SIMON AND GARFUNKEL: New Video Debuts Drawn From the Movie Wild
“El Condor Pasa (If I Could)” is heard in various forms all through the movie Wild.
A new video for the iconic Simon and Garfunkel song, “El Condor Pasa (If I Could),” has debuted on Yahoo.
It features poignant clips from the movie Wild, with Academy Award nominees Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, set to the classic hit adapted from a 1913 Peruvian composition.
Director Jean-Marc Vallée says that while the song “is a constant presence with [Witherspoon’s character] on the trail… you hear her humming bits and pieces of it — you don’t hear Simon and Garfunkel singing it until near the end.”
“El Condor Pasa (If I Could)” is one of 15 songs used to illustrate Cheryl Strayed’s adventure on Wild: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The album also includes songs from other prominent names such as Paul McCartney and Wings, The Hollies, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen and The Shangri-Las.
