Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
