"The Sounds of Silence" rocketed them to fame.
If you've ever listened closely to the words, you can't help but get shivers.
It was written after President Kennedy's assassination.
This performance is from 1966.
I just read that "The Sounds of Silence" has become one of 25 recordings selected for preservation at the Library of Congress.

I don't know of a Simon and Garfunkel song that I didn't like!
I have several albums, but now I listen to their greatest hits on CD!
(my albums will probably end up with my daughter who actually has a turntable!)
