Simon & Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water

My introduction to Simon & Garfunkel was an unconventional one. It was during the movie “Old School” and Will Ferrell’s character gets a horse tranquillizer to the neck and eventually falls into the swimming pool. As he’s drowning the most beautiful song starts to play….”Hello darkness my old friend”. The harmonies are breathtaking. I instantly fast forward the VHS to end credits so I can find out this song. The next few weeks is basically me soaking up every Simon & Garfunkel song I can get my hands on. Bridge Over Troubled Water is a masterpiece without a doubt. It took hundreds of hours to record and it sold millions but it also brought the end of them as a band. Although the did reform in later years, this was them at their creative peak. An Important addition to my top 50.

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favourite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like David Bowie or Arcade Fire.
