My Music: Silence

Silence

Many years back when I heard Simon & Garfunkel sing, “The Sound of Silence”, I was hooked. I was hooked by the music, and by the lyrics. It has always reminded me of a famous quote by P.D. Ouspensky, who was considered a disciple of George Gurdjieff.

PEOPLE LIVE IN SLEEP, DO EVERYTHING IN SLEEP, AND DO NOT KNOW THEY ARE ASLEEP.

P.D. Ouspensky

Filing

I hate filing papers, and doing administrative work. It drives me mad. However, through November, December and January, I must work on my website(s), do my administration work, work on my marketing plans, on my Shahjahanabad book, and the project that I am doing with Leslie. She is very talented.

Anyway, while doing some filing today – and, I have been postponing this a lot – I decided to explore some music, and some incredible versions of Simon & Garfunkel’s song came to light. These versions are dark, somewhat menacing and really suited to the world today.

Here they are. Starting with the original.

Simon & Garfunkel

Henk Poort

Disturbed

The Touch Of Class

Extended version by Disturbed

Passenger

The only thing I can say is that these versions make my skin tingle, and make me say – “Holy Mother of God….” There is some real talent out there..
Turn off the lights when you hear these versions.
