Trivia Quesiton: Who recorded their first song under the names Tom and Jerry?

Hall & Oates
The Everly Brothers
Simon & Garfunkle

 

The answer is: Simon & Garfunkle

Answer: Long before they were Simon and Garfunkel, the famous folk duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel performed under the name of “Tom and Jerry”. It was feared that their given names were “too ethnic-sounding” to play in Middle America, so the duo assumed the name of “Tom and Jerry” – a reference to the cartoon series. Garfunkel named himself Tom Graph, a reference to his interest in mathematics, and Simon christened himself “Jerry Landis,” after the surname of then-girlfriend Sue Landis.
