The Sound of Silence

"The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel is my favorite song ever.

I listen to it on line every day. Sometimes with Neil and Art, but often by Her Royal Majesty's Marine Band with Harry and Megan there (try it out on You tube) and others who have covered it.

I don't know exactly why it is my song, but it is. Something about the mystery and strangeness in the lyrics, something about the melody, something about how it speaks to my soul in all its weirdness.

One reason I listen to it every day is so I don't wake up with some stupid song in my head that I can't shake until afternoon--mostly childhood songs like...well, I can't remember any since when I think of songs I hear "The Sound of Silence" in my head!

So, it's worked.

And I could listen to my favorite song every minute of every day.

I love it so. 

"Hello, Darkness my old friend, I've come to talk to you again..."

There's nothing like the sound of silence.

And that's from a guy with tinnitus....
