Uptown got it's hustlers, the Bowery got it's bums Forty-second Street got ...: A Sturday Soudtrack Post

I am not sure that I knew what this song was about when I was a little boy, but I liked the part about Superman's cape. And I would sing along, quite innocently, to a song about a man being sliced up in a fight.

The words to the song came back to me while I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago. Anslem Samuel was trying to spit, but he "spit into the wind". It was funny. Athanasia and I laughed and quoted part of the lyrics to him. Of course, Anselm asked over and over: "Who's Slim?"

Jim Croce died, at age 30, in a plane crash just a few hours after his last concert.
