“The Sound of Silence” was originally called “The Sounds of Silence” and is titled that way on the early albums in which it appeared and on the first single release; only on later compilations was it retitled “The Sound of Silence”. Both the singular and the plural appear in the lyrics. In his book Lyrics 1964–2008 Simon has the title in the singular.
