“A Hazy Shade of Winter” is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by Simon & Garfunkel in 1966 for their 1968 album, Bookends (although it also appeared on their Live from New York City, 1967). It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the second most popular song on the album after “Mrs. Robinson,“ which would later reach #1. The lyrics evoke the passage of the seasons, but (as the title suggests) focusing on the gloominess of winter. The chorus of the song repeats: :But look around,
leaves are brown now
And the sky
is a hazy shade of winter

Look around,
leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground. Read on...
