  1. Interesting to compare this to the UK chart positions. Paul Simon did better in US during the late 70s/early 80s but after Graceland the UK chart was kinder and has featured singles not even listed here:

    You Can Call Me Al #4
    Boy In The Bubble #26
    Graceland #98
    Diamonds on The Soles of Her Shoes #77
    The Obvious Child #15
    Proof #89
    Something So Right (with Annie Lennox) #44
    Father & Daughter #31
    You Can Call Me Al (in 2011!) #96
