The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 152

Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.

Sometimes I feel that each song here is a little personal voyage for me on a vast and beautiful ocean of music. Thank you for joining me. I appreciate your company.

“Song For The Asking” – Simon & Garfunkel

Bridge over Troubled Water is the fifth and final studio album by American folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel, released in January 1970. “Song for the Asking” was the final track. Essentially, this was the last song Simon & Garfunkel did together and marked the end of an era.

Here is my song for the asking
Ask me and I will play
So sweetly, I’ll make you smile

This is my tune for the taking
Take it, don’t turn away
I’ve been waiting all my life

Thinking it over, I’ve been sad
Thinking it over, I’d be more than glad
To change my ways for the asking
Ask me and I will play
All the love that I hold inside

  1. This is beautiful. I had not heard this before.

  2. So many amazing Paul Simon songs, and so many S & G performances of same. How to pick just one is the problem isn’t it!

  3. I love Simon and Garfunkel but never heard this song before. Thank you very much for sharing, Chris!

  4. this was always a favourite of mine too – but it doesn’t seem to get played anymore – too subtle perhaps?

  5. This evoked such nostalgia, Chris. Simon and Garfunkel got me through the angst of my teenage years, their songs etched indelibly in my heart ❤
