Rock N Roll Fridays with Simon and Garfunkel

Today they picked Simon and Garfunkel. And I just have to laugh.... Garfunkel... what a name!

1. A HAZY SHADE OF WINTER But look around, the leaves are brown, And the sky is a hazy shade of winter. Oh, seasons change with scenery, weaving time in a tapestry, Won't you stop and remember me?
Do you think of someone special during Winter? Wintertime makes me think of my grandmother because my birthday falls in December and she always used to bake me a cake for my birthday. And, I love this song as done by The Bangles! I never knew it was a remake of a S&G song! I learn something every day!

2. BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER When you're down and out, When you're on the street, When evening falls so hard I will comfort you. I'll take your part.
What cheers you up? Alcohol. Ha! Just kidding. Um... generally, trying to do something nice for someone else is what cheers me up. My dog cheers me up. Ben smiling at me cheers me up. Hugs from those I love always does the trick too.

3. EL CONDOR PASA I'd rather be a forest than a street. Yes I would. If I could, I surely would. I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet.
When was the last time you went barefoot in the grass? Yesterday, when I went to check for the mail.

4. AMERICA Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike, They've all come to look for America…
How do you entertain yourself during a traffic jam? I sing with the radio, CD or whatever else is on. I have been known to dance in my seat in the car. Or, I do like everyone else -- call someone!

5. SOUNDS OF SILENCE When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night And touched the sound of silence
What words would flash on your ideal neon sign? Money trees are NOW IN BLOOM! Get yours FREE!

6. 59th STREET BRIDGE SONG Got no deeds to do, No promises to keep. I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep. Let the morning time drop all its petals on me. Life, I love you, All is groovy.
What was the last event that made you feel groovy? Hearing Elvis sing "Santa Claus Is Back In Town." You can't NOT hear that song and have a bit of swaggar in your groove thang!

7. RICHARD CORY The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes: Richard Cory at the opera, Richard Cory at a show. And the rumor of his parties and the orgies on his yacht! Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got.
Do you make enough money to keep you happy? I stay at home with my three children so I don't make any money.

8. THE BOXER In the clearing stands a boxer, And a fighter by his trade And he carries the reminders Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
How do you feel about boxing as a sport? I think it's stupid. Let's train to get in a ring and punch someone. What fun. Yes, the guys are physically trained... but it seems their skills could be better used elsewhere. It's kind of like the UFC fighters... I think they're stupid. Don't get me wrong, they're bad-asses and I'd never want to tangle with one but it just seems stupid. However, if there's an audience, there will continue to be fights.

9. MRS ROBINSON Hide in the hiding place where no one ever goes. Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes. It's a little secret just the Robinsons' affair. Most of all you've got to hide it from the kids.
What was the last thing you hid from the kids or significant other in your home? Christmas presents!

10. I AM A ROCK I have my books And my poetry to protect me; I am shielded in my armor,
What item protects you? My faith, locks on the doors, my Spidey senses!

11. KATHY’S SONG I hear the drizzle of the rain Like a memory it falls Soft and warm continuing Tapping on my roof and walls.
What is your least favorite thing about rain? That my dogs won't go outside to go to the bathroom without being harassed by me to do it!

12. HOMEWARD BOUND Home where my thoughts escaping, Home where my music's playing, Home where my love lies waiting Silently for me.
What’s your favorite thing about your home? That my four favorite two-legged, and two favorite four-legged family members are there.

13. FIFTY WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER The problem is all inside your head, she said to me The answer is easy if you take it logically I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free There must be fifty ways to leave your lover
What was the worst way you ever left a lover? A lover... that's sounds so ... odd, to me, because that's not a word I use... like... ever. Sounds so scandalous. And, I don't rehash incidents like that up on the ole bloggidy-blog-blog. Move forward... don't look back.
