Knicks to Play “Hello Darkness, My Old Friend” During Player Introductions

The New York Knicks have decided to play “The Sounds of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel during player introductions Director of Game Operations Miguel Vazquez announced earlier today.  Vazquez told assembled media he felt the familiar opening line hello darkness, my old friend, was more appropriate for Knicks games.  

The ultra depressing song will be replacing a remixed version of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind”.

“It’s our job to match the music with the mood of the audience,” Vazquez explained.  “For example, if we make a big three at the end of a game, we like to play a little Billy Idol’s “Mony Mony” during the time out.  But we haven’t been within single digits in a fourth quarter this year, so we really have to nail that intro music.”

The decision to play the Simon and & Garfunkel classic is actually sitting well with many Knicks fans. 

“Yes, I feel it’s very appropriate,” long-time Knicks fan Mike Bishop said.  “This is a place where I bring my kid, ya know? I can’t have him thinking the Garden is a place of joy.  No, he needs to understand when he comes into this building, it’s a somber time. A time for deep reflection and regret.  This song is perfect for properly calibrating our children.”
