"I Am A Rock"

OK, more 60's: Paul Simon wrote and recorded this classic while sick in London in early '65 as past of "The Paul Simon Songbook". Following the success of the electric version of "Sound Of Silence", he re-recorded with Art Garfunkel as folk-rock on 12/14/65 for their 2nd studio album. Peaked at #3. About a man who's been deeply hurt and becomes a recluse, locking himself from everything and everyone.

Yesterday's answer: "Free Falling" by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. There are those who believe that Petty and Dylan are one same person. Hmmm...we'll never know. Think about it - nobody has ever seen them together, one is as good-looking as the other, pretty well the same voice, they alternate recordings - they ARE one and the same person (just like Michael an LaToya!)!
