    Ha! Fair point on the title.

    Let me give that one a full listen again. I feel like I've had that on my list in the past but there were large chunks with no guitar.

    Hmmm...there's more guitar in that song than I thought. Let me start giving this a deeper listen but this could be do-able.

    Geez...I'm going to have this song in my head for weeks now aren't I? :D

    Not even remotely a faithful rendition but probably recognisable anyway. :oops:

    Well this is embarrassing I knew it was a pretty poor facsimile but hoped it was close enough to be recognisable :):)

    Clue: the song was on the soundtrack of the 2017 movie of the same name.

    Thanks! That was one of the first albums I ever owned and I know every song backwards. Sometimes I assume everyone is just like me :)

    Same here as @abnormaltoy. I’ve somehow gone through life never hearing that tune but you played it well.

    Bridge Over Troubled Water is an incredible album, give it a spin. You'll know the hits already of course.
