Song of the Day: Simon & Garfunkel, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”

On this day in 1971, at the 13th Grammy Awards, Simon & Garfunkel took the Grammys for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for "Bridge Over Troubled Water," and the album of the same name took the Grammy for Album of the Year. We guys didn’t especially like the song, but liked that it was a slow dance…

  1. Hi John – I’ve always loved this song and others of theirs. The title is a necessary one for today – bridging troubled waters to find peace – I sure hope so … PS I’m not sure of the lyrics – so possibly not a great analogy! Cheers Hilary

  2. I love these 2 even though they never really got along. They were a great singing team and harmonized so well. I do love their music.
