Simon & Garfunkel – Homeward Bound (from The Concert in Central Park)

Written by on March 24, 2021


24th March 1966, Simon And Garfunkel made their UK singles chart debut with ‘Homeward Bound.’ Paul Simon is said to have written the song at Farnworth railway station, Widnes, England, while stranded overnight waiting for a train. A plaque is displayed in the station to commemorate this, although memorabilia hunters have stolen it many times. The song describes his longing to return home, both to his then girlfriend, Kathy Chitty in Brentwood, Essex, England, and to return to the United States. The song was also a No.5 hit in the US. https://youtu.be/m0oJ8_VTu3c
