    Am I right in thinking this must be one of the earliest use of a synthesiser? Certainly in a 'pop' song. [2]

    "Oh my grace, I got no hidin' place" That part is so beautiful! Great song!

    I love this track. 'Bookends' is my favourite Simon and Garfunkel album and among my favourite albums by anybody. The way this track segues into 'America' is genius.

    Definitely a different song for them. Sounds like folk rock gone 80's.

    Haunting. One of their best in my opinion.

    This entire song is so unique, but that sample of The Sound of Silence is eerie!
