“Mrs Robinson” — Simon and Garfunkel

No Words, No Song

Have you ever heard something hundreds of times without ever really listening to it? Last week I really listened to “Mrs Robinson” for the first time.

I do most of my music listening in the car whilst driving between client appointments. It’s not the best place, acoustically speaking, for listening to music but it’s “me time” when I can’t do anything else, so I just sit back and listen to my favourite songs.

At least that’s what I thought I did. But I got a new car fairly recently, with a better sound system than my old car, and it turns out…

No Words, No Song

Without words, it’s just a nice tune. Add words — now you’ve got a song. And songs can change your world. I write about some that changed mine.
