My DSP 3: Cecilia

Song: Cecilia

Artist: Simon & Garfunkel

Year: 1970

Favorite Lyric: Jubilation, she loves me again
I fall on the floor and I laughing

Significance: I’m a little stunned that Simon & Garfunkel hasn’t shown up in the DSP yet. Neither I nor Simon himself got to Paul Simon without Simon & Garfunkel. This song, which is really rollicking when put up against the rest of the S&G catalog, was always one of my favorites, an indicator of things to come.

Paul Simon did an interview with Stephen Colbert a year or two ago in which Colbert called out some of the lyrics to this song. It was hysterical and now I can’t disassociate those lyrics from Colbert. That’s a testament to Colbert, as outside comments generally can’t infiltrate such ingrained songs. Anyway, I’m getting off-task, but this is one of my favorites and probably one of yours too. Have a listen.
