The top five songs of...... Paul Simon (solo or with Garfunkel)

As things seem to have quietened down on the music front I thought I would continue with part four of the OCCASIONAL series.

May I politely suggest that we wait until this drops off the front page or we sign another player/s before any of us starts another so avoiding the wrath of the Gang of Four : - )

5. Only Living Boy in New York- "I get all the news I need in the weather report"

4. Me and Julio down in the School yard - Still not sure what it was that they were doing that was against the law?

3. Slip sliding away - I love a sad song

2. Homeward bound - Ditto. Written on Widnes Railway station while PS was waiting for a train

1. Obvious child - World music. PS invented it.

  • 1. Homeward Bound
    2. Sound of Silence
    3. Bookends
    4. The Boxer
    5. Bridge over Troubled Water
  • Call me Al..................or whatever it was called...
  • Paul Simon is probably my favourite "popular music" artist and there are so many to choose from.

    Today's 5 in no particular order:

    1) I am a rock

    2) The Boxer

    3) Sounds of Silence

    4) Kodachrome

    5) Peace Like a river
  • I can't think of a bad song to be honest and there are so many from which to choose

    1. Cathy's Song - "there but for the grace of you go I" - it always makes me cry

    2. The Boxer - "just a come on from the whores on 7th Ave" - always loved that line

    3. Bridge Over Troubled Water - " sail on silver girl" - building to the climax

    4. Under African Skies - "josephs face was black as the night and the pale yellow moon shone in his eyes" - great poetry

    5. Homeward Bound - "I'm sitting in a railway station" - somewhere in England wasn't it Crewe possibly?

    A few years ago I changed trains at Widnes (was going to our game at Anfield), where I saw a plaque claiming this was the station where the song was written.

    IMO One of the worst stations I have ever waited for a train.

    I don't blame them, probably the first and only thing they have that they can claim.

    F*** me! He's even moaning about the top five format now : - )
  • For me, no particular order.....

    The Boxer - PS storytelling at his best
    Under African Skies - perfect harmony from Linda Rondstat
    Homeward Bound - perfectly capturing a mood
    Sound of Slience - for the darker moods
    Still crazy after all these years - is this about die hard Charlton supporters?
