scissors cut

I´ve always loved this song. It´s "Scissors Cut" written by Jimmy Webb, but here sung by Art Garfunkel (never knew Garfunkel sang it btw - I prefer Jimmy Webb singing it, on his album "Angel Heart" (album´s hard to find; v expensive!...))

It contains the quintessential Cold War declaration of love, when starting:

"If they ever drop the bomb," you said
"I'll find you in the flames"

As for the Garfunkel, it´s still good. I do wonder if that´s possibly Jennifer Warnes or Linda Ronstadt singing the backing vocals.
