Groupe : Simon & Garfunkel
Titre : The Sound Of Silence
Album : Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.
Année : 1964

The Sound Of Silence est sans doute le titre le plus connu du duo formé par Paul Simon & Arthur Garfunkel. Classé à la 157e place du classement des 500 plus grandes chansons de tous les temps du magazine Rolling Stone, le titre du groupe folk américain existe deux versions, une acoustique et une électrique. C'est Paul Simon qui commencé à écrire The Sounds of Silence de son côté avant de l'enregistrer avec son partenaire.

Lyrics :

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
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.

"Fools," said I, "You do not know.
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence."

Un classique un peu trop "doux" pour moi mais j'applaudis tes articles. :yes:

Les articles musicaux ont du mal à trouver leur public ... J'en sais quelque chose avec mes articles de ma catégorie "Music archives" ;)
