The folk-rock duo Simon & Garfunkel and the Steve McQueen Western series Wanted Dead or Alive don’t seem to have much in common at first. But look a little closer and commonalities start to show through.

Both deal with themes of justice, betrayal and a certain affinity for silence — and what it may or may not sound like.

Here are 20 different titles. Can you tell which ones are songs by Simon & Garfunkel and which ones are episodes of Wanted Dead or Alive?

I think some of the Wanted Dead Or Alive episode titles would make great Simon & Garfunkel songs! 😜

It is a cut from the 'Bookends" album. Give it a listen sometime out on the Youtube. It has a nice melody, finger-snap rhythm, and the lyrics are playful and open to interpretation.

"Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake
Floatin' in my bowl takin' movies,
Relaxin' awhile, livin' in style,
Talkin' to a raisin who 'caisson'ly plays L.A.,
Casually glancing at his toupee."

Simon says-Stand on 1 foot! Why? Because I don't have two legs to stand on this quiz. I Funkeled it 15 out of 20 with The Sound Of Misery .
