- Are the unique tones, rhythms, and beats most crucial to making music magical?
- Or are the emotions, meanings, and lyrics what really makes it feel right?
I don’t know the answer to those two questions, but I do know I appreciate and need both – something about certain combinations of notes and rhythms can present intense emotions, and when they paired with the right lyrics, it makes us feel a certain way.
I’ve spent too many nights crying myself to sleep listening to certain songs, but I’ve also spent many mornings feeling a lot better after doing so.
You gain some; you lose some.
