A melody of time and humanity
Where to begin?
Music is such a broad category, that it's hard to find a place to start, but everytihing has to start somewhere, so lets start at the beginning.
The intro verse
"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain"
What's the point?
Music has obviously been around for a while, however, no one quite understands why. Music is used to spread ideals, to connect with others, and to tell a story. Music can tell us more about ourselves than we know. This is the true point of music.

It shapes our society and our generation. This is why I love it so much. The concept of music is so simple, yet it escapes our understanding in ways we can't even begin to comprehend.
