aww, I love Simon and Garfunkel's music.
Even when they parted and each went solo.

Art came out with this jewel!

I think I have the lyrics to Paul's "You can call me Al" memorized! :lol:

I've always liked Simon and Garfunkel; even when they started out as Tom & Jerry (Hey Schoolgirl).

Then there was Jerry Landis (Paul Simon) doing "The Lone Teen Ranger". One of my favorites. Charted #97 in January of 1963...

The worst songs I've heard are those that stations play over and over and over again.

That's the main reason I refuse to listen to Boston anymore and have done so for the last 15 or so years. All some stations play of them and other groups are a few of their most popular songs or biggest hits even though the artists had other songs that were very good.

Nothing wrong with Disco.

It's just that you don't like it.

Around where I live in the later 80's early 90's I seem to remember one station playing Christmas music all day the day after thanksgiving then interspersing it in their regular rotation of music throughout the Christmas season.

Agreed


This all boils down to people's own opinions and tastes which is why I refrained to comment on some of the posts here.

Hate to say it, but I cannot no longer listen to the Beatles for this exact reason. All that Beatlemania back in the 70's did them in for me! Seemed like every station I turned to was playing them. Same songs over and over. Too sad, I enjoyed their music before that.

I got really tired of hearing Beep Beep by the Playmates back then.
