Hi Dan,  My colleague James Bennighof has published a book: The Words and Music of Paul Simon (Praeger, 2007).  Hope this helps.

Greetings everyone,

I'm interested in doing some analysis of the music of Paul Simon, with particular emphasis on the evolution of his compositional style over time.  First, does anyone know of any theoretical analysis of his music that has been done, or any bibliographic suggestions (particularly of sources from 2000 or later)?  Second, has anyone done theoretical analysis of pop music that can offer suggestions on methodology?  I appreciate it!
