    A good one but not even Paul Simon's best.

    This makes me wonder about whoever made up the list.

    4. La Tortura (Shakira, 2005) : 8%

    Great touching lyrics, beautiful piano work, a bit overproduced, but the best thing about BOTW is Art Garfunkel's stunning vocal performance. What a gift he had. (He's still alive, of course... but I seriously doubt he could ever replicate THAT.)

    I'm a fan of his early work, especially Sounds of Silence but Simon reached his musical pinnacle with the Graceland album.

    Had tickets for Simon and Garfunkel back in 83. Last chance to see them and I never had. That was the night hurricane alicia came through. We were in the parking lot at the dome when they canceled the show. So we threw a hurricane party instead

    These list always get it wrong. No exception here

    Garth's "The Dance" would be my choice.

    I'm not much of a country fan, but that's a very nice one.
