Greetings From Forest Hills New York

And speaking of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer," I had forgotten how funny this is.

In any case, I posted that the other day at a political website I hang out at -- don't ask -- and one of the regulars mentioned that she had heard a very funny parody of it by Cleveland based comedian/singer Michael Spiro. So I thought I'd share.

And yes, it's a hoot, especially the line about how his sex life hasn't been the same since he sprained his wrist.

You can find out more info about Spiro -- including where to get some of his CDs -- over at his website HERE.

I always heard as "just a come-on from the wars of Seventh Avenue."

Stu Daye's version of The Boxer is one of my favorite covers of anything.
