Happiness as Anarchy #42: Still Crazy After All These Years

I’ve been listening to Still Crazy After All These Years since 1982. This is the version I know, from Simon and Garfunkel’s concert in Central Park. My parents must have bought the vinyl when it was first released and some years later made me a copy on cassette to listen to in my bedroom. As all the great musicians do, Simon and Garfunkel had a stellar band with them and allowed the musicians room to shine. I love the keyboards in particular on this track, and the groove – it has such amazing groove. As I get older I love the lyrics more and more – they seem to get closer to the truth as the years go by.
