The Sound of Silence - Kina Grannis

The Sound of Silence by American singer-songwriter Kina Grannis is currently around the number 70 chart placing on the UK ITunes chart today. It was used this week as the background music for a commercial for the BBC Wallander TV programme. It is one of several cover versions of songs that were heard through advertisements, sport games or movies on television and have been downloaded through ITunes and have appeared for just a week or two recently on the lower part of the top 100 songs in the UK charts. The Sound of Silence is a lovely faithful version of the classic Simon & Garfunkel song and it has previously featured on a 2011 re-release deluxe version of her 2010 album Stairwells
