Mrs Robinson – The Graduate – Simon & Garfunkel

I saw the film The Graduate when it was released in the UK which would have been slightly later than in the US in 1969.  I loved it and have watched several times since. Brilliant acting and Mrs Robinson’ is a song that I still listen today on my movie soundtrack playlist.

Written by Simon & Garfunkel it was released on their fourth studio album ‘Bookends’ in 1968 having been included in the soundtrack for The Graduate the year before.  The track hit #1 on the Billboard 100 as well appearing in the top ten in Europe. It was also the first rock song to win a Grammy  for record of the year.

Here is the song from the film uploaded courtesy of Mr E.

You can buy ‘Bookends’ in various formats: Amazon US – and: Amazon UK

and The Graduate: Amazon US – and: Amazon UK

Thank you for dropping in today and if you have a favourite song from the movies let me know…sally.cronin@moyhill.com  thanks Sally

  1. Simon and Garfunkle have always been among my favorite singer/songwriters. I have had the pleasure of recording Mrs. Robinson which I think is one of the all time greats and what a joy it is to perform it. Just saw the movie again, recently, and it still rings well in spite of the changing times. Thanks for sharing this with us, Sally. Hugs

  2. I was never that much of a Simon and Garfunkel fan, but I liked this one. I was watching part of The Graduate the other day, and my first thought was, “I can’t ever remember Dustin Hoffman looking this young.” Of course, I say the same thing about myself when I look back at old photos.😎
