Simon & Garfunkel, Bookends (CBS, 1968)

Simon Garfunkel

Cuz Queens is the county, Jamaica is the place!

J/K it’s Flushing and Forest Hills, respectively, for Simon and Garfunkel. Regardless, though: to my peoples throughout Queens, God bless your life.



Ramones (Sire, 1976)


Usually if I wanna hear some badass follically-blessed Jewish kids from Queens singing pretty melodies I’ll put on my beloved Shangri-Las and crawl deep inside Shadow Morton’s echo chamber.

Sometimes I feel like letting in a couple Irish kids, though, and that’s when I go to the Ramones. They continue to have me stuck off the realness after all these years.
