    You Can Call Me Al is one of Dan Reynolds' favorite songs!

    🎵A man walks down the street
    🎵He says why am I soft in the middle now
    🎵Why am I soft in the middle?
    🎵The rest of my life is so hard!

    🎵Bonedigger, Bonedigger
    🎵Dogs in the moonlight
    🎵Far away, my well lit door
    🎵Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly
    🎵Get these mutts away from me
    🎵You know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore

    🎵I can call you Betty
    🎵And Betty when you call me

    Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al - YouTube


    It is interesting that this song is one of Dan's favorites because it was released on September 5, 1986

    Dan admires Paul Simon because he is also a singer/songwriter. I must admit that it is a catchy tune and one of my favorites as well. When I ever so briefly met Dan Reynolds at a concert meet and greet, I took him a CD of the making of Graceland by Paul Simon. It is now a collector's item. I had the original copy because I am old!
    The video is also funny because Paul is upstaged by actor Chevy Chase who lip synchs the song and won't let Paul get a word in edgewise! It is also comical when Paul Simon attempts to fit his musical instruments through a small door.
    In the Shots video, a small part of the actor eating the Apple was given to a very lucky Firebreather!

    I think Imagine Dragons should do a cover of You Can Call Me Al and re-create the video with Paul Simon and cast firebreathers to lip synch the song! I would die laughing at Platzman attempting to get that enormous drum of theirs through a small door!

    I love that song, now I think I'll be singing it in my head all day long!

    Some of the older Imagine Dragons music has a very "you can call me Al" feel to it, especially the way certain songs like for example, I need a minute, all eyes, living musical, Tokyo, have these verses where the lyrics are such a mouthful of words and rhyme, not in a rap style but more like the style of this song.

    I also always loved that video. I grew up loving Chevy Chase, he and Goldie were my favorite pair. Foul Play and Seems Like Old Times were two of my favorite movies as a young girl. I'm sure I've seen them 100 times over!

    As for Paul Simon, this is I think my favorite song of his.

    Yes! I am glad that we both have a favorite song in common with Dan Reynolds. I agree about the influence on his work.
    Lyrically, they are complex!
    Wouldn't you love to hear Imagine Dragons sing this song?
