Just bought their soundtrack to the movie "The Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman. "The Sound of Silence" is one of my all time favorite tunes.Tank Engine said:29. Simon and Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
The remaining artists on my have all been at least heavily influenced by folk music. When I was growing up, we didn't have a large amount of recorded music (at least by my present standards, some early Beatles, folk and Abba). On long car journeys when “The Boxer” came on, we'd start singing in raucous harmony. In my teenage years, Simon and Garfunkel became about the only thing that my parents listened to that I could bear. Under the lilting melodies and harmonies, there often lay the political radicalism of the 60s (e.g. their version of Silent Night from this album which I posted recently). “For Emily ...” is just a straightforward beautiful ballad full of longing.
