Paul Frederic Simon je americký spevák a skladateľ. Do povedomia verejnosti sa dostal v roku 1965, keď spolu s Artom Garfunkelom založil duo Simon & Garfunkel. Paul Simon bol autorom väčšiny ich tvorby a aj väčšiny hitov, ako sú skladby „The Sound of Silence“, „The Boxer“, „Mrs. Robinson“ a „Bridge Over Troubled Water“. Po roku 1970, kedy sa duo rozpadlo, Simon začal svoju celkom úspešnú sólovú kariéru. V roku 1986 nahral album Graceland, ktorý bol inšpirovaný africkou hudbou a patril k umelcom, ktorí uviedli do stredného prúdu hudobný žáner nazvaný world music. Skladby Paula Simona boli pozitívne vnímané tak verejnosťou, ako aj hudobnou kritikou. Za svoju viac ako štyridsaťročnú hudobnú kariéru mal výrazný komerčný úspech a v roku 2006 bol časopisom Time označený za „jednu z osobností, ktoré formovali svet“.

Paul Simon bol dvakrát uvedný do Rokenrolovej siene slávy. V roku 1990 ako člen zoskupenia Simon and Garfunkel a v roku 2001 ako sólový umelec.

„And the war rages on in a land called somewhere“

— Paul Simon
Context: And the war rages on in a land called somewhere And Generals order their men to kill And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten While a little cloud weeps on the side of a hill. "The Side of a Hill" (written under the pseudonym "Paul Kane" out of his admiration for the film Citizen Kane) on The Paul Simon Song Book (1965)

„Maybe's the exit that I'm looking for.“

— Paul Simon
Context: Maybe the heart is part of the mist. And that's all that there is or could ever exist. Maybe and maybe and maybe some more. Maybe's the exit that I'm looking for. I Don't Believe

„We don't mean to mess things up,
But mess them up we do.“

— Paul Simon
Context: We don't mean to mess things up, But mess them up we do. And then it's "Oh, I'm sorry." Here's a smiling photograph Of love when it was new. At a birthday party. Make a wish and close your eyes: Surprise, surprise, surprise. Everything About It Is a Love Song

„The listener isn't aware that they are new notes, but the sound is pleasing to the ear. I change the key, and somehow it's fresh because you haven't heard those notes before.“

— Paul Simon
Context: I didn't want to repeat the same notes in the second verse that I used in the first, so I wrote out all the notes of the song and all the notes that were missing in the scale, given that there are twelve notes from octave to octave. All those notes that weren't in the scale were the ones I wanted in for the next verse. The listener isn't aware that they are new notes, but the sound is pleasing to the ear. I change the key, and somehow it's fresh because you haven't heard those notes before. As quoted in "Paul Simon's Workshop at the Guitar Study Center" by Richard Albero and Fred Styles in Guitar Player (April 1975), p. 21

„Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away.“

— Paul Simon
Context: Slip slidin' away Slip slidin' away. You know the nearer your destination The more you're slip slidin' away. Slip Slidin' Away

„You'd better keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool.“

— Paul Simon
Context: Little kid dancin' in the grass, legs like rubber band. It's summertime, summertime. There's a line at the candy stand. Keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool. You'd better keep an eye on them children, eye on them children in the pool. Beautiful

„I shoot a thought into the future, and it flies like an arrow, through my lifetime. And beyond.“

— Paul Simon
Context: I shoot a thought into the future, and it flies like an arrow, through my lifetime. And beyond. If I ever come back as a tree, or a crow, or even the wind-blown dust; find me on the ancient road in the song when the wires are hushed. Hurry on and remember me, as I'll remember you. Far above the golden clouds, the darkness vibrates. The earth is blue. And everything about it is a love song. Everything about it. Everything About It Is a Love Song

„Maybe the heart is part of the mist.
And that's all that there is or could ever exist.“

— Paul Simon
Context: Maybe the heart is part of the mist. And that's all that there is or could ever exist. Maybe and maybe and maybe some more. Maybe's the exit that I'm looking for. I Don't Believe

„Still crazy after all these years.“

— Paul Simon
Context: Now I sit by my window and I watch the cars I fear I’ll do some damage One fine day But I would not be convicted By a jury of my peers Still crazy Still crazy Still crazy after all these years. Still Crazy After All These Years

„And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening“

— Paul Simon
Context: And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never shared No one dared Disturb the sound of silence. The Sound of Silence
