Kodachrome - Paul Simon

Recommended Posts

that was really cute. :)

I had a lightbulb moment a couple of years ago with the line, "If you took all the girls I knew when I was single and brought 'em all together for one night, I know they'd never match my sweet imagination... 'cause everything looks worse in black and white." I literally did the :doh: thing when it hit me what that meant... :crazy:

You're all too kind.

I was asked to explain one additional point about this song's current relevance, so I shall. I often revive old songs in relation to their release dates (e.g. this song was release in early May 1973 and I burned it on a disk with other 70's songs released around the same time throughout the decade) and this one grew on me throughout the las couple months as I envisioned the lyrics, and realized how closely it resembled my own view points of high-school, past girlfriends, and how pictures have been, and are still, so very important to me.

It was a powerful, and introspective evaluation.
