Songs in Our Heart # 37

The Sound of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel) (Written by Paul Simon; released October 1964) [Urban Alienation Classic.  See also the great version by “Disturbed.”  As to that, in the interests of ‘balance’, note the comment on that band’s version and film of the song at:  http://fasterlouder.junkee.com/how-the-hell-did-disturbeds-sound-of-silence-become-a-viral-hit/860332 (though we have to say it reads like a ‘Disturbed’ fan carrying a lot of pre-packed resentment….It’s just a song, people.  It’s not like it’s Why Does it Always Rain on Me? or anything.]
