Review about Paul Simon songs
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.

It Is What It Is | Reviewer: Bob
    ------ About the song Kodachrome performed by Paul Simon

I remember hearing an interview with Simon back in 1973, the same year KODACHROME was released and made the charts. He said the song was at face value, that he writes "absolute music," music for music's sake. The lyrics don't have any hidden meaning. They're about taking pictures, that's all.

To those who thought this was a 60's song, sorry, no. And to those looking for some profound message, sorry to disappoint!

    ------ About the song American Tune performed by Paul Simon

say whatever you want about political views, but the great part about this song is that it means something different to everyone who hears it, like all great art does. for me, this song makes me remember how i felt after hearing the news that my good friend committed suicide. the lines "im all right, im all right. im just weary to my bones. still you dont expect to be bright and bon vivant, so far away from home. so far away from home." completely sums up how i felt after crying my eyes out for several hours. the song is universal, and i dont believe that it was a political statement. at the time it was written, alot of shit was going on with the war and politics, but the song itself is paul simon singing about how he felt. how stretched thin his soul was from all the terrible things happening around him. how he just needed to get some rest.

crap n stuff | Reviewer: Kitty Conrad
    ------ About the song Kodachrome performed by Paul Simon

I'm amazed at how folks will get their shorts in a wad over their varying interpretations of somebody else's "true meaning." My opinion is Ka-ching got it right. But, whatever, I'm surprised that I can't find a website that talks about the original alternative lyrics. In some small towns, the word "crap" was censored. An alternative version played in those markets, with the words: When I think back on all the stuff I learned in high school.

    ------ About the song St. Judy's Comet performed by Paul Simon

I lost my wife, JUDY, in Jan. of 2011. Our youngest daughter,Linda 38, had another baby on Aug. 20, 2013. When our oldest daughter, Kim, found out that Linda had to go back into the hospital after Liam, the baby, was born. She packed a bag and shot down here from Little Rock. The hospital let Linda keep the baby in the room with her while the doctors tried to dissolve the blood clot they found. Kim helped Aaron, Linda's husband, take care of the baby. When the baby was sleeping and Aaron knocked out Kim did research to find a lullaby to use to calm Liam when he got fidgety and restless. She found Paul Simon's St Judy's Comet and it works EVERY time. We all have it on our phones now. There is no doubt in my mind that Liam's grandmother, who he will only see photos of as he grows up, is holding and calming him every time we play this song.

    ------ About the song The Boxer performed by Paul Simon

Said perfectly. My Father boxed professionally in the old days; Florida, Havana. Could have gone all the way to New York but opted to become Unlimited Master Sea Captain. I boxed golden gloves later, had other fights. He and I never lost. I was an accomplished pro musician, sax, too, since a kid. I am a Psychologist now for forty years. Worst part is, I still love boxing. Cage-fighting is an abomination. Your analysis of the song is right. It is, finally, about Life. The song has haunted me for years. Love all those kids boxing, too. Thanks for your analysis. Beautiful. Gave credit to that composition.

    ------ About the song American Tune performed by Paul Simon

I haerd this song as a teneager, loved it but didn't understand it. Heard it the week after 9/11 and cried my eyes out. Even down to "tommorow's goin' to be another working day and I'm trying to get some rest" . Do you remember Mayer Juliano asked people in New Yotrk that night to go home, get some rest and come in to work the next morning. Wierd but always beautiful.
