simon and garfunkel

We’ll marry our fortunes together

My blog has been quite lacking in the S&G department lately, which I just won’t stand for.So here, have a video of what is probably my favorite Simon & Garfunkel song ever, America:

 

Not sure why this is my favorite…maybe because it’s one of the few songs I can play on guitar, or maybe because certain lines remind me of drum corps tour and/or roadtripping through the mid/southwest (…and the moon rose over an open field…), or maybe because every time I hear counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike I always hear the cheers of the 500,000-person crowd at Central Park.

.
Also including a 2003 version because in many ways, I think it’s better than the one above. I love when it’s just the two of them with no backing band. Plus, those harmonies just get even more beautiful with time.
