* HeterosexualLifePartners: This is most notably expressed in "The Only Living Boy in New York" which is basically about Paul missing Art (the "Tom" in the song; in the early days when they performed as "Tom and Jerry," Art was "Tom") when the latter went to Mexico to film ''Literature/CatchTwentyTwo''.

Music/PaulSimon and Art Garfunkel first came together in 1957 under the name Tom and Jerry, but rose to fame as '''Simon & Garfunkel''' almost ten years later, mostly due to their hit "The Sound Of Silence" (1965). Both men were childhood friends growing up in Queens, [[BigApplesauce New York]] a few blocks away from each other.

* RepurposedPopSong: "The Sounds of Silence" was used during the film adaptation of ''Film/{{Watchmen}}''. It is also the opening song for ''TheGraduate'', which also uses "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" several times. ** "At the Zoo" was used for advertisements for the Bronx Zoo and the San Francisco Zoo in the late 1970s, though this may overlap with [[IsntItIronic Isn't It Ironic]] due to the song being more of an allegory for human nature. However, PaulSimon himself later re-purposed the song in the form of [[http://www.amazon.com/AT-ZOO-Books-Young-Readers/dp/0385417713 a children's book with the same title]].

The duo split up following the release of their album ''Music/BridgeOverTroubledWater'' in 1970. Simon went on to experience a BreakupBreakout and a successful solo career, while Garfunkel is still best known for his efforts with the duo, although he's also known for singing the ThemeSong of ''Film/WatershipDown'' and for his acting roles in such films as ''Film/CatchTwentyTwo'', ''Carnal Knowledge'', and ''Film/BadTiming'' (while Paul Simon appeared in ''Film/AnnieHall'' and ''Film/OneTrickPony''. They have reunited (and broken up again) several times over the years. Most famously, they came together for a 1981 free concert in Central Park, which drew a crowd of over half a million.
