Do you like him on his own or with Garfunkel? What do you think is his best album/song?

I like them both together and apart. My favorite apart song by Paul Simon is probably Loves Me Like A Rock. Not only is the song cute and catchy in its own right--and very historical--but it was, at that time, about the favorite song of a very dear friend who will be part of the book I'm now writing.

I had to go and refresh my memory! It's a good song - but has he ever done a bad one?

I loved Paul with Art, because they made such beautiful music together. I have a memory of me in my freshman year in college. My boyfriend and I were sitting together with no one else around in the food service lounge listening to Bridge Over Troubled Water. Although they've done some great work, they could never ever surpass that song.

That has to be one of my favourite of all time! I can see why it might be yours.

Too funny. My daugther loved Simon and Garfunkel and performed many of their tunes.

I like Paul Simon on his own. I don't know many Simon and Garfunkel songs. But I don't like that type of music much. I don't like to hear two guys with pretty voices singing slow folk songs together.

I agree, they do have a rather 'feminine' feel about their voices. It never bothered me, I think, but it's not evveryone's cup of tea!

I never cease to be amazed at the way he weaves his way through the rhythms and cross rhythms.

Ah yes, back in the day when we were slowly learning the site. I like him both ways, I think my favorite solo would be 'Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard'

I, too, like him both with and without Garfunkel.Perhaps my favourite tracks are the ones he did in conjunction with various South African groups and, if I had to pick a track, it would have to be "Diamonds on the Soles of my Shoes" just because it's so upbeat in mood and words.

There are so many tunes that they perfomed that I love. One being Bridge Over Trouble Water. If I had to choose one, that would be it. My daugther performed this song when in high school and she brought the house down with her performance.

It's such a lovely song to sing and to listen to! It just has to be an all-time classic, I think. Notice how many other people have mentioned it when they can remember nothing else.

I dont think i really know much that he did in the band (i probably would if you said but im not recalling on my own) however on his own i absolutly love him. I remember my mom listening to paul simon while she was working around the house and now i do the same, my faves are the songs on his album that has diamonds on the soles of her shoes (sorry i dont have the album in front of me and dont feel like looking for it right now). It always makes me happy when i listen to it even though my husband makes fun of me for it. Im sure my kids will remember me at my happiest when were listening to music as well, i always put on music to do housework and we end up dancing all around the house as we get the chores done and it makes it much more fun to do the chores while your dancing around and the kids love seeing mommy acting silly. Thanks for reminding me how much i love my Paul Simon album ill have to get it out tommorrow when we start doing the chores. cheers +

Hehe ... the vision of you dancing round the house had me laughing! Now don't you wear out that album, you bet your kids will want a copy to do their chores by when they are grown!

My favorite Paul Simon CD was not one that he actually performed on. It a CD the New York voices did or his songs.

I like them both ways, they had some great songs. And the single song Al, is still fresh in my mind that paul sang. They were great together or apart.

I like him with Art Garfunkel. I loved the harmony.

Paul Simon, is he the one who sang 'wherever I lay my hat'? I like that song. Or am I getting my singers muddled up? I like Bridge over troubled water too.

I can only think of Bridge Over Troubled Waters, so I'm afraid he must be quite forgettable with or without Garfunkle.
