    it seems that Justin wasn't part of this cover so I took his name down :)

    Ever so often a "sound" moves us to a place We all sense-to a spiritual connection We all seek. This is a pure example of the power of music & why it is has a value not measured in money $. 4 LA

      disturbed is the only cover I've ever heard that does Simon and Garfunkel any justice. this soulless attempt was terrible from a musical standpoint. the rhythm is sloppy and the harmonies are all over the place. if you want to take on a masterpiece like this, you need to put in the effort.

    I was not reading the description and when the first picture appeared I thought _"FUUUUCK, Ivan's Childhood!?!? Someone still remembers this gem?"_.

    Well, someone else said it here before, but a big THANK YOU for this alone. And yes, this song fits so perfectly well to this movie, both in lyrics and tone.

    I just had the nightshift from hell and now I am sitting here, smiling the widest smile on earth. I swear, if my ears were not in the way, my upper head would simply fold back. It's true, it's the little things that make life worthwile and by some strange twist, you've just made a grumpy old bastard a bit more happy. Life is strange, isn't it?

    this is a great cover by james blake, especially since justin vernon can 'almost' be heard...i'm a die hard fan of justin's since his solo days and this video is still misleading with the text in your video, stefano. :(

    Mi sembra di sognare. Soltanto oggi ho scoperto questa magnifica cover di Blake e poi mi ritrovo questo spettacolare montaggio. Mai avrei pensato di trovare così tante belle cose insieme: The Sound of Silence, James Blake e Tarkovskij. Ancora complimenti per il video. Hai un iscritto in più.
