Simon & Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson” is famously featured in Mike Nichols’ 1967 film The Graduate; the movie features a mother who, in Anne Bancroft's indelible seductress, archly challenges the beatific maternal ideal. To highlight its erotic associations, we liberally quote from the torch song “I Put a Spell on You,” made famous by Nina Simone, and infuse our arrangement with a sensual samba beat.
Simon & Garfunkel’s lyrics playfully speak to the multidimensional nature of mothers, if not all of womankind:
We'd like to know a little bit about you for our files
We'd like to help you learn to help yourself ...
And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson
Jesus loves you more than you will know...
