This CD is a delightful surprise from Paul Simon. My favorite track is Father and Daughter. This is a beautiful track about how much a father can love his daughter so much, he would do anything to protect her. How Can You Live In the Northeast is a song about living with a sense of pride and dignity no matter what your religious background is. This song makes interesting references to the threats of floods around the country too. Beautiful is another one of my favorite songs on here. This is a song about it feels to adopt a baby from a foreign country and all the happiness a child can bring to your life. Wartime Prayers is another highlight on this CD. This song is about having faith and hope in a time of war and despair. The lyrics of this song are very moving.
Another Galaxy is a lovely song about what it feels like to leave home and explore the world on your own. Outrageous is a great song about all the social injustices and blessings in the world today. Everything About It Is A Love Song is a standout track about the beauty of the things in nature like the trees, birds, and the wind. I love the beautiful imagery Paul Simon creates for the listener on this track. That's Me is a fun song about a person moving through different stages in life trying to find their own identity. I liked the beat of the track Sure Don't Feel Like Love. This is a good song about how some people are guided by their conscience when making decisions. I really enjoyed listening to Surprise. I think Paul Simon continues to write songs that people can relate to.
