"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.

Finally, I requested this song a long while ago, we got a couple before this classic, but gladly this is finally done! Now hopefully Diamond on the soles of her shoes & or You can call me al. Paul Simon was never really well represented in Rock Band outside of Simon & Garfunkel.

I never thought I would be able to play this on RB. Thanks so much for this!!!

Thank you!!!!!

Feedback on the vocals is appreciated. Paul is unpredictable and the harmonies were hell to discern.
