The Language of Music

 

Perhaps, you will agree when I say there is no one that hates listening to music. Though song lyrics can be in different languages, music has only one language, it follows only one grammar.



There is a very popular story in our home country Nepal related to music. Once, about three hundred years ago, our prime minister traveled to Great Britain. He was invited to watch opera. When his interpreter saw him nodding head and enjoying the show, he asked, “Do you understand English, do you understand opera.” The prime minister answered, “We don’t understand birds’ language, but we enjoy birds’ songs.”

We can celebrate our life with music. In order to celebrate the importance of music, June 21 has been announced as World Music Day.

Music is good for humans as well as animals. Research has found that cows give more milk when they listen to music. Studies have suggested that babies inside mother’s womb also enjoy music.

Different people have different taste for music. Even in my household, we have different taste, from Bollywood and Nepali folk songs to rock, pop and hip-hop.

I love rock from 60s, 70s and early 80s. Some of my favorite music bands are Pink Floyd, The Doors, Deep Purple etc.

The song that is deeply rooted in my mind is “Another brick in the wall,” which is from The Wall. The Wall is a concept album from Pink Floyd. It was released in 1979.

        That’s true. I have never met a person who does not like music. However, choice of music differs from person to person.
