15 old Bollywood songs: Let’s go back to the golden era
Music Is the language of Gods.
It’s a quote by Peter Kreeft and I Believe It is true for sure because if by just listening to something you can feel a certain emotion, fear, love, encouragement, motivation and every other emotion I do not think that there is any other thing like the music itself.
Music does not have any language barrier because if it is pleasing your ears it is music.
A listener to different genres of music, I like to listen to new artists but whenever I really want to feel the power music has I head back to my playlist of heart-melting ear pleasures.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of women.
A quote by the world’s greatest composer Beethoven.
