The Cody Blog: 59th Street Bridge Song

59th Street Bridge Song

One of my all-time favorite songs is Simon & Garfunkel's 59th Street Bridge Song. It always makes me happy, as most of their songs do. In fact that only S&G songs I've ever heard that I didn't like is "Sound of Silence" and "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". Those two songs were my brother's favorites as a little kid and he used to listen to them on the record player a lot. Prob was, sometimes he'd be sitting on top me after pinning me down as he listened to those songs. Or whatever. LOL

Anyway, I love the lyrics from the "Feeling Groovy" song too. And today, as I'm in the midst of another week like the last one, in which I've been working and writing and playing tennis and having dinners and am just pedal to the metal again getting almost no sleep but am pushing and pushing and pushing, I keep hearing the line:

"Slow down, you move to fast. You got to make the morning last."

My best friend from childhood, Robert Sayner, got in town today, and I'm sure we'll be out late tonight. As he put, "Bring out the Scorpions, Cody, and rock this town like a hurricane" (which, probably isn't the most appropriate phraseology right now). Oh, man. At least the guy I was supposed to play tennis against this morning at 6:30am canceled on me so I have only a group tennis match today rather than a two-a-day.

But as much as I love leaving everything I've got out on the field --- I would like a day or two of "slowing things down".

As yet another aside, my agent at CAA is also S&G's agent and, man did he hook me up with some tickets for their show a couple years ago. A girl that I was dating at the time and I had the owners box at the Meadowlands to ourselves for the show. It was a great time and quite romantic, I might add. Of course, the next day she got rather serious about getting serious and the relationship ended. Blame S&G!

That's too funny. My friend gave me a CD with " feeling groovy" for my birthday this past year because she says i do too much & i should follow the words to the song. i think we all should sometime. anywho Keep up the great work on the blog. i must say this is my favorite thus far:
Lonely's So Lovely (The Cody Show)
Lyrics --
Flying solo(w) and I cannot see,
One part-ner-vous play purportedly.
Crying cholo, cannot feel the pain,
Won part nurse, one part seals the game.

Love is too lonely to dance.
Lonely’s so lovely so dance.

Crashing-down-blanket, covering me,
Can’t, for giving me, smothering me,
Lashing out, by walking away,
Can’t, for getting caught, just the same,

Love is too lonely to dance.
Love is so lonely to death.
Lonely’s so lovely, so dance.

Have i heard this one? i don't recall.

A girl . . . or a woman, Cody?

The last time I dated a boy was, let's see . . . 15 years ago and counting.

hi cody
just wanted to say hi . I read your blog today early and then it just disappeared. It was about those spam porno people again,?? also I don't understand those people who put there site in your blog espically the one about depression , do they think you are depressed because you write music? I guess i just don't get it. I have a request, is there anyway you can add spell check to your blog? or when you add your made up diseases, if you add dyslexic you will need to add spell check. Keep up the good work we are watching the fire down south where we have a lot of friends it dosn't look good, but tomorrow is always a new day. To tomorrow, have a nice evening cody
