I knew, instinctively, that I'd have to avoid the song, to never play it intentionally and always let it be an incidental joy.

I recall thinking while standing alone watching Paul Simon, who went first, how seeing just one of these legendary songwriters was a big deal.

THURSDAY 4.7 Joshy Soul and The Cool At only 26, Joshy Soul (born Joshua David Strauther) sounds like he's been playing music since the heyday of Motown, Sun and Stax/Volt. Fittingly, he describes his debut release Vintage Dreamin' ( as "an album for old souls who miss the old ways of music and lifestyle."
