2. Simon and Garfunkel: October 18th, 1975
SNL's second episode featured a historic reunion, the first TV appearance by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel since their 1970 breakup, and the first time they had shared the same stage in three years. The duo's performances of "The Boxer," Scarborough Fair" and their new single "My Little Town" were striking in their intimacy, at once raw, awkward and friendly. "So, you've come crawling back," Simon taunted. In response, Garfunkel deadpanned: "It's very nice of you to invite me on your show."
