Musical quotes by Lewis Grossberger
#1. ...it was not simply a matter of musical taste; whether you preferred the Beatles or [the Rolling] Stones said much about your personality and character. People who were happy, intelligent, well-adjusted, popular, clean, decent and punctual tended to be Beatles fans. Those who were evil, cretinous, scabby, drug-ridden, filthy, criminal perverts liked the Stones.
As for your author, I personally take no side in the controversy, remaining strictly neutral. #Quote by Lewis Grossberger
Musical quotes by Louis Schwartzberg
#2. Eighty percent of the information we receive comes through our eyes. And if you compare light energy to musical scales, it would only be one octave that the naked eye can see, which is right in the middle. #Quote by Louis Schwartzberg
Musical quotes by Julie Klausner
#3. Frances McDormand is my favorite actor. I don't know if that's relevant. But she's a person who plays people. In other words, not everything has to be an over-the-top Broadway musical to get my attention, but it certainly helps. #Quote by Julie Klausner
Musical quotes by Brian Ferneyhough
#4. The Western musical canon came about not merely by accumulation, but by opposition and subversion, both to the ruling powers on whom composers depended for their livelihoods and to other musics. #Quote by Brian Ferneyhough
Musical quotes by James Galway
#5. Scales played in the correct musical way are very exciting and rewarding. #Quote by James Galway
Musical quotes by Karen Quan
#6. I'm gonna go put my earplugs in and practice piano for hours until my fingers bleed. I practice the piano with the focus of Helen Keller - and nothing can distract me from the scent of the music.
-Karen Quan and Jarod Kintz #Quote by Karen Quan
Musical quotes by John Petrucci
#7. The Majesty guitar symbolizes the very reason why I am so proud to be a Music Man artist. I had the idea for this guitar a couple of years ago but it is because of their innovative spirit and dedication to the art of guitar building that it is now a reality. I am so grateful that I am able to collaborate with the best guitar company on the planet and so incredibly proud that together we have created what is to me, the perfect musical instrument for guitar players. I really hope you get a chance to play one and am confident that you will feel the same! #Quote by John Petrucci
Musical quotes by Dwayne Johnson
#8. I'll do a musical. An ass-kickin' musical! #Quote by Dwayne Johnson
Musical quotes by Charles Gounod
#9. Musical ideas sprang to my mind like a flight of butterflies, and all I had to do was to stretch out my hand to catch them #Quote by Charles Gounod
Musical quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#10. It was in this apartment, also, that there stood against the western wall, a gigantic clock of ebony. It's pendulum swung to and fro with a dull, heavy, monotonous clang; and when the minute-hand made the circuit of the face, and the hour was to be stricken, there came from the brazen lungs of the clock a sound which was clear and loud and deep and exceedingly musical, but of so peculiar a note and emphasis that, at each lapse of an hour, the musicians of the note orchestra were constrained to pause, momentarily, in their performance, to harken to the sound and thus the waltzers perforce ceased their evolutions; and there was a brief disconcert of the whole gay company; and, while the chimes of the clock yet rang, it was observes that the giddiest grew pale, and the more aged and sedate passed their hands over their brows as in confessed revery or meditation #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Musical quotes by Bryan Beller
#11. Bassist Steve Uccello's Symmetria is filled with cool and unique sounds, textures, and musical ideas, evoking an imagined atmosphere of open spaces influenced by Ry Cooder's desert dusty roads as much as anything a bassist could conjure up. It fits a mellow, contemplative mood perfectly. #Quote by Bryan Beller
Musical quotes by Joe Pass
#12. You can't think and play. If you think about what you're playing the playing becomes stilted. You have to just focus on the music I feel, concenctrate on the music, focus on what you're playing and let the playing come out. Once you start thinking about doing this or doing that, it's not good. What you are doing is like a language. You have a whole collection of musical ideas and thoughts that you've accumulated through your musical history plus all the musical history of the whole world and it's all in your subconscious and you draw upon it when you play #Quote by Joe Pass
Musical quotes by Richard Corliss
#13. Innocent parents might have thought that a musical cartoon version of a fairy tale would be a child's ideal introduction to movie magic. Yet Walt Disney taught moral lessons in the most useful way: by scaring the poop out of the little ones. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Musical quotes by Chris Cornell
#14. Due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences, I am permanently leaving the band Audioslave. I wish the other three members nothing but the best in all of their future endeavours. #Quote by Chris Cornell
Musical quotes by John Roecker
#15. Roecker sure is a romantic about certain things, like art and music, though you might not know it from watching Live Freaky! Die Freaky!, his claymation musical retelling of the Helter Skelter Charlie Manson saga. #Quote by John Roecker
Musical quotes by Theodore Bikel
#16. I am first, and foremost, an actor. That's what I am. To me, a song is a mini-drama. My musical ability informs the actor as well because it gives me a sense of timing that non-musicians don't have. So, one hand washes the other. #Quote by Theodore Bikel
Musical quotes by Booker Little
#17. My own feelings about the direction in which jazz should go are that there should be much less stress on technical exhibitionism and much more on emotional content, on what might be termed humanity in music and the freedom to say all that you want. #Quote by Booker Little
Musical quotes by Ravi Shankar
#18. In our culture we have such respect for musical instruments, they are like part of God. #Quote by Ravi Shankar
Musical quotes by Pat Metheny
#19. One of the things jazz has always excelled at is translating the reality of the times through its musical prism. #Quote by Pat Metheny
Musical quotes by Kerstin Gier
#20. Passersby looked at us curiously. In the porch, Mr. Whitman held the church door open for us. "Hurry up, please," he said. "We don't want to attract attention." No, sure, there was nothing likely to attract attention in two black limousines parking in North Audley Street in broad daylight so that men in suits could carry the Lost Ark out of the trunk of one of the cars, over the sidewalk, and into the church. Although from a distance the chest carrying it could have been a small coffin . . . The thought gave me goose bumps.
"I hope at least you remembered your pistol," I whispered to Gideon.
"You have a funny idea of what goes on at a soiree," he said, in a normal tone of voice, arranging the scarf around my shoulders. "Did anyone check what's in your bag? We don't want your mobile ringing in the middle of a musical performance."
I couldn't keep from laughing at the idea, because just then my ringtone was a croaking frog. "There won't be anyone there who could call me except you," I pointed out.
"And I don't even know your number. Please may I take a look inside your bag?"
"It's called a reticule," I said, shrugging and handing him the little bag.
"Smelling salts, handkerchief, perfume, powder . . . excellent," said Gideon. "All just as it should be. Come along." He gave me the reticule back, took my hand, and led me through the church porch. Mr. Whitman bolted the door again behind us. Gideon forgot to let go of my hand once we were inside the c #Quote by Kerstin Gier
Musical quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#21. Thinking should be like musical meditation. Has any philosopher pursued a thought to its limits the way Bach or Beethoven develop and exhaust a musical theme? Even after having read the most profound thinkers, one still feels the need to begin anew. Only music gives definitive answers. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Musical quotes by Frank Zappa
#22. Basically I'm in the idea business
whether it's a musical idea or a spoken idea ... If you wind up with a political system that wants to put idea men out of business, then you have worry on your hands. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Musical quotes by Janina Gavankar
#23. I want to do a musical so bad. I don't care what it is. I'm not picky. I just want to do a musical. I'm shameless, but it's true. #Quote by Janina Gavankar
Musical quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#24. The true use of music is to become musical in one's thoughts, words and actions. One should be able to give the harmony for which the soul yearns and longs every moment. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in one's own life. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Musical quotes by Steve Vai
#25. Most people are fascinated to see someone play an instrument in an inspired way. We are moved by witnessing musical brilliance, and it was this notion that led me to purchase the GuitarTV domain 10 years ago. #Quote by Steve Vai
Musical quotes by Christina Ricci
#26. I mean, I sing. But I don't think I'm a good enough singer to do any kind of musical. #Quote by Christina Ricci
Musical quotes by Zac Efron
#27. I wore goofy hats to school and did musical theater. Most people thought I was a dork. But if you have a sense of humor about it, no one can bring you down. #Quote by Zac Efron
Musical quotes by Lisa Randall
#28. A musical, like most religions, provides the audience or followers with a sense of belonging. Religious services, on the other hand, with their staged performances, invigorating songs, popular wisdom and shared experience, are almost a form of community theater. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Musical quotes by Sarah Dessen
#29. Which is this magical listening station, whereupon all musical worth is decided? #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Musical quotes by Carl Gardner
#30. My musical background in Tyler, Texas was quite outstanding. Uh, I grew up with, uh, with high school teachers who were in bands, they could play music. And we had a nine piece band there in Tyler, and I joined them when I was about, oh, 15 years old and traveled all over Texas in that band, playing for the elite oil people. Hah. And um, I was making about 50 bucks a night, and uh, it taught me, they taught me how to find my timing and to learn the songs that I wanted. #Quote by Carl Gardner
Musical quotes by Christian Borle
#31. Musical theater is often seen as a lesser form of acting, although I don't see it that way. #Quote by Christian Borle
Musical quotes by Jaron Lanier
#32. If there's any object in human experience that's a precedent for what a computer should be like, it's a musical instrument: a device where you can explore a huge range of possibilities through an interface that connects your mind and your body, allowing you to be emotionally authentic and expressive. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Musical quotes by Casey James
#33. Because my musical background is so diverse, it lends me to have very much my own style and it helps me to relate to the music as I'm going to play it. I just write. And if it comes out country, it's a country song. The funny thing is, I write all across the board. I just write what hits me at the time. #Quote by Casey James
Musical quotes by John Mayer
#34. I am beginning to know what it feels like to be a woman. To have people looking at you all the time. And I'm sorry ladies, I had no idea! But people are looking at me all the time. It's like I have musical boobies! #Quote by John Mayer
Musical quotes by Paul Henry Lang
#35. What the music offers in a good opera is something that comes from a region that precedes the concrete concept of drama and, strictly speaking, stands outside the world of drama. Opera does not permit men to appear in nakedly logical acts, for the music dissolves feelings and thoughts into melodies and rhythms, harmonies and counterpoints, which in themselves have no conceptual meaning. Thus in opera objective situations may very well become entirely subjective expressions. Because of its paradoxical nature opera is capable of paradoxical effects; it can express purely sensuously the most profound abstractions, and the musical drama, exerting a mass effect far more than does the spoken drama, is much more primitive as drama than the spoken theatre; it must render conflict and character in immediate symbols. #Quote by Paul Henry Lang
Musical quotes by Mandy Patinkin
#36. I have never been asked to be in a movie musical. Other than 'Yentl,' which I didn't sing in. #Quote by Mandy Patinkin
Musical quotes by John Calvin
#37. Musical instruments in celebrating the praises of God would be no more suitable than the burning of incense, the lighting of lamps, and the restoration of the other shadows of the law. The Papists therefore, have foolishly borrowed, this, as well as many other things, from the Jews. Men who are fond of outward pomp may delight in that noise; but the simplicity which God recommends to us by the apostles is far more pleasing to him. Paul allows us to bless God in the public assembly of the saints, only in a known tongue (1 Corinthians 14:16) What shall we then say of chanting, which fills the ears with nothing but an empty sound? #Quote by John Calvin
Musical quotes by Amanda Peet
#38. I would do a musical, but I can't sing. #Quote by Amanda Peet
Musical quotes by Seth MacFarlane
#39. If I were to do a musical, I think I would rather make a film musical. #Quote by Seth MacFarlane
Musical quotes by David Mitchell
#40. The words 'maybe' and 'perhaps' are literally the same - the flavor is the same, the educational level is the same. But you just know when to use maybe and when to use perhaps. I think it's because of this: You get to know the tastes or musical tastes of words themselves, and this informs your choice, whether you use them or not. #Quote by David Mitchell
Musical quotes by Oliver Sacks
#41. I think there is no culture in which music is not very important and central. That's why I think of us as a sort of musical species. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Musical quotes by Tre Cool
#42. I had trouble fitting in, in a musical sense. A lot of drummers get sidetracked by the instrument. It can engulf you. #Quote by Tre Cool
Musical quotes by Blixa Bargeld
#43. When I started I didn't know anything about music. I came from an absolutely non-musical, non-artistic background. #Quote by Blixa Bargeld
Musical quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#44. If we cannot sing of faith and triumph, we will sing our despair. We will be that kind of bird. There are day owls, and there arenight owls, and each is beautiful and even musical while about its business. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Musical quotes by Zubin Mehta
#45. You might say that Richard Wagner was the Queen Victoria of Europe. He had musical children everywhere! #Quote by Zubin Mehta
Musical quotes by Johnny Marr
#46. Andy Rourke and I had been playing together from 14 or 15, and we had a very great musical chemistry. Andy's just a very respected and unusual musician. #Quote by Johnny Marr
Musical quotes by Barbara Quick
#47. The sky on a clear night is a living, pulsating thing. The stars are like musical notes turned to light, and, like notes, they shimmer and swell and fade and fall. The painters have never captured it - but they never will until some painter teaches his colors to dance. #Quote by Barbara Quick
Musical quotes by Henry Jackman
#48. Some directors are comfortable with music. Some feel comfortable discussing and talking and operating in a musical language. Others don't engage so much. #Quote by Henry Jackman
Musical quotes by Glenn Tipton
#49. There are right and wrong reasons for doing solo projects, and this album was done for the right reasons. At the time there was no Judas Priest and I certainly wasn't going to hang my hat up on my musical career. #Quote by Glenn Tipton
Musical quotes by Madeleine Thien
#50. Many nights, Ai-ming said, ignoring my question, her father's music pulled her from sleep. Sparrow, she slowly pieced together, had been one of Shanghai's most renowned composers. But after the Conservatory was shut down in 1966 and all five hundred of its pianos destroyed, Sparrow worked in a factory making wooden crates, then wire, and then radios, for two decades. Ai-ming heard him humming fragments of music when he thought no one was listening. Eventually she came to understand that these fragments were all that remained of his own symphonies, quartets and other musical works. The written copies had been destroyed. #Quote by Madeleine Thien
Musical quotes by Harold Prince
#51. The musical has always been in jeopardy - until - or was in jeopardy until it was realised that it is probably the safest living theatre art form. #Quote by Harold Prince
Musical quotes by Stephen Sondheim
#52. Take a play that you like but you think is flawed, and see if you can improve it and turn it into a musical. Then make up your own story. #Quote by Stephen Sondheim
Musical quotes by Steve Jobs
#53. It is piracy, not overt online music stores, which is our main competitor. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Musical quotes by Mardi Oakley Medawar
#54. The workroom radio, tuned to FM 88.9, emitted Muddy Waters's throaty warbling. A rez station, WOJB did its best to hit every level of musical taste. Absolute bite-ya-in-the-ass blues was aired only during the wee hours.

Tracker's favorite time and music. #Quote by Mardi Oakley Medawar
Musical quotes by Edgard Varese
#55. Our musical alphabet is poor and illogical. #Quote by Edgard Varese
Musical quotes by Scarlett Johansson
#56. I love musicals, I started acting because I wanted to be in a musical. #Quote by Scarlett Johansson
Musical quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#57. There were nauseous musical instruments, stringed, grass, and wood-wind, on which St. John and I sometimes produced dissonances of exquisite morbidity and cacodaemoniacal ghastliness ... #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Musical quotes by Laura Benanti
#58. I do think musical-theater actors can get a bad rap, and I see why. There is a certain slickness - there's nothing better than an amazing musical, but an okay musical can be one of the worst times you've ever had. #Quote by Laura Benanti
Musical quotes by Dwayne Johnson
#59. I've been known to have a good step or two. I'm half Samoan, you know, and part of our culture is singing and dancing daily. #Quote by Dwayne Johnson
Musical quotes by David Levithan
#60. It's almost scary how amateur I am when it comes to musicals - I'm a musical goer, but I am not as obsessed with musicals as perhaps some of my theatrical friends are. #Quote by David Levithan
Musical quotes by Billy Sherwood
#61. I grew up in a very musical family, my father was a musician and a big band leader and made records. #Quote by Billy Sherwood
Musical quotes by Sophie Thompson
#62. I am an opera virgin; I'd far prefer to see a musical such as 'Guys and Dolls.' #Quote by Sophie Thompson
Musical quotes by Natalie MacMaster
#63. I am a very musical person. I love music, and I don't just love Cape Breton fiddling, although it's my favorite. #Quote by Natalie MacMaster
Musical quotes by Rachel Trachtenburg
#64. I'm learning to play piano. And also the musical saw. #Quote by Rachel Trachtenburg
Musical quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#65. But I'm not adverse to the idea of Torch Song as a musical. It would just be different. Because the play will always be there exactly as it was, and in a musical you could tell a lot of the story through songs. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Musical quotes by Phil Ochs
#66. There is an urgent need for Americans to look deeply into themselves and their actions, and musical poetry is perhaps the most effective mirror available. Every newspaper headline is a potential song. #Quote by Phil Ochs
Musical quotes by Louise Westerhout
#67. are important sources of emotional, creative and spiritual nourishment for me. It seems there is never enough space at our kitchen table; the children need a surface to draw on, between the flowers and fruit bowls, and sometimes it feels like a game of musical chairs to seat everyone #Quote by Louise Westerhout
Musical quotes by Franz Liszt
#68. Oral musical traditions are rooted in assured and scrupulous faith. #Quote by Franz Liszt
Musical quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#69. Dark draperies hung upon the walls. The general furniture was profuse, comfortless, antique, and tattered. Many books and musical instruments lay scattered about, but failed to give any vitality to the scene. I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of sorrow. An air of stern, deep, and irredeemable gloom hung over and pervaded all. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Musical quotes by Alfred De Musset
#70. Poets represent love as sculptors design beauty, as musicians create melody; that is to say, endowed with an exquisite nervous organization, they gather up with discerning ardor the purest elements of life, the most beautiful lines of matter, and the most harmonious voices of nature. There lived, it is said, at Athens a great number of beautiful girls; Praxiteles drew them all one after another; then from these diverse types of beauty, each one of which had its defects, he formed a single faultless beauty and created Venus. The man who first created a musical instrument, and who gave to harmony its rules and its laws, had for a long time listened to the murmuring of reeds and the singing of birds. Thus the poets, who understand life, after knowing much of love, more or less transitory, after feeling that sublime exaltation which real passion can for the moment inspire, eliminating from human nature all that degrades it, created the mysterious names which through the ages fly from lip to lip: Daphnis and Chloe, Hero and Leander, Pyramus and Thisbe.

To try to find in real life such love as this, eternal and absolute, is but to seek on public squares a woman such as Venus, or to expect nightingales to sing the symphonies of Beethoven. #Quote by Alfred De Musset
Musical quotes by Mansur Almia
#71. Love is sensational. Characters of this heart touching world are musical. So always practices to say, " I LOVE YOU". #Quote by Mansur Almia
Musical quotes by Laura Osnes
#72. After high school, I went to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point for a year, and I studied musical theatre. By that point, I was like, 'This is what I want to do.' #Quote by Laura Osnes
Musical quotes by Bill Laswell
#73. Engineering producers who don't play and have technology as a background may be the reason why there's a lot of cold non-musical music, for lack of a better description. #Quote by Bill Laswell
Musical quotes by Rachel Bloom
#74. All I listened to until age 18 growing up was musical theater. I liked the escapism of it. #Quote by Rachel Bloom
Musical quotes by Eberhard Weber
#75. If there is a good musical reason, I think it might draw more attention and sell, though it is not guaranteed. To make a record without a musical reason, you have to either be a pop star who sells automatically or just be lucky. #Quote by Eberhard Weber
Musical quotes by George M. Cohan
#76. As a composer I could never find use for over 4 or 5 notes in any musical number, and as a playwright most of my plays have two acts because i couldn't think of an idea for the third act. #Quote by George M. Cohan
Musical quotes by Bob Brookmeyer
#77. This is positively not an album to play while you do a doctorate thesis on "Bergson, Webern and Charles the Vicious, Paradox or Ambiguity?" #Quote by Bob Brookmeyer
Musical quotes by Rick Riordan
#78. And the seventh hero ... Leo Valdez?"
Nico raised his eyebrows. "You remember his name?"
"Of course! He invented the Valdezinator. Oh, what a musical instrument! I barely had time to master its major scales before Zeus zapped me at the Parthenon. If anyone could help me, it would be Leo Valdez. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Musical quotes by Jarod Kintz
#79. Am I the only guy that holds a flute of champagne like it's a musical instrument? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Musical quotes by Colin Firth
#80. I thought I was managing my expectations, but on hearing the news I discovered new and unfamiliar vocal tones. Perhaps I should do another musical. #Quote by Colin Firth
Musical quotes by Jeremy Jordan
#81. What I love about doing musical work is that it heightens the emotion. #Quote by Jeremy Jordan
Musical quotes by Peter Shaffer
#82. I looked on astounded as from his ordinary life he made his art. We were both ordinary men, he and I. Yet from the ordinary he created Legends
and I from Legends created only the ordinary! #Quote by Peter Shaffer
Musical quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#83. I love the American musical for the simplicity of emotion that gets expressed. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Musical quotes by John Sebastian
#84. First of all, I think that is true, if you are a musician, particularly on the come, that you do have to end up in one of these musical centers, some way, to be viable, saleable and so on. #Quote by John Sebastian
Musical quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#85. Sounds - possibly musical - heard in the night from other worlds or realms of being. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Musical quotes by George Takei
#86. I marched back then - I was in a civil-rights musical, Fly Blackbird, and we met Martin Luther King. #Quote by George Takei
Musical quotes by Ned Sublette
#87. New Orleans is of such key importance to American music because historical factors combined to make it the strongest center of African musical practice in the United States, and, cliches aside, that practice really did travel up the Mississippi and did spread overland. #Quote by Ned Sublette
Musical quotes by Neil Tennant
#88. At one time musical theater, particularly in the '40s and '50s, was a big source of pop songs. That's how musical theater started, really - it was just a way of linking several pop songs for the stage. #Quote by Neil Tennant
Musical quotes by Loni Anderson
#89. I started acting when I was 10, doing musical theater. I was a brunette at that time. I was always cast in all the exotic parts. #Quote by Loni Anderson
Musical quotes by Marcel Proust
#90. Maybe it was because of his ignorance of music that he had been capable of receiving so confused an impression, the kind of impression that is, however, perhaps the only one which is purely musical, immaterial, entirely original, irreducible to any other order of impression. An impression of this kind is, for an instant, so to speak, sine materia. No doubt the notes we hear then tend already, depending on their loudness and their quantity, to spread out before our eyes over surfaces of varying dimensions, to trace arabesques, to give us sensations of breadth, tenuousness, stability, whimsy. But the notes vanish before these sensations are sufficiently formed in us not to be submerged by those already excited by the succeeding or even simultaneous notes. And this impression would continue to envelop with its liquidity and its "mellowness" the motifs that at times emerge from it, barely discernible, immediately to dive under and disappear, known only by the particular pleasure they give, impossible to describe, to recall, to name, ineffable - if memory, like a laborer working to put down lasting foundations in the midst of the waves, by fabricating for us facsimiles of these fleeting phrases, did not allow us to compare them to those that follow them and to differentiate them. And so, scarcely had the delicious sensation which Swann had felt died away than his memory at once furnished him with a transcription that was summary and temporary but at which he could glance while the #Quote by Marcel Proust
Musical quotes by Derek Bailey
#91. In so far as I listen with interest to a record, it's usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. It's a bit like jigsaw puzzles. Emptied out of the box, there's a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colours, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything
intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Music's like that."
From "Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation" by Ben Watson, Verso, London, 2004, p. 440. #Quote by Derek Bailey
Musical quotes by Charles Hazlewood
#92. The rest of my family are obsessed by 'The X Factor:' I'm intrigued by it, although its musical values are far away from mine, like a cup of tea with 400 lumps of sugar in it. There's something very strange about Simon Cowell's lips, isn't there? #Quote by Charles Hazlewood
Musical quotes by Stephen Schwartz
#93. Let the green girl go! #Quote by Stephen Schwartz
Musical quotes by Charles Schlueter
#94. It's the process, not the result. #Quote by Charles Schlueter
Musical quotes by Eugene Ormandy
#95. I don't get into politics, general or musical, but just call me if you get jury duty. Even in New Jersey I was able to help somebody. #Quote by Eugene Ormandy
Musical quotes by Alexander Borodin
#96. As a composer seeking to remain anonymous I am shy of confessing my musical activity. This is intelligible enough. For others it is their chief business, the occupation and aim of life. For me it is a relaxation, a pastime which distracts me from my principal business, my professorship. I love my profession and my science. I love the Academy and my pupils, male and female, because to direct the work of young people, one must be close to them. #Quote by Alexander Borodin
Musical quotes by Alan Watts
#97. How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself anything less than a god. #Quote by Alan Watts
Musical quotes by Mike Stud
#98. I didn't have musical upbringing. I never listened to music growing up, thinking "I want to make my own music". I just listened to music for pleasure. #Quote by Mike Stud
Musical quotes by Fabiola Gianotti
#99. Musical harmony is based on physical principles, while in cooking, ingredients must be weighed out with precision. At the same time, you have to be able to invent because if one follows the same recipe all the time, you never create anything new. #Quote by Fabiola Gianotti
Musical quotes by Robert Moog
#100. I had been building electronic musical instruments since I was a kid. #Quote by Robert Moog
Musical quotes by Joe Hill
#101. In truth, Jude suspected that Danny had no particular musical preferences, no strong likes or dislikes, and that the radio was just background sound, the auditory equivalent of wallpaper. #Quote by Joe Hill
Musical quotes by Henri Rabaud
#102. Musical compositions, it should be remembered, do not inhabit certain countries, certain museums, like paintings and statues. The Mozart Quintet is not shut up in Salzburg: I have it in my pocket. #Quote by Henri Rabaud
Musical quotes by Elton John
#103. Tina Turner gave me the highway blues. #Quote by Elton John
Musical quotes by Page Hamilton
#104. People are always going to have favorite albums or songs and you know that's more the listener's personal bias than basing it on anything musical or actual. I'm the same way as a listener. #Quote by Page Hamilton
Musical quotes by John Fogerty
#105. I think at times the very strong feelings I have about my country coincide with my musical ability, and I'm able to actually turn it into music, a song or even hopefully a memorable song, sometimes. You may find it surprising, but I'm a very intense, proud American. I love being an American. #Quote by John Fogerty
Musical quotes by Jeremy Denk
#106. If there's one thing I feel very strongly about, it's that there shouldn't be a distinction between pianists who play Ligeti and those who play Chopin. It might seem that they involve different skill sets, but I don't think that's true: whether playing Ives or Bach or Beethoven, you must bring the same imagination, the same sensitivity, and an ability to deal with same kinds of musical problems. The method behind my madness, anyway, is to keep plugging away at this idea. #Quote by Jeremy Denk
Musical quotes by Brett Somers
#107. My musical director, Mark Cherry, is the most wonderful person who ever lived on God's good green Earth. He's my director, he does the arrangements. Really, he does everything - including certain janitorial chores! #Quote by Brett Somers
Musical quotes by Tim Heidecker
#108. My dad is a very quick-witted, sarcastic, dry, humorous guy, whereas my mom's very silly, and that side of the family is very musical. #Quote by Tim Heidecker
Musical quotes by John Cage
#109. I believe the use of noise to make music will increase until we reach a
music produced through the aid of electrical instruments which will make
available for musical purposes any and all sounds that can be heard. #Quote by John Cage
Musical quotes by John Green
#110. I almost do. i'd love to live in his musical cartoon world, where witches like maura get vanquished with one heroic word, and all the forest creatures are happy when two gay guys walk hand-in-hand through the meadow, and gideon is the himbo suitor you know the princess can't marry, because her heart belongs to the beast. i'm sure it's a lovely world, where these things happen. a rich, spoiled, colorful world. maybe one day i'll get to visit, but i doubt it. worlds like that don't tend to issue visas to fuckups like me. #Quote by John Green
Musical quotes by Alex Trebek
#111. My musical development stopped when Frank Sinatra died. #Quote by Alex Trebek
Musical quotes by Bing Crosby
#112. I think popular music in this country is one of the few things in the twentieth century that have made giant strides in reverse. #Quote by Bing Crosby
Musical quotes by Nick Blaemire
#113. In terms of theater itself, no story is too strange or method of telling it too impossible these days. In many ways, musical theater has caught up with straight theater in that it's allowed more surreality and breaking of form, and that's really exciting to me - the challenge is getting people to produce those shows. #Quote by Nick Blaemire
Musical quotes by Merrell Fankhauser
#114. When my band MU landed on Maui in 1973 we were greeted by a wonderful group of peace loving brothers & sisters who we immediately formed a bond with. We had two instant roadies, Spider & Richard, who helped with every move of our musical equipment. We settled into our house on the edge of the rainforest that eventually became a portable studio. We started rehearsing and booked the Lahaina Civic Auditorium for a full moon concert starring MU and a local band The Space Patrol. #Quote by Merrell Fankhauser
Musical quotes by Mary Lou Williams
#115. I wonder what an agent would do if he had to travel with the band he's booking. #Quote by Mary Lou Williams
Musical quotes by Thomas Beecham
#116. The sound of a harpsichord – two skeletons copulating on a tin roof in a thunderstorm. #Quote by Thomas Beecham
Musical quotes by Daniel Handler
#117. The Edith Head Trio, I would say, would be even less of a musical career than playing the accordion, particularly because I played the accordion in The Edith Head Trio. I'm very impressed by your Googling. The Edith Head Trio and another band, Tzamboni, were two bands I was in after college that played at tiny clubs to little acclaim. Our Gypsy tango version of "When Doves Cry" was our biggest hit.But we were not destined for greatness. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Musical quotes by Carmen Ejogo
#118. Coming from the U.K., I can think of so many great songs and musical moments that didn't require a belter of a voice; my favorite singer is Kate Bush and she's not a belter, or PJ Harvey ... I'm definitely more of an alternative girl. #Quote by Carmen Ejogo
Musical quotes by Sarah Brightman
#119. I can never say that I will never return to musical theatre. There may be a part in the future that I really want to do. I love plays as well. I am very open to ideas. I hope to do many things in the future. #Quote by Sarah Brightman
Musical quotes by Juliet Landau
#120. I was a professional ballerina. After becoming an actress, I did a lot of theater, which included musical theater. The first musical play I did was Murray Schisgal's 'The Pushcart Peddlers.' #Quote by Juliet Landau
Musical quotes by Sean Mahon
#121. It's very much a character-based play. Conor's writing is almost musical and paints pictures at the same time. It's a joy as an actor to be able to say the words. It's very conversational but at the same time, tells a story. #Quote by Sean Mahon
Musical quotes by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze
#122. Music acts on the whole of the organism like a magic force which suppresses the understanding and irresistibly takes possession of the entire being. To insist on analysing this force is to destroy its very essence. #Quote by Emile Jaques-Dalcroze
Musical quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#123. Much of the colony's musical experimenting was, quite consciously, concerned with what might be called "time span." What was the briefest note that the mind could grasp - or the longest that it could tolerate without boredom? Could the result be varied by conditioning or by the use of appropriate orchestration? Such problems were discussed endlessly, and the arguments were not purely academic. They had resulted in some extremely interesting compositions. But it was in the art of the cartoon film, with its limitless possibilities, that New Athens had made its most successful experiments. The hundred years since the time of Disney had still left much undone in this most flexible of all mediums. On the purely realistic side, results could be produced indistinguishable from actual photography - much to the contempt of those who were developing the cartoon along abstract lines. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Musical quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#124. Conflict is the essential core of a free and open society. If one were to project the democratic way of life in the form of a musical score, its major theme would be the harmony of dissonance. #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky
Musical quotes by Teddy Thompson
#125. I'm a hybrid-genre person, which a lot of people find confusing. I grew up listening to American country music and rock n' roll made between 1955 and 1959. The Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry were my first musical loves and are still what I am most moved by. Roy Orbison came a little bit later. #Quote by Teddy Thompson
Musical quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#126. Scriptural interpretation is properly an ecclesial activity whose goal is to participate in the reality of which the text speaks by bending the knee to worship the God revealed in Jesus Christ. Through Scripture the church receives the good news of the inbreaking kingdom of God and, in turn, proclaims the message of reconciliation. Scripture is like a musical score that must be played or sung in order to be understood; therefore, the church interprets Scripture by forming communities of prayer, service, and faithful witness. #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Musical quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#127. Music fills the infinite between two souls #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Musical quotes by Ludwig Van Beethoven
#128. Music is the electric soil in which the spirit thinks, lives and invents. All that's electrical stimulates the mind to flowing surging musical creation. I am electrical by nature. #Quote by Ludwig Van Beethoven
Musical quotes by Eric San
#129. Eventually we want to do a puppet musical with turntables in the orchestra pit. #Quote by Eric San
Musical quotes by Jeremy Denk
#130. I've learned a lot from being a chameleon, sort of adopting the musical personalities of who I was playing with. #Quote by Jeremy Denk
Musical quotes by Corinne Heline
#131. Man is a musical being. His origin is in the spoken Word. By sound was he sustained and by music he evolved. One day he will recognize music as a vital factor in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual evolution of the whole human race. #Quote by Corinne Heline
Musical quotes by Ashley Tisdale
#132. I loved performing in the 'High School Musical' movies - that didn't seem like work - but the gym felt like torture! #Quote by Ashley Tisdale
Musical quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#133. Hell is full of musical amateurs: music is the brandy of the damned. May not one lost soul be permitted to abstain? #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Musical quotes by Roy Ayers
#134. Soul has no musical geographical or racial boundaries. #Quote by Roy Ayers
Musical quotes by Harold Prince
#135. I got successful awfully quick, and I wanted it ... But I do think there is responsibility to move the musical theater form forward. I think you always have to be aware of the work that came before and build on that. #Quote by Harold Prince
Musical quotes by Elvis Mitchell
#136. In Moulin Rouge, Baz Luhrmann takes the most thrilling moments in a movie musical-the seconds before the actors are about to burst into song and dance, when every breath they take is heightened-and makes an entire picture of such pinnacles. #Quote by Elvis Mitchell
Musical quotes by John Cheever
#137. I dream that someone in space says to me: So let us rush, then, to see the world. It is shaped like an egg, covered with seas and continents, warmed and lighted by the sun. It has churches of indescribable beauty, raised to gods that have never been seen; cities whose distant roofs and smokestacks will make your heart leap; ballparks and comfortable auditoriums in which people listen to music of the most serious import; to celebrate life is recorded. Here the joy of women's breasts and backsides, the colors of water, the shapes of trees, athletes, dreams, houses, the shapes of ecstasy and dismay, the shape even of an old shoe, are celebrated. Let us rush to see the world. They serve steak there on jet planes, and dance at sea. They have invented musical instruments to express love, peaceableness; to stir the finest memories and aspirations. They have invented games to catch the hearts of young men. They have ceremonies to exalt the love of men and women. They make their vows to music and the sound of bells. They have invented ways to heat their houses in the winter and cool them in the summer. They have even invented engines to cut their grass. They have free schools for the pursuit of knowledge, pools to swim in, zoos, vast manufactories of all kinds. They explore space and the trenches of the sea. Oh, let us rush to see this world. #Quote by John Cheever
Musical quotes by Kirke Mechem
#138. Only become a musician if there is absolutely no other way you can make a living. #Quote by Kirke Mechem
Musical quotes by Duke Ellington
#139. It is becoming increasingly difficult to decide where jazz starts or where it stops, where Tin Pan Alley begins and jazz ends, or even where the borderline lies between between classical music and jazz. I feel there is no boundary line #Quote by Duke Ellington
Musical quotes by Stacy Horn
#140. Then, only a minute later, my mood & my world changed. I hit my first correct soprano 2 note. I don't even know where it came from, but I got it right. It was a D. The soprano 1 to my right was singing the B flat above me. I love that glorious high B flat & I should have been apoplectic with envy about not getting to sing it myself, but instead I was pinned to that D, vibrating with a wondrous musical rapport I'd never felt before. I was feeling harmony. Not just singing it, but physically feeling it. It was a rush. You don't experience this when you're singing the melody. I was completely in the power of the sound we were making together & I just stood there, afraid to move, thinking, Don't end, don't end, don't end. #Quote by Stacy Horn
Musical quotes by John Gallagher, Jr.
#141. I've always loved musical theatre. I've always been a big kind of closeted musical theatre nerd. I really have always dreamed about being able to do musical theatre. #Quote by John Gallagher, Jr.
Musical quotes by Angela Carter
#142. It was a sensitive and musical dog. #Quote by Angela Carter
Musical quotes by John Lurie
#143. My musical education started in the limelight, because I found myself surrounded by real musicians, but after my career had taken off. #Quote by John Lurie
Musical quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#144. If you truly loved someone and they couldn't be in your life you won't hurt them. You will pray for them. You will hope that they find their happiness and place in this world. You will want them to have the best life because love isn't about possession, fear or desperation. When you have a grasp on eternity you don't need to feel time is running out. Time is all you have. Love isn't a game of musical chairs--grab a partner and sit down. It is a search for the right fit for your soul and life purpose. In a life that never ends you will either find the one that sees you as much as you see them, 0r who knows? Maybe, if there are such things as soulmates, God will introduce you, but keep you far enough apart, until each of you fulfill something more important for your growth or God's plan. Regardless, when you can face eternity alone you will know what true love is and that letting go is not an insult to your soul. You can smile because the person you loved has your blessings of protection with them and God has your best interest also in mind. You will find that person to complete you because God wants you to, as much as you do. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Musical quotes by Bertie Carvel
#145. I came to musical theatre from straight acting, and a lot of my friends have a real prejudice about musical theatre - one I probably shared. #Quote by Bertie Carvel
Musical quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#146. Death doesn't discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes, and we keep living anyway.... #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Musical quotes by Marisa Miller
#147. I love 'Guitar Hero' because I love music, but I have no musical ability whatsoever. So I love a game that makes you feel like you're a rock star. #Quote by Marisa Miller
Musical quotes by Jenefer Robinson
#148. Because people's experiences differ, what they hear in the music will be different, and how they relate it to broader life experience will also be different.
Furthermore, idiosyncrasy in musical interpretation is something to be celebrated rather than condemned. [...] [W]e should think of the score not as the work itself but rather as a useful tool to help us arrive at our individual interpretation of a piece. #Quote by Jenefer Robinson
Musical quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#149. More and more do I feel, as I advance in life, how little we really know of each other. Friendship seems to me like the touch of musical-glasses
it is only contact; but the glasses themselves, and their contents, remain quite distinct and unmingled. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Musical quotes by Virgil Thomson
#150. I never learned to verbalize an abstract musical concept. No thank you. The whole point of being a serious musician is to avoid verbalization whenever you can. #Quote by Virgil Thomson
Musical quotes by Paul Klee
#151. The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions. #Quote by Paul Klee
Musical quotes by Thomas Beecham
#152. Movie music is noise. It's even more painful than my sciatica. #Quote by Thomas Beecham
Musical quotes by Ismail Kadare
#153. Shiny musical instruments wailed, their mouths open like lilies. #Quote by Ismail Kadare
Musical quotes by Jennifer Love Hewitt
#154. I would definitely say that I am a very big movie musical fan in general, and I try to see every one that I possibly can - and 'Glee' every week. #Quote by Jennifer Love Hewitt
Musical quotes by Jim Butcher
#155. I've got blisters and muscle cramps in places not meant for the touch of anything but a beautiful woman," Max spat back sullenly. "I've bitten my tongue so many times in the past three days that I whistle in musical chords when I exhale. And the smell isn't ever going to come out of my armor, I just know it. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Musical quotes by Joan Jett
#156. A lot of people ask me why I don't expand and explore other musical areas, but I like the plain three- and four-chord rock-and-roll that I call the the semi-blues. #Quote by Joan Jett
Musical quotes by Kurt Masur
#157. I worked on scores. I went to the musical library in Berlin which is very famous. I discovered that we had scores of Beethoven, printed scores of Beethoven, that are full of mistakes. Not the wrong or false notes, but the wrong dynamic, understandable things. #Quote by Kurt Masur
Musical quotes by Dayananda Saraswati
#158. The greatest musical instrument given to a human being is the voice. #Quote by Dayananda Saraswati
Musical quotes by Gareth Gates
#159. I love musical theatre because I love doing a live performance eight times a week. #Quote by Gareth Gates
Musical quotes by Kip Winger
#160. Rock stardom and all that stuff like that was never like my main M.O., my main M.O. is musical growth, and if I become a rock star in the process, great! #Quote by Kip Winger
Musical quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#161. I actually may do a musical next year ... not one that I've written; one that I may star in. Plus my concert and other people's work and all of a sudden you've got a very full life. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Musical quotes by Kid Rock
#162. A lot of people told me that I'm committing musical suicide with my sound. #Quote by Kid Rock
Musical quotes by Joel Selvin
#163. Seskin has the gift of song ... his voice has a natural lilt that can't be learned. The combination of musicianship and repertoire make for a rich and satisfying musical experience. #Quote by Joel Selvin
Musical quotes by James Fenton
#164. The composer does not want the self-sufficiency of a richly complex text: he or she wants to feel that the text is something in need of musical setting. #Quote by James Fenton
Musical quotes by Anthony Burgess
#165. The essence of pop stardom is immaturity - a wretched little pseudo-musical gift, a development of the capacity to shock, a short-lived notoriety, extreme depression, a yielding to the suicidal impulse. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Musical quotes by Thomas Beecham
#166. In the first movement alone, I took note of six pregnancies and at least four miscarriages. #Quote by Thomas Beecham
Musical quotes by Joshua Foer
#167. Finding patterns and structure in information is how our brains extract meaning from the world, and putting words to music and rhyme are a way of adding extra levels of pattern and structure to language. It's the reason Homeric bards sang their epic oral poems, the reason that the Torah is marked up with little musical notations, and the reason we teach kids the alphabet in a song and not as twenty-six individual letters. Song is the ultimate structuring device for language. #Quote by Joshua Foer
Musical quotes by David Pajo
#168. On a musical level, I do find it rewarding. It's not like I want to blow my brains out while I'm playing these songs from so long ago. I am still surprised by the way the songs are constructed - note choices, the way the arrangements are made, the way these songs are assembled. I'm still amazed at times. #Quote by David Pajo
Musical quotes by Linda Ronstadt
#169. I feel sorry for a culture that depends too much on delegating its musical expression to professionals. It is fine to have heroes, but we should do our own singing first, even if it is never heard beyond the shower curtain. #Quote by Linda Ronstadt
Musical quotes by Sun Tzu
#170. There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.
There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination
they produce more hues than can ever been seen.
There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations of
them yield more flavours than can ever be tasted. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Musical quotes by Frank Sonnenberg
#171. Life is like playing musical chairs –– you never know when the music will stop." ~ #Quote by Frank Sonnenberg
Musical quotes by Luka Sulic
#172. We want to connect all these musical worlds together. We just improvise; we know straight away if its going to work or not. They're not covers - I hate the word cover. We do a transcription: mix it up, put our own spin on it. I think people will be surprised how powerful our show is. #Quote by Luka Sulic
Musical quotes by Idina Menzel
#173. I think that if you're doing a new musical, you want to have the opportunity to experiment and try things without the whole city of critics looking over your shoulder. #Quote by Idina Menzel
Musical quotes by Waylon Jennings
#174. When you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king. #Quote by Waylon Jennings

Musical quotes by Victoria Legrand
#176. Yeah, it's a lot harder to find a musical partner than a love partner. #Quote by Victoria Legrand
Musical quotes by J. D. Souther
#177. My secret heroes were Joe Morello, Ray Charles - who is, in my opinion, the most dominant figure in musical history in the 21st century - and Frank Sinatra. Those are my heroes. And as a writer, when Bob Dylan came along, it was a miracle because he gave us all permission to say anything! #Quote by J. D. Souther
Musical quotes by Mitchell Maxwell
#178. Mitchell Maxwell's Maxims
•You have to create your own professional path. There's no longer a roadmap for an artistic career.
•Follow your heart and the money will follow.
•Create a benchmark of your own progress. If you never look down while you're climbing the ladder you won't know how far you've come.
•Don't define success by net worth, define it by character. Success, as it's measured by society, is a fleeting condition.
•Affirm your value. Tell the world "I am an artist," not "I want to be an artist."
•You must actively live your dream. Wishing and hoping for someday doesn't make it happen. Get out there and get involved.
•When you look into the abyss you find your character.
•Young people too often let the fear of failure keep them from trying. You have to get bloody, sweaty and rejected in order to succeed.
•Get your face out of Facebook and into somebody's face. Close your e-mail and pick up the phone. Personal contact still speaks loudest.
•No one is entitled to act entitled. Be willing to work hard.
•If you're going to buck the norm you're going to have to embrace the challenges.
•You have to love the journey if you're going to work in the arts.
•Only listen to people who agree with your vision.
•A little anxiety is good but don't let it become fear, fear makes you inert.
•Find your own unique voice. Leave your individual imprint on the world, not a copy of someone else.
•Draw strength #Quote by Mitchell Maxwell
Musical quotes by Andrew Lloyd Webber
#179. When people ask me if musical theatre should be taught in music colleges, I reply that there is no need. All anyone needs to study is the second act of La Boheme because it is the most tightly constructed piece of musical theatre that there is. It is practically director-proof: you can't stage it badly because it just works too well. If you can write La Boheme, you can write anything. I would also recommend studying Britten's Peter Grimes. #Quote by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Musical quotes by Nick Hornby
#180. We hate Simple Minds. They were no.1 in our Top Five Bands or Musicians who will have to be shot come the musical revolution (Michael Bolton, U2, Bryan Adams, and, surprise surprise, Genesis were tucked in behind them.
Berry wanted to shoot The Beatles, but I pointed out that someone had already done it. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Musical quotes by Ben Gibbard
#181. Hall & Oates is one of the few musical groups as satisfying now as it was back then. There's something incredibly musically satisfying about their songs. Nothing has diminished my love for them. #Quote by Ben Gibbard
Musical quotes by Richard Corliss
#182. Has any movie captured a moment in social, let alone musical, history with as much acuity and joy as 'A Hard Day's Night'? #Quote by Richard Corliss
Musical quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#183. Why do you write like you're running out of time? #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Musical quotes by Todd Rundgren
#184. Sometimes you're a psychiatrist and sometimes you're a group therapist. The dynamics in between people and the misgivings sometimes that artists have when they get into the studio because they're under a different level of scrutiny. A lot of them can be insecure about it. My job is not simply to make musical determinations but sometimes to just keep people from flipping out during the process. #Quote by Todd Rundgren
Musical quotes by Frank Zappa
#185. The Ultimate Rule ought to be: 'If it sounds GOOD to you, it's bitchin'; if it sounds BAD to YOU, it's shitty. The more your musical experience, the easier it is to define for yourself what you like and what you don't like. American radio listeners, raised on a diet of _____ (fill in the blank), have experienced a musical universe so small they cannot begin to know what they like. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Musical quotes by Clemence Poesy
#186. My references, my musical tastes, everything that I like, in fact, comes from the '70s. #Quote by Clemence Poesy
Musical quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#187. The purity of unison singing, unaffected by alien motives of musical techniques, the clarity, unspoiled by the attempt to give musical art an autonomy of its own apart from the words, the simplicity and frugality, the humaneness and warmth of this way of singing is the essence of all congregational singing. This, #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Musical quotes by Anonymous
#188. The very first thing I saw at this year's Telluride Film Festival was sheer bliss. "Lava," a musical romance from Pixar Animation, was one of the shorts that traditionally precede almost every festival screening; the director was James Ford Murphy. The story, spanning millions of years in 7 minutes, starts with a lonely Hawaiian volcano who, crooning to ukulele accompaniment, yearns for "someone to lava. #Quote by Anonymous
Musical quotes by Fela Kuti
#189. It would be inadmissible if I would vent my opinion publicly. Not only could I harm the artist concerned seriously because people have so much respect for me and believe in me because of my musical accomplishments. And I could also antagonize people against me, because everyone has his own taste. We all make music, people can choose from that what they like. Every musician likes his own music the best, man. I don't want to attack that. I don't mind criticism, I can handle it, but most people can't. #Quote by Fela Kuti
Musical quotes by Michael Adam Hamilton
#190. It is fruitless to search for a single musical style, or even any blend of musical styles, that can assist all Christians with true worship. The followers of Jesus are a far too diverse group of people-which is exactly as it should be. We need, rather, to welcome any worship music that helps churches produce disciples of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Michael Adam Hamilton
Musical quotes by Gerard Cox
#191. I come from a musical family. Mom was a piano teacher for a large portion of her life, and Dad is a saxophone hobbyist who grew up in England during the heyday of Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott. I started taking piano lessons from my Mom, but it's too easy to slack off with your parent, so she passed me on to a friend of hers, where I got more motivated to play music by playing pop hits and TV themes. I did some classical training, but I was always more into the really thematic stuff. #Quote by Gerard Cox
Musical quotes by Anais Nin
#192. She is suspicious of words. She lives by her senses, by her intuition. We don't have a language for the senses. Feelings are images, sensations are like musical sounds. How are you going to tell about them? #Quote by Anais Nin
Musical quotes by Chris Pine
#193. I was never much of a musical theater guy, but I have so much more respect for the art form, the physical exertion of doing eight shows on Broadway a week, I cannot even fathom it. #Quote by Chris Pine
Musical quotes by Kelly Clarkson
#194. Everyone says I'm like the girl next door ... Y'all must have really weird neighbors #Quote by Kelly Clarkson
Musical quotes by Burning Spear
#195. I usually listen to various kind of singers. Curtis Mayfield was my favorite. James Brown, Tina Turner, queen of soul, I started to get that musical essence from that time before I even do my first song. #Quote by Burning Spear
Musical quotes by Dave Bidini
#196. The Woodshed Orchestra trade in exuberance and might, a glistening thunderslap on the hind of musical atrophy. These songs leap from disc to lap, a many-legged beast trundling with joy and vision. #Quote by Dave Bidini
Musical quotes by Harold Prince
#197. One thing is certain: We can't go back. The musical will never be the same as it was. #Quote by Harold Prince
Musical quotes by Michael Tippett
#198. My true function within a society which embraces all of us is to continue an age-old tradition. This tradition is to create images from the depths of the imagination and to give them form, whether visual, intellectual or musical. #Quote by Michael Tippett
Musical quotes by Eddie Condon
#199. They flat their fifths, we drink ours. #Quote by Eddie Condon
Musical quotes by Clayton Zane
#200. The album had to be perfect, because it was my ticket back to her, the key to my plan. I began to think that my whole life had been leading me to this piece of music. All my years of musical training, excessive partying and brotherly adventures had all been just a prelude to a boy convincing a girl that he loved her, and that would be enough. #Quote by Clayton Zane
