Confounds the Science Video – Art Garfunkel played by Don Caron; Paul Simon played by Linda Gower.


Hello darkness my old friend.
It’s time for him to tweet again,
but first he’ll have to check in with fox news
‘cause that’s the only place he gets his clues.
That’s how things get planted in his brain,
where they remain,
and it confounds the science.

The problem is he’s not alone.
He tweets to people on his phone
that global warming is a giant hoax
perpetuated by the liberal folks,
and he hires people that all think the same,
that play his game
and it confounds the science.

When he talks to crowds of four
he sees ten thousand maybe more,
believing they all think he’s god on earth
and was the product of a virgin birth
and if you disagree you’re the victim of fake news
or feminist shrews
and it confounds the science.

“Fools,” says he, “you do not know
it makes me smart from so much dough.
I know exactly where the problems are.”
But his solutions are beyond bizarre
‘cause his words never quite a sentence make
and thus he spake
and it confounds the science.

No limits on pollution now.
There’s not a thing we don’t allow.
Dump the garbage in the waterway.
Spray the toxins where your children play.
All the signs say that life on the planet is headed for a downward fall.
Go to the mall,
and continue to confound the science.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORIGINAL SONG – Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel

The Sound of Silence was released in 1964 on Simon & Garfunkel’s first album release, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. The Album was a flop and only sold around two thousand copies. The song had been written a year earlier and the duo had ample opportunity to hone and perfect it before they recorded it. After the album failed the duo split up. Paul Simon relocated in Great Britain and Garfunkel went back to college.

A year later, inspired by the Byrds’ version of “Mr. Tambourine Man” (a Dylan song), 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 1965.
