Parody of Simon & Garfunkel Song Captures Winter Frustration [VIDEO]
Winnipeg singer/songwriter Barltey Kives took a Simon and Garfunkel classic, 'The Sounds of Silence,' and changed the lyrics to express what we're all feeling right now. 'The Grounds for Violence' talks about the frustration of winter and endless snow and the desire for 'tomatoes in the yard.' Perfect for Mainers this year!
Kives actually posted the video last year, but it's just so appropriate for current conditions. Maybe I'm just a sucker for anything Simon-and-Garfunkel-related (I totally am!), but I like this adaptation a lot. Sick of winter? Feeling like spring is never going to get here? Watch this video. You just might be singing it to yourself as you shovel, or salt, or clean off your car. Hey.....it's better than that endless cursing you've been doing!
