SONG: Paul Simon

“Train in the Distance” [acoustic version]

Wow. Earlier I was literally paralyzed by the beauty of this track. So much so that I missed a phone call (which I’m guessing was a listener calling to inform me of the sad news that Phil Everly has passed).

This is another cut from the Paul Simon Complete Album Collection that came out this year (and includes dozens of bonus tracks). I think the absolute artistry of Paul Simon’s songwriting just completely takes a hold of me when I can hear it so starkly with just a guitar.

I think this became one of my all-time favorite songs tonight.
