Great Things About Simon & Garfunkel’s Concert in Central Park, September 19, 1981, in no particular order:

  • Artie’s reaction to the audience, from his excited “Woah!” upon seeing them to asking them if they were cold (how sweet is that!?), he was apparently as thrilled with the audience as they were with him.
  • Paul’s thank you speech that sounded so innocent and yet had some very sarcastic little jokes, and Art’s amused reaction throughout.
  • Artie saying, “I’m sooo in the mood” and Paul’s turning to the band to shout, “Hit it! 'In the Mood'!”
  • April Come She Will - Especially so soon after Laurie Bird’s death. Heartbreaking.
  • Having The Sound of Silence as an encore.  Very odd choice of song placement, and completely magical. 
  • The Boxer - Paul’s little glance at Art, and Artie’s little half-hugging Paul  immediately after the line “After changes upon changes we are more or less the same”.  Overwhelmingly touching moment.  I don’t know how much to believe Paul’s comment during the press conference that he couldn’t get along with Artie… or Artie’s reaction to that comment, but I want to believe that it was mostly for show and laughs, like The Breakup.
