As purveyor of all things 50, it would be impossible to move beyond 1975 without the mention of Paul Simon’s, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.
It is a catchy tune; one that sticks with you for hours afterwards and one with which you cannot help singing.
My single criticism (with the caveat that I am not a professional music critic) is that in my humble opinion, the song construction is backwards.
The verses provide the logical space in which to detail “50 Ways” while the other woman might have delivered a chorus. Consequently, Simon only managed five ways. I feel ripped off.
