That was also the first time I'd ever heard Simon and Garfunkel. It took some time, but I finally understood "deep."  I listened to this 45 countless times, and I think it was part of what led me to appreciate so many types of music. 

I only wish Mom and Dad were still alive - I'd love to ask them about that time in our lives...

Had I been alive in the 60s, I'm sure this album would have been therapy for some of the devastating shit that went down (wars (well, always war) assassinations, civil unrest, etc.) - and huh....listening to it just short of 2020 it's still THERAPY.  So thanks to S&G for helping us out, and to B&R for playing it here.  Long Live RP!!  And PEACE damn it!

there are some songs that at the first note you turn up the volume . for me this one of them. Art garfunk adds nice vocals but Paul Simon is an American gem and a world treasure.so turn it up,sing along loud and proud and give thanks to be alive at a time when such wonder filled music came into being. Thanks RP for keeping it alive

Dostoevsky and Gogol had similar critiques of the radicals of their time.  This was a major theme for them.  Few realize these were both quite reactionary writers.  Notes from the Underground is a classic example. Are you saying Simon and Garfunkel were reactionaries?  This makes a little more sense now. 

 
Reactionaries?  You mean like Bob Dylan?  (Another great critic of the counter-culture.)

I'm not normally into 60s music that much, but S&G are simply amazing.

Paul Simon is one of the best songwriters ever in my opinion, this is one of the many outstanding ...

heard it on vinyl, am radio, FM, tapes, parents, streaming and it still draws me in.  
This is like poetry that stirs my memories from days gone by.  
Song has also lived, will live on.     

Drawn me in in unexpected ways.  Should be used to this RP effect, can't quite recall what I was doing yet drawn to what's  next.
Quite a set Bill!

I hope that your rhetorical question and statement reflect a snarky or misanthropic observation. If not, perhaps you've heard of widely used literary devices such as metaphors, analogies and symbolism.
