In honor of Paul Simon's new album 'Stranger to Stranger,' we asked our readers to select the best songs from his long solo career.


In the fall of 1962, a novelty song titled "The Lone Teen Ranger" credited to Jerry Landis reached Number 97 on the Billboard Hot 100 and then disappeared without a trace. It would be just about one of the most forgettable tunes to ever appear on the pop charts had its creator not reverted back to his birth name of Paul Simon and started penning some of the greatest songs of the 20th Century just a few years later. The early ones were cut with his childhood buddy Art Garfunkel, but in 1972 Paul Simon began a solo career that continues to this day. In honor of his upcoming 75th birthday and new album Stranger to Stranger, we asked our readers to pick the best songs from his solo career. Click through to see the results. Sadly, "The Lone Teen Ranger" didn't get any votes.
