"Silent Voices" is a song recorded by American singer Dionne Warwick in 1968. It is a reworked-English language version of the Italian song "La voce del silenzio" ("The Voice of Silence"), written by Paolo Limiti, Mogol and Elio Isola [it], presented at the Festival of Sanremo 1968 in the interpretation of Tony Del Monaco and the same Warwick.

The Italian single versions had "Una piccola candela" (Tony Del Monaco) and "Unchained Melody" (Dionne Warwick) both as B-sides, while the English album version was a song from the album Dionne Warwick in Valley of the Dolls (23 March 1968);[1] American author Norman Monath wrote the English lyrics, which bear no relation to the original Italian.
