YMMV: Paul Simon
- Ear Worm: many. "Mother and Child Reunion," "Kodachrome," "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard," "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover," and "You Can Call Me Al" are good examples.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The chorus of "Kodachrome" is "Don't take my Kodachrome away!". As of 2009, that's exactly what happened, with the discontinuation of Kodachrome slide film.
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Graceland was revolutionary in the 80's because a musician had never taken modern (at the time at least) pop and fused with world and African tribal music. Many artists have done this since, leaving first-time listeners wondering what the big deal is.
- True Art: The "comeback" albums of the 1990s.
