Merritt What's your favourite Paul Simon song? (99* d) RE: What's your favourite Paul Simon song? 06 Dec 02

My favorite these days is "Song for the Asking."

I used to play in an instrumental duo that covered pop, swing, celtic, hymns, etc. tunes. One revelation about Simon's music for me was that few of his tunes had the structure and melody to stand on their own musically, IMHO of course. Beatles, Everly Brothers, in cotrast, offered a lot more to work with.
