Default Simon and Garfunkle

One of the most prolific song smiths that have ever been. Their massive hits are unquestioned in their greatness, but I think even they "deep tracks" are something to write home about. The song "A simple desultry phillipic" offers me something new every time I listen to it. I think Simon is one of the better writers of all time (though his solo stuff was a tad too avant garde for me). To me, their certainly in the top 5 song writers of all time. If they ever assmble "the great american songbook" then they should have at least 3 songs in there.

Your turn.

I have 'the definitive collection' I like it. I used to listen to them a lot when i was little, mainly because of my parents, it was always playing in the car (on tape of course) so i spose i just grew up listening to them, which is kinda cool. Theyre on the Almost Famous soundtrack too. I love that film. mm hmm.

I rather like 'america' and 'mrs robinson'

yeup.

Dave Matthews covers that pretty well. The fiddle really sells the song.

Paul Simon is an amazing guitarist. After he went solo he took courses at the Conservatory of Music. I'd say he's one of the best singer song writers ever.
