I also love Gregorian chants.
I love Tears for Fears - Mad World ))
Thanks for sharing Cryscat.
I love music from the 70ies/80ies (born 79)!
Billy Joel - We didn´t start the fire,
And also jazz and such ... I used to listen to Nina Simone a lot in my 20ies.
And one piece that really touches me: We´re in the money (from the movie Golddiggers) - I like Fred Astaires Version best.
I hardly like any of the now popular songs.. wonder if I´m going to be re-born some day and I´ll just remember classic rock from the last century... lol
It is said that Music is the universal language. I agree! Pythagoras connected music with mathematics, and where geometry can be representative for the construction of the three dimensional physical universe. However, the Creator created Time to go along with, Height, Length, and Width, so as to have a moving image of the Eternal. Therefore Time becomes the fourth dimension of the physical universe. Time is not to be confused with Motion, as Time is only the measurement of Motion, to determine speed, and like motions for physical positioning, or shape, etc.. However, Time is also misunderstood and abused by many advocates of the afterlife, when it comes to the Eternal world, where logically, and in very truth, must be totally non existent there. Because Time is associated with physical decay of matter, which is the process of matter becoming and unbecoming a specific and unique composition, relating to form, fit, and function of the limitless combinations of the aggregation and segregation of some, yet scientifically unknown, building block, a fundamental particle of matter called the God-particle for now, many afterlife "experts" argue that a similar process occurs in the Astral realm. These will argue for the existence of Time and Matter in the spiritual world, only they argue that Time there is not measured in the same way as here, and they term matter there as spiritual matter. These also argue that things work in the Astral much like in the physical, only giving the matter and work in the Astral a more durable nature, making the matter there purer, but still physical-like in nature, and changing in Astral Time. However, many expert advocates of logic, who address the term and understanding of the essence of Eternity, will argue that time and matter is non existent in the Eternal Kingdom/Plane, or as some refer to it, Astral realm/Spirit world. Both sides will agree that some form of energy is present in the Eternal world, but just what that is, is apparently beyond description, or understanding. What we all can agree on is, that music moves and inspires us all, if the tune resonates with our inner soul, and which, energetically, leads many to a frenzy of bodily contortions, which some call dancing, and many others have their souls equally energetically, moved to other worlds, visions, wakeful dreaming, and various states of bliss, whether physically/spiritually rising to the heavens, or just meditating motionless, in a very relaxed state. In other words, the universe is the musical expression of the One Consciousness, or God, or a Being Creator, or whatever else we choose to address this One eternal Entity. The self-moved Universal Mind created and moves the universe, seen or unseen, and must then needs to be harmonious, if it is music. And anything that is not harmonious is not music, and does not resonate with truth. Truth is the "key" that makes the Creator's music harmonious to our soul's ears.
Plato, on the shoulders of others before him, distinguished the physical world from the eternal one by the correct use of temporal terms. The physical world was, and will be, but never is. The eternal always is, and never was, nor ever will be other than the ever present, IS. In other words, what is ever changing, such as it was, and then becomes something else, is not the eternal reality, as only reality is immovable truth. And reality says that the eternal never had a beginning by becoming, and it will never end, as it never began, because it has always been without a beginning, unlike the physical world.
To connect this with the music theme, there is an Italian song which really moves me, and is one authored and sung by Eros Ramazzotti, which expresses the universal language of Music, and is titled, Musica E'. Although it requires the knowledge of the Italian language, and culture, to really appreciate all the lyrics, as I do not believe that a literal translation in English will suffice for understand the profoundness of the message. Nevertheless, the music and the voice of Andrea Bocelli should make this song appreciated by the soul, even if the lyrics are not understood as they should, since the soul is incarnate currently, and does not recall that it knows and understands everything. Basically, it makes music eternal just reading the title, as the title is simply expressing this IS, of Plato. Music IS = Musica E'. The link is the song version on which Bocelli joins Eros in the singing. And within the lyrics we have this; "A world without music cannot even be imagined." There are many other American/English musical pieces expressing the importance and the universality of music, and which stirs the soul. I would venture to say that each culture and language, past and present, must have/have had similar songs affirming music to be the universal language of the eternal, Universal Mind. Jim Morrison of the Doors, in a song said, When the music is over turn off the lights. Just what Jim really meant, I leave it up to each of you, as I'm certain that my understanding of this song is a very direct and personal one for me.
So many music artists from my youth are dying now. The latest being Tom Petty. Here is my fav. duet he did with Stevie Nicks, way back in 1981
I've hesitated to post on this thread because what is now often offered as music appears to me as noise or simply screaming words. I've lost interest in this area since I lost abilities to share in the production of what use to be important to me, singing, whistling, and playing my guitar. Most of the music and personalities that resonated with me are from quite a few years ago. I use to listen to 1950's music while driving, but the stations that played it moved up a decade as the years went by. Although Elvis was not my idle, I enjoyed his music. Older music like Music box Dancer (or here), Greensleeves, or with lyrics that I was not then aware of, and later songs like A Walk in the Black Forest. And all of Chet Adkins, especially while I was learning guitar.
And, I have to include Dave Brubeck's Take Five, to other string "competitions "like "Dueling Banjos" and even "Foggy Mountain Breakdown".
Some of Simon and Garfunkel produced some music that still sends shivers down my spine, like The Sound of Silence and Bridge over Troubled Waters.
Oh My, I could really get into this, sorry.
When I was young, my dad used to play some Flatt and Scruggs (on a reel to reel ) He wasn't from Appalachia, but I think his roots go back there. Just recently watched a few documentaries about Appalachians and Bluegrass with the Scots Irish and African roots it has. Very interesting. It kind of calls to me, as well.
