You Can Call Me Al" is a song by the American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the lead single from his seventh studio album, Graceland (1986), released on Warner Bros. Written by Simon, its lyrics follow an individual seemingly experiencing a midlife crisis. Its lyrics were partially inspired by Simon's trip to South Africa and experience with its culture. Released in September 1986, "You Can Call Me Al" became one of Simon's biggest solo hits, reaching the top five in seven countries.
Ease my mind Reasons for me to find you Peace of mind What can I do To get me to you? I had your number quite some time ago Back when we were young But I had to grow.
Graceland's lead single didn't fare as well: "You Can Call Me Al" – which partly was inspired by an incident at a party where a guest mistakenly referred to Simon by that name – stalled at No. 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 that September and had fallen off the chart by the time that Graceland cracked the Billboard 200 top 10. But, thanks to a Grammy win, the album and single found second life. At the Feb. 24, 1987 ceremony, Graceland was named album of the year and shot back into the Billboard 200 top 10, where it stayed for three months and hit a new high: No. 3. Meanwhile,.
Even though the Graceland album did very well, this song was a slow starter. The single did well in the UK, where it made in September 1986, but in America, it stalled at in October. After the album and video gained momentum, the song was reissued with more promotion in March 1987, and this time it went to in the US. It was Simon's last Top 40 hit in America. Al Gore used this while he was running for Vice President in 1992. Simon has played at various Democratic fund raisers. I got my friend a copy of the album as well, out of gratitude. Paul STILL rocks; his latest, "Surprise" is wonderful. Veronica from Albany, OrI love this song.
