Song of the Day: 'Crying in My Sleep' by Art Garfunkel

Make fun of my Art Garfunkel fixation all you want, but no one interprets a Jimmy Webb song better than Paul Simon's other half -- and no one spins a more clever web than Jimmy:
Went out to loosen up the car 
Somehow I wound up at the Rainbow Bar 
I had a scotch-and-soda on the run 
But I didn’t get too far ... 
I ran down some friends I used to know 
I dragged them out to see the show 
I ran myself a bath and I tried to read your book 
But you know baby, this time it just didn’t seem worth all the time it took

Tsk, tsk, using that photo for the Rainbow that Webb referenced is just a no-no.
