The “Bridge Over Troubled Water” album was the last and best of this great duo. Every song on it is memorable.

I recently posted on my Rockaeology blog at http://tinyurl.com/5tyalz4 the story behind the title track. The song’s title has its roots in gospel music. Performing “Mary Don’t You Weep” with the Swan Silvertones in 1958, Claude Jeter sang, “I’ll be a bridge over deep water if you trust in my name.” “Bridge” was written with Garfunkel in mind as the lead, but Simon came to regret the decision to give the song to Artie.

Funny Paul should regret giving Art this song...Art got shafted in the song split, IMO.
