Paul Simon as “Neil” on SNL
Oh my God yesssss this is hilarious. Gosh I would love to be her…
Simon and Garfunkel, “Overs” - The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (10/15/67)
When I first saw this on cable TV in the early 90’s, I was watching it with my brother who was in his early teens. When Paul Simon finished his intro, he grinned and asked, “what’s wrong with his voice?” I think that, from now on, whenever I need to do between-song banter I will use the same made-up accent he uses here. The song and performance is amazing, of course …
Simon & Garfunkel, November 6, 1993 (the day after Artie’s 52nd Birthday) at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert.
- Musically this is a very interesting concert, since there are little (but significant) alterations in the song arrangements throughout. The mood is nice, and both ‘boys’ are in pretty good form, though Paul’s pitch and timing are a little odd at times.
- Love the little “No juggling” jab on Paul’s part. Here’s the context.
- His Milwaukee Brewers spontaneous bit is also one of the highlights.
- And Artie… well, between the voice, the smile and the Fonzie look, he’s Still Pretty After All These Years. This concert he opens up a little with the gesturing and the not-quite dancing, which make me smile and cringe at the same time. Guess I just prefer his timid frightened gazelle stance ;)

Well that’s delicious…I agree.
