Simon and Garfunkel reunite, not for the money, but for Arts sake

That's pretty good!
Paul Simon, as I have said an nauseam elsewhere, is, in my opinion (which is the only one that counts) the greatest songwriter ever.
I went to see S&G when they played Hyde Park a few years ago, and I was amazed that Art could still get the high notes, particularly the one at the end of Bridge. Someone suggested that he used electronic things, but the video screen showed it being played in the original key of Eb, which would have meant that the keyboard and guitars would have had to have been detuned to something like D or even C, and then pitch shifted up again, along with Art's voice, to get back to the orignial key of Eb. This is so convoluted that he must still be singing in Eb, and hitting that top G, despite his smoking habit and his other habit of folding his arms across his chest.
Anyway, I like them!
I do too, like them, that is, as well as PS solo.
