If all the people of the world could agree on one perfect song that is the most wonderful song of all time what would it sound like? What would be the meaning? Would it even have one? Would there be words and a voice? There are so many options of sounds and stylings throughout time and space. Anything that creates sound can be considered an instrument and each person could play them in a different way so how would we choose? How could we ever possibly agree? Let me digress to religions, cultures, and governments. The world will never agree that any single one of them is perfect. Some will be more popular, more powerful, more effective than others but that doesn't mean it's the best for all people. I think maybe the best song is the one already playing. We can't hear it because we are all so busy making our part of the music. What would happen if we could step back and take in everything around us? Maybe we would all agree that together, without doing anything but live our lives, we have created it. The perfect song. Or maybe it would just be a loud horrendous, intolerable noise that we can only survive by exposing ourselves to small portions. Perspective I guess.
