I'm not big on music, but I can't recall a single release of theirs that I didn't like at least somewhat. This could make them unique to me.

Er, it's Garfunkel. Fine old Irish name.

@Tes yeux noirs,
Thanks for pointing it out. There are no Garfunkels in my family line, but I respect fine old Irish names.

More than just a pretty song. The lyrics are really deep.

IMHO, there's no finer song writing (including Beatles) that this song represents...not to mention the beautiful melody:

@Ragman,
Love this tune, at one time many years ago my sister played piano in a duo at a local restaurant, the fellow that sang with her always sang, "she said the man in the aubergine coat was a spy", she never corrected him and nobody seemed to notice, though more than once she contemplated signing, " I said be careful his bow tie is really a carrot "

@djjd62,
Cool story.

Thinking ...whatever happened to gabardine suits?

In my Freshman year of college somewhere around 1968, right after the song came out (on Bookends album), I had an English composition class. We had the assignment to discuss the lyrics. It was the most fun I've had in a college class. Everyone, especially me, paid lots of attention to that class.

A few years later, while driving across country, I played the tape in my car...and renewed its meaning. (while crossing the Mississippi River).

I thought for a time that Paul wrote this. Oh, well. It is a great, great, song anyway.

@Ragman,
Always reminds me of a trip on a Greyhound bus to Columbus Ohio when I fell in love with the young lady sitting next to me.

@edgarblythe,
Love Simon and Garfunkle and Scarborough Fair, but the song is a well known 17th century folk song overlaid with some anti war lyrics Simon previously wrote. They didn't even do the folk song part right. It is supposed to be sung between a man and a woman each challenging the other to do impossible tasks to gain the other's love. Nor was S&G the first group to record it commercially.

@engineer,
I have heard other people sing it. Celtic Woman has a good version, among others.
