Old Album, New Favorite

I've been really enjoying Paul Simon's "Graceland." The music is unusual, catchy, a bit African, and summery. The lyrics: sweet, relatable, layered.

"You Can Call Me Al" -- takes me back to PHS football games.
"Graceland" -- a song of redemption, a greater peace.
"Under African Skies" -- a summer bbq song.
"Gumboots" -- the chorus is a kernel of truth for every love story.
"Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes" -- another archetypal love story.
"Homeless" -- relaxing.

All of the others are also good. And I really like this album.
