50 Best Music Quotes from Musicians and Famous People
Spread the love

Music has been around for most of human history. The earliest recorded musical instruments are flutes that have been carved from bones from which lateral holes were bore, which is thought to be roughly 40,000 years old. Now why would our ancestors even bother to do that? There is a significant reason why music plays a big role in our lives. Humans are social and emotional animals who love to commune, interact and convey emotions through art. Now, art in my definition is storytelling. Do you wonder why a painting that seems rudimentary fetches a huge amount of sum in the market? It’s the story. Music is no different. It tells a story; happiness, heartbreak, frustration, confusion and most of all — love.

Some say that God is in music. That’s why we feel goosebumps in church whenever good music is played. That’s why we cry when music is sad and floods us with longing and nostalgia. And why we feel happy and alive whenever “Walking on Sunshine” is on the radio.

Why does music touch our soul in a profound way? Perhaps that’s why we can’t get enough of it and we keep searching for the answer.

We offer you some of these peoples’ answers and reasons as to why music plays a great significance in their lives and what it means to them. Please enjoy and share!
