    Its really weird watching that with the news ticker going along the bottom – like “silent night/7 o’clock news” for a whole new generation. Such a prophetic song for America and the world:

    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    Apparently the official programme had him down to play Bridge over troubled water. Much as its a great song, i’m so glad he chose to play this instead.
