Being a creator, I understand the pain of other people stealing your creation. However, music is such an art that when other people play or sing it, it’s more of a compliment! Moreover, when a person with an achieved status performs the music that you wrote, it is an honor!

Simon and Garfunkel is a band that has stood the test of time. This is probably because people of every age can relate to their fantastic music! And their classic song “Bridge Over Troubled Water” is so incredible that it has earned a legendary fan— Elvis Presley! And 50 years later, people are still in love with the rendition.
