it was late in the evening, and all the music’s seeping through

We listened to a lot of Simon and Garfunkel on the way back from San Francisco, and as a result I’ve had S&G tunes floating around in my head all day and have been attempting to learn The Boxer on guitar. Lauren and I were discussing our favorite Simon and Garfunkel songs and the first one that came to mind was The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy). It makes me so happy…

Got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morningtime drop all its petals on me…
Life, I love you,
All is groovy

However, I’ve since listened to my collection a couple times and have realized there are several more that I absolutely love, like The Only Living Boy in New York and Homeward Bound, plus Paul Simon’s solo songs Late in the Evening and Still Crazy After All These Years, and Art Garfunkel’s cover of Bright Eyes. THEY ARE JUST AMAZING.

A couple videos to prove my point:

Now isn’t this just precious, in their turtlenecks and everything! :D I think Paul Simon is even wearing some love beads:

A couple notes on the following video:
1) Cute intro. Artie!
2) Speaking of which, Artie does not appear happy at all to be there.
3) I love that Paul Simon standing is as tall as Art Garfunkel sitting.
4) Why must it cut out before the last word???

Also, compare that audience with this one:

Man now I want to go to New York even more.

Now the years are rolling by me, they are rockin evenly
I am older than I once was, and younger than I’ll be, thats not unusual
No it isn’t strange, after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same
After changes, we are more or less the same.
