Seth Rudetsky: "Mockingbird" (Carly Simon and James Taylor). Another Carly Simon song, and it's so weird! It's a nursery rhyme (!), and I love how the whole first time through Carly Simon is on the melody, and James Taylor sings the mockingbird-type echo. And then it all switches the second time through! It's like "Money, Money" from Cabaret!
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life.
