    Darlene in Rhode Island: I started listening to the Morning Show on KEXP over 20 years ago (I think maybe I was 4? hahaha, Ahem). You helped me survive a verbally abusive boss, the birth of my child, family loss, love, ups and downs, a PANDEMIC. Is there nothing you can't do? My family and I love you. Thank you! We love YOU https://www.kexp.org/donate/

    In the Catholic church, Cecilia is the patron saint of musicians. In this context, the song can be interpreted as the singer asking for musical guidance, possibly to help writing a song. Paul Simon says he can't remember the specific inspiration when he was writing the song, but he knew Cecilia is the goddess of music. -- "...the strange sounding rhythm to this particular track was Paul and Art slapping their thighs, while Paul's brother Eddie thumped a piano bench and a friend named Stewie Scharff strummed a guitar with its strings slackened to the point of atonality....": https://www.songfacts.com/facts/simon-garfunkel/cecilia

    The song's origins lie in a late-night party attended by the duo and friends. The song's rhythm was developed by Simon, Garfunkel, and Simon's younger brother, Eddie. They recorded it for fun utilizing a Sony tape recorder and employing reverberation. https://bit.ly/3aGZi6d
