PaulSimon-Front#20 – Paul Simon – “Mother and Child Reunion” – (1972)

This song, which hit #4 in the U.S., has a weird reggae element to it and Paul Simon has said that the title comes from a chicken and egg dish on a restaurant menu. Which is a little disturbing, but darkly hilarious. This was Simon’s second solo album and this is one of two amazing songs from it. That reggae bit, though, gives this one the edge.
