Paul Simon – The Sound of Silence


Paul Simon recently performed his famous 1964 song for the 10th anniversary of 9/11. It was written by him following another American tragedy, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and was a number one hit at the turn of 1965-1966.

Sound of Silence has been interpreted by many in many different ways; that it is about ignorant behaviour as the result of poor communication, teenage angst, about searching for truth, or simply relates a dream in a stream of consciousness manner. Now, it will also be associated with American’s commemoration of their worst attack on home soil, which spawned the war on terror.
