Paul Simon Dedicates Acoustic ‘The Boxer’ To New York City

13

New York City native Paul Simon shared a video featuring a solo acoustic rendition of “The Boxer” that he dedicated to his hometown. “The Boxer” is the latest in a series of solo performance videos Simon has been rolling out during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Hello my friends, I’m sending my love and concern and I dedicate this song to my fellow New Yorkers,” Simon said at the start of the video. Paul originally recorded “The Boxer” with Art Garfunkel for Simon & Garfunkel’s 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. Watch the version Paul Simon shared on Monday below:

!function ($) {

window.jb_populate_livestreams_promo = function( $element ) {

let args = $element.attr( ‘data-args’ );

// set up the AJAX post data
var data = {
‘action’: ‘jb_get_livestreams_promo’,
‘args’: args,
};

// make the AJAX $_POSTcall
$.ajax({
type: “POST”,
url: ajaxurl,
data: data,
success: function( response ){

if ( true == response.success ){

$element.html(response.data).slideDown(420);

// trigger Cloudinary
var evt = window.document.createEvent(‘UIEvents’);
evt.initUIEvent(‘resize’, true, false, window, 0);
window.dispatchEvent(evt);

return;

}
},
error: function( response ){

alert( response.responseText );

}
});

};

$(function(){

$(‘#livestreams-promo-container’).each( function(){

jb_populate_livestreams_promo( $(this) );

});

});

}(window.jQuery);
