Song of the Week: “The Werewolf” by Paul Simon


Paul Simon certainly does not need a small-time blogger to get publicity, but I’m going to share his wildly inventive and unique new song “The Werewolf” anyway. Even better, check out the All Songs Considered podcast where Paul Simon breaks down the song’s creation with Bob Boilen. 

And don’t these lyrics speak to our time!

Ignorance and arrogance, a national debate
Put the fight in Vegas, that’s a billion dollar gate

Revenues, pay per views, it should be pretty healthy
The usual productions, and it all goes to the wealthy
