Top 20 Simon and Garfunkel Songs

Been on a kick lately. One of my all-time favorite folk artists.
20Simon and Garfunkel
Bookends


"Fakin' It" - Just an upbeat, Beatles-esque rock ditty.
19Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


"El Condor Pasa / If I Could" - The whimsical strings combined with the forlorn vocals/lyrics make this a great song.
18Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


"Song for the Asking" - Gorgeous song to end this duo's career together.
17Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


"The 59th Street Bridge Song" - A wonderful "feel good" song to put a kick in your step as you walk down the street.
16Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


"So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright" - Layered, elaborate strings and a gorgeous tribute.
15Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


"Cecilia" - Catchiest and funnest song in their discog.
14Simon and Garfunkel
Bookends


"Mrs. Robinson" - A S&G classic, the acoustics guitars and vocal melodies here are downright awesome.
13Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


7 O'Clock News / Silent Night - An eerie 2-minute outro that plays the political section of the 7 o'clock news in the background of the classic Christmas hymnal. It's such an effective goosebump-raiser, combining the beauty of God's love with the ugliness of humanity.
12Simon and Garfunkel
Bookends


Bookends Theme - Another intro type of track, but extremely haunting. What it accomplishes in terms of mood/lyrics in just a little over a minute is incredible.
11Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


The Dangling Conversation - Perhaps their lushest display of orchestral folk.
10Simon and Garfunkel
Bookends


Old Friends - Like a more stripped down version of the above, this is a string-laden ballad that takes my breath away every time.
9Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


Homeward Bound - Song reminds me of nearly every road trip I've ever taken. Perfect mid-tempo song for any homecoming.
8Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


Bridge Over Troubled Water - Best pure vocal display in the duo's entire repertoire.
7Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


Scarborough Fair - Depressing, haunting, yet extremely warm and proximal. A calling card for this band and the type of music they do best.
6Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


The Boxer - A heart-shattering tale of abandonment set to crashing drums. A very moving song regardless of context.
5Simon and Garfunkel
Sounds of Silence


I Am a Rock - A bitter and angry song, especially for these guys, but it works surprisingly well.
4Simon and Garfunkel
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme


For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her - This is one of the most romantic songs I've ever heard, hands down.
3Simon and Garfunkel
Bridge Over Troubled Water


The Only Living Boy In New York - Maybe the most uplifting song S&G have ever done, this never fails to raise my spirits. Cathartic, climactic, and beautiful.
2Simon and Garfunkel
Sounds of Silence


The Sound of Silence - The melody here is the definition of "haunting" and the lyrics make it arguably the greatest song they've ever written. In general, it's probably one of the best songs ever written, period.
1Simon and Garfunkel
Bookends


America - My personal favorite song from Simon and Garfunkel. I love how the meaning of the song could be taken so many different ways - the figurative, or literal, search for America and what it means.
