Twenty-five tunes you've never heard because you were not listening: #3 Paul Simon -- Stranded in a Limousine

Yeah, yeah, I hope we have all heard of Paul Simon. This tune is an old personal favorite. It is from the soundtrack of the forgotten 1980 film One Trick Pony in which Paul Simon plays a musician. As I recall, it's a pretty good flick, probably pretty truthful about what the record industry was like in the 1970s.

For those of us born in the late 60s and early 70s, Paul Simon was a big part of the soundtrack of our childhood. Simon's, now out of print, Greatest Hits Etc was the soundtrack for some of my most sober moments in college. If you need more Simon, hunt down There Goes Rhymin' Simon and Live Rhymin'. These two recording cover a range from folk music to Rhythm and Blues. I'm partial but some of you may need to knock the dust off of it.
