It was only a matter of time before I did a Paul Simon one. Unfortunately I don’t have an obscure song to promote – his best album simply is Graceland, and one of the tracks I especially enjoy is Boy in the Bubble.
Boy in the Bubble curiously applies to stuff I hear all the time during my studyage of New Media; about surveillance and information society and the relation between Man and his tools and so on. It’s not the reason I like it though.
The song has an addictive accordion thingy running through it as well as a tuba-ish sound. Yay for wind instruments. It’s also got Paul’s distinctive friendly voice and if you care for the video, it’ll sometimes feature his friendly face.
