Simon and Garfunkels Greatest Hits by Paul SimonAs greatest hits collections go, this is about as good as it gets. The best songs penned by Paul Simon rank among the greatest in the history of pop music. America. The Boxer. Sounds Of Silence. Bridge Over Troubled Water. The blended harmony of the voices of Simon and Garfunkel are both unique and exquisite. And best of all, the music is timeless. The only complaint with this set is the in-between song sound effects. In various spots, the songs are given a live audience to studio recordings with cheering and applause at the end. Surely these classics could have been left alone and presented as originally intended. The cheering crowds dont add anything to these otherwise brilliant tracks. But for songwriting and performance excellence, there arent many compilations better than this one.

Simon, Released on Wednesday Morning, 3 a. Simon, Released on Sounds of Silence A winter's day In a deep and dark December I am alone Gazing from my window To the streets below On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow I am a rock I am an island I've built walls A fortress deep and mighty That none may penetrate I have no need of friendship Friendship causes pain It's laughter and it's loving I disdain I am a rock I am an island Don't talk of love Well I've heard the word before It's sleeping in my memory I won't disturb the slumber Of feelings that have died If I never loved I never would have cried I am a rock I am an island I have my books And my poetry to protect me I am shielded in my armor Hiding in my room Safe within my womb I touch no one and no one touches me I am a rock I am an island And a rock feels no pain And an island never cries The Dangling Conversation P. Simon, Released on Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme It's a still life water color Of a now late afternoon As the sun shines through the curtain lace And shadows wash the room And we sit and drink our coffee Couched in our indifference Like shells upon the shore You can hear the ocean roar In the dangling conversation And the superficial sighs The borders of our lives And you read your Emily Dickinson And I my Robert Frost And we note our place with bookmarkers That measure what we've lost Like a poem poorly written We are verses out of rhythm Couplets out of rhyme In syncopated time And the dangling conversation And the superficial sighs Are the borders of our lives Yes, we speak of things that matter With words that must be said "Can analysis be worthwhile? Simon, Released on Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme Slow down, you move too fast You've got to make the morning last Just kicking down the cobblestones Looking for fun and feeling groovy Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy Hello lampost, what'cha knowing I've come to watch your flowers growin' Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me Doo-it in doo doo, feeling groovy Ba da da da da da da, feeling groovy I got no deeds to do No promises to keep I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me Life I love you, all is groovy A Hazy Shade Of Winter P. Simon, Released on Bookends Time, time, time See what's become of me While I looked around For my possibilities I was so hard to please But look around Leaves are brown And the sky is a hazy shade of winter Hear the Salvation Army band Down by the riverside It's bound to be a better ride Than what you've got planned Carry your cup in your hand And look around Leaves are brown And the sky is a hazy shade of winter Hang onto your hopes, my friend That's an easy thing to say But if your hopes should pass away Simply pretend That you can build them again Look around The grass is high The fields are ripe It's the springtime of my life Seasons change with the scenery Weaving time in a tapestry Won't you stop and remember me At any conveient time? Funny how my memory skips While looking over manuscripts Of unpublished rhyme Drinking my vodka and lime I look around Leaves are brown And the sky is a hazy shade of winter Look around Leaves are brown There's a patch of snow on the ground At The Zoo P.

The duo started the decade as painfully earnest folk singers before evolving into one of the era's most adventurous artists. Their final two albums -- 's 'Bookends' and 's 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' -- are as aurally exciting as any record that came out of popular music's most fertile period. Then there are the songs themselves, penned by Paul Simon and sung by him and Art Garfunkel in a glorious mix of earthbound realism and angelic idealism. Simon's prettiest song, and one of the most gorgeous songs ever written, was penned for his girlfriend whom he met in England while living there in the mid '60s. It's a love song, and a rather uncomplicated one, but Simon's plaintive voice, the spare acoustic guitar and, most of all, the lovely melody make it one of the most endearing songs recorded by Simon, who appears without Garfunkel on the track. Simon was messing around with world music long before 'Graceland' and "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard. Simon would explore global music more deeply throughout his solo career, but this handclap-fueled ditty is where it all began.
