Music is worth talking about.

"Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form." —Plato (source and date unknown)

"Music is the healing force of the world / It's understood by every man, woman, boy, and girl" —Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, "I Love Music," 1975, as performed by the O'Jays

"Music is the naked cry of the human heart longing to be with God. Yo!" —Dion, at the 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Concert on October 29, 2009, at Madison Square Garden in New York City


  1. This would be a great one to compile, but the only two I can think of off the bat are "Music" and "Into the Groove" by Madonna.

  2. Good picks! The only other one that comes to my mind right now is the Velvet Underground's "Rock and Roll":

    "Then one fine morning she puts on a New York station / You know, she couldn't believe what she heard at all / She started dancing to that fine, fine music / You know her life was saved by rock and roll"
