24MAR2018 – Quote of the Day

Now, Paul Simon is a commie and a friend of Woodie Allen but that commie can really write a good lyric.

 

“And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made

And the sign flashed out its warning

In the words that it was forming

And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls

And whispered in the sounds of silence”

 

Excerpt from “The Sounds of Silence” by Paul Simon

    Now you’ve done it, that song will be on loop play in my brain all day.

      As a kid in Brooklyn, Simon and Garfunkel sort of provided the soundtrack to my younger days. As I said, a pinko commie I’m sure but a very able word smith.
