Paul Frederic Simon born October 13, 1941 in Newark, New Jersey is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He first gained world-wide recognition as the writing talent behind the popular American folk-rock duo Simon & Garfunkel formed with fellow musician Art Garfunkel. When Simon & Garfunkel split in 1970, Simon quickly began his solo career with the release of the self-titled album, Paul Simon. The lead single off of Paul Simons album Graceland, You Can Call Me Al was a hit in the UK in September 1986. In the US, the song originally found only moderate success, peaking at 44 the same month.

Then finally something clicked, I guess I actually listened to the verses instead of just the chorus, and I finally heard it in the context of the album. Its clearly you can call me al
