    Default Season 264 - The Sounds of Simon



    This week's theme is very simple. Songs written by Paul Simon.

    Please note, it's songs written by him so please don't include songs by other writers he has covered either solo or with Art Garfunkel.

    Paul Simon is one of the foremost songwriters of our time and it's time we had a week devoted to his songs. No excluded songs, bring his well known and his less well known ones. All are good. I'm sure you folks will do his songs justice and I look forward to your interpretations of a great singer & songwriter.

    Usual Rules
    a) Ukulele should be the main instrument though other instruments are fine in addition.
    b) Start and finish midnight Hawaii time on Sunday as usual so 8 days.
    c) Multi tracking, plugging in etc. are all OK
    d) Three song limit. I might ease up on this later in the week.

    What! We've never had a week devoted to "Rhymin' Simon?" I agree! It's definitely overdue! He is one of the foremost songwriters of our time, and one who has incorporated both a multitude of cross cultural influences and developed an appreciation by a world-wide audience. Great theme Geoff!
