Track of the Week: Can't Run But by Paul Simon

I recently got a hold of the entire Paul Simon discography. I've always liked Paul Simon, but have avoided his albums for some reason. Anyways, one of his most interesting albums is "The Rhythm of the Saints". Released after "Graceland", "Saints" retains some of the formers south African influences and adds a healthy dab of Brazilian music.

"Can't Run But" is rhythmically charged, and it's melodies and chords create an eerie back drop for Simons lyrics, concerning Chernobyl.
