Saturday Song: Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel

When I was eight years old, I got an eight-track player for Christmas, along with a few tapes of course. One of these was Simon and Garfunkel’s album Bridge Over Troubled Water which contains such memorable songs as “El Condor Pasa,” “The Boxer,” and “Sicilia.” Here’s the title track from that album. Have a great day.

  1. I sure remember that song. Unfortunately, I was in Jericho Hill School for the Deaf and Blind at the time. I used to hang out in the last corner of undeveloped land on the campus. That song reminds me of my wanderings in that place. I also remember that somebody tossed an old table radio there and I took it apart. I also got in trouble for taking a few liquor bottles from there by one supervisor.
