You know what I love about Simon and Garfunkel? Their songs never get old. In fact, the more I listen to any given S&G song, the more I love it. It doesn’t matter if it’s one of the more obscure ones (Keep the Customer Satisfied!!) or one that everyone knows…for example, today while driving to work I had Sounds of Silence on repeat and switched off between vocal parts each time because I just couldn’t get enough of the amazing harmonies (don’t worry, on Wednesdays I don’t carpool, haha). I love that there can be just two voices and a guitar and still so much to listen to.
And now, video time! For some reason, I always assume that videos taken from the crowd are not going to be worth watching. But that’s not the case with this one, from New Zealand earlier this summer. Right at the end of the second verse, Paul Simon’s mic goes out, and the audience takes over for the chorus (love the accent from the guy holding the camera, haha :) …awesome.
I also hardly ever watch recent videos of bands I like, but I have to keep reminding myself that the Simon and Garfunkel I’m going to see aren’t 25 years old anymore, haha. However, these videos give me faith that they’ll be just as amazing – maybe even more so – than 40 years ago. AHHHH I CAN’T WAIT!!
