Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Peace, Song Tuesday


I love this version a lot! It is so powerful! Thank you, Michael, it has been a pretty filled and hectic one. But that is the case when you are gathering too many projects (when even you love each of them), next to two jobs.


Loved it. I think this song presentation is much truer to the lyrics than the Paul Simon original (or the S & G version). There is so much distaste at the end (“… the neon Gods YOU made!” Wonderful.


I feel the same way about this song. To me, it is a different song. I said to Mark that there is such strong energy and deep emotions in each note and word. It makes you listen and think.

I think for me…it is coming from a self anger, a loss from where they feel that they are at, a knowing from that place within that they can see that they too have become a part of this fearful world, held in that stasis inside themselves daring not to speak, dare to go beyond what has ever held them…that self held silence inside us all 😀❤️🙏🏽

Sorry, but as a big fan of Simon and Garfunkel this for me is an abomination! I know that many like it, and Paul Simon has commented favourably on it, but I think it’s horrible!

I totally understand you, Clive. I often (or mostly) struggle with cover versions since they don’t have the “heart” of the original spark that created them. And I understand it even more when you are a fan of the original and/or its artists. So, yes, I understand that truly.

I often have trouble if someone covers a song that I’ve loved for ages, but it helps if they do a good job with it and bring some of their own heart and soul to it. For me, this one didn’t do that. I’m pleased you understand 😊

It is most difficult regarding the songs you grew up with. They are part of your own history. So, of course, I do understand.
However, to me, this version is like a different song and not a version. So, it holds and spreads a different energy that in some way catches my whole attention. It is one of the few covers that I love. But as we all are different so are our tastes and feelings… which is good and necessary 😊

I take the point that they have done it differently from the original and respect that. I just don’t like it! And you’re right – it would be very boring if we all liked the same music!
