6 Awesome Things Paul Simon Did On SNL

Paul Simon was on Saturday Night Live a lot in the past 30 years. He sang, acted, and dressed like a turkey.

1. Remembering everybody he’s ever interacted with–except Garfunkel.

Celebrities tend to forget their fans, but not Paul Simon. He forgets Art Garfunkel.

2. Performing with George Harrison.

When a Beatle and a boy who attended Queens college get together and play “Homeward Bound” and “Here Comes The Sun” it has to be great.

3. Dressing as a turkey and singing “Still Crazy After All These Years.”

Not every SNL guest was willing to cooperate with the writers, but dressing like a turkey while singing about an old lover was no problem for the guy who enjoyed personifying animals.

4. Singing “Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes” with Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

The first minute of this performance is A cappella and the audience is completely silent, letting Simon and Ladysmith Black Mambazo sing about a crazy woman with crazy shoes.

5. Performing after September 11th.

With an American flag behind him and an FDNY hat on his head, Paul Simon plays “The Boxer.” He sings it to the the police officers and firemen on stage who, only weeks prior, saw the the Twin Towers fall. This is one of Simon’s most important performances of his career.

6. Welcoming new members into the Five-Timers Club.

Justin Timberlake:”Mr. Simon the honor is mine.”

Paul Simon:”I think it is.”
