Tall L and I saw Paul Simon tonight. Here's what I learned about Paul Simon: he is TINY. He's so little. You think you know how little he is, but he's littler than that. (Tall L is convinced that Paul Simon's leg is as long as her arm.) And he's adorable. He has goofy little gestures and dances and stuff. Very cute.
Most modern moment: While he was playing the intro to "Only Living Boy in New York," he said, "I used to do this song a lot, but I forgot about it until I saw the movie Garden State."
Most amusing moment: "I'm doing a lot of songs from this group I used to be in called Simon & Garfunkel. I played the part of Simon. I never felt like I got enough credit for that."
Most exciting performance: "You Can Call Me Al." It was a rockin' rendition.
Best song I'd never heard before: "Duncan" - turns out to be from his first solo album.
Best dance party of the evening: Parking lot, waiting for traffic to clear out a little, "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes." Some other people were listening to it out of the back of their truck, so we danced along at Tall's car.
Ok, I was a little disappointed that he didn't play: "Sounds of Silence." Or anything off Rhythm of the Saints. But he did "The Boxer" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Graceland" and "Still Crazy After All These Years" and - yeah, it was a pretty good concert.
