American Tune

This song seems prophetic. "When I think of the road we're traveling on, I can't help but wonder what's gone wrong." Sad to say, but that sums it all up.

Favorite Paul Simon song

Of the many favorites, my very favorite after all the years is still The Sound of Silence.
—Guest Michael Gutierrez-May

The Boxer

This is his best song so far because it depicts life as a whole - our basic aspirations, dreams, heartaches, and triumphs.
—Guest Greg Taag

CALL ME AL

One of Paul's great songs. He's an incredible artist and songwriter I had the pleasure to record in NYC at the Hit Factory.

"American Tune"

Two other favorites are "Old Friends" and "Hazy Shade of Winter." But "American Tune" never fails to bring tears to my eyes. Such a beautiful melody and rich harmony!
