When Simon & Garfunkel were friends in high school and formed a choir (Tom & Jerry). In 1957, the choir entered the American pop music charts. After graduating from high school, Simon was admitted to the English Department of Queens College of the City University of New York, while Garfunkel was studying at Columbia University not far away, and the two still cooperated from time to time. In 1964, the two signed a contract with Columbia Records and made their official debut under their real surnames Simon & Garfunkel.

The orchestra's famous songs such as "The Sound of Silence", "Scarborough Fair" , and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" have achieved success on the US singles charts. In 1967, he scored the famous Hollywood film "Graduate" and became an immortal classic.

After 1970, the two worked separately for personal development, but occasionally they sang together, and they each have some famous works. In 1990, the two were inducted into the American Rock and Roll Hall of Fame under the name of the orchestra. In 2003, they reunited for a tour and were awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Their concert at the Colosseum in Rome attracted 600,000 spectators.


Simon & Garfunkel 兩人在就讀高中時.素為好友 組成合唱團(Tom & Jerry)。1957年,該合唱團打入了美國流行音樂排行榜。高中畢業之後,Simon考進紐約市立大學皇后學院英文系,而Garfunkel 當時就讀於不遠的哥倫比亞大學,兩人仍然時有合作。1964年,兩人與哥倫比亞唱片簽署合約,以他們的真實姓氏 Simon & Garfunkel 正式出道。

樂團的名曲如《寂靜之聲》(The Sound of Silence)、《史卡波羅市集》(Scarborough Fair),《惡水上的大橋》(Bridge Over Troubled Water)於美國單曲排行榜取得成功。1967年為著名好萊塢電影《畢業生》配樂,成為不朽經典。

1970年以後,兩人分別作個人發展,但是偶爾也有一起演唱,而他們各自都有一些著名的作品。1990年,兩人以樂團的名義入選美國搖滾名人堂。2003年,他們又重新聚首舉行了一次巡迴演出,並被授予葛萊美終身成就獎。他們於羅馬競技場舉行的演唱會吸引了六十萬名觀眾.


Scarborough Fair is full of the romance of ancient love poems, and it also implies an anti- war spirit. These songs have not only well-written tunes, but even their lyrics have been appreciated and valued by the world, and have since become famous all over the world.

充滿古代情詩的浪漫,還隱含著反戰精神。這些歌曲,不但曲調寫得好,連歌詞亦被世人所欣賞及重視,從此名揚全球。




Bridge Over Troubled Water It is beautiful and timeless! And so touching... reaches the depths of our heart. Many people have discovered that this is a spiritually inspired song. It has comforted them and fell that God is with them in hard time!

它是美麗而永恆的! 感動和觸碰我們的心靈深處。許多人發現這是一首靈性啟發的歌曲。感到上帝與他們同在, 使他們苦難中得到安慰!



The Sound of Silence is a response to the sense of alienation between modern people and a reflection on human money worship.

乃是對現代人之間的疏離感的反響,與對人類拜金主義的省思.
