Top 10 Most Beautiful Simon and Garfunkel SongsBeatlesboy9
The Top Ten
Artie's original version set the standard, and numerous covers were done of this phenomenal song. All were good, they could not help but be good, given the source material, though Artie's was still the best. Then in 2013, Jackie Evancho performed it for the charity event "One Drop", along with the Cirque Du Soleil troupe. Paul, if you're reading this, you need to see how well your song turned out!
I doubt Paul needs that experience at all. You may love Jackie and she may do a wonderful version, but it is only a cover version, not much in comparison to the actual creative process and development of an original work, and you overrate the overall artistry. - Billyv
I was hoping this would take the crown. It's such a beautiful song. I never took any notice of the lyrics until recently. Now I hear it in a whole new light. Thank you to the lovely person who opened my ears to such a special song. You know who you are... - Britgirl
Jackie Evancho's version was sung in 2013 at "One Night for ONE DROP", Cirque du Soleil founder Gil Laliberté's charity for bringing fresh, clean water to all. All other Cirque shows in Las Vegas were dark that Friday nigh in support of this. A fitting song. Jackie was the only vocalist chosen for the show.
This is one of my favorites. - RidiculousNameV 7 Comments
The lyrics give me goosebumps... My 2nd most favourite song.
1st being The Boxer cover, by Mumford and Sons.
I love hearing this song when I'm driving on the New Jersey Turnpike at nighttime, it just fits the mood so well. It always brings a smile to my face!
This is my all time favorite song and it started out as being #2 on the list. Now I don't understand as to why it's at #8. - Beatlesboy9
It isn't currently appearing on your "remix". Perhaps you omitted it by mistake? - BillyvV 1 Comment
I love the lyrics to Kathy's song and the live versions of Paul playing this piece are just so beautiful.
