Simon & Garfunkel's hit, Cecilia, sparked speculation about the song's mystery woman, who inspired the duo to create it.
Paul Frederic Simon and Art Garfunkel were at the peak of their popularity, coming off of three hit records. They traded on their tight harmonies and Simon's intricate fingerstyle guitar playing, but it was their songs that propelled them forward.
Paul Simon wrote the song "St. Cecilia" to express his struggle and the fleeting nature of inspiration, as well as his sexual innuendo.
Cecilia was a hit in 1970, reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Cash Box Top 100.
