Well if we want to be cute - technically, the sun is never "out" - or we would be in trouble!

Paul Simon was born in 1941 and not as claimed in the first post in 1942. (just a correction, not passing judgement about a fellow poster)

Ayup. Allmusic.com verifies that Paul Simon was born October 13, 1941. That makes him 65 years old, which makes me feel really young.

But in the old guy's honor:


Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Twas a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radios singing songs
All the favorite melodies

He was a navy man
Stationed in Newport News
She was a highschool queen
With nothing left to lose
She was a highschool queen
With nothing left to lose

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Twas a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radios singing songs
All the favorite melodies

Her name was Lorelei
She was his only girl
She called him Speedoo
But his Christian name was Mister Earl
She called him Speedoo
But his Christian name was Mister Earl

Was a sunny day
Not a cloud was in the sky
Not a negative word was heard
From the people passing by
Twas a sunny day
All the birdies in the trees
And the radios singing songs
All the favorite melodies

Subject: ADD: Have a Good time (Paul Simon)
From: Pauline L
Date: 13 Oct 06 - 04:33 AM

Yesterday it was my birthday
I hung one more year on the line
I should be depressed; my life's a mess,
But I'm having a good time.
Oo I've been loving and loving and loving;
I'm exhausted from loving so well.
I should go to bed, but a voice in my head says
Have a good time.

Have a good time. Have a good time. Have a good time.

Paranoia strikes deep in the heartland,
But I think it's all overdone.
Exaggeratinmg this, exaggerating that;
They don't have no fun.
I don't believe what I read in the papers;
They're just out to capture my dime.
I ain't worrying and I ain't scurrying;
I'm having a good time.

Have a good time. Have a good time. Have a good time.

Maybe I'm laughing my way to disaster;
Maybe my race has been run.
Maybe I'm blind to the fate of Mankind,
But what can be done?
So God bless the goods we was given,
And God bless the U.S. of A.
And God bless out standard of living;
Let's keep it that way.

Have a good time. Have a good time. Have a good time.

--- Have a Good Time by Paul Simon

A young man walks onto the stage of Stars in their Eyes, on crutches, with a plaster cast from his feet to his hips. Matthew Kelly introduces him as Simon.

"It's very brave of you to come out here," says Matthew.

"Please tell the audience what happened?"

"Well" replies Simon "about a year ago, I was driving with my uncle when we had a really bad accident. Unfortunately my uncle was killed outright but I survived. I was trapped in the car for six hours before I was eventually cut free."

"The doctors had me in surgery for 12 hours but they couldn't save my legs."

"That's terrible. But I see you have legs now. Are they artificial?" asks Matthew.

"No Matthew, while I was in hospital the doctors informed me that my uncle had in fact died, but that his legs were fine and with all the advances in medical science, they could graft the bottom half of his body onto mine. As you can see the operation was successful. I have been having physiotherapy for six months and hope to be walking fully again by the end of the year."

A huge round of applause erupts from the audience. Kelly responds with: "That's an unbelievable story. So tonight, who are you going to be?"









'Tonight, Matthew, I am going to be Simon and Halfuncle'

I was 18 when I met PS (he stayed with us after a gig at Grimsby FC) and he was 23 - so, if he is 65, that makes me 60!(well, next month anyway)

Ouch, Greg.

I could tell a joke about the German music duo, Schobert & Black, but I would have to tell too much before you could understand and everyone would be asleep by then.

My personal taste has a very broad definition of "folk" including some singer&songwriters. S&G jusbarely have not made it into my folk collection. Their records are at the other side of the room.

OK then, who IS a better songwriter than Paul Simon. Consider breadth, depth and consistency. NO-ONE, that's who!

I guess I know all the lyrics to all the Simon & Garfunkel songs by hears, and to many of the solo Paul Simon songs. To my mind, Lincoln Duncan is the perfect Paul Simon song, although my two favorite Paul Simon albums are later, Graceland and The Rhythm of the Saints - I like to play them loud, and in the dark. My family prefers that I play them when I'm alone in the car at night, which is fine with me.

He was 21 years when he wrote that song
He's 65 now, but he won't be for long
Time hurries on

And the leaves that are green turn to brown
