    By 1970, Simon and Garfunkel weren't getting along, and Art Garfunkel was starting to pursue other interests, like acting.

    Art was in Mexico for months, filming "Catch 22," while Paul Simon (who was ready to get to work on a new album) was left waiting in New York.

    Garfunkel himself has always said that this song sounds like it's saying, "Where ARE you, Artie?"
