A quirky bit of S&G trivia


Love obscure stuff like this.  Pretty classic Paul Simon move. 
"Fakin' It" was one of Simon's and Garfunkel's single releases in 1967. Its B-side was "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies," the duo's only non-LP track which made its album debut on the Old Friends CD box set in 1997.
The running time of the song was actually 3 minutes and 14 seconds. Radio stations at the time resisted playing songs lasting longer than three minutes, so Paul Simon had the time "faked" to read 2:74 on the label.
