Interesting fact, Chevy Chase actually sings this song!
Whenever I saw one of those film clip playing jukeboxes I had to play this song. God damn I sound old
This song is definitely a classic, and arguably rock (pop rock if anything), but "classic rock" it is not.
That being said, still one of the greatest songs I've ever heard. Impossible to not move your body when it comes on. Long live Paul Simon.
Love this song. Makes me think of my Dad and road trips
It's striking how much this video makes me think of Hotline Bling. From the color palette to the stilted dancing, even the wardrobe a little.
> Paul Frederic Simon (born October 13, 1941 in Newark, New Jersey) is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He first gained world-wide recognition as the writing talent behind the popular American folk-rock duo Simon & Garfunkel formed with fellow musician Art Garfunkel. When Simon & Garfunkel split in 1970, Simon quickly began his solo career with the release of the self-titled album, Paul Simon. This was followed by There Goes Rhymin' Simon and Still Crazy After All These Years, both of which featured chart-topping hits such as Loves Me Like A Rock and Kodachrome. In 1986 Simon released the immensely popular Graceland, which featured the groundbreaking use of African rhythms and performers Ladysmith Black Mambazo. In 1990, he followed up Graceland with the successor album The Rhythm of the Saints which featured Brazilian and Cajun musical themes. These albums helped to popularize world music as a genre.
> He co-wrote the unsuccessful, but critically-acclaimed musical The Capeman with Nobel-winning poet Derek Walcott in 1997.
> Paul Simon still tours occasionally, both as a solo artist and with his old musical partner Art Garfunkel. He is married to Edie Brickell.
> In 1994 Paul Simon held 14 sold out concerts in Nantes (France) with International professional fusion players: Nino Manore (Italy), Francis Mc Gowan (UK), Gissele Masarde (France), Nikša Sviličić (Croatia), and others. Read more on Last.fm.

I feel like maybe around this time is when American men just gave up on dressing well. The time period where worn out jeans with disheveled sports coats and a t shirt combo became trendy seems to have been when men were like, yanno, fuck sports coats forever, lets just do the jeans and t shirt from now on. Which is a shame, because a man in a suit is to a lot of women's eyes the way lingerie is to a lot of men's eyes. There'd be a lot more sex going on if men started dressing well again.
Swear to god thought this was the dudes from dumb and dumber.
