The most awesome thing in the world. Music is just math applied to a string or key or air being compressed into a series of pipes through a mouthpiece coming out as a vibration. Without music, I swear like nearly everyone would be depressed, FM radio would be a bunch of commercials, sorta like “Paid Programming” on channel 227 where they’re like selling yoga tutorial DVDs or something like SlimFast or Liptozene as a pill that stresses you out so you eat less; Though the commercials would be more pointless and try to be funny. Without music, I wouldn’t have much to do (I’m a guitarist) and would be so bored I would write in my blog way more often. Music is one of the 10 most important inventions like ever. MUSIC!!!
