Quickie quiz

Who can tell me the connection between my Current Read (Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys) and the Current Song Stuck in My Head ("Crazy Love, Vol. II by Paul Simon)?*

It's a two-word answer.

*I include the names not because I think you're incapable of referencing the sidebar, but because within a few days the sidebar will change, and you might drive yourself batty wondering what the connection is between Paul Witcover's Tumbling After (the next book in line) and, say, the theme song to HBO's Deadwood. Though I bet an argument could be made.

Fat Charlie. And I couldn't get that song out of my head while I read it, either.

Yay! And as far as I know, Gaiman's never said whether there's a connection. The words do fit the character, though he's not an archangel.

Read the book last summer. Loved it. DOn't know the song.

It's off of Graceland.

I can't believe it, that song never once came to me while reading that book. I played that album to death during freshman year of college.
