Bridge Over Troubled Water | Simon and Garfunkel

Many of my posts about the USA are focused upon the bits I don't like, ironic as those bits tend to be related to consumerism and capitalism, which arose in my corner of the world. Despite 'problems' (which we all have), when I go to my book and music collections, I'm reminded of how great US culture can be. Thanks, America, for Simon and Garfunkel to help me through the day ❤ 🇺🇸

GingerAntics We‘ve produced some really good musicians and books, and then we‘ve also produced some horrible musicians and books. I suppose that‘s life, though. 9mo
Bookwomble @GingerAntics I'm giving thanks for the really good ones 😁 9mo
GingerAntics You and me both. The book I‘m reading now is really explaining where we‘ve gone wrong with some aspects of consumerism. You have to hold on to the good stuff or the bad stuff could drive you mad. 9mo

Weaponxgirl I love them 😍 America has given me so much of my favourite music, I think you‘d like the documentary on John lee hooker on iplayer atm. Found out some interesting stuff 9mo
Bookwomble @arubabookwoman Mine, too ❤ I can (and sometimes do) listen to Simon and Garfunkel all day 😊🎶 9mo
Bookwomble @Weaponxgirl Me, too. Lots of my regular play artists are from the US of A 🇺🇸👍🏻 9mo
Bookwomble @Weaponxgirl I'll try to track down that JLH program. I've got one to watch on Netflix about Robert Johnson, too. 9mo
Weaponxgirl @Bookwomble oohhh, didn‘t know there was one about him on Netflix. Thanks! 9mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #Day22 #BridgeOverTroubledWater A day late but not a dollar short! This is one of my favorite ballads from the 70s, it‘s definitely a heart-tugger.The irony of this song though, is that the two men singing it were troubled waters themselves. From the start they had a rocky relationship, full of mistrust & jealousy,they ended their partnership just as they were gaining success. Both have since had solo careers & reunited for tours.

gradcat But alas, it seems Garfunkel didn‘t experience the success that Simon has, and thanks really too bad, because his voice is beautiful. 10mo
Lizpixie @gradcat that is true, some of my favorite verses in this song were sung by Art🎵 10mo
Crazeedi I saw them in the 70s at the Syria mosque in Pittsburgh 10mo

gradcat @Crazeedi I thought you didn‘t have a “wild” 70s—at least you went to concerts! Those could get pretty wild back in the day! 😂 (edited) 10mo
Crazeedi @gradcat true, I did get away occasionally 😉🙄 10mo
Cinfhen How‘s my birthday girl feeling???? 10mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen still kicking, just feebly!🥴 Can‘t quite get rid of the headaches plus a head cold. Yay. In other news, my youngest has just been approved for a house so she‘s moving out next weekend. So Hubs & I are now empty nesters, which means I‘m bursting into tears all the time! Have all yours left? If so, how did you handle it?👨‍👩‍👧 10mo
Cinfhen I still have my youngest at home, he‘ll be a senior in HS next year. So I‘m not quite there yet, but even with only one home I burst into tears 😭 some days it‘s happy tears but some days I miss the busy full house. Thank God, I like my husband 😜He keeps me laughing and totally gets me. Just think less laundry, cooking and emptying the garbage 😘 10mo

“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”

Lyrics of a favorite song came to mind for #Silence in the #QuotsyDec17 challenge.

lauralovesbooks1 I love this song! 2y
Cortg I remember, 16, listening to Simon & Garfunkel with a friend/neighbor all...the...time. He cut a Charlie Brown Christmas tree from the woods behind his house for his room and decorated it with Simon & Garfunkel stuff. He also got a car for Christmas (his dad was a VP for Chrysler) and we found our freedom that year! He‘s gone off the radar and I think of him often. Thanks for the Christmas memory! We always spent Christmas Eve with his family. (edited) 2y
TK-421 I love Simon & Garfunkel! This song is one of my all time favourites ❤️ 2y
Jess_Read_This @Cortg Oh wow. What a great story and memory. Your friend sounds like such an interesting guy! I‘m so happy to help revive a neat Christmas memory. Sorry for my delay in responding, I took a few days off from the phone apps to spend with family and try to unwind in the holiday chaos! Lol! 2y
