gut
*****
Schon sein Solo Hiterfolg # 11 in NL und leider auch sein letzte erfolg..... im Herbst 1990 war es auf platz # 12 !
****
▒ Prachtige soloplaat van "Paul Simon" uit oktober 1990 !!! Kwam helaas in 9 weken nooit verder dan een 12e plaats van de NL Top 40 van oktober / december 1990 !!! "The Obvious Child" behaald nog net 5 sterren !!! Super ☺!!!

@11-07-2013: ▒ Tegenwoordig net géén 5 sterren helaas, maar blijft dik OK ☺!!!

Typischer Song von ihm, aber auch sehr eingängig!
*****
Tolle Nummer mit den Erfindern des Samba-Reggae "Olodum", die im übrigen für die Beteiligung nichts erhalten haben.
****
sein bis heute letzter hit..
****
countrymäßig angehaucht, ganz was anderes wie "You Can Call Me Al"

...gut...
***
geht so
****
ist ok.
******
die Live Version ist klasse
*****
Kurzweilige Nummer, mit typische sanftem Paul-Simon-Touch. Dazu diese rumpelnden Percussions. Sehr nett. 4.5+

Gefällt mir gut. Der Samba-Rhythmus gibt dem Lied eine gute Energie, die ja manchmal seiner Stimme fehlt. Aber hier passt das schon...
****
-- gut --
*****
Dat drumwerk in deze plaat is gewoonweg geweldig!!
*****
très bien
***

10 weeks in the UK top 100.

Starke Single!
***
Niet geweldig maar nog wel goed voor 3 sterren.
****
rhythmisch schön zügig vorwärts marschierendes Stück, gesanglich verbesserungswürdig – 4*...
****
Pretty cool song.
****
zwischen 4* und 5*.
**
Zwakjes.
*****
Spannendes Arrangement. Der Mann lässt sich doch immer was Neues einfallen. Ob da Michael Jackson sich für mindestens eins seiner Lieder Anregungen geholt hat?
Melodisch sehr gefällig. Und nimmt gegen Ende richtig Tempo auf. Klasse. Ist mir glatt 5 Sterne wert, knappe, jedenfalls.
******
Meesterlijk goed.
***
erinnert rhythmisch an Cecilia, passt aber nicht wirklich zu seiner Musik, wie ich finde - der Part bei 3:15 tönt so, wie wenn er kein Ende finden könnte

naja ohne Art Garfunkel gefiel er mir sowieso nur noch halb so gut...
*****
coole Nummer

CDN: #28, 1990
USA: #92, 1990
*****
Ich trommle, du trommelst, er/sie trommelt....für mich
dann aber auch schon das musikalische HIghlight auf
seinem 1990-er Album!

Ganz knappe 5.

(4.75)
****
mooi nummer
****
Befriedigendes Lied. Dieses Stück habe ich noch auf einer alten Aufnahmekassette gefunden.
