Simon / Garfunkel / Covered


i put together this playlist of paul simon / simon & garfunkel cover songs last week and have been wanting to share it… been toying around with the idea of sharing the mixes via a streaming site, and 8tracks seemed like a pretty good bet (thanks to kate for turning me onto them.) i know streaming can be a pain for my fellow south africans, but maybe give it a couple of listens if you’re using office bandwidth (muwahaaaa.) to everyone else with first world internet – enjoy.
