At seventeen, I was a sort of hippie/folkie wannabe. A very brief and disastrous episode trying to learn the guitar made me realise I was never going to be the next Joan Baez, but music still played a hugely important part in my life courtesy of my transistor radio. At seventeen, amongst many others, I would have been listening to Simon and Garfunkel. "American Tune" is my favourite Paul Simon song. It appeared initially as the third single release from his third studio album "There Goes Rhymin' Simon" (1973) and reappeared on the "Concert in Central Park" album of 1982. Neither of these dates corresponds to the time I was seventeen, but the lyrics seem so very appropriate at the moment. I dedicate it to Americans everywhere, and, well ... to all of us, really!
