I Believe Music Screams the Words We're Afraid to Speak

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 608 People

    Truths

    I do think that music can contain some very wise phrases and real truths.  The subjects that can be sung are sometimes too contraversal to just talk about to a mass audience.  I feel it is an art that has a place in society.

    The Show Must Go On

    Not long before Freddie Mercury died, Brian May presented him with some words to the song "The show must go on" ("My soul is painted like the wings..."), and they looked at eachother, knowingly. There were things that couldn't be said, but in a musical universe, it was allowed...
