Fifty ways to leave your lover

First line:
The problem is all inside your head, she said to me
author of text

It can sometimes be difficult to find songs which are ripe for arranging. We need songs which won’t sound awkward when translated to voices alone, and which will stand the test of time many years hence. Paul Simon is a songwriter whose work is almost invariably ripe, and Fifty ways to leave your lover is no exception. It was No 1 in the US Charts when it came out in 1975, and has never lost its colour since. Our arrangement, by Andrew Pryce Jackman was recorded by The King’s Singers in 1993 on the studio album Good Vibrations, but hasn’t been recorded since, and never with the live, acoustic sound of our The Library releases.
