Disturbed - The Sound of Silence Video Wiki

"The Sound of Silence", originally "The Sounds of Silence", is a song by the American music duo Simon & Garfunkel. The song was written by Paul Simon over a period of several months in 1963 and 1964. A studio audition led to the duo signing a record deal with Columbia Records, and the song was recorded in March 1964 at Columbia Studios in New York City for inclusion on their debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.. Released in October 1964, the album was a commercial failure and led to the duo breaking apart, with Paul Simon returning to England and Art Garfunkel to his studies at Columbia University. In the spring of 1965, the song began to attract airplay at radio stations in Boston, Massachusetts, and throughout Florida. The growing airplay led Tom Wilson, the song's producer, to remix the track, overdubbing electric instruments and drums. Simon & Garfunkel were not informed of the song's remix until after its release. The single was released in September 1965. The song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending January 1, 1966, leading the duo to reunite and hastily record their second album, which Columbia titled Sounds of Silence in an attempt to capitalize on the song's success. The song was a top-ten hit in multiple countries worldwide, among them Australia, Austria, West Germany, Japan and the Netherlands. Generally considered a classic folk rock song, the song was added to the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important" in 2012 along with the rest of the Sounds of Silence album. Originally titled "The Sounds of Silence" on the album Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., the song was re-titled for later compilations beginning with Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits..

    My 54 year old daughter warned me that I would love Sound of Silence, but that I might not like Disturbed's other music. She is a genious, but not this time. I love this group, and will begin buying their albums right now. That silly girl!

    As a 65-year-old woman who grew up in the 60s, I was a huge fan of Simon & Garfinkle's music. When I heard Disturbed's version of Sounds of Silence I was completely blown away! This is the best remake of any song, ever!
  • Perhaps the best cover song ever of all time!!!

    David Draiman's voice on this song is like what you'd imagine ZEUS would sing like if they had a mic and band up in Mount Olympus. His vocals on this Simon & Garfunkle classic is like liquid gold and each word of the lyrics creates goosebumps and sends shivers up and down my spine. This is a must buy for your collection!!!
  • Wow, haunting.

    Performed so powerfully, it will give you chills! A Simon and Garfunkel remake that Simon and Garfunkel will love. They played for a long time to a certain class of fans, but this remake is expanding their music genre, as well as their fan base to a whole new level. Powerful, timeless and classy. Nice job Disturbed! Can’t wait to see another remake!
  • Amazing!
