Op de single Seven O'Clock News/Silent Night zingen Paul Simon en Art Garfunkel het traditionele kerstnummer Silent Night. De piano wordt bespeeld door Garfunkel. Tijdens het nummer wordt een nieuwsbulletin ingefaded, dat naarmate het nummer vordert steeds luider wordt. Het nieuwsbericht is niet authentiek, maar speciaal voor het nummer opgenomen. De behandelde nieuwsfeiten zijn echter wel echt en vonden plaats op 3 augustus 1966. De stem van de nieuwslezer is van diskjockey Charlie O'Donnell, die later bekend zou worden als de presentator van Wheel Of Fortune, de Amerikaanse versie van Het Rad Van Fortuin.
