One mark of a good song is that it makes Billboard's top 10 list. An even greater indicator is its staying power; whether it is remembered decades after it was a hit. Perhaps the highest accolade is whether the artist influences other musicians. All of these standards were met by the singing duo the Everly Brothers, one of whom, Phil, has died days shy of his 75th birthday. At age 16 I was a disc jockey for a suburban Washington, D.C., radio station. I hosted a weekend music program called "The Top Fifty Show.

IT'S NOT ONLY the legion of baby boomers who never fell out of love with folk crooners Simon and Garfunkel. For their children, captive home audiences for furniture-size hi-fis also playing the likes of Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and Judy Collins, that color of their music is the clarion of first memories. Spare, coordinated, harmonic. Melody over rhythm, perfect for dancing one of those otherworldly child-dances in a shaft of afternoon sunlight, staying out of mom's way so she can have a quiet hour.

NOSTALGIA REIGNED supreme at the recent Art Garfunkel concert at Beth Tfiloh on Old Court Road. According to Rabbi Michael Meyerstein, "It was fuzzy, feel-good music, and most people seemed to enjoy it."Certainly the Garfunkel groupies who attended in their flower-child garb, armed with old record albums, were not disappointed. The music and the large, vinyl, shiny, neon-colored flowers decorated with the faces of Beth Tfiloh school students were pure '60s.And it seemed everyone was on their feet when Garfunkel sang old favorites "Sounds of Silence," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Mrs.

BEAUTIFUL." "Revolting." "Interesting."It hasn't even arrived on Baltimore-area newsstands in its demure, white wrapper designed to hide all of Demi Moore except her face. But thanks to publicity, enough has been seen of August's Vanity Fair magazine cover -- and of naked and pregnant Moore -- to spark praise and condemnation."I've been pregnant three times and the look isn't appealing to me at all. Disgusting," says Joan Williams of Catonsville while waiting for a boat at the Inner Harbor.

The understated 23-year-old singer and pianist, who was virtually unknown this time last year, won five major honors last night at the 45th annual Grammy Awards: Album of the Year and Pop Vocal Album for Come Away With Me; Best New Artist; and Record of the Year and Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Don't Know Why." The album also garnered prizes for its engineers, producers and Jesse Harris, who wrote the Song of the Year, "Don't Know Why." They were the 9/11 Grammys.

Over the years, the two have said some nasty things to one another and stormed out of rooms, slamming doors and fuming. After becoming the most successful folk-pop duo of the 1960s, the guys abruptly went their separate ways - at times, not speaking to each other for months. Even years. But Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel are still, as the title of their 1968 classic says, "old friends." Their bumpy relationship has endured half a century. "I don't resent anything about Paul Simon," says Garfunkel, who's calling from a New York City hotel suite.

Reprinted from late editions of yesterday's Sun. WASHINGTON - They have been friends for half a century. Together, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel have created gorgeous music. Simon has written detailed lyrics that tell indelible stories about growing up, growing old, dissolutions and the many facets of love. The pair has broken up and reunited several times over the years. But at Sunday night's sold-out show at MCI Center, Simon and Garfunkel celebrated their legendary career with a brisk, no-frills rundown of their greatest hits.

Simon has written detailed lyrics that tell indelible stories about growing up, growing old, dissolutions and the many facets of love. The pair has broken up and reunited several times over the years. But at last night's sold-out show at MCI Center, Simon and Garfunkel celebrated their legendary career with a brisk, no-frills rundown of their greatest hits. No, the harmonies aren't as gossamer-light as they used to be. The same voices that rose like mist in the 1960s are a little creaky these days -- particularly on the uptempo cuts, during which the stellar seven-piece band outshone (and almost overpowered)

What is the measure of a man's career? A man, say, like Paul Simon?An obvious answer would be to look at his work and see what sort of picture it makes when it has all been fitted together. And that, as any curator will tell you, is no walk in the park.Imagine, then, how tough it must be when the person assembling that retrospective is the artist himself. In addition to the dirty job of deciding what goes and what stays, he must also contend with the potentially prickly issue of artistic identity.

The Queen led me to them. Aretha Franklin's music is as much a part of my life as soap and water. So it's through her eclectic song selections that I've discovered several heroes of pop and the blues. Her take on "River's Invitation" introduced me to Percy Mayfield. I found the Beatles through her funky, lowdown rendition of "Eleanor Rigby." And after being lifted countless times by her gospel-fried version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (arguably the best performance of the song), I wanted to know more about Simon & Garfunkel.
