When you hear this song it just slaps you in the face, it's so inspirationa l and symbolic.
That sounds stupid coming from a 14 year old...

2. Close your eyes
3. Say your crushes name
4. Post this on 5 different songs and your crush will ask you out next time you see them

The seminal 60s deep song
There's such a foreboding mood of sadness and resignation,
that it leaves you alone with the truth of how lost we all truly are

This song is dark.

These guys can get me deep in thought and then put me to sleep in the same damn song.

'Gently Disagreeing With the Machine', perhaps?

@songbryd196 8 : Yeah, this song plays at the beginning and at the end. The movie is full of S&G songs in general like Mrs. Robinson (I'm not sure if the song title comes from the character in the movie or vice versa) and Scarborough Fair. I love The Graduate.
