Peace on Earth - Relaxing "Sounds of Silence"

"Peace on Earth, goodwill towards men..." I hear this a lot during the holiday season, but it rarely seems peaceful this time of year. But we really do need the peace, we need to relax...

This video worked for me. The music comes from Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence," a huge hit back in the amazing year of 1969. I was living in a bunker in Vietnam, and my sergeant loved this song, played it over and over again. I heard it at least 30 times a day. In later years, I'd have anxious memories when hearing the song. But now, 40 years later, this video is VERY relaxing.



Enjoy...feel free to come back, "make yourself to home," and listen as often as you need to during the holidays!

Denny, I LOVE this version. I've always adored the song. It was interesting reading your experience with it, I'm so glad you overcame the negative connotations. That is impressive.
