quote by Paul Simon

One of the things that upset me was some of the criticism leveled at Simon and Garfunkel. I always took exception to it, but actually I agree with a lot of it.

Most Powerful Garfunkel quotations

I couldn't imagine a day without music.

It relaxes and stimulates me in equal measure and I hate the sound of silence - the concept, I mean, not the track by Simon and Garfunkel.

I love Soundgarden, I love Rage Against the Machine, Simon & Garfunkel.

I don't think that Simon and Garfunkel as a live act compares to Simon and Garfunkel as a studio act.

My guilty pleasure is Simon & Garfunkel. I'm embarrassed about it. They're dorky.

I actually prefer female voices to listen to, mostly, but among the male singers whose voices I like are Jeff Buckley, Art Garfunkel, that sort of voice. Contemporary crooners rather than rockers.

I like records. My favorite is Simon and Garfunkel.

I've listened to Dylan my entire life.

My dad was a huge Bob Dylan fan, so we listened to his music, Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel, and all that kind of stuff. It opened up a whole world of this music that I'm now obsessed with.

A kitchen without an ironing board? Are you kidding? It's un-American.

It's like Simon without Garfunkel.

Most of the time, when I had hits as a soloist - maybe not so much with Simon & Garfunkel - I was surprised they were hits. I didn't know what the hits were. I never thought that 'Loves Me Like A Rock' was going to be a hit, or 'Mother And Child Reunion,' or '50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.' They didn't sound like what the hits sounded like at the time. Radio was more open to things that weren't exactly what every other hit was.
