25 Songs, 25 Days (Day 18)


Day 18

Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water (1964)

I could have picked several of their songs as I adore them; the poetry, the imagery, the harmonies. Sadly, the OH cannot share my enthusiasm so I never play it in the car… I am prioritising heading over to Spotify after I write this so I can enjoy it while he’s not home!

Singing along right now and feeling every single emotion; friendship, love, loneliness, sadness, pain.

The way his voice soars and the sincerity in it touches me every time.

We all need that one person in our lives that we know will be there when life gets too hard.

Someone to “sail right behind” us as we navigate the stormy seas of loss, depression, stress, and all the other flotsam and jetsam life can throw at us. Some who will say “your time has come to shine, all your dreams are on their way.”

I usually listen to this song with tears in my eyes. The combination of the sentiment behind it, the vocals and the piano… it’s all a bit too much for this sensitive little soul who has had her days when she needed a Bridge. A big fucking strong suspension Bridge!

I truly hope you guys and gals reading this have a Bridge in your life… you deserve one.

  1. This is one of my most favorite songs… used to play it on the piano, one of the most difficult ones I managed to learn, then lost the sheet music in one of our many moves. 10 years without a piano and I forgot it. Love S&G! What is wrong with OH?! 😉

  2. one of my absolute favorite songs, though i listen to it sung by Elvis. I have the original S&G album this song is on, of which I adore, but I have this connection – a gift from my mom – with Elvis.

Talk to me!
