Are Oak Cliff native Edie Brickell and her husband, Paul Simon, house hunting in Oak Cliff?

That’s what Simon implied during his performance at the Winspear Opera House Sunday night, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“We decided we are going to look for a house in Texas. Well, one of us decided … We think Oak Cliff!”

According to the newspaper, he then said, “Well, it’s not going to be Highland Park.”

Oh, snap. Highland Park is dead. Long live Oak Cliff.

    A song titled “Oak Cliff Bra” was on the second New Bohemians album, and described a woman sitting on her porch watching a squirrel run across the street.

    I am pretty sure she lived here in the 80s and if not she has a lot of friends that live here now.
