You've started back doing those things you used to do As I was motorvatin' over the hill I saw Maybellene in a Coup de Ville A Cadillac rollin' on the open road But nothing will outrace my V8 Ford The Cadillac doin' 'bout ninety-five Bumper to bumper and side by side Maybellene, why can't you be true? You've started back doing those things you used to do The heat cooled down, the motor cooled down That's when I heard that highway sound The Cadillac sittin' like a ton of lead Hundred and ten half a mile ahead The Cadillac lookin' like it's standin' still And I caught Maybellene at the top of the hill Maybellene, why can't you be true?

I hope everyone can hear us. I hope that the sound is good. I hope we are blasting Central Park West and Fifth avenue pretty much away. It was Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park in September at a free benefit concert in Central ParkNew York City Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Parkwhere the pair performed in front of more thanpeople.
Proceeds went toward the redevelopment and maintenance of the park, which had deteriorated due to lack of municipal funding. The concert and album marked the start of a short-lived reunion for Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Television channel HBO agreed to carry the concert, and worked with Delsener to decide on Simon and Garfunkel as the appropriate act for this event. Besides hit songs from their years as a duo, their set-list included material from their solo careers, and covers.
The show consisted of 21 songs, though two were not used in the live album. Among the songs performed were the classics " The Sound of Silence ", " Mrs.
Robinson ", and " The Boxer "; the event concluded with a reprise of Simon's song, " Late in the Evening ". Ongoing personal tensions between the duo led them to decide against a permanent reunion, despite the success of the concert and a subsequent world tour. The album and a film were released the year after the concert. Simon and Garfunkel's performance was praised by music critics and the album was commercially successful; it peaked at number six on the Billboard album Cow Cow Boogie - The Mills Brothers - Swingin In The Sixties and was certified double Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park by the Recording Industry Association of America RIAA.
New York City's Central Parkan oasis that functions as the city's "green lung", was in Épocas Felices - Lucha Reyes - Lucha Por Siempre.
Lucha state of deterioration in the mids. The nonprofit Central Park Conservancy was founded inand began a successful campaign to raise renovation funds. In the early s, Parks Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park Gordon Davisresponsible for New York City's green areas, and Ron Delsener, one of the city's most influential concert promoters, developed the idea of helping Central Park financially with a free open-air concert, under the legal guidance of Bob Donnelly.
The city would use profits from merchandising, television, and video rights to renovate the park. Earlier park performances by Elton John and James Taylor showed that this concept could be a success. They had grown apart artistically and did not get along well with each other. In the following eleven years, both continued musical careers as solo artists, and worked together only sporadically on single projects. Delsener presented the plan to Paul Simon in the summer of Simon was enthusiastic about the idea, but questioned whether it could be financially successful, especially given the poor audience attendance of his Paisley Park - Prince And The Revolution - Around The World In A Day project, the autobiographical movie One-Trick Pony.
Simon's confidence had declined and he had sought treatment for depression. Garfunkel was excited about the idea, and immediately returned to the US.
From the promoter's viewpoint, Simon and Garfunkel were ideal choices. Both gained inspiration from the cityscape and the cultural variety of New York, and spoke of these influences in their songs.
Planning and rehearsals for the concert took about three weeks in a Manhattan theater. Paul Simon later said: "Well, the rehearsals were just miserable. Artie and I fought all the time. He used the live show as an opportunity to test one of his new songs in front of an audience. The two differed on the presentation of the concert. Garfunkel wanted to recreate the duo's mids live performances, using only their voices backed by Simon's acoustic guitar.
Simon felt that this was impossible, as an injury had rendered him incapable of playing guitar for the full length of a concert, and his newer material was typically arranged for larger ensembles that often included horns and amplified instruments such as electric piano and electric guitar. Garfunkel initially agreed to hire a second guitarist, but later Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park the idea. A group of eleven musicians was assembled for the concert,   most of whom were experienced studio musicians and had played on albums involving Simon or Garfunkel and these included Billy Joel 's guitarist David Brown guitarMuscle Shoals guitarist Pete Carr guitarAnthony Jackson bass Like A Knife In The Back - Biohazard / Twisted Sister / Motorhead* / Nightwish - Легенды ЗарубежногоRob Mounsey synthesizerJohn Eckert trumpetJohn Gatchell trumpetDave Tofani saxophoneGerry Niewood saxophoneSteve Gadd and Grady Tate drums, percussionand Richard Tee piano.
The musical arrangements for the concert were written by Paul Simon and David Matthews. Some songs differed significantly from their original versions; for example, " Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard " featured more prominent Latin elements and included a salsa breakwhile the folk rock " Kodachrome " was set as a harder rock song and played together with the Chuck Berry classic " Maybellene " as a medley.
The military rhythm of " 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover " was replaced with a Latin arrangement that included brass. Garfunkel had difficulties in the rehearsals.
Both men easily recalled their songs from the s, but Garfunkel had to learn the harmonies and arrangements for Simon's solo songs, as modified for the reunion concert. Despite the need to adapt to Simon and his style, Garfunkel enjoyed some of the songs, and was glad to perform a duet version of Simon's " American Tune ".
The first spectators, many carrying chairs or picnic blankets, arrived at daybreak to secure a good spot.
The stage backdrop depicted an urban rooftop with water tank and air outlet, symbolic of New York's skyline. At twilight, the backing band went onstage, followed by New York's mayor, Ed Kochwho announced, "Ladies and gentlemen, Simon and Garfunkel! Robinson ". After the second song, " Homeward Bound ", Simon delivered a short speech which began, "Well, it's great to do a neighborhood concert. The audience booed at the mention of Koch but applauded as Simon continued by tongue-in-cheek thanking "the guys who are selling loose joints [for] giving the city half of their income tonight".
Each performer sang three songs alone, including one new song apiece. The incident provoked associations to the song's lyrics, in which Simon speaks as a first-person narrator concerning the deaths of Johnny AceJohn F. Kennedy and John Lennon. Lennon's murder by an obsessed fan had taken place less than a year previously, not Camaleon - In Vitro (15) - In Vitro from the concert site.
In May as a guest on Late Night with David Lettermanhe explained that while it is not unusual for fans, for example, to jump onto the stage with flowers, this action was new to him, but also felt that Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park man simply appeared intoxicated. His greater concern was that the song's premiere was ruined. Lyrics referring to the New York area produced audience applause, such as Garfunkel's ode to his home city, "A Heart Kodachrome / Maybelline - Simon & Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park New York", which describes from a New Yorker's point of view the first glimpse of the city when returning there by air: .
New York, lookin' down on Central Park, where they say you should not wander after dark . Still, the new album has magic to spare, some of it rough. Though labored over in the studio after the event, the tracks are far from percent polished. A lilting, surreal memory song. They stayed around the city, continuing to assimilate its cultural resources, recycle them and give them back. The sense of a lifelong romance with New York permeates the record.
