The Sound of Silence
 is a song by folk music duo Simon & Garfunkel. Written in February 1964 by Paul Simon in the aftermath of the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, the song propelled the group to mainstream popularity. An initial version preferred by the band was remixed and sweetened, and has become known as "the quintessential folk rock release". In the U.S., it was the duo's second most popular hit after "Bridge Over Troubled Water". 

In 1999, BMI named "The Sound of Silence" as the 18th most-performed song of the 20th century. In 2004, it was ranked #156 on Rolling Stone‍‍ '​‍s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, one of the duo's three songs on the list. The song is now considered "the quintessential folk rock release".

On March 21, 2013, the song was added to the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress for long-term preservation.

The Lyrics of "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 walk alone.
Narrow streets of cobble stone.
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 dare.
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 rain-drops fell.
And echoed in the wells of silence.
And the people bow and prayed.
To the neon God they made.
And the sign flash 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.
