Listening the Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Waters always brings tears to my eyes. The music with full orchestration, heartfelt lyrics, and Art Garfunkel's angelic rendition, just beautiful.

I named my horse Silver Girl because of that song. I love Artie too -- I saw him perform in January. :heart:

I saw Simon and Garfunkel perform at an outdoor concert and again at an indoor venue. Both times were wonderful experiences. You have a horse! I :heart: horses. Such majestic creatures. What kind of horse is Silver Girl?

I don't have a horse now. This was many years ago, when I was 13 - 16. My grandfather kept a few horses at his property.

Silver Girl is on the right.

No, she wasn't silver -- I just liked the lyric from Simon & Garfunkel. 8)

lyrics-
NANA [Manuel De Falla]
Duérmete, niño, duerme, [Go to sleep, boy, sleep,]
Duerme, mi alma, [Sleep, my soul.]
Duérmete, lucerito [Go to sleep, little star]
De la mañana. [Of the morning.]
Naninta, nana, [Lulla, Lullaby]
Naninta, nana. [Lulla, Lullaby]
Duérmete, lucerito [Go to sleep, little star]
De la mañana. [Of the morning.]
<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Note- in this context, "Nana" means "Lullaby"
this is a song about a refugee, a mother and her child, singing her son asleep with a lullaby, wishing they were home. :(

"hallelujah" - Jeff Buckley (yes, I know it's a cover).
"strange fruit" - Billie Holiday

KD Lang's rendition is emotional and silky smooth. One of my favorites.
