A great thing, but made into a generic artform by every scene kid that whines about having no other way to express himself/herself. If you identify with music that's cool, but don't let if define you as a person. It's not the only thing out there, if it was, we'd all be screwed.
Me: Why do you listen to your iPod all the time?
Scene kid: Because music if my life force, and without it I'd have no other way to express myself and lose my identity as a human being.
Indefinable by words alone. It is not only something you hear but what you feel. It is something your soul can reach out and touch. It originates from all over the world since time began. Complex or simple, fast or slow, loud or soft. It is what you feel, or it could be your method of escape or it could just keep you alive.
All music is miraculous.
