What's Music? Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Music is the spirit of a culture and a mixture of ideas. When you hear popular music your senses are open to a variety of feelings. Sometimes it produces in your mind memories of a special period of your life.

Some rhythms make you happy or sad, some make you dance or reflect, some make you cry or smile. The majority of our musical heroes are personalities that reflect part of our expectations and views.

Perhaps you are connected with people like: Elvis, Robert Smith, Ricky Martin, Ozzy Osbourne, Sting, Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney, Alanis Morissette, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Keith Richards, Johnny Rottem, Bon Scott, Al Jarreau, Enrique Iglesias, George Harrison, Jim Morrison, John Lennon, Carl Cox, Stewart Copeland, Beck, Christina Aguilera, Brian Johnson, Britney Spears, Eminem, Joan Baez, Jamiroquai, Andy Summers, Jimmy Page, David Lee Roth, Segovia, Brian Adams, Gloria Estefan, Moby, Robert Fripp, Rod Stewart, Gustavo Cerati, Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton, Bjork, Ruben Blades, Carlos Santana, Alvin Lee, Chabuca Granda, Joe Satriani, Charlie Garcia, Mick Jagger, Miky Gonzales, Steve Vai, Neal Peart, Carlos Gardel, Chuck Berry, Pavarotti, Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Nicks, Shakira, etc.

A chord, a harmony, a tune, a voice, an effect, an evironmment, a drumm beat, every sound you accept in yourself is the sintetizim of our soul access as what we consider the extasis in our great feelings and when your Hi-Fi, your DVD or your MP3 reproduce your favorite music, you probably would like to be lonely for exploring that sounds.

Some songs have a special color. Some are red, some blue, others green, perhaps black or white, but whatever their color, songs can be a strong part of what you are.

A song sometimes identifies someone or something : a girlfriend, a boyfriend, a parent, a friend, an activity, ourselves, a country, etc. So music, sounds, or songs have been essential for our humanity since the first humans that ever lived on our planet.

Feel the music and sounds and you'll be great,
