Rick & Jilda

Singer Songwriters

Singer Songwriter CD Winner

The quiz had a couple of curves. The last question, "Who was Paul Simon's songwriting partner in the 1960s?" Most of you responded Art Garfunkel. Paul Simon wrote the music and lyrics alone, but Garfunkel worked out the harmonies. When I wrote the question, I though "D" None of the above was the correct answer, but when I Googled the question(after I posted the quiz), the top hits gave Garfunkel credit as a co-writer because of his role in working out the harmonies. So,

Mitch Emmons was the first person I can identify that answered the questions correctly. If the person who responded at 6:58 a.m. on Wednesday would send me a Facebook message, I will send them a CD too.

Watch for the next songwriter quiz over the next few days.
