Simon & Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence

A wonderful song of Simon & Garfunkel Live event in Central Park, 1981.

“The Sound of Silence” is a song by singer-songwriter duo Simon & Garfunkel. Written in February 1964 by Paul Simon in the aftermath of the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, the song propelled the group to mainstream popularity. An initial version preferred by the band was remixed and sweetened, and has become known as “the quintessential folk rock release”. In the U.S., it was the duo’s second most popular hit after “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.
