The Top Three Paul Simon-as-Back-up-Singer Recordings

#3 "You Can Call Me Al,"  Graceland,  with Chevy Chase
     (Okay, it's only in the video that he's not the LEAD singer, but so what?)

#2 "Written on the Subway Wall/Little Star,"  Yo Frankie, with Dion
(Simon's appearance here is quite appropriate since Dion's song probably owes not a little to Simon's "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls" from "Sounds of Silence.)"

and the #1 Paul-Simon-as-a-Back-Up-Singer recording is

"The Blues," Trouble in Paradise, with Randy Newman
(Randy and Paul making light of Simon's at times dour persona!)
