Don't know what a kodachrome is, but sounds great. NOICE SONG
most kids use I-phone cameras these days, same deal.
A totally, totally outdated song because kids don't know what Kodakchrome is. If you do, it's still just as brilliant as when he wrote it: there's no beauty in the world quite as beautiful as one's own nostalgia.

I really like this song, I'm sorry but I can't help but think about the Cone Heads Movie though, product of my generation I guess.

Did Kodak pay Simon to make this song?
And thanks for that GAF tour, by the way, Mr. Cabibbo. And thanks for running Yearbook, Mr. St. Clair.
Yes. Massive factory with floors and floors of chemical baths just to develop the ingenious fine grain film-toured GAF facility in HS when I was yearbook photographer , had BW darkroom, played this song too loud, and wondered if in first version it was not "Nichrome" camera, perhaps for copyright reasons, or my ears, or I knew more than Paul?
I too was shock to hear crap on the radio.
Good one
Kodachrom gone, now its megapixals. Still a great song.
Emilys fist pumping:D uhhhh

I've always loved this song. It never gets old.
Mama don't take my Paul Simon.
Paul Simon is sooo cool. I love him.;)
This songs makes me smile.
When I first heard this song, I was shocked to hear the word "crap" on the radio. Oh, for the good old days!

In the Concert in Central Park version, he says "everything looks BETTER in Black and White" instead of worse. Unfortunatel y that was the first version I ever heard of this song, so I will always remember "better". Of course, it was also paired with "Maybelline" , so whatever.

like a year or two ago i found out about paul simon and have loved him ever since! his songs kick butt!
i \know what kodachrome is, completely understand the song meaning, literaly and metaphorical y . . . but i dont under stand what indianxcmean s about his teacher..."M y history teacher had a sign in his room that had Kodachrome with a a red line through it in his room. I had him for 3 years and it wasn't until the end of my senior year that I understood it.

I miss Mr. Donald Harms...
This is a fun upbeat diddy! Love that line, "They never match my sweet imagination. " So true!
meanwhile, kodachrome bites the dust
easy to listen, up-beat
