Spring decided to appear at last, and with the warming of the weather and the promise of summer on the horizon, there is a call for something to help slough off those winter blues. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Simon and Garfunkel were a folk-rock group known by most for their number one singles “Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer,” “Mrs. Robinson” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” They released five studio albums, four live albums, the soundtrack to “The Graduate” and played together for 14 years before splitting for good in 1970.

Simon and Garfunkel’s “Keep the Customer Satisfied” is just the tune to bring a little sun to the day. The duo’s familiar, high energy vocals and swinging beat will have you fighting the urge to dance your way to class.The introduction of a brass section will make your spirits rise like the temperatures outside. With lyrics like, “I’m oh, so tired, but I’m trying to keep my customer satisfied,” but a bright and lively beat this song is perfect to listen to when the second semester is bringing you down but you’re just trying to work through the next three weeks.
