The Sounds Of Silence

One of my new favorite songs is actually a classic. Disturb’s cover of The Sounds Of Silence is one of the most beautiful, haunting songs I have heard in a very long time.

It reminds me that this song, is still as powerful in 2017 as it was in late 60’s. The basic message of the song to be quiet and listen to one another. Given our present fractured political climate, it feels right to re-introduce the song to a new generation. Instead of yelling over each other, this country and this world would be a better place if we actually understood what it is to listen to others.

Songs are more powerful than we think they have. Songs can move mountains, change the world, change an opinion. This song is one of those songs.

That is the reason it is one of my new favorite songs.

  1. I LOVE Disturbed’s cover of this! You’re absolutely right. They modernized it without changing the substance of the original.😊
