Trivia

Wist je dat? Dit nummer is afkomstig uit de film One-Trick Pony met Paul Simon in de hoofdrol. In die film speelt Simon de 34-jarige zanger Jonah Levin wiens carrière na een grote hit in 1968 in een dal is geraakt. Twaalf jaar later moet er een nieuw album gemaakt worden, maar Jonah Levin loopt hierbij aan tegen meningsverschillen met de producer. Daarnaast wil hij de relatie met zijn ex-vrouw en zoontje verbeteren. Op 25 februari 1981 was Paul Simon de presentator van de uitreiking van de Grammy Awards en speelde hij samen met zijn band uit de film het nummer "Late In The Evening". Het nummer was genomineerd voor een Grammy voor Best Pop Vocal Performance bij de mannen, maar moest het afleggen tegen "This Is It" van Kenny Loggins.

Songtekst

First thing I remember
I was lying in my bed
Couldn't have been no more than one or two
And I remember there was a radio
Coming from the room next door
And my mother laughed the way some ladies do
Well, it's late in the evening
And the music's seeping through

The next thing I remember
I am walking down the street
I'm feeling all right, I'm with my boys, I'm with my troops, yeah
And down along the avenue
Some guys are shootin' pool
And I heard the sound of acapella grooves, yeah
Singin' late in the evening
And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah

Then I learned to play some lead guitar
I was underage in this funky bar
And I stepped outside and smoked myself a J
And when I come back to the room
Everybody just seemed to move
And I turned my amp up loud and I began to play
And it was late in the evening
And I blew that room away

First thing I remember
When you came into my life
I said: I'm gonna get that girl, no matter what I do
Well, I guess I've been in love before
Once or twice I've been on the floor
But I never loved no one the way that I love you
And it was late in the evening
And all the music seeping through
