A Bridge Over Troubled Water
Wikipedia Page: Bridge Over Troubled Water
Special thanks to Simon and Garfunkel for writing the song "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". I had always thought that Aretha Franklin had wrote the song. I heard the S & G version for the first time last night. Sorry to say fellas - "Re Re" done took your work and ran with it. Her version drives me to close my eyes and raise my hands to the sky as if I was in church listening to a spiritual.
I even listened to Bobby Womack's version of the song. He is more soulful than S&G but he still can't touch Aretha Franklin's version.
