The song was originally written by Paul Simon, and it took almost a year to complete. The instant classic is complex but relatable, heavy but spellbinding. It didn’t take long for it to hit the airwaves.

By the spring of 1965 the tune was being played from radio stations in Boston, Massachusetts, and throughout Florida. Music lovers across the eastern seaboard adored the powerful melody. Finally, by January 1, 1966, the song was ranked Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
