David Draiman has such a BEAUTIFUL extravagant voice ...it puts chills up and down my body EACH TIME I HEAR IT. It has become a favorite. Was never a fan of the original one. (I'm in my 60's s so I did grow up with it.) But Draiman puts so much of his EXISTANCE....his own soul into it. He made it into an EXPERIENCE, not just a song. I grew up going to every concert I could in Seattle way back...for all the huge names/bands, and this one is top tier, thats for sure. Oh heart, be still!
What? Didn't pick up on the subtle Hank Williams Sr. Influence?? Small injection of Turtles nuances from the 60's? How about the unmistakable Hopi ceremonial drum play? Think I picked up some classic John Lee Hooker, if you listen real close, about 13/16's through the song. Unmistakable. It's there. And who can deny they borrowed heavily from Mormon Tabernacle Choir's ability for hyper-dynamic vocal projection??!!?? All in all, you guys were spot on!!
Want disturbed normal songs? Down with the sickness, stupefied, indestructible, another way to die...songs like that. David Draimen is classically trained so he knows how do do songs like this but mainly, he sings heavy metal.
Not bad for having pneumonia, eh?.... Studio version has as much if not more "OOMPH"! Jewish cantor, classically trained.... awesome! Paul Simon rang him to congratulate him! Simon and Garfunkel warned us, Disturbed is P!SSED we didn't listen!
"And the People Bowed and Prayed, to the Neon God They Made..." An apt allegory to the screen addiction to tv/computer/mobile phone screen and social media addiction that plagues modern society today, when friends will sit next to each other and text each other but not say two words to each other. This song is an amazing statement for the state of society now days, powerfully delivered.
I freaking LOVE this performance! The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel was the first song I ever truly loved (I liked I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles a lot at 5 years old, but Sound Of Silence I loved and obsessed over, trying to imagine visuals and the meaning of the lyrics when I was 7 years old). Love it to this day and always thought it would be utterly impossible for anyone to cover it adequately. Then Disturbed came along and effing blew me away! It's sacrilege, but I think I like this a little more even than the original! And this live performance, with the moody lighting, orchestral support and those drums, along with the AMAZING vocal performance...WOW!!!
Watch her head and and eyes. She absolutely feels this song. This shows that people of all colors can get along if media, which the song is about, can get along with no race war because we all care about each other in the end!
Lead vocalist David Draiman, In a bit of irony, is classically trained. Thanks right boys and girls, Opera. Art Garfunkel not only approved of his rendition, he said it was the way the song should be performed.
I'm an old timer also. I knew the original and my son is a huge metal fan. He is the one who said mom you need to listen to this. It was amazing. I had to learn more about David Dormain. The man is amazing I found put that he was classically trained no wonder he has such great range and the powerful way he uses his instrument (his voice) is wonderful. I was a fan of the original but I don't think I ever really listened to the lyrics. David makes you listen to the lyrics and is so powerful telling the story. That is what music does tell a story and he is a wonderful story teller. I am very eclectic and was raised to embrace all music I am definitely a new Disturbed fan.
More people trying to make money off of Davids extreme talent!! Yeah its an amazing song ! Gives my very musically talented and educated wife goosebumps and she can actually name the exact chords he is singing in. That being said she would not try to make money off others talent. And she can say more than his voice is great..
I absolutely LOVE watching reaction videos when they start off immediately with 'I love his voice'. I always laugh and think to myself, or even say, get ready for the ride! His skill and voice are world class. He is in the top handful of male singers in the entire world. My suggestion is that you do a reaction to Disturbed's official video of The Light. It may be even more moving and power than this cover. I hope that you do a reaction video of that song as well. It truly is amazing.
You are about as shallow as you can get. Did you ever stop to listen to the words? 30 million children go to bed hungry every night in this country. I have a suggestion listen to it again, listen to what the song is telling you..
I just turned 61 and remember the original. It was a folk song written and sung by Simon and Garfunkel during an uncertain time in this country.. I really loved it but this rendition is so phenomenal I just can’t describe how amazing it is. For me this rendition is particularly meaningful and powerful considering today’s political climate.
I've been watching the REACTION Vids on this song for a while now and yours was great... Seems as if everyone has the same reaction to his voice going low to high... He's a trained Opera Singer and does it well...
I grew up listening to the original version of this song and even as a young person I liked it. But, this version is mesmerizing to me. It almost makes me cry, not sure why. Love you guys, thank you for reacting to this 💜
Raina bosworthf my son does have a seizure disorder and I did make a comment on another reaction video by a different site, I was just surprised how you saw that since I didn't say anything about him on this video reaction. Thank you for your prayers, that means so much. I will continue to pray for you and you precious son as well 💜
Mary I will pray for your son now &I know how much your going through my son who just fought lung cancer now he has leukemia, this is a hard road,let's both pray that God will bless both of our son's with a complete healing, somehow I don't think this was a coincidence that we're going through the same thing,I just happened to read the comments &found your request, it's meant to be that our son's will be healed in God's name I pray for they are healed right now
This performance was nominated for a Grammy! He was classically trained to be Cantor. I second the request to react to Chris Stapleton. He's "classified" as country but it's being said more and more that he is his own genre of music. A lot of his songs are blues influenced like "I Was Wrong", "Death Row", "Sometimes I Cry." He and Justin Timberlake have worked together many times and are on Justin's video Say Something. He's also been in a southern rock band and a bluegrass band. He's written songs that Adele and Sheryl Crow have done as well as many country music stars. This mans voice ooozes soul no matter what genre he's singing.
I was around for the original, too.
I still get goosebumps and tears when I hear this version. I can listen to it every single day, and STILL get the same reaction.
It's a whole different feeling than the original.
He is amazing

Disturbed has a lot of great songs. I'm sure you're getting a lot of suggestions, but one of my personal favorites is "The light". This is showing a softer side of Disturbed. I grew up with the original "Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel. Disturbed does the song justice. It's a different sort of feel.
Beautiful, right?! Now you should really try this version: "Disturbed - The Sound of Silence [Live in Houston w/ Myles Kennedy]" - You already know Disturbed, but I'm not sure about Myles Kennedy which is one of my favourite singers (vocalist for Alter Bridge mostly). He really adds something amazing to the performance. Cheers! 🙂
The internet is a sea of valuable information of all accumulated human knowledge where we can delve into any subject known to man and learn every single detail about it without leaving our bedrooms. If used properly, we can all become nuclear physicists and create a Utopia of quantum power where the monetary system becomes void because we do have all the knowledge and technology as humans to satisfy all our human needs while preserving the planet’s natural resources and without any wars. It’s all there at our fingertips. But you’re idiots. We are all idiots.
As hip-hop remains a staple in our society, we continue to appreciate the artists behind this broad genre of music. While Biggie and Tupac represent the best of hip-hop excellence from both coasts, we also remember these two as humans beings, just like the rest of us. With that comes personality, charm, and, of course, a good sense-of-humor.
Today, with the ever-changing nuances of technology and the Internet, rappers can express themselves and their senses of humor in ways far beyond that their music. Whether it’s a GIF, a tweet, a meme, a Snapchat — there’s never a bad time to insert comedy into any given situation. When it comes to music videos, Lil Dicky sets the bar high with “$ave Dat Money,” which clocks in at over 84 million views and counting. Aside from his undeniable talent behind the mic, LD effortlessly reveals a career in comedy is at his fingertips.
