ADDITIONS AND DIGRESSIONS
 
 
Simon and Garfunkel, So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright, [Bridge Over Troubled Water], Paul Simon, Columbia Records, USA 1970

So long, Frank Lloyd Wright.
I can't believe your song is gone so soon.
I barely learned the tune
So soon
So soon.

I'll remember Frank Lloyd Wright.
All of the nights we'd harmonize till dawn.
I never laughed so long
So long
So long.

Architects may come and
Architects may go and
Never change your point of view.
When I run dry
I stop awhile and think of you

So long, Frank Lloyd Wright
All of the nights we'd harmonize till dawn.
I never laughed so long
So long
So long.

  
Nel 1966 le poste degli Stati Uniti hanno emesso un francobollo, del valore nominale di 2 cent, dedicato a Frank Lloyd Wright. Dietro al ritratto dell'architetto è visibile il Guggenheim Museum di New York.
