about

Paul Simon is ... well, first off, he's super awesome. We can all agree on that right? He amazes me because he's been writing music for, nearly 50 years! And he's been popular and relevant that whole time and has never really lost his artistic integrity in the eyes of his fans (like me).

Graceland is one of my favorite albums and still kind of held up as the perfect pop record. 2 of this month's songs are from that album, so that says something. The music Paul is writing today is just as honest and beautiful as it ever was, and he's never felt stagnant, he's always changing, growing, evolving, and it's fascinating to be along for the ride.

Other artists from his era are still writing music (I'm looking at you Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney) but they're not - in my opinion - acheiving the same level of re-invention and relevance, they're more cashing in on their previous success and kind of phoning it in. Paul Simon's got his fair share of misses mixed in with the hits, but I feel like he's never been one to phone it in, and I respect the hell out of that.
