A Member of Parliament caught his fellow ministers off guard when he broke out into song and delivered a memorable rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence.
The Australian Minister for Culture and the Arts, David Templeman, summarised the parliamentary year in the most original way possible.
His altered version of the Simon and Garfunkel hit mocked some of his fellow MPs and included certain highlights of the year.
Templeman, the Leader of the House, is building a reputation as a parliamentary muso as he performed a rendition of Monty Python’s The Galaxy Song last year.
Perth Now reported that the speaker, Peter Watson, followed up Templeman’s song by saying, “I distinctly remember your wife saying you weren’t allowed to do that this year.”
He then jokingly dared the next MP to try to outdo Templeman’s speech.
Briefly.co.za noted the innovative rendition got social media buzzing as some of the related tweets went viral.
Perhaps Juju will surprise us with his own version for Mzansi in the near future?
