In 1972, Paul Simon scored his first #1 solo album with his self-titled release, from whence we get the top 5 hit, "Me & Julio Down by the Schoolyard". To this day, I still can't quite get the lyrics. Simon was, perhaps intentionally, vague about the circumstances behind the crime supposedly committed at the start of the song.
Fast forward 16 years, and Simon, in support of his greatest hits CD, "Negotiations & Love Songs", shoots a video for "Me & Julio", with guests Big Daddy Kane & Biz Markie laying down a beat before the song starts, and a trio of guest stars from the sports world: Yankee icon Mickey Mantle, NBA star Anthony "Spud" Webb, then with Atlanta, and former Oakland Raiders coach-turned broadcaster John Madden, who gets the Rodney Dangerfield treatment from a group of kids he calls into a huddle at the end of the clip. Well, what didja expect? He was a football coach, not a basketball coach. Big diff!
