Musical Interlude: A Hazy Shade of Winter (1966)

Time for some seasonally appropriate music from Simon & Garfunkel.

"A Hazy Shade of Winter" was first released as a single in the fall of 1966, and peaked at #13 on the pop chart. However, it was not included on the "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, & Thyme" album. Instead, it was later issued on 1968's "Bookends".

In 1987, the Bangles recorded an edited cover of "Winter" for the movie, "Less Than Zero". Fittingly, both groups recorded for the same label (Columbia).
