"A Hazy Shade Of Winter"

OK, more 60's: This '66 Paul Simon composition appeared in "Bookends" in '68. It speaks of looking for something or someone ideal as time runs out and seasons pass by. Peaked at #13 on Billboard. The Bangles' hard-rock cover for the film "Less than Zero" hit #2 on the charts. Most of the bridge was removed in their version. Les Fradkin did a wonderful Rickenbacker-12 rendition on his '06 "Jangleholic" album.

Yesterday's answer: "It Won't Be Long". One of my favorite early Beatles tunes. Always grateful to George for teaching us how to use 6th and 9th chords! Lily Pappas from Iowa City recently released a beautiful acoustic version backed by my good friend Harry Hoffman on acoustic guitar.
