Wonderful song Hector :tup:

I love both songs as I was brought up on both acts mate, tough call for me, in the end I voted for The Sound Of Silence. Beatles, Stones & pop music in general plus Leeds United were a truly memorable part of my childhood

Some may vote against songs by acts such as the Fab 4/Abba/Bowie/Beach Boys/Stones/etc because they don't like them. Imo all have recorded great songs in fact practically every artist/band have made at least two or three decent songs, some would disagree. All about opinions Hector

I love soul music but I doubt I'll nominate another song of that genre, in fact I'll probably be very selective with pop songs too. Great songs from the likes of Robert Wyatt, Soft Machine, Antony & the Johnsons, Little Feat, Radiohead or anything that is acquired taste is definitely out for me

Big fan of both. Of these 2 particular songs, I just slightly prefer S&G.

I am actually more of a S & G fan than the Beatles, just think that song is excellent, and slightly edges over Sounds of Silence. And it is my opinion that counts... (sorry just went into Clive mode for a moment.....)

Didn't realise Simon & Garfunkel were so popular on here

I reckon I'm in nominating one of their greatest album tracks in the next round :-D
