‘The Sound Of Si­lence’

Total Film - - Tf List - by Si­mon & Gar­funkel

In one of the great­est un­cer­tain end­ings in cin­ema, young lovers Dustin Hoff­man and Katharine Ross flee from her wed­ding, jump aboard a bus, and race to the back, where they sit, smil­ing, con­tem­plat­ing their fu­ture to­gether. Slowly, the smiles be­gin to fade, Paul Si­mon’s sin­is­ter-sweet gui­tar trick­les in, and with that dev­as­tat­ing open­ing line (see be­low) we start to won­der about their Happy Ever Af­ter too.

MEM­O­RABLE LYRIC “Hello dark­ness, my old friend/

I’ve come to talk with you again”
