Aqui vai a belíssima balada folk do Simon & Garfunkel chamada Boxer, gravada no final da década de 60, e em seqüência trechos de comentários feitos por pessoas comuns no youtube contando suas experiências com a música!
"Yesterday while I was downtown looking through this store that sold classic novels and old records. This song came over the speaker. And everyone in the store whites, blacks, asians, spainish, young, and old everyone listened, and some even hummed along. No one leaft the store until the song finished. I nearly cried.""22 years ago driving into wales with the family on a holiday this song came over the radio my dad turned around to me as a 8 year old lad and said son sit down and listen to one of the greatest songs written.At that age i wasnt to sure what music meant never mind who simon and garfunkel were.All i can say about this outstanding bit of music is thanks for all the great times it reminds me of.and 22 years later ive learnt it on the guitar and can listen to it anytime anyplace i feel like.""This song is just perfect. It transports me to my happy place.""Simply fantasic song which means so much and the experiences you can draw from your of your own life. Parts so true especially the last words "The fighter still remains" for those of us who have fought in the ring, the ring never leaves you.""It's so fluid, I mean Paul and Art's voices seem to melt together into one, and also the fluidity of Paul's guitar, doesn't sound forced, or strained, so nice. I love when the violin strings hit that high pitch about the 3rd lie-la-lie, sends a chill through me, and what exactly is that low instrument playing continued through the rest of the lie-la-lies, it's pure genius. One beautiful song.""Thank God for the '60's. Now, Nothing but the sounds of silence. This is the time of the Assassins. the Poets are being killed. All music is a wasteland of hip hop.""Here are the words of the missing verse which Simon wrote but were not used on the original recording:
Now the years are rolling by me
They are rockin' easily
I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be and that's not unusual.
No it isn't strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same."""A moutain of a song. One would have to reach for the sky to surpass this amazing work of art."
