-Anon.
Engrave this Quote Precisely because we do not communicate by singing, a song can be out of place but not out of character; it is just as credible that a stupid person should sing beautifully as that a clever person should do so.

Engrave this Quote If a song's about something I've experienced or that could've happened to me it's good. But if it's alien to me, I couldn't lend anything to it. Because that's what soul is all about.

Engrave this Quote I can't stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession, let alone two years or ten years. If you can, then it ain't music, it's close-order drill or exercise or yodeling or something, not music.

-Zolt
Bicinia Hungarica, 1937
Engrave this Quote O, how wonderful is the human voice! It is indeed the organ of the soul! The intellect of man sits enthroned visibly upon his forehead and in his eye; and the heart of man is written upon his countenance. But the soul reveals itself in the voice only; as God revealed himself to the prophet of old in the still, small voice; and in a voice from the burning bush. The soul of man is audible, not visible. A sound alone betrays the flowing of the eternal fountain, invisible to man!

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Hyperion, Book III, Chapter III. Interlachen
Engrave this Quote The minstrel fell but the foeman's chain
could not break his proud soul under.
The harp he loved ne'er spoke again,
for he tore its chords asunder,
And said, No chains shall sully thee,
thou soul of love and brav'ry!
Thy songs were made for the pure and free;
they shall never sound in slav'ry.

Engrave this Quote Songs are funny things. They can slip across borders. Proliferate in prisons. Penetrate hard shells. I always believed that the right song at the right moment could change history.

Engrave this Quote The thing that influenced me most was the way Tommy played his trombone. . . . It was my idea to make my voice work in the same way as a trombone or violin not sounding like them, but playing the voice like those instrumentalists.
