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.

„I wanted to sing other types of songs that Simon and Garfunkel wouldn't do.“

— Paul Simon
Context: I wanted to sing other types of songs that Simon and Garfunkel wouldn't do. "Mother and Child Reunion" for example, is not a song that you would have normally thought that Simon and Garfunkel would have done. It's possible that they might have. But it wouldn't have been the same, and I don't know if I would have been so inclined in that direction. So for me it was a chance to break out and gamble a little bit … The breakup had to do with a natural drifting apart as we got older and the separate lives that were more individual. We weren't so consumed with recording and performing. We had other activities … there was no great pressure to stay together other than money, which exerted very little influence upon us. … We didn't need the money. On the breakup of Simon and Garfunkel as a musical team. Interview with Jon Landau for Rolling Stone (1972); republished in The Rolling Stone Interviews: 1967-1980 (1989) edited by Peter Herbst, p. 210

„No I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away“

— Paul Simon
Context: No I would not give you false hope On this strange and mournful day But the mother and child reunion Is only a motion away, Oh, little darling of mine I can't for the life of me Remember a sadder day I know they say let it be But it just don't work out that way... Mother and Child Reunion

„I am walking up the face of the mountain. Counting every step I climb.“

— Paul Simon
Context: I am walking up the face of the mountain. Counting every step I climb. Remembering the names of the constellations. Forgotten is a long, long time. "That's Me"

„So you start with an impulse and go to what your ear likes.“

— Paul Simon
Context: I write from instinct, from inexplicable sparkle. I don't know why I'm writing what I'm writing. Usually, I sit and I let my hands wander on my guitar. And I sing anything. I play anything. And I wait till I come across a pleasing accident. Then I start to develop it. Once you take a piece of musical information, there are certain implications that it automatically contains — the implication of that phrase elongated, contracted, or inverted or in another time signature. So you start with an impulse and go to what your ear likes. Interview with Tony Schwartz in Playboy (February 1984) p. 166

„These are the days of miracle and wonder,
This is the long distance call“

— Paul Simon
Context: These are the days of miracle and wonder, This is the long distance call, The way the camera follows us in slo-mo, The way we look to us all, The way we look to a distant constellation That's dying in a corner of the sky, These are the days of miracle and wonder And don't cry, baby, don't cry, don't cry. The Boy In The Bubble
