    Lyrics:
    I am just a poor boy
    Though my story's seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest
    When I left my home and my family
    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station
    Running scared,
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know
    Lie la lie, lie la la la lie lie
    Lie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
    Jesus loves you more than you will know.
    God bless you, please Mrs. Robinson.
    Heaven holds a place for those whopray,
    Hey, hey, hey
    Hey, hey, hey

    We'd like to know a little bit about you for our files
    We'd like to help you learn to help yourself.
    Look around you all you see are sympathetic eyes,
    Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.

    And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson,
    Jesus loves you more than you will know.
    God bless you, please, Mrs. Robinson.
    Heaven holds a place for those who pray,
    Hey, hey, hey

    Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

    4:52

    Studio Version

    Lyrics:

    When you're weary
    Feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes
    I will dry them all

    I'm on your side
    When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you

    I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Sail on Silver Girl,
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way
    See how they shine
    If you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

    Simon & Garfunkel - Cecilia

    2:55

    Cecilia is a song written by US musician Paul Simon. It was first recorded by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. When released as a single, it reached #4 in the US charts. The single did not chart in the UK, despite being released as the follow-up to Simon and Garfunkel's number one hit Bridge Over Troubled Water.

    The Cecilia of the title is generally interpreted as being a capricious lover, causing both anguish and jubilation to the singer. However, another interpretation[1] is that Cecilia might refer to St. Cecilia, patron saint of music in the Catholic tradition, and thus the song might refer to the frustration of fleeting inspiration in songwriting. St. Cecilia is mentioned in another Paul Simon song, The Coast (from his 1990 album The Rhythm of the Saints): A family of musicians took shelter for the night in the little harbor church of St. Cecilia.

    The song's recording is also quite funny. The Song's foundation was a percussion track in the house Paul was renting on Blue Jay Way in LA. Paul and Art slapped their thights, Eddie Simon thumped a piano bench and a friend strummed a guitar with its strings slackened to the point of atonailty. Roy Halee did the rest.

    A man walks down the street
    He says why am I soft in the middle now
    Why am I soft in the middle
    The rest of my life is so hard
    I need a photo-opportunity
    I want a shot at redemption
    Don't want to end up a cartoon
    In a cartoon graveyard
    Bonedigger Bonedigger
    Dogs in the moonlight
    Far away my well-lit door
    Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly
    Get these mutts away from me
    You know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty when you call me
    You can call me Al

    I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.

    I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
    Yes I would,
    If I only could,
    I surely would.

    CHORUS
    Away, I'd rather sail away
    Like a swan that's here and gone
    A man gets tied up to the ground
    He gives the world
    Its saddest sound,
    Its saddest sound.

    I'd rather be a forest than a street.
    Yes I would.
    If I could,
    I surely woud.

    I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
    Yes I would.
    If I only could,
    I surely would.

    The Sun is Burning - Simon & Garfunkel

    2:52

    A little music video project I did for history class! I'm not entirely happy with it so I might be making more, as it's not due for a few weeks and I managed to finish this one in hardly over a day.

    This song was originally written by Ian Campbell, and it was covered by S&G in 1964 on their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3AM. It's a beautifully haunting song, its happy melody belying a very dark message about the terror of atomic warfare.

    In this video I used it to show the terrible bombing of Hiroshima at the tail-end of the Second World War, which immediately killed 80,000 people and eventually tens of thousands more due to radiation exposure. Three days later, a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, instantly killing 40,000.

    Lyrics:

    The sun is burning in the sky
    Strands of clouds go slowly drifting by
    In the park the lazy bees
    Are droning in the flowers among the trees
    And the sun burns in the sky

    Now the sun is in the West
    Little kids go home to take their rest
    And the couples in the park
    Are holdin' hands and waitin' for the dark
    And the sun is in the West

    Now the sun is sinking low
    Children play and know it's time to go
    High above a spot appears
    A little blossom blooms and then draws near
    And the sun is sinking low

    Now the sun has come to Earth
    Shrouded in a mushroom cloud of death
    Death comes in a blinding flash
    Of hellish heat and leaves a smear of ash
    And the sun has come to Earth

    Now the sun has disappeared
    All is darkness, anger, pain and fear
    Twisted, sightless wrecks of men
    Go groping on their knees and cry in pain
    And the sun has disappeared

    Lyrics:

    Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
    Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
    Remember me to one who lives there.
    She once was a true love of mine.

    On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.
    Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.
    Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain
    Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

    Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
    Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
    Without no seams nor needle work,
    Then she'll be a true love of mine.

    On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves.
    Washes the grave with silvery tears.
    A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
    Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

    Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence 1966 live

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    Fools, said I, You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you
    But my words, like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed In the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, The words of the prophets are written
    on the subway walls And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    The mama pajama rolled out of bed
    And she ran to the police station
    When Ihe papa found out he began to shout
    And he started the investigation

    It's against the law
    It was against the law
    What the mama saw
    It was against the law

    The mama looked down and spit on the ground
    Everytime my name gets mentioned
    The papa said oy if I get that boy
    I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention
    Well I'm on my way
    I don't know where I'm going
    I'm on my way I'm taking my time
    But I don't know where
    Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
    See you, me and Julio

    See you, me and Julio
    Down by the schoolyard

    Simon & Garfunkel - A Hazy Shade Of Winter

    2:18

    A Hazy Shade of Winter is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by Simon & Garfunkel in 1966 for their 1968 album, Bookends (although it also appeared on their Live from New York City, 1967). It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the second most popular song on the album after Mrs. Robinson, which earlier reached #1.

    The lyrics evoke the passage of the seasons, but (as the title suggests) focusing on the gloominess of winter. The chorus of the song repeats:

    But look around,
    leaves are brown now
    And the sky
    is a hazy shade of winter

    Look around,
    leaves are brown
    There's a patch of snow on the ground.

    I'll take your part.
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around,
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.

    Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water Remastered

    Bridge Over Troubled Water

    Bridge Over Troubled Water, the fifth and final studio album by American folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel, was released 44 years ago today (26 January 1970). Following the duo's soundtrack for The Graduate, Art Garfunkel took an acting role in the film Catch-22, while Paul Simon worked on the songs, writing all tracks except one. With the help of producer Roy Halee, the album followed a similar musical pattern as their Bookends, partly abandoning their traditional style in favor of a more creative sound, combining rock, R&B, gospel, jazz, World music, pop and other genres. After filming Catch-22, Garfunkel returned and the duo recorded around 14 tracks, three of which were not featured in the album. The inclusion of a 12th track was long discussed but they eventually decided upon 11 songs. It was described as both their most effortless record and their most ambitious.

    Despite numerous accolades, the duo decided to split up, and parted company later in 1970; Garfunkel continued his film career, while Simon worked intensely with music. Both released solo albums in the following years. Bridge includes two of the duo's most critically and commercially acclaimed songs, Bridge Over Troubled Water and The Boxer, which were listed on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Both critically and commercially successful, the album topped the charts in over ten countries and received two Grammy Awards, plus four more for the title song. It sold around 25 million records and was ranked on several lists, including at number 51 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Bridge Over Troubled Water, the title song, was written by Paul Simon. The single was released on January 26, 1970, though it also appears on the live album Live 1969, released in 2008. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on February 28, 1970, and stayed at the top of the chart for six weeks. Bridge Over Troubled Water also topped the adult contemporary chart in the U.S. for six weeks. The single has sold 6 million copies worldwide.

    This song's recording process exposed many of the underlying tensions that eventually led to the breakup of the duo after the album's completion. Most notably, Paul Simon has repeatedly expressed regret over his insistence that Art Garfunkel sing his song as a solo, as it focused attention on Garfunkel and relegated Simon to a secondary position. Art Garfunkel initially did not want to sing lead vocal, feeling it was not right for him. He felt I should have done it, Paul Simon revealed to Rolling Stone in 1972.
    Garfunkel said that the moment when he performed it at a 1972 Madison Square Garden benefit concert, as part of a one-off reunion with Simon, was almost biblical.
    In performances on the 2003 Old Friends tour, Simon and Garfunkel took turns singing alternate verses of the vocal.

    It was ranked number 47 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    Simon wrote the song in the summer of 1969 while Garfunkel was in Mexico filming Catch-22.

    The song originally had two verses and different lyrics. Simon specifically wrote it for Garfunkel and knew it would be a piano song. The chorus lyrics were partly inspired by Claude Jeter's line I'll be your bridge over deep water if you trust in me, which Jeter sang with his group, the Swan Silvertones, in the 1958 song Mary Don't You Weep.

    Garfunkel reportedly liked Simon's falsetto on the demo and suggested that Simon sing. He and producer Roy Halee also thought the song needed three verses and a 'bigger' sound towards the end. Simon agreed and penned the final verse, though he felt it was less than fully cohesive with the earlier verses. The final verse was written about Simon's then-wife Peggy Harper, who had noticed her first gray hairs (Sail on, silvergirl). The musicians were Wrecking Crew members Hal Blaine, Larry Knechtel, Joe Osborn and Gary L. Coleman. Knechtel won a Grammy for his piano arrangement.

    Garfunkel's first two attempts to record the vocal failed. The first two verses were finally recorded in New York with the final verse recorded first, in Los Angeles. The majority of the song was recorded in Columbia Records in Hollywood, Ca. Part of the song was first heard by a national audience on November 30, 1969, when it was included in the soundtrack of a one-hour TV special by the duo aired by CBS called Songs of America. The music appeared in the background of a clip with John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Larry Knechtel spent four days working on the piano arrangement. Garfunkel came up with the intermediate piano chords between the verses while working with Knechtel.

    Lyrics:
    When you're weary
    Feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes
    I will dry them all

    I'm on your side
    When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you
    I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Sail on Silver Girl,
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way

    See how they shine
    If you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
