Deeep Deeeep Deep song
My great grandpa had to go through this
This and Seethers "Careless Whisper" are the best covers in the last 10 years
M&S's crushed this cover....

Is it a cover if Paul Simon is playing with them..?

Freaking amazing !
Yeah
Love it!
I actually fought a little over Simon & Garfunkel CD in my divorce back in the 80's and lost.
The original is much better...
Good job guys I really feel sympathy for u peeps ✌luv everyone keep up ur dreams!!!!

One of the best songs ever. They play it better than the original by Simon and Garfunkel.
Follow for a follow
Great cover. Bravo

wonderful
Great cover.
Just woke up to this delightful
Simon and Garfunkel made the warm feelings of my childhood into a song. These brilliant men worked with Simon to make it embody my double-digit years, this year of being 13, more particularly .
LOVE this song but i do say that Simon and Garfunkel is better

Kiss your hand. Say your crushes name. Say a day of the week. Say your name. Repost this fifteen times and your crush will ask you out.
This is such a beautiful song!! It doesn't matter who sings it

Ha!!! Simon and Garfunkel are of course way better but this very nice to know a great band such as Mumford and sons would cover it ♥

I love their version of this classic song!!
I think the original may have rang more true in the 60s, many a poor boy has sang many a song since the early days.
I love Mumford and sons but I like the original better tbh lol
On the original I can't understand Simon & Grafunckel
This is awesome! Reminds me of when I was a kid and my parents used to play the original :) memories
I like the original better
You cant receive a better message in a song
Maybe almost as good as the original. I love this
Not bad... pales in comparison to the emotion and imagery conveyed in the original. Nice attempt though...
Paul Simon is a genius. I love this version. Just great.
Their music is just so... Smooth and good lol I love it
Favorite song in the world
