Song of the Day # 64 Simon & Garfunkel

'I've got nothing to do today but smile.'
No, not 'When I'm 64'! There are some songs that when you hear them take you unerringly back to a time and place you heard them before and the person you were listening to them with. This is one for me. A kind of love letter from Simon to Garfunkel even as they were splitting up. Art was flying down to Mexico to film Catch 22. Paul back in New York. 'Hey, let your honesty shine'. What a thing to say to someone just as you're saying it to the whole world. It's as light as a feather. B Side to Cecilia. It should really have been the other way round.
