Video: Bridge Over Troubled Water (Stargate, Sam/Jack)  
Song: Bridge Over Troubled Water
Artist: Simon & Garfunkel

This is a video idea from VastlySuperiorStuff over at the Gateworld Sam/Jack Ship Family Thread.

Initially I thought of doing this as a shippy video but as I got deeper into it I felt the song truly called for a friendship. My direction for it is based on a conversation that I feel Sam and Jack must have had right after she came to talk to him in Heroes after he'd been shot. So this video is in Jack's point-of-view and it's what I believe he is telling Sam.

Many thanks to VastlySuperiorStuff and Gatebee for all of their help getting things right.

2011 editing note:
I made two versions of this one. When I was making this video originally I had an overwhelming desire to add a record scratch to the audio. I guess all those years of hearing this song played on a record player makes a “clean” version sound wrong. So now I figured I'd do it just for kicks. So now there's one version with and one without.

*tears up* I love this song so much! It's so great for them. He really plays that role for her, I think you're absolutely right.

The vid is perfection. Simple, classic, straight to the heart. Well done, as always!

*blushes* Perfect? Oh gosh, now how am I going to top that? *grins* This song is so very good that I wanted to keep the video simple so as not to overplay it. I guess it worked okay. Thank you so much.
