The Simon & Garfunkel Song That Still Makes Paul Simon Cringe and How He Rewrote It with Stephen Colbert

Paul Simon dislikes "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)" from Simon & Garfunkel's album. He rarely performs it, punishing himself when he does.

The song's lyrics were inspired by Simon's walk over the Queensboro Bridge, referencing its cobblestones and lampposts.

Simon expressed his disdain for the song on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2017, finding it naive. Colbert jokingly updated the lyrics to reflect modern times.

Simon and Colbert improvised new lyrics, addressing contemporary issues like climate change and politics, but Simon still disliked the song afterward.

Despite Colbert's attempts to add humor and relevance, Simon maintained his dislike for "Feelin' Groovy," expressing his hatred for it even after the improvised updates.
