Simon & Garfunkel - The Sounds of Silence (1965?)

Simon & Garfunkel present their song with these words: “This is about the inability of people to communicate with each other; not particularly internationally but especially emotionally. What you see around you is people who are unable to love each other. This is called the Sounds of Silence.”

The Wall consists of silence and hidden silence, or as Simon & Garfunkel sings:
people talking without speaking
people hearing without listening
people writing songs that voices never share
and no one dared
disturb the sound of silence
