Something So Right

Jan 26, 2014

I have chosen to do a cover of Paul Simon’s “Something So Right” from his 1973 album There Goes Rhymin’ Simon. This was Simon’s second solo release after the Simon and Garfunkel split up in 1971. An interesting note on Paul Simon is that after the duo split, Simon spent the summer of 1971 teaching songwriting classes at NYU. I find that fitting for several reasons, the main reason being represented in “Something So Right,” and the later release of the Rhymin’ Simon record that includes an early draft of the song, titled “Let Me Live in Your City.” I’ve been fascinated by these re-releases over the past few years, partly because they’re just great records, and partly because Simon’s release of “rough drafts” and “works in progress” have been a useful tool for my writing because I can see the editing work that goes into having a “final version” of a song. The hardest part about songwriting, for me, is knowing when something is finished. Sometimes there is no doubt about a finished product, and sometimes I find myself reworking the details, or making the decision that what I have, regardless of the work I put into it, is not communicating what I want it to, and I have to decide to throw it out.

I hope you enjoy my version of the song. I didn’t do anything new to the arrangement, mainly because the arrangement is such that I didn’t feel like I could add anything to it. The guitar part has been a pleasure to learn, and will no doubt be useful in my own writing. Cheers.
