"A BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER" Simon and Garfunkel Music Video~ The Number 1 Song of 1970

Here are three slightly different 
versions of one of the world's
most popular songs
in history.
~'A BRIDGE OVER 
TROUBLED WATER'~
**************************
The Studio Version
**********************
The Concert in Central Park
Garfunkel sings solo...
*********************
This is our personal favorite,
because one can read the
very special lyrics as the 
song plays....
As a point of interest, the last 
and 5th verse was added just 
before it was recorded. 
The story goes that Garfunkel wasn't
satisfied with the final product. He
wanted to write a last verse that
would give 'the bridge' the
power he envisioned. He was told
"NO" on the basis it would make
the song too long; that songs over
3-minutes were not marketable.
Since he wrote and owned the song,
he said 'no 5th verse...no song.'
His will prevailed and it's the last
verse that makes a great song
a classic. Just listen. I think you will
agree with Garfunkel.
Here it is...
With written Lyrics Version
