The Sound of Silence...

Felt a little nostalgic tonight, so I sat hunting through my CD collection to get a feel for why.

You know, I thought I'd never come across a good cover version of Simon & Garfunkel's original of "The Sound of Silence", but I've got to admit, Disturbed's cover is... absolutely stunning, in my humbles! I caught this one on headphones a while back and it continues to give me shivers. Mind you, they also did "Land of Confusion" by Genesis, and did a pretty decent cover of that...


So, good or bad, do you have a favorite cover version lurking on your shelf? Got any links?

I think a third for me would be Metallica's cover of "Whiskey in a Jar", possibly followed in close fourth by Shinedown and "Simple Man"...

Fantastic... just... breathtaking... *sniffles, then rummages again through CDs...*


I read once silence a word you cannot describe by a poet on another site and it stuck with me..i guess we can describe anything we want but sometimes a few words make one stop and think....
