"I don't think there were any recordings of it, but we had messed around with it." How terribly inconvenient, I might believe Los Lobos wrote the melody, but even that they can't prove. When they say Paul Simon stole the song from them...no way. Those lyrics are vintage Paul Simon. They are lucky he doesn't sue them.

This story sounds like a bunch of BS. If he had ANY real proof, he would have sued..Sorry, but Paul Simon's bio speaks for itself. Even after S&G broke up, his solo LP's were huge hits, "Kodachrome", "Still Crazy After All these Years" He doesn't need to steal songs from anybody!
Go look him up, Lifetime Achievement Award, 13 Grammys, one of Time Magazines,"100 People Who Shaped the World"
This guy Berlin is just JEALOUS & is a total JERK.Don't believe one word of this crap!

Simon's accomplishmenmts SO outstrip anything Los Lobos has ever done. Where's all the great stuff from you guys since? That's what I thought.

Oh, the humanity

Clearly none of you know any musicians or are musicians if you have a problem with this story. I'm in NYC & friends with more than a few studio musicians, hired guns. You have zero idea how many tunes/riffs/lyrics are stolen to push the record company's "new , hot concept". My friend worked on Cyndi Lauper's "She's So Unusual" sessions and Lauper was nothing more than a pawn of a studio producer. Cyndi was doing this 50's retro thing that she thought would be big and the producer had to push her to sing the songs that made her rich and world famous. Meanwhile, the studio musicians came up with all the pieces of music that we all know (love or hate it), but just got paid for the session. No credit or royalty checks, not even an offer to join her on tour. Once the album was a hit, Lauper fired EVERYONE for her next album and SURPRISE, she achieved that sort of fame again. Sheryl Crow, Gin Blossoms, we could be here all day. Paul Simon is a smug jerk with talent, but no ethics or soul.

I enjoy getting high on cannabinoids and then composing music. It's fun.
