“Song brings of itself a cheerfulness that wakes the heart to joy,” exclaimed Euripides

Songs play very important role in our lives, so much so that when we hear a particular tune, our memory goes overdrive unconsciously remembering something that happened. That song doesn’t have to be the best song at that time. It is just that was the melody that was being played again and again or over and over at that given time for that memory..
I remember my brother, Jonathan used to play Queen’s Greatest Hits including Bohemian Rhapsody early in the morning on weekends on full volume when I was still living in the Philippines. He would gleefully sing Fat Bottomed Girls to us, Marilou and I, forcing us to get up. To these days, when I hear that song, I remember fondly (oh yes!!!) those memories of not having a good lie-ins during the weekends.
There are so many songs that embrace vignettes of my life. Some songs make me cry, some make me nostalgic for the good old days, some make me laugh, some bring a smile to my face, some force me to unconsciously sway to the sound, some make me sleepy, some bore me to tears, some make me vibrant, some annoy me and some make me fall in love all over again.
Music does bring out every imaginable feeling and reaction under the sun.
As H Purcell said :
“If music be the food of love,
sing on till I am fill’d with joy;
for then my list’ning soul you move
with pleasures that can never cloy,
your eyes, your mien, your tongue declare
that you are music ev’rywhere.”
Here are more quotes about Music, hope they may be of inspiration to you all:
Music is the medicine of an afflicted mind, a sweet sad measure is the balm of a wounded spirit; and joy is heightened by exultant strains.
Sweet music! sacred tongue of God.
—Charles G. Leland.
Music is the fourth great material want of our natures,—first food, then raiment, then shelter, then music.
When griping grief the heart doth wound,
And doleful dumps the mind oppress,
Then music, with her silver sound,
With speedy help doth lend redress.
Some of the fathers went so far as to esteem the love of music a sign of predestination; as a thing divine, and reserved for the felicities of heaven itself.
—Sir W. Temple.
I think sometimes could I only have music on my own terms; could I live in a great city, and know where I could go whenever I wished the ablution and inundation of musical waves, that were a bath and a medicine.
Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.
There’s music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if men had ears.
The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
O, pleasant is the welcome kiss
When day’s dull round is o’er;
And sweet the music of the step
That meets us at the door.
Not the rich viol, trump, cymbal, nor horn,
Guitar, nor cittern, nor the pining flute,
Are half so sweet as tender human words.
Is there a heart that music cannot melt?
Alas! how is that rugged heart forlorn.
Music cleanses the understanding, inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself.
—Henry Ward Beecher.
Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners; she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.
Explain it as we may, a martial strain will urge a man into the front rank of battle sooner than an argument, and a fine anthem excite his devotion more certainly than a logical discourse.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music is the child of prayer, the companion of religion.
Had I children, my utmost endeavors would be to make them musicians.
Next to theology I give to music the highest place and honor. And we see how David and all the saints have wrought their godly thoughts into verse, rhyme, and song.
