Most people don't know or expect it, But I love Simon And Garfunkel. There music is strangely and beautifully desolate in a way, Which I love. So anyone else here listen to them? I know we gotta have some fans here smile.gif



And just last year, still a godly performance

Me too. My CD collection consists of 80's metal, neo-classical shred, acid rock and... simon and garfunkle. But they're so good!

I like 'For Emily Whenever I May Find Her'

of course,

yeah, they have something very deep about them,

I've heard spanish versions that modify the lyrics to make them catholic, are the english lyrics in any form christian?

Most definitely, I actually got into them through Nevermore. Warrel Dane is a huge fan of them, and when they released "Dead Heart In A Dead World" it had a cover of The Sound Of Silence. Though the music was extremely different, since then I have been a fan of Simon And Garfunkel.

I have couple of their live albums on CDs somewhere.. Their live performances are just pure awesomeness.. Often having numerous different instrumentalists on stage, creating full, beautiful arrangements. Not to mention the songs are legendary..
