The Sound of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel with lyrics (HQ) Silence of God Poetic Perspective Don't know S&G's inspiration - but...consider... If...the narrator might be observing those who are living in a self-created silence from God? Just notice...his concern. Notice the focus of 'the people'. Mechanical motions produce...silence...Just notice & listen again asking God a twist on your usual 'why' & 'when' questions.
Material Girl -- Madonna What better way to explain capitalism than through Madonna? Seriously. This song perfectly exemplifies the thought process of Capitalists. It's all about the stuff. Everybody wants more stuff.
