"The Dangling Conversation"

OK, more 60's: This '66 Paul Simon composition from "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme" was THE 1st Simon & Garfunkel single release NOT to become a hit (#25). Simon attributed this to its "heaviness". Speaks of failed communication between two lovers - frozen and lifeless, growing apart. The slow disintegration of a relationship - as far apart as the poets each of them fancy.

Yesterday's answer: "Do You Want To Know A Secret?" by The Beatles. Great tune! The B-side is another one of those many understated Beatles masterpieces. Reminds me of growing up in P.R. and listening to both sides on the table jukebox while eating pizza at Mastro's Pizza Palace.
