    Nice. Every now and then heavy metal artists throw up a good ballad or two (yes, I know this is a cover of Simon and Garfunkel). If they could just get rid of their thrash ….

    Just another reason we won’t see an explosion of musical creativity like the 1960s for hundreds of years, if at all. It’s more than half a century since Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel wrote the lyrics for The Sound of Silence, which was released in 1965.

    It is still being covered by imitators because, after the 1960s creative tidal wave broke, there has largely been nothing of substance since — only derivative dross.

    The lyrics are particularly pertinent to today. Prefer the original
    Hmm takes me back to …. too far..

    A cynic might suggest that it was always a shallow seam to be mining and only took ten years to become exhausted.

    I heard this a few years ago – I bought the Simon & Garfunkel version back in the 60s – but I love this version.
    It has an intensity that S&G couldn’t give this song

    Since the Israelis and the Palis are at it hammer and tongs again, this one comes to mind.

    The Last Battle – Rick Wakeman

    Love the old S&G, but they just aped the old English and Scots folk tunes.

    Ok, so I just watched a Will Farrell movie that was actually funny, and moving.

    Has this ripper of a song in it from a wonderful Swedish pop star — and I don’t usually like these female acrobatics.

    But… then it wouldn’t be metal. ☹

    Symphonic may be more to your taste…
