    I just noticed--is there any reason you linked the original (acoustic) version (released as The Sounds of Silence) rather than the 1965 remix? The remix version added the instrumentation that made the song a worldwide bestseller. If I'm voting on the acoustic version, I'm changing my vote.

    The original '64 version is what was nominated. The '65 remix is the same song with an overdub and reverb, performed without S&G's knowledge or consent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sound_of_Silence So the song technically belongs to the first half of the sixties.

    I nominated the 1964 original, but not the acoustic version posted in this thread.

    This was my original nomination, which shows a different video:

    It's actually the same version, from the same 1964 album.

    yes
    I can't see the video in the first post of the thread, but if it the same as this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kae_LoslXSk

    then it definitely is the one and only original version, and the same as in T-Dogz_AK47's post (which I, miraculousely, can see)

    I actually prefer the original slightly. But either way, it's a tremendous song.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that. But it's a good thing that someone had the foresight to remix it, b/c the original version was such a flop that S&G broke up. It was only after the remix version was released and became a hit that the act took off and became what we know today as Simon & Garfunkel. Without the remix, who knows what would have happened.

    Anyway, it was such a close call for me, that this really does tip me back to The Eagles. I won't ask you to change my actual poll vote, though, b/c it was my fault for not realizing it was not the version I was used to.

    If it comes down to it, though, my "stated vote" for tiebreaker purposes will be Hotel California.

    I nominated both songs, so I'm going to chew them over a bit more before I cast my final vote. It's a tough choice.

    on the contrary, it would be awkward if one of the songs in the final bracket won be a big margin; it would mean something had gone desperately wrong on previous stages )))))

    I think he was referring to me casting a poll vote one way, but then stating a different vote for the tie-breaker. I agree, that would be a bit...off.

    Just in case it gets tied again, I went with SoS.

    If we go into overtime, a touchdown on the first possession wins it but if it's a field goal the other tune gets a chance to tie it right?
