about

A great old Simon & Garfunkel song, it doesn't seem to get the same amount of love as songs like Bridge Over Troubled Water and Sound of Silence, but I think it's just as, if not more, effective of a song. It excels invoking the atmostphere of the time and place about which it is written. I've never been to New York at all, but I feel like I'm in young Paul's shoes walking down the streets through the foggy twilight, listening to the sounds of life emanating from the many shops and cafes all around. I couldn't change much about this song, but I tried to at least completely revamp the guitar part, make it my own.
