THE SOUND OF SILENCE

BEYOND AMAZING!

Made a new discovery today!

Jamie Dupuis

This is one of my favorite songs ever!

I grew up to this music.

Simon and Garfunkel’s music made it to Puerto Rico. 

I remember the many nights in my bedroom, as a teen, listening to this song.

Incredible cover, amazing instrument!

Just lay back, close your eyes and be transported to another time … a time of love and sweetness. 

Enjoy …

A man named Jamie Dupuis‘ rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” is both captivating and haunting. Jamie, a guitarist and composer from Canada, plays the song on an 18-string harp guitar, and it’s getting a lot of attention for its mesmerizing melody.

Even without his voice, it’s easy to repeat the lyrics in your head

“Hello darkness, my old friend,

I’ve come to talk with you again,

Because a vision softly creeping,

Left its seeds while I was sleeping,

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of silence”

SS2

A harped guitar is distinctive due to the addition of one or more plucked strings that float on top of the instrument. It creates a beautiful sound, especially when strummed softly like Jamie does in the video.

On top of that, his choice of song couldn’t be more fitting, especially as he sits in the midst of a peaceful forest.

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel recorded “The Sound of Silence” in 1964 and it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Paul wrote the song when he was just 21-years-old.

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

This song soothes my raw feelings. It calms me, it centers me.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one!

~Millions Of People Are Floored When Bon Jovi Sings “Hallelujah”~

Back in 2007, Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” – and it’s been seen by more than 43 million people ever since!

He sings it with such emotion, it’s hard not to tear up and press repeat over and over and over again.

It seems every performer likes to put their own spin on the classic song. Bon Jovi’s version is more raw but just as compelling.

It doesn’t hurt that the song and its lyrics are pure genius.

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

Tragedy struck in the early hours of the night

It was a night of fun and celebration at a Latin even at Pulse, a local LGBTQ night club in Orlando.

Most victims were Latino and Hispanic.

It was Pulse’s Latin Night. 

It was a horrible situation. It was a huge hit for the Latino and Hispanic communities. It was reported that 90% of the victims were Latino/Hispanic with 23 of the victims from Puerto Rico.
