Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Paul Simon - Father and Daughter (2002)

Promotional CD Single 

I was given this promo disc and thought I'd give it a (very) quick spin. I don't recall the song from the title, but here we go. The song was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song as well as the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, losing to Lose Yourself by Eminem at the Oscars and The Hands That Built America by U2 at the Globes.

It's pleasant enough and has a slight hook in the chorus, but I just listened to it five times through and couldn't hum any of it if you asked. Back on the shelf.

Peak on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart: #20

Track: only 1 track, 4:10 album version.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None. Never saw the movie or even an episode of The Wild Thornberrys that I can recall. Of course, that was 17 years ago so who knows?
