One of the Internet’s delights is the chance of finding, and sharing, art. I’ve always loved the elegiac tone of Paul Simon ‘s song. René and Georgette Magritte with their dog after the War. It sets the romance of 1950s New York in a frame of domestic intimacy undercut by hints at the surreal oddity of our lives that we sometimes catch from the corner of an attentive eye. This video finds images that fit Simon’s text as if the two had been imagined together. So here it is, just because I liked it.
