Song of the Day: 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes' by Paul Simon

Few songs make me as happy as this romantic ditty does. 

And she said honey take me dancing
But they ended up by sleeping
In a doorway
By the bodegas and the lights on
Upper broadway
Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes

I haven't had the guts to look at the upcoming setlist to see if it made the cut.

I remember first hearing that Paul Simon song with Ladysmith Black Mambazo on SNL. It was groundbreaking in that there really hadn't been something like that performance in network television history. Mesmerizing and just damned good. Ah memories... I even bought a CD of LBM and we still play songs from it.
