Paul Simon I really like this. I know Chevy can be kind of a douch but Paul plays the perfect straight man.

Neither is awesome. I'd like to retain that particular word for truly jaw-dropping and epoch shattering things.  Billy Joel is OK, and Paul Simon is very good, especially with Art Garfunkel.

But not awesome.

Yeah, I know "language changes" and "reflect usage", but the abuse of awesome is limiting our vocabulary and ability to communicate. It should be used sparingly.

"Everything is awesome"  ;D

In an age where Millennials proclaim even minor events as "the best day eva" then calling both Joel and Simon awesome is justified.

I actually think they are both awesome (in it's informal definition)
