Watch Paul Simon Of Simon & Garfunkel Perform A Haunting Version Of Sound Of Silence At The 9/11 Memorial

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

We couldn't think of a more appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives so tragically ten years ago.

Please watch Paul Simon, of Simon & Garfunkel, perform a heartwrenching and somber acoustic performance of the classic Sound of Silence at Ground Zero today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center (above).

Powerful. Moving. And undeniably beautiful.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one that day.

May they R.I.P. and always be remembered.

    Thanks for informing us that Paul Simon is "of Simon & Garfunkel".
    Otherwise, we wouldn't know who he is.

    Re: keriblon – well knowing Perez readers, they probably don't!

    If someone doesn't know Paul Simon … are they really going to say … "Oh you mean the guy that sings with Art Garfunkel?"



  4. 4

    This guy has spent much time in the Realm Of Genius.

    Ritual sacrifice by the Global Elite,New Babylon rising.

    I was was crying my eyes out holding my son in my arms and I am not even American…what a beautiful and fitting song!

    I saw Canadian firefighters here in Montreal Canada in a formation in front of their fire house observing a moment of silence in solidarity with their brothers down south. While I am not a an American hater, I am not a fan of American arrogance and ignorance but to me N.Y.C. is a unique city that I love dearly and I was outraged when the attacks happened, and on that note : God bless America !!!

    Re: keriblon – That's exactly what I was going to write.

    The song has always been an 'acoustic' version. Personally I didn't think it sounded as good as the traditional timing.

    The sound of silence, what a suitable song for this tragic event. The american people have been silent for way too long on the truth of 9/11

    Out of all the things you could have said you choose to be a dick?

    Re: ashywashy – You look lovely, ashywashy. I would shag you any day.
    Does that sound better?

    This event was truly a despicable and evil deed. Bless the souls of all who died.

    As much of a pro as he is, I don't know how Paul didn't start crying while doing this. His voice was on the edge pretty much through the whole thing. Hangs head.



  14. 14

    I appreciate and respect that people remember those who were involved with/ lost loved ones on 9-11. What bothers me, though, is that many people seem to glorify this event. To me, that is disturbing and not touching.

    Re: OscarTheGrouch – 'Memorializing' might be a better word…but the memory is still so fresh and horrendous that it might feel that way to many as it's raw.



  16. 16

    God bless America and especially those who lives was affected by this EVIL deed.
    I love hearing Simon and Garfunkel sing this song. My parents had the CD and I downloaded
    in my Ipod. Very beautiful and haunting music. May we never forget that fateful day on 9/11. Prayers to all the families.

    The people who died dont suffer. The families of those who died suffer on this day. Those are the innocent. It's not fair yet God made it happen so it was meant to be.
    Re: keriblon – You focus on hating Perez during this time of morning.
    Re: cripbabe111 – You focus on hating Perez followers during this time of morning.
    Re: pqute – You focus on sarcasm during this time of morning.
    Re: blankita – You should be a better example for your son. Imagine the horror he felt watching his mother carry on like a baby. You damaged him with your actions… grow up.
    Re: ashywashy – sticks and stones, hypocryte.
    Re: VinnyD – You are a lemming. (look it up)
    Re: @v@ – AMEN. and Paul's voice was 'cracky' because he is 70 years old. DUH!
    Re: lolcat – stupid comment, of course the original is better. DUH!
    Re: OscarTheGrouch – You have hit the nail right on the head.

    Americans have issues. You deserve what you get for what you have given. Karma works under God. Your pain doesn't balance properly simply because your pleasures are comprised of arrogance and death. You feel a patriotic duty to hate and criticize all that is not American adn all that is different. I am sorry to say, this is only 1 day in many to come where you grieve for the loss of those whom YOU have destroyed…. Love it or hate it, this is the truth and you have to live with it.

    Rest in Peace.

    Re: FoUfCfK – I've heard him lately, and 70 or no, had noted that his voice wasn't cracky that day…so yeah, had already ruled that out. Amen.

    Re: FoUfCfK – Believe what you will, but the people on this board had about as much to do with anything as you did, so knock it off buzzkill.

    I must be the only person so sick of hearing people go on and on about 9/11. yes it was HORRIBLE, but more horrible shit happens all over the world and you don't see people crying about it for 10 years. I'm American btw.



  24. 24

    There are a few events that Americans (and others) will always remember:

    1. Where and when you heard about the 9/11 attacks.

    2. Where and when you heard about JFK's killing (might be too far in the past for your younger followers).

    3. Where and when you heard about the bombing of Pearl Harbor (definitely before my time but heard a lot about it from my parents).

    Very good, always liked his singing, either as a solo or when he was with Garfunkel.
