101 # 1 Song of the Day 2-28-13

The 101 number one song of the day was a long song that broke up a long partnership – of the two people who were responsible for its creation. 

The two had known each other since the sixth grade and there had always been an element of tension in their working relationship.  But by the time they were working on the song you’re about to hear, that tension had grown dramatically.  While one of the partners wrote it, the other performed it as a solo on stage.  The writer remembers sitting off to the side and resenting the great response the other would get while singing it.  He said, “I’d be thinking, ‘that’s my song.’  In the earlier days when they were getting along, he said, ‘I’d never have felt that resentment.”  While they’d reunite on stage from time to time, it would be the last time they’d record together.  The song arrived at number one on February 28, 1970.  Paul wrote it, but the main singer was – Art.  Simon and Garfunkel “Bridge Over Troubled Water”
