Thank you, A Hopeful Pessimist! That's exactly what I was going to say. I find it horrible that they were childhood friends, recorded songs together, we're close as brothers, and then they broke up and Paul Simon started singing their songs alone, as if to say that he could do so much better singing these songs now that he didn't have Art Garfunkel singing with him. It's hurtful, isn't it?!?!?!?!

The guy with the Afro is missing. Without the garfunkel guy, It just doesn't sound right. Why did they ever break up!!! It's a world renowned tragedy.

Yeah, it wants both of them. But it's all right.

yeah, there was some Garf' missing....j u s t like a hot dog missing mustard...or poetically, a beautiful flower without a scent...

But sometimes no one can sing a song as well as the person who wrote it . . . even if Art has a better voice, the song came from within Paul

We all need a slice of silence now and then.

Not bad, but better with both of them. No doubt about that.

"Flowers Never Bend with the Rainfall"? I always thought this was "Sounds of Silence". But then I'm not a musicologist , I just like music.

I think PS is great on his own, but This song NEEDS BOTH of them.

Nice version of the S&G classic...th e song that MADE Simon and Garfunkle in the first place. I was playing it on the guitar only 3 days ago; so many words to remember, and great words too ! Not easy to play and sing...Thank s Paul Simon! You should have been nicer to Artie though...he was THE VOICE ! His voice made " Bridge Over Troubled Water" great. Really ! No doubt ! Thanks for letting him do that one; your voice would have gotten in the way - but hey, it's your song ! You wrote it ! Thanks .
