Music calls to the soul.
Be it Mozart or Metal,
Bach or The Beatles,
Soul or Salsa,
it is the essence of humanity.
Each heart has its own rhythm;
we each sing our own song, 
too often discordant and out of tune.
But when we join as one
we make a beautiful noise,
as if Beethoven's Ode to Joy
is the soundtrack of the universe.
