Villagers: Five Essential Paul Simon Songs

As fate would have it, Villagers' Conor O'Brien's new album, The Art of Pretending to Swim, comes out the very week that Paul Simon plays his final live shows before retiring from touring.  O'Brien, who deeply admires Simon and saw the "Homeward Bound - The Farewell Tour" in Amsterdam, writes about his "Five Essential Paul Simon Songs" for FUV.
