Music speaks through lyrics to tell stories. It touches hearts and minds because it connects them to life experiences – good or sad moments.
I hardly ever remember lyrics as my full attention focuses on the music alone. I always wondered why but don’t bothered to find an answer. People have a preferred music, poem, pet, hobby, etc. I may be the odd one out as I cannot make up my mind to choose only one of each of anything.
If we talk about music, there are many styles of music that I like. However, there is one ‘aria’ that, since I heard it for the first time, has entered through my ears and taken all my senses like a powerful tsunami, never leaving me.
It is the most beautiful music I have ever heard. It communicates deeply with my soul. It evokes harmony, and always makes me stop thinking, focusing entirely on what it makes me feel. I know which sound comes first or next from the instruments played; and the violins are center stage.
This music is the Aria de la Suite number 3 by the genius of J.S. Bach*.
Here is ‘The One” I know by heart.

* Johann Sebastian Bach b.1685 d.1750 Bach came from a long line of musicians, although he was the first to become famous outside of his hometown of Eisenach. He was a gifted organist. He wrote new pieces for the organ for each service, destroying the used ones. Countless Bach compositions have been lost because he saw them as nothing but scrap. His work was very unique, and his use of intertwining melodies and the fugue are trademarks of his genius.
