The Sound Of Silence

I was looking to write some ha,ha, on silence and saw this .. I am sure people know the song.    ..... Here are the Lyrics.


Hello darkness  , my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its  seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
With the sound of silence.
.......

In restless dreams I walk alone
Narrow streets of cobble stone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by
The flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.
........

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people , maybe more
people talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.

!!!

Watch this version all the way through.  It is amazing.  I am given to understand that Paul Simon approves.

Interesting, and different, feeding in emotion and atmosphere... Definitely helped by the video.

A touch over shouted at the end, but a far better outcome than those newstyle oldie singalong stuff you posted before.

If I were a much younger generation that hadn't heard the original hundreds of times I might think it was great, but as it is I prefer the original toned down version. All credit to S&G that their foundation could be extemperised and still be good.

Re: The Sound Of Silence

I read somewhere that Paul McCartney liked this song so much that he wrote "Let it Be" to have something of the same genre.

Maybe you will enjoy Morgan James covering Peter Gabriel.

Or perhaps you will like bluegrass Thunder and Rain covering Guns and Roses.
