"In my little town
I never meant nothin
I was just my fathers son
Saving my money
Dreaming of glory
Twitching like a finger
On the trigger of a gun"
-Simon and Garfunkel
They are called classics because they are always poignant.
I was talking to my Dad about Simon and Garfunkel not too long ago, and discussing how they were among the first, if not the first to put modern poetry to music.
BTW, my parents "song" was The Sounds of Silence.
I can't help, after growing up listening to them, to still be astounded by what they did.
I have to thank my awesome parents for having such great taste and for exposing me to it.
