3491. Paul Simon - Slip Slidin' Away

From: Greatest Hits, Etc.; Year: 1977; Genre: Folk Rock/Soft Rock
Got myself in the mood for something from Paul Simon; since this is one of my favourite songs from Paul Simon's solo work I'm surprised it took this long to pick it.
Slip Slidin' Away, whilst being rather mellow, the polyphonic arrangement is something to behold if you listen to everything going on. The Oak Ridge Boys providing the backing vocals really helped to make that wall of sound so perfect, especially in the bass end of the vocals.

Hear Slip Slidin' Away on YouTube.
