Featured Unknown/Underrated Song*: "Bookends" by Simon & Garfunkel

One of the best albums early in the Rock Era is Bookends by Simon & Garfunkel, showing the tremendous lyrics of Paul Simon.  The "Bookends" theme opens the album, but the single is placed on the album after "Old Friends", and now is often played together with that song:

Lyrics and Music by Paul Simon

Time it was
And what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences.

Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you.
