Da Musically Inclined Bomb

DePauw University's First Year Seminar on Writing about Music

let's see how creative i am today...

music is
the common thread in all of us
it runs through every person
connecting us in ways that cannot be explained,
cannot be understood.
nothing joins people from so many different backgrounds,
cultures, or beliefs.
it allows one to share emotions,
to bond over them, whether good or bad.
it ignites passion,
eases the soul,
expresses one's self.
music keeps us alive,
it keeps us going,
whether we realize it or not.

I liked how you tied it together as music is the common thread between all of us, because if you think about it music is based on a pulse, or rhythm or beat or whatever you may call it and so are all people, the heart beat. Just thought I would point that out, seems kind of stupid reading back on it but, whatever, you know how tired I am.

Why use punctuation in some lines and not in others? I like it though.

i love it. it's hard describe music and what it can do to a person. a definition is quite a bit easier. and yours was on the nose. that is my exact definition of music. you should definately save that piece.

This is a really cool thing to focus on, when it comes to music. One of the most important aspects of music is its versatility to appeal to everyone.
