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.
