From Scarborough Fair to Graceland....

"Where Do I Begin?"

13th October 1934 when a beautiful future singer was born in Greece. 

Happy Musical Birthday 


She sang in Greek - of course. And also in English, Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese.

Her vast repertoire of songs also include some from the birthday boy whose 74 today.

Happy Musical Birthday 


Teamed up with Art Garfunkel, Paul Simon sang some of the best folk duets ever in the 1960s and 70s. While I wasn't born then, I've sung many of these songs in later years in harmony for competitions and performances with my brother 'The Boxer', in college - 'Scarbourough Fair', 'Mrs. Robinson' from The Graduate (1967), and this favourite that I've sung as a group at the parish Summer Camp singing competition - 'The 59th Street Bridge Song' aka 'Feeling Groovy'.

Time has passed by. Pack your bags. We're going to Graceland. If you'd like, "You Can Call Me Al" - that what he sings. 

And to sign off, here's a song he sang 40 years ago - and it's about numbers - '50 Ways to Leave Your Lover'.
