“All of my songs will have melody, and probably some form of instrumentation. I’ll come out… sing into a microphone… probably be wearing clothes…” – David Cook, American Idol Season 7, when asked what he had in store for his Top 2 performances.
The original song, long forgotten, beats in our bones, rises in each new melody — the steady rhythm of the heart, of joy and sorrow, celebration and grief. Even before they can speak, babies bounce in time to music, their small bodies recognizing the giddy happiness music makes. Song accompanies our solemn and joyful ceremonies, reminds us of our shared human experience, how we dance together on this earth.

Song lies asleep in everything
That dreams the day and night away,
And the whole world itself will sing
If one the magic word you say.
– Joseph von Eichendorff, “The Divining Rod”
“When Roxane sings she takes all the sadness from her heart and makes music out of it.”
