JIMM 15 - Music, the Elixir for Our Souls

Mood: Refreshed
Listening to: JIMM 15 - Music, the Elixir for Our Souls

Journey Inside My Mind show 15 (24.9 MB, 27:15) showcases some more great music.

For a frame of reference, here are some thoughts about the greatness of music:

  • "There are things that music can do that language could never do, that painting can never do, or sculpture. Music is capable of going directly to the source of the mystery. It doesn't have to explain it. It can simply celebrate it." -- Marsha Norman
  • "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." -- Aldous Huxley
  • "Music is a universal language of emotion, mood, and message." -- Dan Johnson, Jr. (Hey! How'd he get in here?)
  • "The greatest moments of the human spirit may be deduced from the greatest moments in music." -- Aaron Copland, composer of "Fanfare for the Common Man"
  • "Music is edifying, for from time to time it sets the soul in operation." -- John Cage

As always thanks go out to the folks who help make this possible:
  • Audacity, a bit unstable at times, but it gets the job done. Just remember to save early and often!
  • podsafe music network
  • and their partnership with the Internet Archive
  • Anyone else I may have left out
