Ready to fight me? Today I've decided to share another song that really helps me get involved in the desperate, dark moments of the story. I give you Sound of Silence... as performed by Disturbed.
I feel like people are really divided on this one. Let me just say I have nothing against Simon and Garfunkel. They're great! But sometimes a cover can produce emotions and carry a power that the original just doesn't. That doesn't take away from the original, it just lets you enjoy it a different way. I mean, look at Hurt as performed by Johnny Cash. That was a cover! Nine Inch Nails made that originally and there's nothing wrong with their version, but man... you can't say Johnny Cash didn't give the world something new with his cover.
I feel the same with with Disturbed's cover of Sound of Silence. That voice... that grit... that passion... it really tugs at something primal and dark within me, and that helps me really dive into some of my darker scenes.
I hope you can enjoy it, too, even if you love Simon and Garfunkel.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
