Tune Time - Kodachrome

This song, named after the Kodak 35mm film Kodachrome, is written and recorded by Paul Simon. For the week ending May 19, 1973, it made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and five weeks later, the song moved to number nine, just ahead of "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree". The song then became a major hit in the United States, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as well as the Billboard adult contemporary chart, but it was not released as a single in Britain because, according to American Top 40 host Casey Kasem, the British Broadcasting Corporation would not play the trademarked name.
