Me and Julio: "lighten up!"

Such a cool song about the furore that erupts when the singer of the song gets caught with his Hispanic mate, presumably smoking dope. It's cheeky, funny and energetic. The mum runs down to the cop shop in her pajamas, dad goes ape shit, it becomes a national scandal that ends up on the cover of a hard hitting news mag.

I like the one above - nice to see and hear Garfunkel in there but the original studio version - below - is still fresh and fun.

This song - as with so many others of S&G - reflects the 1960s, both in attitude and in style. In this case the message was "the oldies should lighten up" and the fun is infectious.
