Paul Simon

What religion does Paul Simon singer songwriter practice?

AnswerI am not sure what he practices now but he is Jewish from origin and went to school with Art Garfunkel who is also Jewish by origin

**************************************************************

Its pretty clear that he is non - religious (agnostic or atheist) and definitely does not follow any organised religion now...

Take a look at his lyrics from 'How can you live in the Northeast' from his last album Surprise (2006) for example :-

How can you be a Christian?

How can you be a Jew?

How can you be a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu?

How can you?

Weak as the winter sun, we enter life on earth.

Names and religion come just after date of birth.

Then everybody gets a tongue to speak, and everyone hears an inner voice.

A day at the end of the week to wonder and rejoice.

If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

In another song, appropriately titled 'I don't believe' from the same album comes the lines:-

I don't believe we were born to be sheep in a flock

To pantomime prayers with the hands of a clock

And another song 'Wartime Prayers' has the line:-

People hungry for the voice of God

Hear lunatics and liars

Paul Simon lyrics are sometimes obscure, but I think all these lyrics add up to as unequivocal statement as he can get regarding his disbelief.

What inspired paul Simon?

When Simon moved to England in 1964 he met Kathleen Mary "Kathy" Chitty (born 1947) on 12 April 1964 at the very first English folk club he played, the Railway Inn Folk Club in Brentwood, Essex, where Chitty was working part-time selling tickets. She was 17, he was 22 and they fell in love. Later that year they visited the US together, touring around mainly by bus. Kathy returned to England on her own with Simon returning to her some weeks later. When Simon returned to the US with the growing success of "The Sound of Silence" Kathy (who was quite shy) wanted no part of the success and fame that awaited Simon and they split up. She is mentioned by name in at least two of his songs: "Kathy's Song" and "America," and is referred to in "Homeward Bound" and "The Late Great Johnny Ace." There is a photo of Simon and Kathy on the cover of The Paul Simon Song Book.

Simon has been married three times, first to Peggy Harper in late autumn 1969. They had a son, Harper Simon, in 1972 and divorced in 1975. The song "Train in the Distance," from Simon's 1983 album, is about this relationship. Simon's 1972 song "Run That Body Down," from his debut solo album, casually mentions both himself and his then-wife ("Peg") by name.

His second marriage, from 1983 to 1984, was to actress and author Carrie Fisher to whom he proposed after a New York Yankees game.(The song "Hearts and Bones" was written about this relationship. The song "Graceland" is also thought to be about seeking solace from the end of this relationship by taking a road trip). A year after divorcing, Simon and Fisher resumed their relationship for several years.

He married folk singer Edie Brickell on May 30, 1992. They have three children together, Adrian, Lulu, and Gabriel.

How do you get a boy to like a 190 lbs girl?

You can't; the 190 lb. girl can only be herself. If a certain boy doesn't like her, another one will later on--so long as the girl is happy and confident in her body. Patience.
