Song She Inspired: Paul Simon - "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" (1975)
Highest Position on the Billboard Hot 100: 1

Simon wrote this song shortly after leaving his wife, Peggy Harper, and taking up with Fisher. He and Fisher were together for seven turbulent years, got married in 1983, and then divorced less than a year later (but started seeing each other again afterward). Too much leaving-or not enough?
