The Sound of silence
version of this song by Simon and Garfunkel can be found in Die Mundorgel
. I don't suppose this song can be called folk-music by the purists, and I'm sure Simon and Garfunkel would never have regarded themselves as folk singers, but what the heck, I enjoy singing it so there! Considering myself modestly to be a real folk singer (that is to be a musically uneducated lout), then I'm in the process of turning it into a folk song.
