Happy Sunday Everyone. Our legendary song of the day is "THE SOUNDS OF SILENCE" performed by the legendary duo PAUL SIMON & ART GARFUNKEL. "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. The song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending January 1, 1966. 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. The song's origin and basis remain unclear, with multiple answers coming forward over the years. Many believe that the song commented on the John F. Kennedy assassination, as the song was released three months after the assassination. Simon stated unambiguously in interviews, however, "I wrote The Sound of Silence when I was 21 years old", which places the timeframe firmly prior to the JFK tragedy, with Simon also explaining that the song was written in his bathroom, where he turned off the lights to better concentrate. "The main thing about playing the guitar, though, was that I was able to sit by myself and play and dream. And I was always happy doing that. I used to go off in the bathroom, because the bathroom had tiles, so it was a slight echo chamber. I'd turn on the faucet so that water would run (I like that sound, it's very soothing to me) and I'd play. In the dark. 'Hello darkness, my oldfriend / I've come to talk with you again'." The original recording of the song is in D♯ minor, using the chords D♯m, C♯, B and F♯. 🎸❤ Follow : @hovig_guitar_ 👍🎸👊
