Disturbed “The Sound Of Silence”

This cover song came on 93.3 WMMR after the gym ( 60 minute Spin ride tribute to Prince) when arriving home.  My son and I were parked but grabbed our cells to see who was singing.  We stayed silent in the car until the music was over.   Did it pull my heart strings? Just when you believe new music is dead. Brilliant. Bravo.

This morning I played the song again for my twenty-eight year old son. ” Mom, I remember this song from the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.”

The first tract by Disturbed was performed on Conan, March 28, 2016.

The  2nd track below was  performed on 9/11 Ground Zero, by Paul Simon, Sep 11, 2011.

And the sign said,
“The words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.”
And whispered in the sound of silence

Ed Snider, founder of the NHL Philadelphia Flyers, Passes 83 years old.

It has been reported that Mr. Snider was battling cancer.

May you rest in peace.
