Bridge Over Troubled Water

Bridge Over Troubled Water

Simon and Garfunkel’s final album together is released January 26, 1970. Both the single and the album shoot to #1 in America, with the album spending 10 weeks at the top spot and the single staying for six. They sweep the Grammy Awards, winning for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. It’s #51 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.  The album sells over 25 million copies — many of the songs deal with the duo’s long friendship and the fracture of their musical relationship: “The Only Living Boy In New York” was written by Simon to express his loneliness after Garfunkel spent months away making a movie.
