One of the most celebrated duos in the world!
The duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel was a hugely successful American folk duo.
Their hits include Homeward Bound, Scarborough Fair, The Boxer, Mrs. Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water, and American Tune.
American Tune being the only popular music song that has seriously been considered as an alternative to the American national anthem Stars And Stripes.
Starting out in 1953, in a school play adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, they parted ways as possibly the most successful duo of all time in 1970, when Paul pursued a solo career. Since then they’ve had several reunions and remained good friends.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there,
she once was a true love of mine.
