Prelude to The Top 500 Songs of the Rock Era*: "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" by Paul Simon

This #1 song from 1976 was the only solo #1 of Paul Simon's career.  It used to be that reaching #1 would get you in The Top 500*.  But, as time has passed, it's tougher and tougher to get in that elite list.  Not only does the list of #1 songs continue to grow, but ome songs that did not reach #1 are so strong in sales and airplay and faced such great competition that they are better than some #1's of the Rock Era.

This song featured Phoebe Snow and Valerie Simpson on backing vocals--"50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"...
