Music is human fuel.  To feel it washing over us in person, like the voltage that frees us from the concepts of restraints or walls or time.  It's not a form of escapism, but rather, a route inward.  It is primal.  Inspiring.  Raw.  Beautiful.  Music is art.  We're always electrified by the art we love.

There is no reason we should not sing, and keep singing, until the flowers start to grow, until the mind begins to clear, until the heart of a thousand children beats ever so much stronger, and the angels in far-off heaven stop and smile, thinking: they are at it again, they are still singing, all will be well, as long as they can keep singing.
