Paul Frederic Simon ist ein US-amerikanischer Musiker und Schauspieler.

Zusammen mit seinem Freund Arthur Garfunkel, den er im Frühsommer 1953 bei den Proben zu dem Schauspiel Alice im Wunderland kennenlernte, bildete er zunächst das Musiker-Duo „Tom and Jerry“ . Später nannten sie sich schlicht „Simon & Garfunkel“, wobei Simon praktisch alle Songs komponierte. Der kommerzielle Durchbruch gelang ihnen im Jahre 1965 mit dem Lied The Sound of Silence.

Simon veröffentlichte auch unter den Namen „Jerry Landis“ und als Mitglied der Doo-Wop-Gruppe „Tico & the Triumphs“ Titel wie The Lone Teen Ranger und Motorcycle , das als Motorbiene in Deutschland in der Fassung mit Benny Quick zum Hit wurde. Außerdem verwendete er als Komponist einige Male das Pseudonym „Paul Kane“.

„And the sign said "The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound of silence"“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (1964), Context: And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said "The words of the prophets Are written on the subway walls And tenement halls And whispered in the sound of silence" The Sound of Silence

„Far above the golden clouds, the darkness vibrates.
The earth is blue.
And everything about it is a love song. Everything about it.“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: I shoot a thought into the future, and it flies like an arrow, through my lifetime. And beyond. If I ever come back as a tree, or a crow, or even the wind-blown dust; find me on the ancient road in the song when the wires are hushed. Hurry on and remember me, as I'll remember you. Far above the golden clouds, the darkness vibrates. The earth is blue. And everything about it is a love song. Everything about it. Everything About It Is a Love Song

„But all that is changed now.
Gone like a memory from the day before the fires.
People hungry for the voice of God
Hear lunatics and liars.Wartime prayers. Wartime prayers
In every language spoken.“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: Prayers offered in times of peace are silent conversations, Appeals for love, or love's release, in private invocationsBut all that is changed now. Gone like a memory from the day before the fires. People hungry for the voice of God Hear lunatics and liars.Wartime prayers. Wartime prayers In every language spoken. For every family scattered and broken. Wartime Prayers

„But you don't need to waste your time worrying about the marketplace,
Try to help the human race.
Struggling to survive its harshest hour.“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: Trust your intuition. It's just like goin' fishin'. You cast your line and hope you get a bite. But you don't need to waste your time worrying about the marketplace, Try to help the human race. Struggling to survive its harshest hour. Father and Daughter

„She said, why don't we both just sleep on it tonight
And I believe, in the morning you'll begin to see the light“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Still Crazy After All These Years (1975), Context: She said, why don't we both just sleep on it tonight And I believe, in the morning you'll begin to see the light And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right There must be fifty ways to leave your lover, fifty ways to leave your lover 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

„No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Context: No I would not give you false hope On this strange and mournful day But the mother and child reunion Is only a motion away, Oh, little darling of mine I can't for the life of me Remember a sadder day I know they say let it be But it just don't work out that way... Mother and Child Reunion

„I wanted to sing other types of songs that Simon and Garfunkel wouldn't do.“

—  Paul Simon
Context: I wanted to sing other types of songs that Simon and Garfunkel wouldn't do. "Mother and Child Reunion" for example, is not a song that you would have normally thought that Simon and Garfunkel would have done. It's possible that they might have. But it wouldn't have been the same, and I don't know if I would have been so inclined in that direction. So for me it was a chance to break out and gamble a little bit … The breakup had to do with a natural drifting apart as we got older and the separate lives that were more individual. We weren't so consumed with recording and performing. We had other activities … there was no great pressure to stay together other than money, which exerted very little influence upon us. … We didn't need the money. On the breakup of Simon and Garfunkel as a musical team. Interview with Jon Landau for Rolling Stone (1972); republished in The Rolling Stone Interviews: 1967-1980 (1989) edited by Peter Herbst, p. 210

„You'd better keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool.“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: Little kid dancin' in the grass, legs like rubber band. It's summertime, summertime. There's a line at the candy stand. Keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool. You'd better keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool. Beautiful

„Maybe the heart is part of the mist.
And that's all that there is or could ever exist.“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: Maybe the heart is part of the mist. And that's all that there is or could ever exist. Maybe and maybe and maybe some more. Maybe's the exit that I'm looking for. I Don't Believe

„And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (1964), Context: And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never shared No one dared Disturb the sound of silence. The Sound of Silence

„Instead of thinking in terms of chords, I think of voice-leading“

—  Paul Simon
Context: Instead of thinking in terms of chords, I think of voice-leading; that is, melody line and bass line, and where the bass line goes. If you do that, you'll have the right chord. [These voices] will give you some alternatives, and you can play those different alternatives to hear which one suits your ear... Keep the bass line moving so you don't stay in one spot: if you have an interesting bass line and you roll it against the melody, the chords are going to come out right. As quoted in "Paul Simon's Workshop at the Guitar Study Center" by Richard Albero and Fred Styles in Guitar Player (April 1975), p. 20

„How can you live in the Northeast?
How can you live in the South?“

—  Paul Simon
Song lyrics, Surprise (2006), Context: How can you live in the Northeast? How can you live in the South? How can you build on the banks of a river When the flood water pours from the mouth? How can you be a Christian? How can you be a Jew? How can you be a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu? How can you? How Can You Live In The Northeast?
