monday morning music: bleecker street
posted by soe 11:31 am

I was listening to a lot of place songs this weekend, and found myself re-enchanted by the Jonatha Brooke version of “Bleecker Street.” Videos of this particular song are sparse, so I offer you this one of the Simon and Garfunkel original:

Cover Lay Down wrote a post earlier this year looking at covers of various S&G songs that includes a QuckTime version of the song. Jonatha takes what was already a gorgeous song and turns it into a hymn.

The Jonatha version is available on Bleecker Street: Greenwich Village in the 60’s. The original is on S&G’s Wednesday Morning 3AM, Old Friends, and The Essential Simon and Garfunkel.

Thank you for posting this! I love this song, but I haven’t heard the cover you mention.
