“A Most Peculiar Man”


Description from Dill: Here are the Simon and Garfunkel lines that inspired this pick. I imagine he felt trapped, hence the cages surrounding him.

He was a most peculiar man.
He lived all alone within a house,
Within a room, within himself,
A most peculiar man.

He had no friends, he seldom spoke
And no one in turn ever spoke to him,
'Cause he wasn't friendly and he didn't care
And he wasn't like them.
Oh, no! he was a most peculiar man.

He died last Saturday.
He turned on the gas and he went to sleep
With the windows closed so he'd never wake up
To his silent world and his tiny room;

    Oh my… a most peculiar man and most peculiar lyrics. How depressing. But your pick expresses that 100%.

    WOW. I don’t remember that S & G song but it certainly fits their style. There are people like him all around us and we should all take note and coax them into the family of man. How sad. But you did a fantastic job interpreting the song. Bravo!
