Yay!
Love this!
The seminal 60s deep song
There's such a foreboding mood of sadness and resignation,
that it leaves you alone with the truth of how lost we all truly are
This song is dark.

My favorite song ever!
These guys can get me deep in thought and then put me to sleep in the same damn song.

'Gently Disagreeing With the Machine', perhaps?
Great duet the words are amazing

Paul Simon's songwriting is SO good.
Can't get enough of this.
What a friend oh darkness you have been.
Hello silence...wh i l e sitting in darkness.
Peace has come over me.
I love

@songbryd196 8 : Yeah, this song plays at the beginning and at the end. The movie is full of S&G songs in general like Mrs. Robinson (I'm not sure if the song title comes from the character in the movie or vice versa) and Scarborough Fair. I love The Graduate.
Wasn't this song playing on the movie The Graduste
Hello, honesty, this is pain.
Hello pain, this is honesty, the two of you will be working together.
Great song of the era!
One of my favorites by simon and garfunkle
Perhaps one of the greatest folk songs of all time.
@Cade Alexander don't be a smart a$$.
In my opinion, these 2 guys were & will always be the best song writers ever. Not to mention, absolutely great vocalist. They had such great harmony together.
that the words never share
If it were really silence then there realy would be no sounds at all
Simpler quieter times, this song is about the cold war people.
I wonder what the sound of silence sounds like. #ReallyGoodQ u e s t i o n
I'm here because of breaking bad

The meaning of the song, still true today..is that for all the talking, all the debates, the protest marches,all the speeches, down to the personal heartfelt pleadings between the generations, t h e genders,the friendships. . . . . . u l t i m a t e l y it all amounts to just an aching silence, a silence with consequences .
I love this song , what it stood for .... how the silence grows like a cancer , eople protesting , trying to promote social change , growth...it' s beautiful... I wish I could've seen that
\m/ (-_-) \m/
Easier times.
to mconn649 - you're kidding right? Quieter times??? 1967. Vietnam. Riots. Assassinatio n s . Cold war fears. Cops busting long-hairs. yeah, simpler, quieter times. sheesh.
What's the meaning of this song?

YES!!!!!
One of those just perfectly written masterpieces , heard PS sing this in Central Park in 90, with about a million people singing, unforgettabl e
I sing this during power outages...
Woah, I commented about a month ago...
Arrested development anyone
And the words of the profits were written on the subway walls.
Gives me chills
I can't see for tears.Pam
Plz don't get me crying. Pam
Fave!
I love how you take care of me, couldn't ask for more.
For the great unwashed, this song came out in '64 and was electrified in '65. S & G's last album came out in early '70.
