Simon and Garfunkel at the Central Park 1981

For an easy listening Sunday this week, let's go to a concert, a 1981 Central Park, New York, concert - a Simon and Garfunkel concert of 20 of their songs.

According to NYdailynews:

The Great Lawn of Central Park turned into a giant Scarborough Fair last night as an estimated 500,000 grown-up flower children and their children cheered two graduates of Forest Hills High School named Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, reunited in musical harmony after more than a decade apart.

Sunlight broke through gray skies and drizzle just before the words of "Mrs. Robinson" filled the center of the city at 6:45 p.m. The two were introduced by Mayor Koch with words, "Ladies and gentlemen, Simon and Garfunkel."

1981.. some of us were not even born yet but no matter, music transcends age. Yes?

Let's start with Mrs Robinson.. Enjoy!

You are still here? I mean you didn't go on over to You Tube for the other 19 numbers? Ok then, let's listen to two of my favourite tracks. No make it three.

If you like Scarborough Fair, this is a must-watch..
