  Bridge over Troubled Water (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the song "bridge" is used as a simile for something stable and comforting, as opposed to the wildly streaming river, representing trouble, pain, and unrest.
This song's recording process exposed many of the underlying tensions that eventually led to the breakup of the group after the album's completion.
It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in the Grammy Awards of 1971, with its album also winning several awards in the same year.

It also managed to cross over between segments of the audience that the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, et al., seldom reached -- siblings from teens to early thirties bought it, and teenagers and their parents alike loved different parts of the record.
The songs were widely covered by artists in virtually every category, and the entire LP's worth of material was re-thought in a jazz vein by Paul Desmond on A&M Records.
The August 2001 remastering of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is the first-ever CD version of the album that sounds good -- properly mastered off of what sound like the real first-generation tapes, it lives up to the expectations that one had for this record on CD.

Simon & Garfunkel : Bridge Over Troubled Water
Bridge Over Troubled Water was one of the biggest-selling albums of its decade, and it hasn't fallen too far down on the list in years since.
Bridge Over Troubled Water, at its most ambitious and bold, on its title track, was a quietly reassuring album; at other times, it was personal yet soothing; and at other times, it was just plain fun.

Simon and Garfunkel — Bridge Over Troubled Water
Undoubtedly the song’s highlight is the beautiful slow melody played between choruses which sees a pedal steel guitar doubled by a trumpet to create an unsettling and moving effect.
Bridge over troubled water is an amazing song, and shows the songwriting talent of these two guys.

 "Bridge Over Troubled Water"
It was that kind of resentment -- ironically, over a song of unity -- that lead to their break-up a short time later.
Eventually, his part of the song became so elongated that, in the studio, Paul decided to tack on a third verse.
The single version of "Bridge" broke in early February 1970, and spent six weeks at the top of the charts.

"Bridge Over Troubled Waters" was the biggest success of Simon and Garfunkle's career based upon the massively popular song of the same name and a number of other successful hits.
To label Bridge Over Troubled Water Simon & Garfunkel's "best" album is misleading--each of their releases is fantastic, and truth be told, as a unit Bookends is probably their best album (the A-side is a gigantic song cycle that is magnificent, highlighted by the startling "Voices Of Old People").
As with most Simon & Garfunkel, Bridge Over Troubled Water is strikingly melancholy--to me, the album is a brutally honest examination of the loneliness of everyday life.

I've listened very carefully to the song and I eventually realized that this is possible (the drugs, rather than a lover, being the bridge) but I, like nearly everybody else on this planet, will continue to regard it as a love song.
'Bridge Over Troubled Water' was one of the biggest (if not the biggest) selling albums of the 1970's, and still outsells many of its peers to this day.
The album ends with the short and sweet track, 'Song For The Asking', which with the benefit of 20:20 hindsight, sounds like a goodbye, and certainly marked the end of an era, and for Paul Simon atleast, the start of a new one.

"Bridge..." is a classic song, made new by this arrangement that I wish was a little less "Up with People" styled, but still excellent.
As I was listening to this song for the first time, towards the end of the second verse I recognized where the arrangement was heading.
I was very happy that Bridge Over Troubled water was included on this CD, although I must admit that I wish it had been the live performance.

They're the kinds of songs you like, good songs, but not the type considered the highlight of an album or an undisputed classic like the title track always will be.
The slower songs are more thoughtful and often beautiful, generally songs of loss and sorrow that seem to reflect the collapse of the artists' relationship.
"Song for the Asking" is a somewhat weaker tune, but not without its merits.

 Rolling Stone : 51) Bridge Over Troubled Water
On their fifth and final studio album, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel were pulling away from each other: Simon assembled some of it while Garfunkel was in Mexico acting in the film Catch-22.
Garfunkel vetoed Simon's song "Cuba Si, Nixon No," and Simon nixed Garfunkel's idea for a Bach chorale.
What remains is the partnership at its best: wry, wounded songs such as "The Boxer" with healing harmonies, though the gorgeous title track was sung by Garfunkel alone, despite his resistance.

There are cheap shots all over the place, like a "new" version of the title track that's merely the original with overdubbed "rock" instruments, and "Somewhere They Can't Find Me," a transparent rewrite of the last album's title track.

 Paul Desmond : Bridge Over Troubled Water - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water was the hottest album in the land in 1970, and Paul Simon's tunes from that and their earlier albums unexpectedly find a congenial advocate in Paul Desmond.
Against the odds as determined by bopsters, Desmond finds something beautiful, wistful, and/or sly to say in each of these ten tunes, backed by Herbie Hancock's Rhodes electric piano and a set of ravishing, occasionally overstated (as in "America") orchestrations by Don Sebesky.
"The 59th Street Bridge Song" is given a jaunty, carefree rendition, adapting quite well to a jazz treatment (after all, Desmond's old teammate in the Brubeck quartet Joe Morello played drums on S&G's original record) and Desmond even does some cascading overdubs on his solo part.
