A Simon & Garfunkel theme ride…

I grew up with Simon & Garfunkel belting out of my parent’s stereo in the living room. My mom sewed and cleaned our house to it. My dad repaired TVs and did honey-do projects to it. I ate dinner to it and did my homework to it. I went back to my roots for today’s music theme. First Simon & Garfunkel song concept…can you figure it out from the above photo?


Riding in the early morning, embraced by the fog and surrounded by the quiet solitude of still air made me think of another favorite song of that talented duo…the two Canada geese on the roof of this barn don’t have anything to do with the song, but the scene sort of does, because it was such a peaceful and “silent” setting.


And, of course, later that same day on the ride home, my thoughts drifted to another of their hits…you’re probably already ahead of me, but Hopkins had to endure me singing the song out loud as we pedaled our Homeward Bound route.

You definitely have the better end of this deal, since I didn’t record me singing, but Simon & Garfunkel are recorded live & in concert here:

I’ll try to get more creative with this challenge, but this time around I simply had to give a nod to this classic duo and take a ride down a happy memory lane.

    I enjoyed your Simon and Garfunkel theme immensely. Every time I hear “Sound of Silence,” I am reminded of the movie “The Graduate” — even more so than “Mrs. Robinson.” It’s a beautiful song.

    Well done! You really matched the pics and text to the music in your theme. My mom is a huge Simon and Garfunkel fan, too, and she went to several of their concerts back in the day. I grew up listening to them, too, because of that. As a kid, I loved Cecilia because you could really dance to it. In later years, my mom played the Graceland album a lot.
