Paul Simon Writes Theme Song For Louis C.K.’s ‘Horace And Pete’

Paul Simon has written the theme song to Louis C.K.’s surprise new web series, Horace And Pete, available now at

The show stars C.K. and Steve Buscemi as brothers who run a seedy dive bar called Horace And Pete’s. The mournful acoustic guitar tune plays at the opening of the episode, the intermission at the 32-minute mark, and the closing credits, at which point the lyrics come in: “Hell no/ I can’t complain about my problems/ I’m OK the way things are/ I pull my stool up to the bar/ At Horace And Pete’s/ Sometimes I wonder/ Why do we tear ourselves to pieces?/ I just need some time to think/ Or maybe I just need a drink/ At Horace And Pete’s.”
