Sung to the tune of Sound of Silence - Parody by Don Caron. A year later, inspired by the Byrds’ version of Mr. Tambourine Man (a Dylan song), Tom Wilson, the producer of the Simon & Garfunkel album decided to release The Sound of Silence again with some amped up guitar parts. This new version was an instant hit. The two got together back in the States and set out to create a follow-up hit, which they did, with I am a Rock. Both songs were released on an album titled Sounds of Silence in January of 1966.
Sound of Silence’ has more melodic, genius, simple power than I ever realized. As the years go by, there’s something extraordinarily hooky about that simple melody – I didn’t know that. I knew it was a good-sounding record when it emerged. It was the sixth song Paul ever wrote. The Sound of Silence’ just knocked me out the first time I heard it, recalled Gorgoni in Studio Stories. The song was already great in its original form – it just needed that extra touch to put it over the top and turn it into a hit. I remember listening to Paul’s acoustic guitar part through the headphones and basically just copping it. I had this Epiphone Casino, which had the right sound. People used to think it was a 12-string electric like the Byrds – it’s not, it’s just me and Vinnie playing together mixed together onto the same track

Album – Album, is a collection of audio recordings issued as a single item on CD, record, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century, first as books of individual 78rpm records, vinyl LPs are still issued, though in the 21st century album sales have mostly focused on compact disc and MP3 formats. The audio cassette was a format used from the late 1970s through to the 1990s alongside vinyl, an album may be recorded in a recording studio, in a concert venue, at home, in the field, or a mix of places. In September 1963, the duo performed three new songs, among them The Sound of Silence, getting the attention of Columbia Records producer Tom Wilson, who worked with Bob Dylan. Simon convinced Wilson to let him and his partner have a studio audition, the songs origin and basis remain unclear, with multiple answers coming forward over the years.
