after High School - it's a wonder I can think at all

Ah, the spring of 1973! There Goes should have won the grammy for that year, but Stevie Wonder got in the way.

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A totally, totally outdated song because kids don't know what Kodakchrome is.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?

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.
