Like Newspaper Blown Through The Grass

Thank you for looking. Simon & Garfunkel


There's something of an accidental coincidence about the the titles of two of the pictures I released tonight. Both titles come from the lines of songs, this one from Simon and Garfunkel's 'Old Friends' from which the title of their great album Bookends is taken and the other The Lemonheads 'If I Could Talk I'd Tell You.' The coincidence lies in a bit of music trivia where The Lemonheads breakthough single, and probably most successful song 'Mrs Robinson' is, of course, a cover of a Simon and Garfunkel song which famously featured on the soundtrack of The Graduate starring Dustin Hoffmann. I've only just realised the link myself and thought it was interesting that pictures of trees were also in fact connected by a branch of the musical family tree.
