Parodies’ Paradise: 1964 “Sounds of Silence” BLUE ALERT

Simon and Garfunkle’s quiet hit hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (leading the duo to reunite and hastily record their second album)… a top-ten hit in multiple countries worldwide, among them Australia, Austria, West Germany, Japan and the Netherlands… added to the National Recording Registry in the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” in 2013.

One Hot Second battles the club crowd with the angry parody “Sounds of Christmas.” Cherish the season enough to curse.
