‘You Can Call Me Al’, ‘Graceland’, ‘Cecilia’, ‘Mrs. Robinson’. Everyone has their favourite Paul Simon/Simon & Garfunkel song.
It just so happens that ALL of our favourites are on The Ultimate Collection from Paul Simon, which shot to the Number 1 spot on the album chart this week (is that the sound of champagne popping we hear?!).
