Definition of a Garfunkel

Garfunkel

noun

  • the more outgoing person in a pair. Origin: refers to folk-rock 1960s duo Simon and Garfunkel. Art Garfunkel, who did not write or play an instrument, arguably was the better singer of the two. He was also more personable/talkative. In a way, the "sidekick" of Simon. See also Simon.
