Amazingly we’re already at week 24 of Hugh’s fun series ‘51 Songs from the Past in 51 Weeks‘, and this week Hugh asked about a song listened to at a sad time in your life.
As someone who has certainly had my share of sad times over the years, I’ve always been soothed by Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel’s original version of ‘The Sound of Silence’ from 1964.
I love the haunting beauty of the lyrics, the melody, the harmony, and the simple acoustic accompaniment – even today it still resonates profoundly with my sad old soul… ❤
‘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
Within the sound of silence’
