The Top Ten

1 America

A song everyone can appreciate! - Graham

My favourite song of all time. - PetSounds

I couldn't agree with you more. Also, my favorite song of all time. - Beatlesboy9

2 The Sound of Silence

Debut singles don't come much finer. - PetSounds

3 My Little Town

Anyone who's lived in a small town can relate to this. - PetSounds

Every time I hear this song I just can't help but sing along.

My favorite PS song. Reminds me of high school!

4 Bridge Over Troubled Water

The album and its title track topped both the album and single charts in both the US and the UK, simultaneously. Talk about a mega-hit! - PetSounds

5 Kodachrome
6 The Boxer

This is the song that made me fall in love with Paul Simon's writing. I'm only 15 years old and hearing this song for the first time as a young child I was simply amazed by his style of writing. It is impossible for me to pick my absolute favorite Paul Simon song because I just love them all. Although I think Cecilia should definitely be on this list, or at least as one of the contenders anyway.

7 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

His lyrical skills shine prominently through in this song, keeping such a robust, ahead of time beat, with lyrics hat make sense.

8 Mrs. Robinson

Such a catchy classic that everyone sings along to. - PetSounds

9 Homeward Bound
10 Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard

The Contenders

11 You Can Call Me Al
12 The Cool, Cool River
13 The Only Living Boy In New York

So sad for me, because it chronicles his split with Garfunkel. - PetSounds

15 Further to Fly
16 Graceland
17 Late in the Evening
18 Still Crazy After All These Years
