Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel

ぼくにとって「初めての洋楽」は、サイモン&ガーファンクルでした。中学~高校時代には片っ端からギターでコピーしました。いまでも"Overs"とか弾いています。

    Simon & Garfunkel / Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.(Columbia, CL 2249)<released ; October 19, 1964> サイモン&ガーファンクルのデビュー作。ギター、ウッド・ベース、バンジョーなどアコースティック楽器のみで作られています。オリジナルの"The Sound of Silence"もいいですが、静謐な"Bleecker Street"や穏やかな讃美歌"Benedictus"など聴きどころはたくさんあります。USオリジナル盤自体少ないですが、プロモはまず見かけません。

    このアルバムの1曲と言われれば、僕はこれです!

    Simon & Garfunkel / Sounds Of Silence (Columbia, CL 2469) <January 17, 1966>

    オリジナルは①モノラルの初期盤はSound Of Silenceが青字で曲目記載がありません。「including 'Homeward Bound'」の記載もありません。② ジャケの裏面の3枚の写真の一枚(二人が同時に写っている一番大きな写真)のガーファンクルが「Tiger Beat Magazine」をポケットに入れています(後に修正されて黒塗りにされます)。ガーファンクル一人の写真では右手に同雑誌を持っていますが、これも修正されます。③'ANJI'の記載にばらつきがあります。'ANJI - In Manuscript'とか 'ANJI - Written by Davy Graham, one of England's finest jazz/blues guitarists'などと記載されていたり、'ANGIE'と記載されたり・・・。ちなみに最初期は「ANGIE」記載です。④ラベルは「2eye」(ロゴマークが二つ)です。⑤裏ジャケの下端の曲目が一切記載されていないものは本当に珍しいです。

    表題曲はもちろん、若者らしく虚無的な"Leaves That Are Green"、まるでマザーグースの作品のように簡素な"April Come She Will"など、このアルバムにもいい曲が多いです。それらの中でも、オチになって初めて意味が分かる"I Am A Rock"が好きでした。

    "I Am A Rock"

    A winter's day
    In a deep and dark December
    I am alone
    Gazing from my window
    To the streets below
    On a freshly fallen, silent shroud of snow
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I've built walls
    A fortress, steep and mighty
    That none may penetrate
    I have no need of friendship
    Friendship causes pain.
    It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    Don't talk of love
    Well, I've heard the words before
    It's sleeping in my memory
    And I won't disturb the slumber
    Of feelings that have died
    If I never loved, I never would have cried
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I have my books
    And my poetry to protect me
    I am shielded in my armor
    Hiding in my room
    Safe within my womb
    I touch no one and no one touches me
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    And a rock feels no pain
    And an island never cries

    このアルバムで1曲と言えば、アーティの素晴らしい歌が聴けるこれです!幻想的で霧の中を歩くような気がします。

    "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her"

    What a dream I had
    Pressed in organdy
    Clothed in crinoline of smoky burgundy
    Softer than the rain
    I wandered empty streets
    Down past the shop displays
    I heard cathedral bells
    Tripping down the alley ways
    As I walked on

    And when you ran to me
    Your cheeks flushed with the night
    We walked on frosted fields
    Of juniper and lamplight
    I held your hand

    And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
    I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
    Oh, I love you, girl
    Oh, I love you

    マトは2枚とも同じですね。ジャケはオリジナルではないです。というか、ステレオ盤。。。。

    先日(2018年5月19日)のコンサート途中で"The Cool, Cool River"の歌詞を忘れるという失態を犯したPaul Simonは「自分への罰」「嫌いな曲を演奏する」と言ってこの曲をやったそうです。いい曲だと思うんですが。

    "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xhJcQEfD5s

    Slow down, you move too fast
    You got to make the morning last
    Just kicking down the cobblestones
    Looking for fun and feelin' groovy
    Ba da da da da da da, feelin' groovy

    Hello, lamppost, what'cha knowin'?
    I've come to watch your flowers growin'
    Ain't'cha got no rhymes for me?
    Doot-in doo-doo, feelin' groovy
    Ba da da da da da da, feelin' groovy

    I got no deeds to do
    No promises to keep
    I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
    Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
    Life, I love you
    All is groovy

    Simon & Garfunkel, Dave Grusin / The Graduate (Original Sound Track Recording) (US, Columbia, OS 3180) <January 21, 1968> MAT ; 1A / 1A

    サイモン&ガーファンクル+デイヴ・グルーシンによる映画「卒業」のサンドトラック・アルバムです。

    この作品は、1968年1月末に発表され1968年4月6日から5月24日まで7週連続でビルボードのアルバム・チャートでNo.1となりました。5月25日からは4月に発売されたサイモン&ガーファンクルの4作目『ブックエンド』がビルボードのアルバム・チャートNo.1になり、6月15日付から22日付にかけて再び本サントラ作がNo.1に返り咲き、その後はまた『ブックエンド』が1位になるという珍現象が起きています。

    リアルタイムで聴いていた世代の方々には思い入れがあるアルバムだそうですが、実際には発表された曲の同一テイクの再収録+デイヴ・グルーシンのインストを中心に構成されているだけで、後追い世代的にはS&G作品としての魅力に欠けると感じます。

    ただ、1stアルバムや2ndアルバムに収録された2つと別テイクの「サウンド・オブ・サイレンス」が入っているだけでも、十分に価値を感じます。

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqHr_m4gBfk

    "The Sound Of Silence"

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a streetlamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    No one dare
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools" said I, "You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you"
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said "The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence"

    1971年1-3月に録音された、ポール・サイモンの実質的なソロ・デビュー作。ワールド・ミュージックを取り入れての多彩な音楽に圧倒されます。名曲だらけの大名盤。

    長い間ずーっと見張っていますが、白ラベル盤を見かけません。おそらく存在しないものと思われます。マトリクスは、なんと4H/4G・・・・さすがにもっと若いコピーがありそうなので、もう少し頑張って探します。

    When I think back
    On all the crap I learned in high school
    It’s a wonder
    I can think at all
    And though my lack of education
    Hasn’t hurt me none
    I can read the writing on the wall

    Kodachrome
    They give us those nice bright colors
    They give us the greens of summers
    Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, Oh yeah
    I got a Nikon camera
    I love to take a photograph
    So mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

    If you took all the girls I knew
    When I was single
    And brought them all together for one night
    I know they’d never match
    My sweet imagination
    Everything looks worse in black and white

    Kodachrome
    They give us those nice bright colors
    They give us the greens of summers
    Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, Oh yeah
    I got a Nikon camera
    I love to take a photograph
    So mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away
    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

    Mama don’t take my Kodachrome
    Leave your boy so far from home

    (SIDE 2) P BL 32855-1F 1 T

    1973年7月10日録音、翌74年3月に発売されたライヴ盤。このころのColumbia盤には多分白ラベルが存在しないんではないかと思います。少なくとも、1971年の"Paul Simon", 1973年の"There Goes Rhymin' Simon"とこのライヴ盤では、通常盤と同じ赤ラベルしか見たことがありません。この時期で僕が好きなColumbia盤で思い出すのはJanis Joplinの"Pearl"やTim Hardinの"Bird On A Wire"などですが、あのあたりも白ラベルが見当たりませんしね。

    ところで、このライヴ盤は内容も本当に素晴らしいです。"Duncan"とか"American Tune"とか、オリジナルのスタジオ録音よりも良いんでは?という演奏が連続してびっくりします。"The Boxer"は正規録音ではカットされた歌詞を歌い喝采を浴びてます。

    このライブ盤での"Dancan"の演奏が特に好きなので貼り付けたかったのですが、探している途中で数年前に有名になった映像を見つけたので、そちらにしました。ファンをステージに上げて"Duncan"を歌わせてしまったというハプニング。歌ってる女の子の笑顔も、ポールの笑顔も最高です。

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXBlY5CImUU

    "Duncan"

    Couple in the next room
    Bound to win a prize
    They've been going at it all night long
    Well, I'm trying to get some sleep
    But these motel walls are cheap
    Lincoln Duncan is my name
    And here's my song, here's my song.

    My father was a fisherman
    My mama was the fisherman's friend
    And I was born in the boredom
    And the chowder
    So when I reached my prime
    I left my home in the Maritimes
    Headed down the turnpike for
    New England, sweet New England

    Holes In my confidence
    Holes In the knees of my jeans
    I was left without a penny in my pocket
    Oo-we I was about destituted
    As a kid could be
    And I wished I wore a ring
    So I could hock it, I'd like to hock it.

    A young girl in a parking lot
    Was preaching to a crowd
    Singing sacred songs and reading
    From the Bible
    Well, I told her I was lost
    And she told me all about the Pentecost
    And I seen that girl as the road
    To my survival

    Just later on the very same night
    When I crept to her tent with a flashlight
    And my long years of innocence ended
    Well, she took me to the woods
    Saying here comes something and it feels so good
    And just like a dog I was befriended, I was befriended.

    Oh, oh, what a night
    Oh what a garden of delight
    Even now that sweet memory lingers
    I was playing my guitar
    Lying underneath the stars
    Just thanking the Lord
    For my fingers,
    For my fingers

    ポール・サイモンの1975年の傑作。グラミー賞の最優秀アルバム賞と男性ポップ・ボーカル部門の2部門を受賞しています。解散以来初めてアートとデュエットしたこの曲が収められたことでも話題になりました。

    "My Little Town"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01XyozcFLXA

    In my little town
    I grew up believing
    God keeps his eye on us all
    And He used to lean upon me
    As I pledged allegiance to the wall
    Lord, I recall
    My little town
    Coming home after school
    Flying my bike past the gates
    Of the factories
    My mom doing the laundry
    Hanging our shirts
    In the dirty breeze

    And after it rains
    There's a rainbow
    And all of the colors are black
    It's not that the colors aren't there
    It's just imagination they lack
    Everything's the same
    Back in my little town

    Nothing but the dead and dying
    Back in my little town
    Nothing but the dead and dying
    Back in my little town

    In my little town
    I never meant nothin'
    I was just my father's son
    Saving my money
    Dreaming of glory
    Twitching like a finger
    On the trigger of a gun
    Leaving nothing but the dead and dying
    Back in my little town

    Nothing but the dead and dying
    Back in my little town
    Nothing but the dead and dying
    Back in my little town

    "The Boxer"と同様に、ポール・サイモンの自伝的な意味合いのある歌なのかなと思いながら聴きました。"Nothing but the dead and dying back in my little town"なんて歌ってしまったとしたら、それはそれで勇気がいるなと。Stingが生まれた町についてインタビューで「いい町だよ、つばを吐き捨てるには」というような軽口をたたいたら、次の日にはその町にいる兄から怒りの電話がかかってきて平謝りした・・・というエピソードを思い出しました。

    本当に好きな作品です。美しい旋律・アレンジとは裏腹に、歌詞はかなり辛辣だったりしますが。

    "Still Crazy After All These Years"

    I met my old lover
    On the street last night
    She seemed so glad to see me
    I just smiled
    And we talked about some old times
    And we drank ourselves some beers
    Still crazy after all these years
    Still crazy after all these years

    I'm not the kind of man
    Who tends to socialize
    I seem to lean on
    Old familiar ways
    And I ain't no fool for love songs
    That whisper in my ears
    Still crazy after all these years
    Still crazy after all these years

    Four in the morning
    Crapped out
    Yawning
    Longing my life away
    I'll never worry
    Why should I?
    It's all gonna fade

    Now I sit by my window
    And I watch the cars
    I fear I'll do some damage
    One fine day
    But I would not be convicted
    By a jury of my peers
    Still crazy after all these years
    Still crazy
    Still crazy
    Still crazy after all these years

    Paul Simon / Still Crazy After All These Years (US, Columbia, PC 33540, ADVANCED!) <October 25, 1975>

    Advanced Copyを見つけました!!ラベルの上端は通常と異なり「ADVENCE PROMOTION」になっています(通常のWhite Label Promoでは「DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE」と印刷されています)。ちなみに、マトは3A / 3Bです。マト的にはこの辺が最初期でしょうか?もっと若いのがあるのでしょうか??テスト・プレスも探していますが、なかなか見ませんね。

    この曲の印象的なフレーズは、スティーヴ・ガッドがドラムでウォーミング・アップしているときに叩いたフレーズと聞いたことがあります。アルバム発表後の12月に2枚目のシングルとして発表され、3週間ビルボードNo.1になりました。

    "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover"

    "The problem is all inside your head"
    She said to me
    "The answer is easy if you
    Take it logically
    I'd like to help you in your struggle
    To be free
    There must be fifty ways
    To leave your lover"

    She said, "It's really not my habit to intrude
    Furthermore, I hope my meaning
    Won't be lost or misconstrued
    But I'll repeat myself
    At the risk of being crude
    There must be fifty ways
    To leave your lover
    Fifty ways to leave your lover"

    You just slip out the back, Jack
    Make a new plan, Stan
    You don't need to be coy, Roy
    Just get yourself free
    Hop on the bus, Gus
    You don't need to discuss much
    Just drop off the key, Lee
    And get yourself free

    Ooh, slip out the back, Jack
    Make a new plan, Stan
    You don't need to be coy, Roy
    Just listen to me
    Hop on the bus, Gus
    You don't need to discuss much
    Just drop off the key, Lee
    And get yourself free

    She said, "It grieves me so
    To see you in such pain
    I wish there was something I could do
    To make you smile again"
    I said, "I appreciate that
    And would you please explain
    About the fifty ways?"

    She said, "Why don't we both
    Just sleep on it tonight
    And I believe in the morning
    You'll begin to see the light"
    And then she kissed me
    And I realized she probably was right
    There must be fifty ways
    To leave your lover
    Fifty ways to leave your lover

    You just slip out the back, Jack
    Make a new plan, Stan
    You don't need to be coy, Roy
    Just get yourself free
    Hop on the bus, Gus
    You don't need to discuss much
    Just drop off the key, Lee
    And get yourself free

    Slip out the back, Jack
    Make a new plan, Stan
    You don't need to be coy, Roy
    Just listen to me
    Hop on the bus, Gus
    You don't need to discuss much

    Paul Simon / Still Crazy After All These Years (US, Columbia, PC 33540) <October 25, 1975> 番外編

    "Advance Promotion" の「3A/3B」を筆頭に、"DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" の「3A/3B」, つづけて「3D / 3C」, 「3F / 3F」の4種類を載せておきます。白ラベルでこれだけマトの変遷が見られるものは珍しいです。

    ちなみに、聴き比べたらわかるかというと、僕の貧弱なシステムでは全く判別不能です。完全にオタクの趣味です。自分でもおかしいと思うので断捨離を始めたわけですが。

    "Gone At Last"

    The night was black, the roads were icy
    Snow was fallin', drifts were high
    And I was weary, from my driving
    And I stopped to rest for awhile
    I sat down at a truck stop
    I was thinking about my past
    I've had a long streak of that bad luck
    But I'm praying it's gone at last

    [CHORUS:]
    Gone at last, gone at last
    Gone at last, gone at last
    I had a long streak of bad luck
    But I pray it's gone at last
    Oo,oo,oo...

    I ain't dumb
    I kicked around some
    I don't fall too easily
    But that boy looked so dejected
    He just grabbed my sympathy
    Sweet little soul now, what's your problem?
    Tell me why you're so downcast
    I've had a long streak of bad luck
    But I pray it's gone at last

    [CHORUS]

    Once in a while from out of nowhere
    When you don't expect it, and you're unprepared
    Somebody will come and lift you higher
    And your burdens will be shared
    Yes I do believe, if I hadn't met you
    I might still be sinking fast
    I've had a long streak of that bad luck
    But I pray it's gone at last

    [CHORUS]

    このアルバムの発表前の1975年8月に出たファースト・シングルはPhoebe Snow と the Jessy Dixon Singersを起用してのこの曲。邦題は「哀しみにさようなら」でした。

    ソロになってわずか5年でベストを出すのもどうかと思いましたが、、、、でもまあ、当時は便利な一枚ではありました。A面の冒頭の2曲 "Slip Slidin' Away", "Stranded In A Limousine" は新曲で、しかもCDは早々に廃盤になったため、地味な後者は長らくデジタルでは入手困難でしたが、いまはどうなってるのかな。。。

    Paul Simon / One-Trick Pony (US, Warner Bros. HS 3472) <August 12,1980> 

    本作品のプロモはたくさん見ましたが、白ラベルはありません。この商品のマトは以下の通り;
    Matrix / Runout (A Side Etched): HS 1 3472 WA2 #2 37877-A
    Matrix / Runout (B Side Etched): HS 2 3472 WA5 37877-B #2

     Late in the Eveningは素晴らしい曲ですし、さだまさしがカヴァーしたJonahも大好きな曲です。ただアルバムを通して聴くと、前作品のようには楽しめませんでした。。
     ポール・サイモンというと、「明日に架ける橋」以降ずっと様々なワールド・ミュージックを取り入れてきた人です。僕は非西洋音楽が持つ「西洋音楽にない濁りや揺らぎ」が好きなのですが、本作品のように凄腕のミュージシャンを集めた音楽は「カチッとはまりすぎているのが、どうも・・・」という気がします。音楽の才能がある人にはきっといい作品なんだろうなと思ってますが、僕には「ポールの作品で最も聴かない作品」です。

    "Late In The Evening"
    (from "One-Trick Pony" soundtrack)

    The first thing I remember
    I was lying In my bed
    I couldn't of been no more
    Than one or two
    I remember there's a radio
    Comin' from the room next door
    And my mother laughed
    The way some ladies do
    When it's late in the evening
    And the music s seeping through

    The next thing I remember
    I am walking down the street
    I'm feeling all right
    I'm with my boys
    I'm with my troops, yeah
    And down along the avenue
    Some guys were shootin pool
    And I heard the sound
    Of a cappella groups, yeah
    Singing late in the evening
    And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah

    Then I learned to play some lead guitar
    I was underage In this funky bar
    And I stepped outside to smoke
    myself a "J"
    And when I came back to the room
    Everybody just seemed to move
    And I turned my amp up loud and I began
    to play
    And it was late in the evening
    And I blew that room away
    The first thing I remember
    When you came into my life
    I said I'm gonna get that girl
    No matter what I do
    Well I guess I'd been in love before
    And once or twice I been on the floor
    But I never loved no one
    The way that I loved you
    And it was late in the evening
    And all the music seeping through

    大失敗と言われた1980年の"One Trick Pony"はそれでもチャートで12位でしたが、1983年の"Hearts And Bones"は35位(個人的にはソロの最高傑作と思うんですけど)、1981年のS&G再結成コンサート"The Concert in Central Park"の6位にはるかに劣る成績・・・・ポール・サイモンは「過去の人」と見做されつつありました。そんな中で発表されたのがこの「グレイスランド」でした。

    ロックはいつだって他のジャンルの音楽と異種交配しながら成長してきましたが、ポール・サイモン個人も「明日に架ける橋」のころからずっと民族音楽を取り込む先進的な試みを続けてきました。ただ、アルバムを通して一つのジャンルに取り組むという大胆なアプローチはこの「グレイスランド」が初めてでした。

    結果として産まれたこの音楽の美しく豊かなことと言ったら!
    このアルバム以降「エスニック音楽」とか「民族音楽」という言葉はめっきり減り「ワールド・ミュージック」と呼ばれるようになりました。

    キャリアの最低迷期であったこと、アフリカ音楽との融合を目指すという前例のない音楽で理解されていなかったことからでしょう。この作品のプロモ盤はプレス数が本当に少なく、激レアです。もちろん、この時期のワーナー作品ですから白ラベル盤はありません。

    (Side 2) PRO-A-2-2652-SH1 LPVERSION B-26472 SH1 △15424-× 1-1

    "The Boy in the Bubble" is a song by the American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the third single from his seventh studio album, Graceland (1986), released on Warner Bros. Records. Written by Simon and Forere Motloheloa (an accordionist from Lesotho), its lyrics explore starvation and terrorism, juxtaposed with wit and optimism.

    The single released in September 1987 performed well on charts worldwide. In the United States, it was mainly successful on the Album Rock Tracks chart, where it peaked at No. 15. Outside the U.S., "The Boy in the Bubble" was a top 20 hit in the Netherlands, and top 30 in the United Kingdom and Belgium.

    同じWikiの中で、シングルのリリース日が異なっています。どっちが正しいのか知りませんが、まあ、もう30年前のレコですから、どうでもいいですね。

    It was a slow day
    And the sun was beating
    On the soldiers by the side of the road
    There was a bright light
    A shattering of shop windows
    The bomb in the baby carriage
    Was wired to the radio

    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    This is the long distance call
    The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
    The way we look to us all

    The way we look to a distant constellation
    That's dying in a corner of the sky
    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    And don't cry, baby, don't cry
    Don't cry

    It was a dry wind
    And it swept across the desert
    And it curled into the circle of birth
    And the dead sand
    Falling on the children
    The mothers and the fathers
    And the automatic earth

    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    This is the long distance call
    The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
    The way we look to us all, oh yeah

    The way we look to a distant constellation
    That's dying in a corner of the sky
    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    And don't cry baby, don't cry
    Don't cry

    It's a turn-around jump shot
    It's everybody jump start
    It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
    Medicine is magical and magical is art
    Think of the boy in the bubble
    And the baby with the baboon heart

    And I believe
    These are the days of lasers in the jungle
    Lasers in the jungle somewhere
    Staccato signals of constant information
    A loose affiliation of millionaires
    And billionaires and baby

    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    This is the long distance call
    The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
    The way we look to us all, oh yeah

    The way we look to a distant constellation
    That's dying in a corner of the sky
    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    And don't cry baby, don't cry
    Don't cry, don't cry

    Art Garfunkel / Breakaway (Columbia, PC 33700) <October 14, 1975> MAT ; 1H / 1F

    とにかく有名どころが大挙してサポートメンバーとして参加した、ガーファンクルの代表作。Paul Simonとのデュエットのほか、Graham Nash、David Crosby、Andrew Goldなんかもコーラスで参加しています。個人的には「明日に架ける橋」でピアノを弾いたLarry Knechtelが興味深いです(上品なピアノ弾きますね!!)。ほかSteve Cropperr、Nicky Hopkins、Bruce Johnston、Larry Knechtels、Klaus Voormann、Jim Keltner、Jim Gordonなどが参加。

    "I Only Have Eyes For You"

    My love must be a kind of blind love
    I can't see anyone but you

    Are the stars out tonight?
    I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
    I only have eyes for you, dear

    The moon may be high
    But I can't see a thing in the sky
    'Cause I only have eyes for you

    I don't know if we're in a garden
    Or on a crowded avenue

    You are here, so am I
    Maybe millions of people go by
    But they all disappear from view
    And I only have eyes for you

    The moon may be high
    But I can't see a thing in the sky
    'Cause I only have eyes for you

    You are here, so am I
    Maybe millions of people go by
    But they all disappear from view

    I don't know if we're in a garden
    Or on a crowded avenue

    You are here, so am I
    Maybe millions of people go by
    But they all disappear from view
    And I only have eyes for you

    この曲は1934年の曲だそうです。ポール・サイモンやアート・ガーファンクルはドゥーワップが好きみたいですから、フラミンゴスを聴いて覚えたんだと思ってます。この演奏もすごく好き。↓

    "Break Away"

    I watch the distant lights on the runway
    Disappear into the evening sky
    Oh you know I'm with you on your journey
    Never could say goodbye

    It's not the sun you're trying to find
    Something else is on your mind
    You need a little space and time
    To break away
    It's not the place you're going to
    It's just a phase you're going through
    Though I won't stop you I don't want you to

    Break awa-a-a-a-ay
    Fly across your ocean
    Break awa-a-a-a-ay
    Time has come for you
    Break awa-a-a-a-ay
    Fly across your ocean
    Break awa-a-a-a-ay
    Time has come

    For you to awaken in another country

    Greet the morning under foreign skies
    Leaving me to face another Monday
    It's not easy to get by

    It's not the sun you're trying to find
    Something else is on your mind
    You need a little space and time
    To break away
    It's not the place you're going to
    It's just a phase you're going through
    Though I won't stop you I don't want you to

    Break awa-a-a-a-ay
    Fly across your ocean
    Break awa-(breakaway)-a-ay
    Time has come for you
    Break awa-(breakaway)-a-ay
    Fly across your ocean
    Break awa-(breakaway)-a-ay
    Time has come for you

    (SIDE 1) PAL35780-1C
    (SIDE 2) PBL35780-1C

    "Fate for Breakfast" is the fourth solo studio album by Art Garfunkel released in March 1979 on Columbia Records. It was his first album to miss the U.S. Billboard Top 40 and his first album containing no U.S. Top 40 singles. However, the European release of the album does include a different version of the song "Bright Eyes", which was featured in the film version of the novel Watership Down, and reached the number-one spot in the United Kingdom, and became the biggest selling single of 1979 there. Likewise, the album itself garnered international success, reaching the top-ten in some European countries. The album was issued in five different sleeves, each with a different shot of Art Garfunkel at the breakfast table.

    ガーファンクルの4作目のソロ・アルバム。ジャケのデザインは5種類あるそうです。
    白ラベルのプロモ盤でも、少なくとも3種類のジャケを確認しました。

    "Since I Don't Have You"

    I don't have plans and schemes and I don't have hopes and dreams.
    I don't have anything since I don't have you.
    I don't have fond desires and I don't have happy hours.
    I don't have anything since I don't have you.

    I don't have happiness and I guess I never will ever again.
    When you walked out on me, in walked on misery and he's been here since then.

    I don't have love to share and I don't have one who cares.
    I don't have anything since I don't have you.
    I don't have love to share and I don't have one who cares.
    I don't have anything since I don't have you, you, you, you

    1958年の名曲。ガンズも"The Spaghetti Incident?"でカヴァーしてました。
