappear is, possibly, whether the song writer knew it or not, the conviction to not love anyone more than the LORD. (Revelation 2:4) The father who wanted to bring understanding to his son by communicating to him his reasons behind his decisions. Maybe, let pride or being too busy interfere with a closer relationship that they both needed. I believe, being a song writer, myself, that Paul Simon was trying to call our attention to these things so we could recognize the importance of our relationships being worth the time to enhance before they slip away because he calls what we're slip slidden away from our 'destination'. It's a good song if you understand it enough to bring out the good in you.


Coat of Chrome | Reviewer: WarPony
    ------ About the song Kodachrome performed by Paul Simon

Some lyrics you just make up because the words are not always clear (Bennie and the jets" for example by Elton John: walrus suit and electric boobs, etc - ha ha).

I thought he was singing about getting high on spleef- a "coat of chrome" to the mindset would brighten colors and make for a shiney day, so "mamma" don't be a buzz kill. IDK, it was fun to sing when young, even if I only recently thought of its possible meaning.
