A verbal art like poetry is reflective; it stops to think. Music is immediate, it goes on to become.

-W. H. Auden, "Notes On Music and Opera," The Dyer's Hand.

Music takes us out of the actual and whipers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto.


Music quickens time, she quickens us to the finest enjoyment of time.

-Thomas Mann, The Magic Mountain.

No one can get really drunk on a novel or a painting, but who can help getting drunk on Beethoven's Ninth, Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, or the Beatles' White Album?

-Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

And the night shall be filled with music,

And the cares that infest the day

Shall fold their tents like the Arabs

And as silently steal away.

Softly, Deftly,

Music shall surround you

Feel it, Hear it

Closing in around you

Open up your mind

Let your fantasies unwind

In this darkness which you know you can not fight

The darkness of the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world

Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before

Let your soul take you where you long to be

Only then can you belong to me

"The Music of the Night"


Howdy Angel, where did you hide your wings

Her love shines over my horizon she's a slice of heaven

Warm moonlight over my horizon she's a slice of heaven

Dave Dobbyns 'Slice of Heaven'


Yeah I miss the old crowd sometimes

The wild, wild nights of running

You know, a starving soul can't live like that for long

You go around in circles that just keep getting smaller

You wake up one morning and half your life is gone.

'Everything is different now' Don Henley

The smell of burning leather

As we hold each other tight

As our rivets rub together

Flashing sparks into the night

Don't Touch Me There

Why did constantinople get the works?

That’s nobody’s business but the turks

There she is

Standing on the bed

Cookie in one hand, wig on her head
