It was a good song
but a bad habit
and this one.....
Takes me back - Thanks for sharing Dale!
1969, in love, ah memories..... and I never quite could get the lyrics. Ah - CAMBRIC shirt! (I thought it was "camel red" shirt - which of course made no sense but...) , "between the salt water and the sea strand," (never got sea strand) "..in a sickle of LEATHER..." (nor that). Oh geez... thanks Dale. And - yeah, that was probably the same year I started smoking. Wow. And then I snooped this: martin carthy scarborough fair - Yahoo Video Search Results from whom they kind of stole it. The simple clarity of his rendition.....
Well the lyrics to "Bridge over Troubled Water" are easy to understand. I love that song. Giulia The other not so much - lol
I think many of us were engaged in self destructive behavior! I remember 1968 as a really awful Year and the badness carried on into 1969. Among Nixon, Vietnam, the riots and the assassinations the chaos was everywhere! Yet we as a Nation survived!
And some good things happened too! Simon and Garfunkel soothed our wounds.
Thanks for the memories, Dale!
I'm glad we don't do that any more!
Those years were my heyday. I was having the experiences of 10 lifetimes and politics were the furthest thing from my mind.
I was like number 315 in the lottery too. :-)
Here is their whole Central Park concert.
OH BOY !
Wow! Talking about memory lane! I started in 1998, the year I came back from the US as an exchange student! Looking through the songs that came out that year just put a bunch of happy pre-smoking memories into my head! Thank you!
WHAT a song! I remember hearing them for the first time and how absolutely amazed I was...I still am when I hear their old songs. I started smoking in 1967, the year I graduated from high school.
