Simon And Garfunkel.

I heard them in the sixties,

These two young Americans

Singing their songs so well,

Songs that are still known,

Still well-known even now

Over fifty years later.

I have listened to them,

Sang them,

And enjoyed them all my life.

Such a wonderful sound

Made for us all,

By Simon and Garfunkel.

      I wanted to join them in my 'singing', but they sent me a postcard saying 'Wish you woz not here!' lol.
      Some 'proper' music here, not trashy!

      • Goldfinch60

        Thank you Orchi.
        Yes they sound so good.


      • Doggerel Dave

        Oh the memories you bring back:
        Each when ‘Those were the days my friend’
        Then sometimes I see through the crack
        And hope once more the world can mend.

        • Goldfinch60

          I do hope the world will mend and the Bridge over Troubled Waters will fix it all.


        • Fay Slimm.

          Wonderful duo -- the song you chose has ever been a favourite of those who love good music and words.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Fay.
            Yes it is a special song, the Community Choir that I am in came and sang this song at Joyce's funeral.


          • crypticbard

            That is probably the most recognisable of the their work. Awesome tribute.

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Rik, I think I know nearly all of their songs, they are terrific.

              Each of us an Island. Each island brought together to make a whole.

              This pair held us all from homeward bound to troubled waters and beyond. Apart their magic continues.

              • Goldfinch60

                So very true d a, their magic certainly does continue.
