    Lyrics:

    I am just a poor boy.
    Though my story's seldom told,
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocketful of mumbles,
    Such are promises
    All lies and jest
    Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest.

    When I left my home
    And my family,
    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station,
    Running scared,
    Laying low,
    Seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go,
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know.

    Studio Version

    Lyrics:

    When you're weary
    Feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes
    I will dry them all

    I'm on your side
    When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you

    I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Sail on Silver Girl,
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way
    See how they shine
    If you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

    Simon & Garfunkel : El Condor Pasa

    4:17

    I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
    Yes I would,
    If I could,
    I surely would.

    I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
    Yes I would,
    If I only could,
    I surely would.

    CHORUS
    Away, I'd rather sail away
    Like a swan that's here and gone
    A man gets tied up to the ground
    He gives the world
    Its saddest sound,
    Its saddest sound.

    I'd rather be a forest than a street.
    Yes I would.
    If I could,
    I surely woud.

    I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
    Yes I would.
    If I only could,
    I surely would.

    Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence 1966 live

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    Fools, said I, You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you
    But my words, like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed In the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, The words of the prophets are written
    on the subway walls And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    Simon & Garfunkel - Cecilia

    2:55

    Cecilia is a song written by US musician Paul Simon. It was first recorded by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. When released as a single, it reached #4 in the US charts. The single did not chart in the UK, despite being released as the follow-up to Simon and Garfunkel's number one hit Bridge Over Troubled Water.

    The Cecilia of the title is generally interpreted as being a capricious lover, causing both anguish and jubilation to the singer. However, another interpretation[1] is that Cecilia might refer to St. Cecilia, patron saint of music in the Catholic tradition, and thus the song might refer to the frustration of fleeting inspiration in songwriting. St. Cecilia is mentioned in another Paul Simon song, The Coast (from his 1990 album The Rhythm of the Saints): A family of musicians took shelter for the night in the little harbor church of St. Cecilia.

    The song's recording is also quite funny. The Song's foundation was a percussion track in the house Paul was renting on Blue Jay Way in LA. Paul and Art slapped their thights, Eddie Simon thumped a piano bench and a friend strummed a guitar with its strings slackened to the point of atonailty. Roy Halee did the rest.

    Simon & Garfunkel - The Dangling Conversation

    2:42

    The Dangling Conversation is a song written by Paul Simon, first released in September 1966 as a Simon and Garfunkel single The Dangling Conversation/The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine. The song only climbed to 25 on the US charts and never made it onto the UK charts. Paul Simon was amazed it was not a big hit. He put it down to the song's heaviness. It was released a month later as a recording on the Simon and Garfunkel album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.

    The theme is failed communication between lovers. The song starts in a room washed by shadows from the sun slanting through the lace curtains and ends with the room softly faded. They are as different as the poets they read: Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost.

    Lyrics:

    I am just a poor boy.
    Though my story's seldom told,
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocketful of mumbles,
    Such are ppromises
    All lies and jest
    Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest.
    When I left my home
    And my family,
    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station,
    Running scared,
    Laying low,
    Seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go,
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know.

    CHORUS
    Lie-la-lie.....

    Asking only workman's wages
    I come looking for a job,
    But I get no offers.
    Just a come-on from the whores
    On Seventh Avenue
    I do declare,
    There were times when I was so lonesome
    I took some comfort there.

    CHORUS

    Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
    And wishing I was gone
    Going home
    Where the New York City winters
    Aren't bleeding me,
    Leading me,
    Going home.

    In the clearing stands a boxer,
    And a fighter by his trade
    And he carries the reminders
    Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
    Or cut him till he cried out
    In his anger and his shame,
    'I am leaving, I am leaving.'
    But the fighter still remains

    CHORUS

    Simon & Garfunkel - A Hazy Shade Of Winter

    2:18

    A Hazy Shade of Winter is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by Simon & Garfunkel in 1966 for their 1968 album, Bookends (although it also appeared on their Live from New York City, 1967). It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the second most popular song on the album after Mrs. Robinson, which earlier reached #1.

    The lyrics evoke the passage of the seasons, but (as the title suggests) focusing on the gloominess of winter. The chorus of the song repeats:

    But look around,
    leaves are brown now
    And the sky
    is a hazy shade of winter

    Look around,
    leaves are brown
    There's a patch of snow on the ground.

    Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound Of Silence

    3:01

    Simon and Garfunkel had become interested in folk music and the growing counterculture movement separately in the early 1960s. Having performed together previously under the name Tom and Jerry in the late 1950s, their partnership had since dissolved when they began attending college. In 1963, they regrouped and began performing Simon's original compositions locally in Queens. They billed themselves Kane & Garr, after old recording pseudonyms, and signed up for Gerde's Folk City, a Greenwich Village club that hosted Monday night performances. In September 1963, the duo performed three new songs, among them The Sound of Silence, getting the attention of Columbia Records producer Tom Wilson, who worked with Bob Dylan. Simon convinced Wilson to let him and his partner have a studio audition, where a performance of The Sound of Silence got the duo signed to Columbia.

    The song's origin and basis remain unclear, with multiple answers coming forward over the years. Many believe that the song commented on the John F. Kennedy assassination, as the song was released three months after the assassination. Simon stated unambiguously in interviews however, I wrote The Sound of Silence when I was 21 years old, which places the timeframe firmly prior to the JFK tragedy, with Simon also explaining that the song was written in his bathroom, where he turned off the lights to better concentrate. The main thing about playing the guitar, though, was that I was able to sit by myself and play and dream. And I was always happy doing that. I used to go off in the bathroom, because the bathroom had tiles, so it was a slight echo chamber. I'd turn on the faucet so that water would run (I like that sound, it's very soothing to me) and I'd play. In the dark. 'Hello darkness, my old friend / I've come to talk with you again'. In a more recent interview, Simon was directly asked, How is a 21 year old person thinkin' about the words in that song? His reply was, I have no idea. According to Garfunkel, the song was first developed in November, but Simon took three months to perfect the lyrics, which he claims were entirely written on February 19, 1964. Garfunkel once summed up the song's meaning as the inability of people to communicate with each other, not particularly internationally but especially emotionally, so what you see around you are people unable to love each other.

    To promote the release of their debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., the duo performed again at Folk City, as well as two shows at the Gaslight Café, which went over poorly. Dave Van Ronk, a folk singer, was at the performances, and noted that several in the audience regarded their music as a joke.'Sounds of Silence' actually became a running joke: for a while there, it was only necessary to start singing 'Hello darkness, my old friend...' and everybody would crack up. Wednesday Morning, 3 AM sold only 3,000 copies upon its October release, and its dismal sales led Simon to move to London, England. While there, he recorded a solo album, The Paul Simon Songbook (1965), which features a rendition of the song, titled The Sounds of Silence.

    The original recording of the song is in D♯ minor, using the chords D♯m, C♯, B and F♯. Simon plays a guitar with a capo on the sixth fret, using the shapes for Am, G, F and C chords. The vocal span goes from C♯4 to F♯5 in the song.

    A cover version was released by American heavy metal band Disturbed on December 7, 2015. A music video was released on December 7, 2015. Their cover hit number one on the Billboard Hard Rock Digital Songs and Mainstream Rock charts, and is their highest-charting song on the Hot 100, peaking at number 42. It is also their highest-charting single in Australia, peaking at number 4.

    David Draiman sings it in the key of F#m. The chord progression is F#m, E, D, A. The first two verses are almost an octave lower than the original and jumped up an octave for the last three verses. His vocal span goes from E2 to A4 in scientific pitch notation.

    In April 2016, Paul Simon endorsed the cover. Additionally, on April 1, Simon sent lead vocalist Draiman an email praising Disturbed's performance of the rendition on American talk show Conan. Simon wrote: Really powerful performance on Conan the other day. First time I'd seen you do it live. Nice. Thanks. Draiman responded, Mr. Simon, I am honored beyond words. We only hoped to pay homage and honor to the brilliance of one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Your compliment means the world to me/ us and we are eternally grateful. As of September 2017, the single had sold over 1.5 million digital downloads and had been streamed over 54 million times, estimated Nielsen Music.The music video has over 353 million views on YouTube, while the live performance on Conan has over 75 million, making it the most watched video from the show.

    Ku pamięci Pawła Adamowicza... Niech przemówi muzyka, wszak powinna łączyć nie dzielić, być poza podziałami i polityką. Spoczywaj w pokoju... Witaj ciemności, moja stara przyjaciółko...

    The Sound Of Silence

    Hello darkness, my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone,
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp,
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence.

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more.
    People talking without speaking,
    People hearing without listening,
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence.

    Fools said I, You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows.
    Hear my words that I might teach you,
    Take my arms that I might reach you.
    But my words like silent raindrops fell,
    And echoed
    In the wells of silence.

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made.
    And the sign flashed out its warning,
    In the words that it was forming.
    And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls.
    And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

    Lyrics:

    When you're weary, feeling small,
    When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
    I'm on your side. When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found,
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.

    When you're down and out,
    When you're on the street,
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you.
    I'll take your part.
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around,
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down.

    Simon & Garfunkel - Bye Bye Love

    2:53

    Live Recording from Ames, Iowa.

    Bye Bye Love is a popular song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant and published in 1957. It is best known in a debut recording by The Everly Brothers, issued by Cadence Records as catalog number 1315. The song reached #2 on the US Billboard Pop charts and #1 on the Cash Box Best Selling Record charts. Ray Charles included his version of the song on his 1962 album Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. The song is ranked #207 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

    Rory Blackwell and his Blackjacks recorded it the UK in 1957 issued by Parlophone/EMI.

    The Everly Brothers' version also enjoyed major success as a country song, reaching No. 1 in the spring of 1957. Its country success was concurrent with another country version recorded by Webb Pierce, at the time one of country music's top entertainers. Pierce's version reached No. 7 that summer.

    The duo Simon & Garfunkel recorded it live for their 1970 Bridge Over Troubled Water album. A goof may be heard in the sixth line of the third refrain, where one or both singers begin singing happiness as in the second line of the refrain but correct themselves to sing sweet caress. The listener hears something akin to Bye bye ha-sweet caress.

    George Harrison recorded this song for his 1974 album Dark Horse with slightly changed lyrics. As a joke on the title and theme of the song, the Harrison version includes backing vocals by Eric Clapton and Patti Boyd, who had divorced Harrison due to a romance with Clapton.

    The song was featured in the film All That Jazz, sung by Ben Vereen and Roy Scheider, with some lyrics rewritten to fit that story. A cover of the song by the Scottish band The Proclaimers is heard in the film Bye Bye Love.

    Bye Bye Love was also included in the Ditty Bops album Moon Over The Freeway, published in 2006.

    Trini Lopez included his version of the song on his On The Move album for Reprise Records.

    Maybe even ´Bye Bye Love´ is intended as a sly reference to the breakup of the duo.

    Lyrics:

    Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
    Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
    Remember me to one who lives there.
    She once was a true love of mine.

    On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.
    Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.
    Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain
    Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

    Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
    Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
    Without no seams nor needle work,
    Then she'll be a true love of mine.

    On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves.
    Washes the grave with silvery tears.
    A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
    Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
