Comment:

Paul Simon isn't merely one of the most covered, but one of the most widely covered, artists of his —or, for that matter, any— generation. The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, gives "Bridge Over Troubled Water" a gospel-inflected (and GRAMMY®-garnering) reading that erupts like a pillar of fire into the sky. Peter Gabriel, no slouch of a songwriter himself, revisits Graceland's "The Boy In the Bubble" courtesy of a slow, haunting, acoustic reimagining. A pair of mid-'60s Simon & Garfunkel standards (Hazy Shade of Winter" and "Mrs. Robinson") get college-rock makeovers from The Bangles and The Lemonheads, respectively. And in a kinda unexpected twist, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra invites Paul Simon to cover himself in their salsa-fied take on "Late In the Evening/Tarde en la Noche." But that just scratches the surface; from Ray Charles to Willie Nelson, your favorite artists turn, time and time again, to Simon's songbook — a musical gift that just keeps on giving.
