    Some critics find their lyrics pretentious and wordy.
    They bickered constantly about money and artistic matters.
    Garfunkel resented Simon because he felt Simon took all the credit.
    Simon resented Garfunkel because Garfunkel didn’t write any of the songs.
    Simon was cold and remote in live performance.
    Garfunkel always kept one hand in his pocket while singing (the secret to his high notes?).
    After breaking up, they barely spoke to each other for decades.
    When they reunited in 2003, some said it was just for the money.
    They both aged badly (especially Simon).
    They were childhood friends who became hugely successful together.
    They were known for their exquisite harmonies and vocal blend.
    They had many, many hit songs.
    Their music was used on the soundtrack for the classic film ‘The Graduate.’
    They were one of the most successful musical duos in history.
    They eventually buried the hatchet for a reunion tour (2003-2004).
