    Simon and Garfunkel top 3



    There is no denying that Paul Simon was the creating force behind Simon & Garfunkel. But Garfunkel’s voice and singing style also contribute a lot to S&G success in folk music genre, with song Bridge Over Troubled Water being a good example.

    Ranked accordingly:

    3. Homeward Bound from Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

    2. El Condor Pasa (If I Could) from Bridge Over Troubled Water

    I don't know if I can pick just three. And if I can, the top three can change on any given day. Right now I'm going to pick:

    Kathy's song
    Homeward Bound
    The Dangling Conversation

    I don't think I've heard a single S&G song all the way through.

    I didn't know that. Thanks Smokey. Doesn't have the same ring, now that I know.

    S&G are one of my favorite groups to listen too. I really can't see how any one can dislike their music. It's one of my go to groups when I want to lay back and relax. They have great lyric's, harmonies and catchy tunes.
