Life's Meaning

Hello my darling. So clearly I love Paul Simon (don't worry I love Artie too). Although I do love these guys, I am also on a quest to find life's meaning. I want to inspire people and change their lives for the better because making people smile gives me so much happiness <3 How I plan to do this? Through my music, thoughtfulness, great care and magical hugs. I'm a singer/songwriter/player who's 16 and wants to make some friends so feel free to ask me anything.

A hysterical non-song by Paul Simon.  There are two versions of this song; the first is subtitled “Or How I Was Lyndon Johnson’d Into Submission" and is from the Paul Simon Songbook.  Its arrangement is cruder (just guitar), but the lyrics are funnier. In that version, the line above goes “…mothered, fathered, aunt &amp; uncled, Tom Wilson’d, Art Garfunkel’d”.  Tom Wilson is the Columbia Studies producer who overdubbed 12-string guitar, bass and drums (w/o Paul or Artie’s knowledge) onto The Sound of Silence, which propelled the song into the mainstream.
In the second version, “Or How I Was Robert McNamara’d Into Submission" (from Simon &amp; Garfunkel’s Parsley, Sage, Rosemary &amp; Thyme), Tom Wilson’s name is replaced by Roy Halee’s, since he was Simon &amp; Garfunkel’s recording engineer.  The song is a cute way of paying homage to the S&amp;G team, while still getting a little dig in about how Artie and Roy sometimes overruled Paul.
I kinda want this on a T-shirt, ha!

At the 17th Annual GRAMMY Awards (1975), the unlikely power trio of Paul Simon, John Lennon and Andy Williams presented the last award of the night for Record Of The Year. The three teamed up for some surreal but entertaining comedy referring to all of their former partners—Art Garfunkel, Paul McCartney and Claudine Longet—with the former Beatle in particular coming off as simultaneously charming and mocking. Memorably, when an absent Olivia Newton-John won the award for “I Honestly Love You,” Art Garfunkel—wearing a faux tux-T-shirt for the occasion—was chosen to accept on her behalf. “I thought I told you to wait in the car,” Simon quipped. Garfunkel also got in a great jab, asking Simon, “Still writing, Paul?”

Happy Earth Day :)
