The Sound Of Silence

This gave me goosebumps.

If you've been online at all today, you're probably all 9/11'd out. But take four minutes and watch this video of Paul Simon performing "The Sound Of Silence" at the World Trade Center memorial dedication this morning. It's pretty amazing.

Apparently he was scheduled to do "Bridge Over Troubled Water," but made a change at the last minute. It was a pretty inspired choice.


It was the first thing I saw this morning when I turned on the news after turning off the alarm. Fucking CNN only showed about half of it though. It reminded me of Live Aid, and when Led Zep was doing "Stairway to Heaven" (with Phil Collins on drums) and they cut away to show Sha na na --or some band like that--peforming.
