Diggin’ This: Paul Simon – “Wristband”
Further proof, as if any was needed, that Paul Simon is one of the world’s greatest living songwriters.
Love this rhythmic beat groove courtesy of producer Clap! Clap! and, as always, Paul Simon’s lyrical storytelling that somehow perfectly illustrates a universally relatable experience while instantly beaming you straight to the streets of New York City.
With its inventive percussive propulsion and NYC-centric lyrics, “Wristband” is just asking to be covered, reworked, and remixed by James Murphy. Can we make this happen?
Track of the day.
