Bridge Over Troubled Water – Simon & Garfunkel

The piano on this song is so beautiful, it almost sounds like a classical song.

I also admit, I like Garfunkel better than Simon (I know, I know I am in the minority). Listen to his voice in this song, its so perfect for this emotional song. He really rises to the occasion. And the way the song rises to a very emotional conclusion is so wonderful. It is so rare for a song to carry this much emotion.

According to wikipedia, Paul Simon regretted insisting that Art Garfunkel sing the song as a solo because “it focused attention on Garfunkel and relegated Simon to a backing position.” Well, I guess in the end Paul Simon won that battle.

And as always with S & G, the lyrics are beautiful!

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
