"50 Ways to Leave Your Lover", released in 1975, provided Paul Simon with his first US No1 since his split with Art Garfunkel five years earlier. The lyrics came to Simon as he awoke one morning in his Central Park apartment. "The opening words just popped into my mind," he told author Timothy White. "'The problem is all inside your head, she said to me...'. That was the first thing I thought of." Throwing back the sheets, the songwriter set about composing, with the help of a Rhythm Ace drum machine, building his verses to tell a story of deception and divorce. Steve Gadd's drum groove has stood the test of time and has earned the status of legendary.
