"Save the Life of My Child" is a song by American music duo Simon & Garfunkel from their fourth studio album, Bookends (1968).


"Save the Life of My Child" was one of many songs on Bookends recorded with production assistant John Simon.[1]


An audio sample of the band’s first hit, "The Sound of Silence", softly plays during a cacophony of sounds near the end of "Save the Life of My Child."[2] John Simon, who was credited with production assistance on the song, created the bassline by playing a Moog synthesizer with help from Robert Moog himself.[2][3] James Bennighof, author of The Words and Music of Paul Simon, considers the churning, distorted groove and electronic instrumentation an accompanying textural element to the subject matter: suicidal suburban youth.[4] "Save the Life of My Child" is a dramatic story involving drugs, violence and a mother and child relationship. According to James Bennighof, the song "deals with individual crises in crowded urban settings, along with references to larger societal forces and at least a hint of some transcendent perspective."[4]
