I am old enough to remember when Simon and Garfunkel's song was still on the radio, and the song was 'new'. Yeah, I'm THAT old. But, if you listen to their original version of the song, it is like a call to take note of the way people were growing more and more distant to one another. Disturbed's version is more of an Angry Cry that the warning was not heeded.
We get so caught up in the chase to make money, and be part of the 'in' crowd, that we fail to realize just how much we are losing that 'personal' touch with those around us. This is a sad thing to say about today's high tech wonders and the world we live in, but it seems more true today than ever before.
We can change this. Without losing ourselves. Just by listening to those around us with an empathetic ear, and a caring heart... and most of all, an open mind.
Like my Great Grandfather once said to me. "Life, is like a walk in the park. You only get to go around the block once, so enjoy the scenery." To me, this includes cherish those around you. For tomorrow is not a given, yesterday is gone, and today is all we truly have to show others that we care.
This guy is awesome, his power, his passion, his intensity, his incredible range, chills me to the bone every time I hear it yet I am hopefully addicted like a moth to the flame, he really knows how to make you feel the music, that he could take a 1960s folk song and make it his own, and thrill generations of fans, and make it more relevant today than it ever was is absolutely fantastic!
Hey V just wanted to tell you that i love your reactions. Got a couple of song suggestions by disturbed that you could react to. They have a song called Are You Ready and the other one is A Reason To Fight.
NEVER BEEN HERE BEFORE, BUT I THINK YOU "GET IT" ON THIS ONE, BUT MAYBE HELD BACK A BIT. I MIGHT BE WRONG, BUT WERE YOU ON THE EDGE OF BREAKING DOWN? FORGET THE CAM, LOSE YOURSELF IN THE SONG AND REALLY REACT...IT'S POWERFUL. MOVING. LET IT.
I have studied voice and classical music for 20 years. Opera snob - yep!!! A friend of mine told me I had to listen to this song. When it was over I just had to sit quiet and let the tears run down my face. There is no way I would ever listen to a heavy metal song. I felt so deeply in love with this interpretation I had to see it live, so I went to a Disturbed. 99% heavy metal, then this song comes on. The entire crowd silenced, cell phone lights were raised, some had lighters, then entire crowd of sweaty gross heavy metal fans joined in unison at the top of their lungs. It was actually quite a spiritual moment. Tears were flowing every where, including mine. In my opinion, this is the most amazing cover of a classic song I have heard. David's voice was just stunning and awe-chilling... and the talent of that heavy metal band is breathtaking...
I apologize. I might have had my guard up. I've been getting slack since I started my reaction channel about my reactions, how I do them, knowing the song & not knowing the song, etc. i'm always on the defense. My mistake. Truce?
I know it's a popular song and you might think I've seen it before but no, this was my first time seeing this video. I've heard this song covered by other artists but i've never seen disturbed's version. This reaction was my first time. I have no reason to lie or have time to watch a video before I hit record and if i've seen it in the past, I would mention it.
This is a below average version of the original by Simon/Garfunkle. This is probably the original here without the drums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zLfCnGVeL4 They did not find real success until they added drums to their songs like they did here at 14:00 minutes. https://youtu.be/SACeGmvxE1A?t=801 You cant know that unless you was alive in the 60s.
There is something so pure, innocent & honest about this woman (V) that she (in a small part due to her reaction of this song) has actually, honestly, created the all important first brick in reassembling my faith in humanity which has been on life support for far too long.
V, thank you for making me smile.
To all those that would choose to mock or belittle me for what I just said, under normal circumstances, I would tell you to go fuck yourselves & refer to you as whiny, dead inside, soulless bitches but, given the fact that this could possibly be read by V, I won't do that because I'm a gentleman.
I absolutely love Disturbed, and funnily enough, two covers are my two favorite songs of theirs. They have truly made them their own. Sound of Silence was Simon and Garfunkel, where Sound of Confusion is more their normal sound, and was written and performed by another mighty legend, Phil Collins. I recommend that one V!
Well, here we are.
You do need one with Metallicas "nothing else matters".
I should know, they played it at my funeral.
Imagine their surprise when I walked in and paid my respects to my own corpse... :D
I didn't even mean to do it, I was still very fucked up from the phenobarbital that they used try to kill me...
One thing to remember, I am a big guy and used to all sorts of drugs... You're going to have to do better than that.
Still, nothing else matters is my love song for those I love and you really should do it.
I'll be here for a week or so and then I'm going to Idlib.
As your channel appears to be dedicated to music appreciation, I’m a little surprised you had no real comment on how this video ended. You know... the part where “Charon” rows the musical instruments across the river “Styx” to unite them with their sheet music as one cannot be complete without the other. In the future you might consider discussing something other than music.
@0:58 "Oh my goodness"
Yeah...... perhaps this is the gentle way of explaining why the metal community and shows have literal legions upon legions of members. And I'm just meaning going to the concerts. And this band, Disturbed, is one of our beautiful gems.
You didn't keep stopping the video like some do, so although everyone's entitled to their opinion, find it hard to believe,that out of approx 800 viewers, there are 60 thumbs down for this amazing cover of Simon and Garfunkels original?
I guess people thumbed it down because I didn't watch the video like they wanted me to. You're right they are entitled to their own opinion but they shouldn't tell someone how to watch a video. That's my opinion.
Not to bash this particular woman but what is most disturbing about seeing so many "reaction" videos to this song is that the people "reacting" to it aren't even getting the message of the song. It seems like no one knows how to listen to musical poetry such as this anymore. This woman is a classic case of a person "hearing without listening" and "talking without speaking". We must do better teaching young people the importance of this.
Dave Draiman blew the lyrics in the line "the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls" by singing "the words on the prophets..." He was singing without reading. Seriously, though, your inference that V didn't get the message of the song baffles me, since she didn't say anything about the point of the lyrics. The absence of a remark doesn't imply a lack of understanding. I think the point of this reaction merely (and appropriately) focused on the obvious improvement musically over the original, which was what made this version so popular. I know that V pays a lot of attention to lyrics.
Amazing! I've always been a huge Simon & Garfunkel fan... and I loved this song when it originally came out. I like this version better! As someone else noted, it captures the darkness of the lyrics better, and delivers such an emotional punch. The live version on Conan may well have been better, as live versions sometimes can be when the singer is really feeling it.
You've had some of this commented previously, but I wanted to get this out there:
"The Sound Of Silence" was released in October 1964 as an acoustic ballad recorded by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. But then, producer Tom Wilson asked members of Bob Dylan's band to add electric guitar and drums to "The Sound Of Silence" and the remixed song soon became number one in the US. Paul Simon wrote the lyrics of "The Sound Of Silence" one line a day over the period of six months. In an interview, Paul explained: "We have people unable to touch other people, unable to love other people. "The Sound Of Silence" is about the inability to communicate."
On the Quora website, under "What do the lyrics of "The Sound of Silence" by Paul Simon mean?" (https://www.quora.com/What-do-the-lyrics-of-The-Sound-of-Silence-by-Paul-Simon-mean), Sean Kelly explains:
"In The Sound of Silence he was expressing his angst toward his, and other's, feelings of alienation in a post-modern world. Part of this alienation is viewed as a result of our inability to communicate effectively with one another, combined with our ready acceptance of thought and opinion as provided by the mass media. He also alludes that this is a result of our desire for, edging on addiction of, comfort as a result of our own affluence."
How true is this today ?! It is no wonder that Disturbed covered the song. It is timeless, and speaks to our society today even more so than it did in 1964.
nice to see that a 54 year old song has still the impact to touch people. simon & garfunkel made a masterpiece of music (not just this one). but i have to say that disturbed brings it to a next level his voice is - even in the silent parts - so strong and at the end so rousing as if he wants to say: awake from your lethargy and live. my biggest respect to both groups simon & garfunkel for writing this song and the lyrics and disturbed for making the best possible version of this song.
It's not a great song for a reaction video because it's not until 40 minutes later it really hits home..... and then again the following morning when you wake up with it on your mind and you realize wow, that song really effected me. lol
I never understand why people dont understand what he means with "the words of the prophets are written on subway walls and tenement halls"
It is easy, it means that the one you least expect can change the world or save your life
my biggest bully saved my life when I was attacked by 7 guys so I understand this
You look here, that's where the energy is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWtQqhYcK1Q
Thanks for the link. Save it because I'll be collecting links randomly for our fun "Request game". I just did one a few hrs ago. I collected links from subscribers for two hours and then I deleted the post. :) The reactions will go up in a month or so.
Can you do " My dark place alone" by Murderdolls. The song actually means a lot to me. With being bi polar it's really the song that describes the horror in my head at times.
Because I own my own business I have to hide my disease. Nobody outside my immediate family would understand. And I don't think they do either. So like many other's I have to suppress the depression, and desire to just end the misery. Sorry I've been so personal.
I'm 66 so I was around for the original. the official video is good but I agree that the live version is better. I'm more into the classic rock, Joplin, Hendricks, Led Zepplin but I can appreciate almost any good music. I have a don't cry challenge for you, it is a rap song which really isn't a type of music that I normally listen to. It is Million Questions a kid rapping about his mum.
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.
