#Quote
1 [on recording 'Fifty Ways to Leave Your Love] We had been working on that song for a while and the chorus part fell into place easily, but the first part wasn't really feeling the way it should, and we tried a few different things. A lot of times I would stay in the drum booth and Paul Simon and Phil Ramone were discussing what they wanted to do, and I practiced different things. I was practicing a little military beat and Phil heard it and thought we should try it for the first part of the song. We just sort of stumbled on it by chance.
