Disturbed: Delight in the Unexpected
TGIF and welcome to this week’s Observations from the Tub. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen a YouTube video I posted a couple weeks ago featuring the heavy metal band Disturbed (front man David Draiman). They performed a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.” Since I fall into the category of Least Likely Metal Fan of All Time, my adoration of this video strikes an odd chord. I love David Draiman’s compelling vocals, the way he ramps it up as the song progresses, and I’m haunted by his interpretation—to the point that I spent time on YouTube listening to more of the band’s music. Somehow I’ve slipped from Least Likely Metal Fan of All Time to Fan of Disturbed. Go figure.
I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.
To make it fun, I’m posting the original Simon & Garfunkel rendition of “Sound of Silence” along with the version by Disturbed. Night and day, Buttercup. See what you think.
Oh, and please leave a comment sharing something in which you found unexpected delight. I love a good serendipity story. 🙂
Here are the videos! Enjoy!
