Top Ten Simon and Garfunkel Songs With the Best LyricsPetSounds
The Top Ten
My favorite. So many good lines but I most often quote
"A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest"
Paul's words often pierce my heart & soul yet I keep inviting him back. Such pure Truth.
And I have to mention Art's magnificent use of his heavenly voice - Billyv
Absolutely. This song's lyrics are a masterpiece, right up there with Tangled Up in Blue by Dylan.
Rather metaphorical, don't you think? - PetSounds
"Counting the cars on the New Jersey turnpike...they've all come to look for America"
It's so simple and obvious but deep and beautiful at the same time. - Knucklewood
Think about these lyrics. Study them, ponder them. Then tell me they aren't genius. - PetSounds
This one is most likely the best in my opinion. - Beatlesboy9
People writing songs that voices never shared...
But my words like silent raindrops fell...
And the sign said "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls..."
Talk about Darkness... - Billyv
Evidently Simon never forgot hit British girlfriend Kathy; she is also mentioned in "America". - PetSounds
An entire story in four lines. It makes me cry every time. - PetSounds
Wow what a great list!
