Simon and Garfunkel...
I really love the songs 'Sound Of Silence', 'Scarborough Fair', 'America' and 'Mrs. Robinson'.
The problem I have is that I think of them as bookwurms that want to be hippies.
Do you what I mean?
They are too normal for me and Simon solo is just like Cliff Richard.
Dull....and certainly not Rock N' Roll...
But again, they made some real gems, great anthems.

When S&G come up on my ipod on random it's a treat. Try listening to 2 or 3 in a row and I'm distracted by shiney objects.

as you said willie, s&g are great in small doses. my favorite is "for emily, wherever i may find her" - what haunting vocals by art garfunkel! paul simon solo does nothing for me.

i don't think either of these guys were ever "hippies" though - although garfunkel has been busted for pot a few times lately!

the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are kind of a guilty pleasure for me, but they're so COOL. I've been a fan of them for almost 3 years. Karen O. is the one with sex appeal and marketable fashion sense, but she's got 2 great musicians behind her, too. And she makes for a captivating frontwoman.
They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl in the body of a 60 year old career criminal who has already died 16 times...

Today I got 3 shiny new albums.

Talking Heads: "Speaking In Tongues"
Pixies: "Bossanova"
Phish: "Farmhouse"

I haven't listened to "Bossanova" yet, but "Speaking In Tongues" is awesome, a sophisticated party record. "Farmhouse" is very mellow and relaxing, but not boring.

One of my S&G memories is an interview with Paul, talking about the early days. He remembered sitting in his car in NYC in front of his house just hanging out with Artie and hearing "The Sounds Of Silence" on the radio for the first time, and hearing the DJ say that it was by the newest hit group, Simon and Garfunkel. Artie turned to him and said "Boy, I'll bet those two guys are having wild time now!".

Struck me as hysterically funny when he said it...

Cheers,
Dave

Fleetwood Mac isn't bad at all !

One of the best Fleetwood Mac songs is
an instrumental one, a long time before
Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham
did join Fleetwood Mac.
With Peter Green they did Albatros

But; Go your own way , Don't stop ,
Rhiannon , Landslide , Big Love they are good.

Rumours is very good album !

Don't know if this counts. I got a free CD off a mag a friend bought. What can I say I'm a tight arse. :oops:
Various artists. But Freakmeout you may be interested. It's got a song by Tanya Donelly on it. She of The Breeders with Kim Deal. There's a coincidence. :D
