Christmas Stories!

7 O’Clock News/Silent Night- [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Simon & Garfunkel[/lastfm]

The haunting audio of the 7 O’Clock News, featuring updates on the war in Vietnam, give added social relevance to this Simon & Garfunkel carol.  Ironically, the song was not from a holiday album, but from their 1966 classic Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme which also included Scarborough Fair/Canticle, Homeward Bound and The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy).
