    I've always loved Simon and Garfunkel ever since I was a little kid. I grew up in the 80's and 90's & people always thought I was wierd because I'd rather listen to the "oldies" than anything that was current at the time. I'm 30 now and I still think  that S...

    A Love Once New Has Now Grown Cold

    For some reason, this song is with me today...I love S&G. So soothing. This song...is just haunting...April come she willWhen streams are ripe and swelled with rain;May, she will stay,Resting in my arms againJune, she´ll change her tune,In restless walks she´ll prowl the night...

    I'd Rather Be A Hammer Than A Nail.

    Everything they've done is wonderful, but particular favourites are El Condor Pasa, Homeward Bound and Mrs Robinson. They are my earliest childhood songs apart from Rolf Harris's Two Little Boys.

    In the early 60s Paul Simon spent some time in England before He joined up with Art Garfunkel. I was lucky enough to see him a couple of times in Folk clubs and his songs made a great impression me. I bought his vinyl record the Paul Simon song book a truly great folk record...

    The Boxer

    This is probably my favorite song by them, you feel sorry for this poor man who is a bum boxer. It was very well written and Simon & Garfunkel are two of my musical hero's. These two along with Bob Dylan changed music forever.

    Favourite "Learning"-music

    I always listen to music when I learn something. I know.. it's supposed to distract you from it. But it's a little different with me: I can concentrate better when I listen to music, because the music kind of kills all my thoughts. And within a few minutes I won't really hear...

    I actually have a cd by them. I loved them when I was a major hippy. The songs were fun, relaxing, and they always had some kind of meaning.  They were good to get stoned to.

    Their music is real and very "honest" and comforting in a way. I especially love Sound of Silence. You really do not hear too much of them any more though.

    Trying To Remember The Name Of A Song I Heard In The 1960's,..

    It was an instrumental song with a funny 1930´s sound, kind of reminds me of the Old Mighty Mouse theme, not the tune, but the musical instrument sounds, a little. This would have been in the late 1960´s maybe early 1970´s? It was played on the radio and I remember hearing it...

    I Miss Simon And Garfunkel

    Oh why oh why did they have to stop recording together? Why is it when you love something so much, like their music and harmonies, that it has to end? They sang and put into words what my heart was feeling but could not express. I do miss them so much.
