a�?Simon & Garfunkel is the music I grew up on. I still remember listening to their songs with my brother and sister. Their music was so unconventional at the time; it just changed the musical arrangement scene,a�? says Madhukar. Adds singer Malgudi Subha, a�?I would see the notes dancing in front of me every time I heard their songs. Their music was just sublime. Even today, after a bad day, I listen to their music.a�?
