Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 6]

I don’t listen to a lot of music any more and even the people I’ve loved for years – the Nick Drakes of this world – I can’t go back to them and listen to them over and over.

David Sylvian

I’m not a music lover in the sense that I look for something to have on. I’ve never had that attitude to music.

Harrison Birtwistle

I had a brother six years older than me, so I wasn’t just listening to teenybopper stuff. My brother had the cooler music, but my parents had the Burt Bacharach, Tom Jones, the Association, the Fifth Dimension; these groups were un-cool, but I secretly loved them.

Jill Sobule

We really were a very musical family. Father managed to buy us a small pump organ, and I just loved this instrument.

Lawrence Welk

I love to talk about the drums and music. I started playing drums when I was probably six and played a lot until I was about ten or eleven years old. So, I guess five or six years where I played. I had a drum set at home, and I would just bang on it. I’d even go on the Internet and study basic beats and so forth.

Sean Berdy

My previous visits to Australia created fantastic memories, so I’m definitely looking forward to another visit. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I think every person in the entire country is nice. Seriously, I haven’t seen or heard of a mean person yet. And they love country music.

Joe Nichols

That type of autograph, pictures and apparel thievery was not part of what I grew up with. I loved the artists and their music. I would be thrilled to meet them, but the thought of getting a scribble or stealing an article of clothing never occurred or appealed to me.

Davey Havok

This music business can suck all the love out of you, all the compassion for people – you can start to think you’re better than them. But I want to continue to let people know that I’m no better and no worse, I’m just like you.

Mary J. Blige

I still absolutely love ‘The Sound of Music’ and anything with Julie Andrews in it.

Yael Naim

I love music but, of course, I’d choose love over that.

Leona Lewis

I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson. We are partners. He’s my cousin by birth and my brother in music.

Mike Love

I don’t know where people think I’m from, but I’m from Chicago. It’s really just that. People wanna romanticize it and say, ‘There’s two sides to it, and it’s a beautiful love/hate story of violence and music.’ But it’s really just a very scummy place where people don’t have respect for other people’s lives.

Chance The Rapper

I always had a love of music, from the time I was a little kid, dressing up and singing along with Michael Jackson songs.

Matisyahu

I listen to music cinematically. I think about music and how it would make me feel when it’s put to an image, a moving image, and I love it.

Before ‘Lost Boy,’ I was singing, doing six-second covers on Vine, working part-time and in school, but music was always my true love.

Ruth B

One of the things I love about music is live performance.

Cassandra Peterson

I just love making music, and that’s my focus.

Kiiara

I got my interest in Lotte Lenya and the Brecht-Weill canon from my parents. And I love classical music – I got that from my parents. I love Cole Porter – that I got from my dad.

I love singing. It makes me feel good. It’s like a release, especially when I’m singing soul music.

Michael Kiwanuka

I love when people are coming up and they’re working hard and you can see that they’re really focused on the process to their music. I really dig that. As a musician, it’s nice to see people who really care about the process.

Amos Lee

Look at music: I’ve always loved hiphop and rap, and now there’s this whole progressive movement, with De La Soul and Mos Def, Common. It’s some of the best stuff around.

Ryan Phillippe

The music of the Clovers and Spaniels and the rest was like candy to me. I couldn’t get enough; my teachers probably thought I had attention deficit disorder.

Aaron Neville

I love singing! I was a musical theater girl in high school. We were always singing and dancing around, and just doing little community theaters and high school musicals. Then, when I got to NYU, I focused more on drama.

Dave Keuning

I love knowing that people are connecting to my lyrics, my music and me.

I think Edward Sharpe’s music is counter-cultural music in the strangest sense where you have a time now where love, optimism, hope and community are uncool and not part of the mainstream culture.

Alex Ebert

I’ve always been in love with music, but I’ve never thought to sing.

Tamala Jones

I recommend my students not to be professional unless they really have to be. I tell them, ‘If you love music, sell Hoovers or be a plumber. Do something useful with your life.’

My job as an entertainer is to take you some place else. I love exploring different genres of music to please my fans.

Gloria Estefan

I’m pretty much living my dream job, but one day I would love to dedicate more time to writing and performing my own music.

I felt that with ‘In A Perfect World’ I was still kind of finding myself – not just as a musician, but also in love and in life.

Keri Hilson

As I grew up, I wasn’t a great buyer of albums, but I really liked ‘The Jam.’ I like good musicians and loved the energy of their songs.

Anton du Beke

I love going to the cinema, listening to music, yoga and long walks along Holkham beach in Norfolk.

Saffron Aldridge

I hadn’t played any music since freshman year of college, more than thirty years ago, so I had to relearn everything. I started writing songs. Some were dance and trance songs (I listen to them a lot while I’m writing), and some were love songs, because that after all is what music is about – dancing and trancing and love and love’s setbacks.

Nicholson Baker

Both of my parents were super music lovers when I was growing up – they had a massive record and tape collection. I think my dad even had a couple of laser discs, but that was a short-lived thing.

Madi Diaz

What is music. A passion for colonies not a love of country.

Gertrude Stein

When I was first going out to funky events, it was a lovely kind of music to dance to – it had such a nice vibe.

Kyla Reid

I fell in love with funk music through my father – Funkadelic – as well as soul and classical early on.

Miguel

I’m inspired by artists and musicians. There are so many wonderful and talented people in the world. I love discovering new music, new writers, or new art.

Alicia Keys

Oh, I will always be honest with my music. The records are black boxes for me. Like if you want to know who I am, my views, my perspective, things I love, things I hate, my convictions, my anthems. I’ve never let people’s opinions affect the way I write.

Katy Perry

I find that it isn’t wise to attempt to judge people on their public persona, and even on the music they make. Because I’ve met so many people whose music I cannot stand, and they’re very nice. At the same time, I’ve met people whose music I’ve loved, and they’re not the person you’ve invested all this emotion in.

Morrissey

I’d say that my musical influences are anywhere from pop-rock electronica, new age and classical. But I think that specifically, bands – I love Jem, I love Sigur Ross, I love David Gray, I love Elliot Smith… a lot of different people. But I don’t find lyrical inspiration from anybody.

Emmy Rossum

Music gave me something that was not only good for me – it gave me something to work on, something to be proud of and something that I really loved and have a love for – but also music was good for other people because you put joy into the world.

Flea

The music is the message, the message is the music. So that’s my little ministry that the Big Man upstairs gave to me – a little ministry called love and happiness.

Al Green

For me, I just want to continue telling stories – whether it’s musically or theatrically, this is what I love to do. So, I want to create more.

AJ Michalka

Obviously, fans are the beginning and end for any artist. The minute your fans embrace you and accept you, you begin this ride of being in music and having a career doing something you love. You get to go be a kid and live out your dreams by performing music for fans who come out to your shows.

Luke Bryan

Finding great songs is the hard part of my gig – it’s not as hard as songwriting, that’s much more daunting – but I love playing other people’s music.

Bonnie Raitt

I just play the music that I love with musicians that I respect, and fortunately, I’m in a position where people are willing to play with me, and perhaps I can do something to help them.

Bonnie Raitt

I never studied jazz technically; I just know and love the music.

Mark Ronson

I don’t want to put any pressure on the music; it’s my hobby and my release – a thing that I love.

Iwan Rheon

You have to be careful not to make music something you don’t want to do. Which happens. I’ve gotten off the road and been like, ‘I hate it. I hate singing, I hate playing guitar.’ Six days later, I’m in my bedroom singing at the top of my lungs because I love it so much.

Shawn Mendes

I would love to do a big-budget movie musical – I feel like there is one big musical movie a year. And I’m always there at the theater to see them – I love them.

Autumn Reeser

Ever since the Beatles, the concept of lovable mop tops, it’s a bit of a fantasy, but it’s a lovely idea that people make wonderful music and live a wonderful life being friends together. Sadly, life isn’t quite like that.

Nick Mason

Fashion and music have always played off each other and certainly do for me; I love both so much. But there are definitely those moments when you’re playing the right song at the right time in the right place, and it feels like the best job in the world.

Harley Viera-Newton

There’s something in me that loves to inspire people: when I’m playing music, I imagine all this sparkly stardust going through everyone. I want to make people come alive.

Bat for Lashes

It’s like there’s the rest of the world, and then there’s America. Part of the reason I would really love continue to making music over here because so much of American music has inspired me, whether it’s Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen.

Tom Odell

I believe I was born for this, to tell people about the Lord. I just wanted to find the best way that I could do it, and music, God graced me to be able to do it, and that was the way that I chose to be effective and tell people that the Lord loves them.

Fred Hammond

There aren’t that many songs that pay homage to the DJ. They are the ones getting artists’ music out there. They are the ones getting the club popping. But no one’s giving them any love.

Tila Tequila

The Goth character was a difficult thing to get my head round. I’m not really a fan of Goth music. I’m more a piano and guitar man – that’s what I love.

Richard Fleeshman

I love the dancing and the music from Latin cultures. I went to a Flamenco show in Spain once, and it completely took my breath away!

Torrey DeVitto

I’m sure I would have been considered a more significant artist if I was a singer-songwriter. It’s just not the way I roll. I love being a curator and a musicologist. People write me letters and thank me for turning them on to Fred McDowell and Sippie Wallace, and that’s partly my job this time around.

Bonnie Raitt

I love most melodic music – classical, reggae, big band, jazz, blues, country, pop, swing, folk.

John Lescroart

I did a pop album, ‘Sogno,’ in 1999. I think it’s important to record another pop album because many people love pop music. By this kind of repertoire, some people can later discover classical music.

Andrea Bocelli

I took tap and ballet, which likely contributed to my sense of rhythm and showmanship. I love creating music that gets people moving together, free of inhibitions.

Bria Skonberg

I don’t relate to what’s left of the music business. There doesn’t seem to be any point to it anymore. The business that I grew up in and loved, we made records a different way – there were record companies, there were stores where you could buy albums.

Don McLean

This quality, I mean Geoffrey was with me, was very easy doing – he loved me very much, I loved him very much, and we understood each other so well that it was a pleasure to make music.

Victoria de los Angeles

I don’t love the whole Hollywood mentality, but I do love the weather and how motivated everyone is around here. It motivates me to make fun music.

Charlie Puth

If I couldn’t act, I’d really love to try music.

Ryan Eggold

I love any opportunity I have to make music.

Barry Manilow

Reggae music is a music of integrity; reggae’s consciousness was built on a message. My music speaks of love, equality and spirituality, and I would hope that one finds this integrity in my music.

Stephen Marley

I am a good boy. Sweet. I love to chill. I have a select set of friends, am big on house music, love Goa. I don’t read much. Though that is one habit I am trying to inculcate.

Shahid Kapoor

The musicals that I love on stage are generally meant for the stage.

Joss Whedon

I actually write film music because I’m classically trained on the piano so as well as songwriting I also write actual film music that could be used for movies like war movies and love movies.

Vanessa Brown

I just love music, and I love what music does for people.

James McBride

We listened to a lot of drama, adaptations of books, comedy. There was a real love of music expressed in choirs, because you didn’t have to have instruments except your voice.

Melvyn Bragg

My parents taught me everything and set me up for life. I owe to them all the things I’m passionate about: music, art, the people I love, my career and family life, the fact that I have children and the way that I raise them.

Olivia Williams

I always loved the way music made me feel. I did sports at school and all, but when I got home, it was just music. Everybody in my neighborhood loved music. I could jump the back fence and be in the park where there were ghetto blasters everywhere.

Dr. Dre

I love musical theater. That’s what I started off to do when I was 7, and my first show was ‘Peter Pan.’

David Hasselhoff

I’m a businesswoman. I am a music lover. I like for people to like my music. When you listen to top 40 radio, you hear pop stuff. You hear rock stuff. You hear all these different influences.

Lee Ann Womack

I love being a musician. I love the lifestyle. But I think it’s probably as difficult and frustrating as anything.

Trevor Dunn

That’s what I’ve tried to do: I’ve tried to make music that I really love.

Rebecca Ferguson

I just love storytelling. I write music to tell stories. So when I’m done writing a song, I take it and go, ‘Okay. How can I interpret these lyrics differently?’ I love taking lyrics that were so close to me at a certain point in my life and then revamping them. I always want to take things to the next level.

Hayley Kiyoko

I was sort of in denial about doing country for awhile but I sort of grew up and realized who I was, what I wanted to say. I think country music is the best music in the world and I’m glad to be doing a country album. I hope people will love it as much as I loved making it.

Lucy Hale

Aretha Franklin was a teenage mom, a musician who came from an incredibly Christian background, but there was a lot of love, which is really inspiring in a feminist way.

Beth Ditto

I’m in my father’s car at age 9 or 10 crying to Leonard Cohen’s ‘Famous Blue Raincoat,’ thinking that you could write nearly a love letter to a man who betrayed you by having an affair with your wife. I was thinking how wonderful and pure music can be for explaining situations.

Lou Doillon

I love Adele and Lykke Li. I also listen to classical music as well.

Birdy

Success was one of my weakest points. I was so ill-prepared for it. I never appreciated within myself the gift of success. I never accepted it. People gave me so much momentum and love, and people really got my music, but I didn’t accept it. That’s probably one of my biggest regrets.

Sophie B. Hawkins

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.

Lord Byron

My favorite music isn’t necessarily the songs that One Direction come out with. That doesn’t mean to say I don’t secretly really love some of our songs, which I do. My personal tastes… I actually like quite a bit acoustic and more mellow kinds of things.

Louis Tomlinson

I love hip-hop; I love Sleigh Bells. I also love classical music and musical theater.

Tatiana Maslany

Acting was my first love before music.

Crystal Bowersox

Every girl likes to just rock out when they put music on in their room – I learned that personally when fans would tell us how much they loved to make up their own dances to Cheetah Girls songs.

Sabrina Bryan

I am a very musical person. I love music, and I don’t just love Cape Breton fiddling, although it’s my favorite.

Natalie MacMaster

I like to read, especially nonfiction. I love learning, so I study languages, cook, learn basic HTML, and enjoy other activities that stimulate communication and the dark recesses of my musician’s brain.

Joshua Roman

I’ve never done a musical, and I don’t think I could do one, but I would love to play Sally Bowles in ‘Cabaret.’

Lydia Leonard

I don’t hate the music, but I hate the process. When I look at it, I don’t see song titles and artwork, I see the fight – I see the emotions, the blood, sweat and tears. There are a couple of songs on there that I love; but ‘Lasers’ is a little bit of what you love, a little bit of what you like, and a lot of what you had to do.

Lupe Fiasco

David Bowie’s my favorite musician. I love him above all, but I’m really into rap a lot right now.

Ethan Suplee

I still have all the faith and love for my music and yet I’m still playing places for kids.

Juliana Hatfield

I loved Art Tatum! And, through him, and other different jazz musicians, I actually found my technique.

Tony Bennett

I love music, from shanty sea-songs to Calvin Harris.

Brian McDermott

Music is my love and to me acting is more mercenary. I don’t pound the pavements for roles: if it happens, it happens. I hate that auditioning thing.

David Johansen

I’d love it if American kids were listening to Muslim music.

Brian Eno

I have a confession to make – I truly love country music.

Sarah Rees Brennan

Up until I started on YouTube, my first love was musical theater.

Sam Tsui

You have the ability to write melodies and to put lyrics that mean something: to speak about life and what people are going through in their every day ups and downs, the good times and the bad times. Country music has always talked about life, I think; that’s what I’ve always loved about it.

Jimi Westbrook

I loved music and dance, and that was exciting to me.

Debbie Reynolds

I love music of all kinds, but there’s no greater music than the sound of my grandchildren laughing; my kids, too.

Sylvia Earle

I would love to bring the children from my foundation Sinfonia por el Peru to play with some of the best musicians in the world.

Juan Diego Florez

I like to dabble in different things, but music is my first love. It connects to me in a way my side projects don’t because it’s so personal. I write the words. Music is like my diary. It’s my therapy.

Eve

Music is what I love to do; it’s in my veins.

Demi Lovato

Most of what we take as being important is not material, whether it’s music or feelings or love. They’re things we can’t really see or touch. They’re not material, but they’re vitally important to us.

Judy Collins

Retire? Not on your life. I have no plans to stop singing. What are you going to do when you love music? It’s a terrible disease. You can’t stop. Of course, I’d like to get off the road.

Peggy Lee

I grew up loving Etta James and Aretha Franklin and Al Green and Otis Redding, and I just love old-school R&B. It’s just music that moves you and grooves you, and it was very important, I think, for music.

Elle King

My first memories of music are of my mother playing Dominican music in the house because my parents love to dance. They love to throw parties and dance, so there was a lot Latin music in the house.

Cyrille Aimee

My secret to success is that I’ve always loved good music and people.

Sid Bernstein

I always wanted to go into film. I love film. I loved growing up in the theatre, but I always wanted to do film all along. But, I still pursue music separately.

Sabrina Lloyd

The passion for doing music, the passion that I have for going out and playing it live – my love for country music is back.

Joe Nichols

I think my intention was there, and my love for the music was apparent. And there are very few singers who get up and desire to take the kinds of risks that jazz musicians routinely need to be taking.

Kurt Elling

It’s more difficult to write a song about having your heart ripped out of your chest while you’re in love. Because it lacks honesty. And the honesty comes through in the music, it really does.

Chad Kroeger

Musically, I actually grew up listening to country music as a kid, like George Strait, Alan Jackson… all those guys. So it was kind of weird crossing over from that to pop and R&B, but you know, I love Michael Jackson, Ne-Yo, Usher, R. Kelly, Drake, Boyz II Men.

Austin Mahone

Since I was a child, I always loved music that made me want to dance. As a teenager, I used to dance the night away to electronic music.

Nadia Ali

Classical music has been based on works people love and come back to for aural comfort.

Leila Josefowicz

Certainly, I’ve loved musicals for a while, so I did some short films in college that had musical numbers and things like that, so I’ve kind of been obsessed with Fred and Ginger and Vincente Minnelli and Stanley Donen and Jaques Demy forever.

Damien Chazelle

My experience with music, I’m not going to say extremely negative, but it’s definitely been a grind; it’s been grimy – it hasn’t been a pretty process. It’s left me crying, you know, on the carpet in my tiny apartment with, like, no money. But it’s been worth it, it’s my passion, my dream, it’s what I love to do.

Kat Graham

‘Partita’ is a simple piece. Born of a love of surface and structure, of the human voice, of dancing and tired ligaments, of music, and of our basic desire to draw a line from one point to another.

Caroline Shaw

I’ve always loved acoustic music because I’ve always loved to hear someone’s words or just watch them and just get into them. The distancing thing about rock is it’s so assaulting.

Jane Siberry

When you don’t act right to your family and friends, that’s bad, but they also have the opportunity to experience the ‘good’ side as well. Disappointing the fans is an entirely different thing because the fans love your music and save up money to see you in concert.

George Jones

Composers love to write for symphony orchestras because the symphony is the Rolls Royce of musical instruments.

David Del Tredici

I’m completely in love with the world but also terrified of it. It creates some overwhelming feelings. Wanting to battle out that joy and fear is part of my music.

Florence Welch

I would love to be able to pursue music as a career but honestly, I’m just not good enough.

Shawn Ashmore

I’d love to do a modern-day musical that’s full of original music. To get your contemporaries to sing and dance without looking foolish and for it to be transformational and magical and all those things a musical is supposed to be.

Danny Boyle

I’d love to do a musical. I have a little list of them in my head.

Swoosie Kurtz

For me, and this may not be everybody, but because I do love country music so much, there’s such a feeling of home in Nashville, especially because it’s such a small town. You bring up one song, everybody knows who wrote it, everybody knows their mother and what their cell number is, and all of the stories.

Garrett Hedlund

I love music. I have a fondness for Chopin, and I very much like his ‘Raindrop Prelude.’

Daniel Tammet

Billie Holiday I never met, but I love her music.

Nichelle Nichols

It was a free-for-all with music when I was growing up. My mother was a huge music fanatic so I was listening to everything from country to heavy metal to Indigo Girls to Elton John. I guess when I was really young I didn’t like Willie Nelson, and she obviously loved him. Now I do too, I’m so thankful to her for playing his music nonstop.

Tig Notaro

I really believed that my songs were good enough for the whole world to listen to. I had fans from America or the U.K. who would be like, ‘Oh my God, I love your music’.

Yuna

A lot of R&B cats are doing a lot of auto-tune. Tyrese went back to the basics. I love classic soul music and Ginuwine. Ginuwine and Usher laid the foundation back in the ’90s. There’s no one doing that anymore.

Leon Bridges

I love finding talents to pair my music with such as Conrad on ‘Firestone’, Parson James with ‘Stole the Show,’ and Will Heard on ‘Nothing Left.’

Kygo

My audience went, ‘Wait, why is she singing jazz? What’s going on?’ And then they went, ‘Oh, because she can. Because she loves it.’ And jazz, a music invented by the African-American community, is the greatest art form, I believe, to have ever come out of this country.

Lady Gaga

But I love how people who are musical, they know how to dress.

Amy Sedaris

A lot of music doesn’t do one thing or another. It just doesn’t do anything. Then there are those pieces of music that thrill your soul. It’s such a wide range, and it’s really interesting that we all love different things.

David Lynch

One of my heroes is a composer named James Bernard, and oh my God… I can still listen to his music today and be stirred and moved by it. But I think that you fall in love with… Well, again, when you’re young, it really is more powerful. Much more terrifying.

John Carpenter

I love to listen to pop all the time! I like to be updated on the new hits; I think it’s important for what we do. Among my favorites of all time is, of course, Madonna. But I also love Kylie, our little princess; Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and Justin Bieber. And I listen to Italian pop music like Tiziano Ferro.

Domenico Dolce

John Mayer and Jack Johnson are two of my all-time favorites. I love Colbie Caillat and really cool, beach-y, guitar, acoustic type music.

Halston Sage

But I’m also a music lover, and I’ll always try a lot of different things.

Lee Ann Womack

Music is my passion – it’s what I love and it’s in my blood. You can never take me away from my work.

Nicole Scherzinger

At the beginning, my folks were pretty upset with the whole thing at first, the music, the tattoos – but after observing the music scene I’m in now for a couple of years, they totally get it – they actually love it. They are so proud. My dad actually flew to Japan to see us play. My mom comes to the shows near home in Washington.

Matty Mullins

I’d love to do a musical. 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.

Dwayne Johnson

It’s always a pleasure to perform for people who love country music. And Australians definitely fall into that category. Each time I go back, I learn something new about the country, and I get to see some of the most beautiful places on the planet.

Joe Nichols

I love going into a dive where they have no idea who I am or haven’t heard my music and try to win them over.

Schuyler Fisk

I’m that girl that’s a hardcore musician and loves to sing and write and play instruments but, at the same time, loves video games, metal music, and just being a goofy person.

Christina Grimmie

I love being in the studio, and I am a huge fan of live music. Without writing good stuff in the studio, you have nothing to play live.

Anthony Hamilton

I don’t really mind what people say about my love life or anything like that, but the one thing is that, yes, I do sing and write all my own music. That is something that I hold really dear. And yeah, I made a fool of myself in front of the world, but it was also great to pick myself back up and go on tour.

Ashlee Simpson

Music is more of a hobby to me than my hobbies, if that makes sense. I love music; my dad and brother were very musical, and music just happens to be one of my hobbies that became my vocation.

Al Jardine

I’d always loved poetry and I’d always loved writing music and composing music, but I hadn’t thought of putting the two together until around that time.

Bruce Cockburn

There’s some places where, I don’t know if they’re fiddle fans, or Natalie fans or if they just love Celtic music, but there’s some places where there’s just awesome crowds.

Natalie MacMaster

Playing sport was somewhat frivolous, but I liked it. I rebelled a little bit, and wouldn’t go to music lessons and things like that, but I would go and play ball. My parents learned to love it because they saw how much I got out of it.

Mike Krzyzewski

My dad has actually really influenced me musically. I have a weird love for ’80s and ’90s music. A lot of people are like, ‘Are you serious? It’s so lame.’ But my dad always plays that in the car whenever we’re together.

Harley Quinn Smith

I love that there’s this tradition of being able to discuss the heaviest topics and the gnarliest stuff that goes down in people’s lives in traditional Southern American music.

Gillian Welch

It’s fun and super exciting to see how other people work, how other people write music, and how other people put things together. To me, it’s an endless learning process, and I love doing it because everybody works so completely differently.

Alison Mosshart

He’s the reason why I write music. If he’s reading this – James Taylor, I’d love to work with you! My mom would put headphones on her belly before I was born, so I’ve been listening to him literally all of my life. When my dad played me ‘Walking Man,’ I heard those chord changes and that melody, it completely blew me away.

Charlie Puth

Religion can make it worse. Are you supposing that if people were encouraged to believe in a transcendent reality, and to be encouraged by grand rituals and music and preaching, to love their neighbors, then they would put jealousy and frustration aside?

Mary Douglas

This is sort of not expected, but I would love to produce a record for Missy Elliott. It would be totally different, but she makes party music. ‘Lose Control’ was my favorite song when I was in 5th or 6th grade.

Ansel Elgort

The music industry is such a different world from the acting world. Everything is really last minute, but I love the challenge, and I love owning my material and being able to put out what I want.

Hayley Kiyoko

Every day I feel different about music, but what never changes is my love for it.

Kid Rock

My mom loved rock n’ roll. My father hated it. We couldn’t play it when he was around. He liked classical music and Duke Ellington.

Patti Smith

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 5]

I love all sorts of music. I’m really into Damian Rice and Amos Lee.

Odette Annable

I did Hilary Duff’s ‘With Love’ music video-slash-fragrance ad.

Kellan Lutz

The thing I love about music is that you can take things that are painful, deep things that hurt you, and you can turn them into something beautiful.

Ray LaMontagne

When I was a kid, I went through a lot of musical phases, and one was when I’d learn everything that The Beatles ever recorded. After I started drums, I fell in love with their music so much that I just wanted to learn everything.

Eric Carr

The coolest thing, too, is that people that have never even seen ‘One Tree Hill’ tell me, ‘I love your music.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, do you watch the show?’ And they say ‘No.’ And to me that’s even cooler because that means I’m actually starting to get country fans.

Jana Kramer

My father was a fighter pilot, so I moved around the world when I was young. Then I ended up in Kansas. I’d just sort of gravitated toward the arts, and I had always loved music and really loved theater even though I didn’t want to act.

Patty Jenkins

I love conducting. What I’m tired of is music administration. I don’t want that. I just want to make music.

Daniel Barenboim

I think ‘pop’ can be a bit of a dirty word. People are very cool in Australia. They don’t like to admit that they like pop. There are people who listen to Triple J and cool stuff like that, but commercial radio is massive, and if you look at the sales of the pop songs every week, people love pop music.

Ricki-Lee Coulter

When I’m not shooting, I love going on adventures with friends. I love zip-lining through rainforests and different natural habitats, and I love writing music on the side, and I love drinking coffee. I’m a big coffee drinker and go to a lot of cafes and stuff.

Max Schneider

That’s the thing about music: It’s forever. Hopefully, you captured a moment musically that has a timeless quality people will find relevant to their lives at any point. That’s the whole idea about what I love about art and music.

Robert Coppola Schwartzman

I would love to do more music, definitely. That is my true passion. Dance is first and then music.

Carmen Electra

I’m just going to make the music I love to make, and I’m going to mature with my music.

Jay-Z

We love ‘Fiddler.’ We love ‘West Side Story.’ I want to be in that club. I want to be in the club that writes the musical that every high school does.

Lin-Manuel Miranda

I really love the ’90s. I love the music from then for sure, and to go back to New York then would be a really wonderful thing.

Imogen Poots

I would love to hear all types of Christian artists played all over the world. I’d love to hear good, positive mainstream music played all over the place. I’d love to be able to bring music together. But I have not deserted Christ. I have not deserted my faith.

Stacie Orrico

To me, the concept of distance is not important. Distance doesn’t exist, in fact, and neither does time. Vibrations from love or music can be felt everywhere, at all times.

Yoko Ono

Europe in general is a great place for me, but specifically Germany has been very good to me. Germans love classical music… Electronic dance music is massive over there, so I’m kind of the marriage between the two.

Lindsey Stirling

I love everything, but I really love rock music. Incubus, Augustana, Nirvana, Chevelle, iHi-Hi-Fi, they’re my really good friends.

Audrina Patridge

I started making music that I loved and was passionate and excited about, but it was really cool when I started touring to realize it’s an extremely diverse group of people who come out. In the front row, I’ll have everyone from a little girl in a frilly tutu, to rockers and gamers and older couples. I love it that it’s just everybody.

Lindsey Stirling

I’ve always loved music. I listen to music the way a lot of actors watch movies.

Penn Badgley

Knowing what I knew about Russia, as much as I loved the music and was fascinated by the songs and the whole idea of it, I knew it would be a very lengthy and frustrating process.

Marc Almond

If we have any hope for survival of the music that we all love, compassion must replace name-calling, fairness must replace greed, and we need to come together as a musical community and try to understand each other’s problems.

John Mellencamp

I live cinema and passionately love music, and my efforts in both these crafts are unfolding.

Priyanka Chopra

That’s what I love about Nashville and the music community – seeing kids around acoustic music and bluegrass picking parties is the best.

Dierks Bentley

It’s true that my mom loved it when I played Joanie Cunningham in the musical ‘Happy Days,’ but I think she finally realized I am never going to do ‘Oklahoma!’

Christine Lakin

I always loved Little Anthony and the Imperials. They were like the precursors of the Temptations. I loved their music.

Bobby Keys

Music is love, love is music, music is life, and I love my life. Thank you and good night.

A. J. McLean

I’ve always wanted to be a DJ so I could play the music I love for other people. That feeling hasn’t changed, but my sets are always evolving. In terms of tailoring to a specific crowd, certainly I do play differently depending on the situation. It’s a different feel, for example, in a small club versus a festival.

Tiesto

I think it’s awesome to see people of all different ages from all kinds of backgrounds come together for the love of music.

Miranda Lambert

I love to perform, to give glory to God with my own brand of funky gospel music. I think it’s my mission to show people that God, that Jesus, can be cool.

Tyka Nelson

Quite a few musicians came to our house. And my ma took me to hear many more, hoping to encourage in me a love of music. But she wouldn’t consent to my having music lessons, for she feared I might end up as she had done – unable to play except from paper.

Mary Lou Williams

From the beginning, I’ve always had a knack for catchy melodies. But I went through a period when I was trying to be rock n’ roll and have a rock n’ roll attitude. I was fighting my nature by trying to play really hard and sing really hard. But at a certain point, I realized that I loved syrupy pop music with tons of harmony.

Juliana Hatfield

I respect music, I do. I love it.

Youssou N’Dour

You’re in good spirits when you create and produce great music. All situations inspire music in different ways, man, from good situations, bad situations, depression, falling in love, falling out of love. I’ve been going through all those type of things.

Big Sean

Usually, when I see films that don’t have any score attached to them, I think they’re beautiful. I love just the naked sound of the voice. That’s already music.

Jason Moran

People will always need love, romance, a tender touch, and really personal and deeply felt music.

Susannah McCorkle

I hope my fans will grow with me. I want to be like Michael Jackson: 5-year-olds love his music, and 75-year-olds love his music.

Drake Bell

I love Cher Lloyd’s music. I didn’t actually hear her music as I was creating my own, but it’s cool that we have styles that are considered to be similar.

Bridgit Mendler

Bob Marley performed the ‘One Love Peace’ concert in Jamaica with the two different warring political sides. There’s always been that in black music and culture in general. It’s no surprise because black music is such a reflection of what’s going on in black life. It’s not unusual for hip-hop.

Mos Def

As a child, I was always very interested in music and had friends who were in the music business. I kind of accidentally fell into it and loved it. There was no reason not to – it was a great career.

Hooman Majd

I always wanted my music to influence the life you were living emotionally – with your family, your lover, your wife, and, at a certain point, with your children.

Bruce Springsteen

I love music, particularly Radiohead, TV on the Radio, The XX and Tribes – they’re a great new band from Camden and well worth a look at.

Luke Treadaway

I’m a musician because I love it and it’s supposed to be fun.

Norah Jones

I’ve no grand designs to conquer the music industry, but I’d love to be able to tell my mates that I’m playing in a pub in Camden one night.

Luke Treadaway

I’ve always loved music and felt connected to it, but was too afraid to explore that avenue.

Nikki Reed

Especially now, with ‘Glee,’ it’s allowed a lot of kids to love music and performing at a young age. All ages watched ‘American Idol,’ but I think it was nice to be able to show kids, ‘Hey, you can be here, too.’

David Archuleta

I always have music. I love it to be very upbeat. When you’re having drinks, I like something like Cesaria Evora. During dinner, I like the much more traditional – old Frank Sinatra and things like that.

Ina Garten

I think music is a lifting force, I think love is the lifting force in the human condition. I think you see someone loving on their child, and it moves you, and you can’t help it. It rings a bell inside of us that elevates us as human beings, and I treasure that. I think it’s one of the few great things about human beings.

David Crosby

It’s about giving the people what they want. So many people have told me that they’ve made love to my records so what I’ve delivered this time is an album about sex. Pretty much every song has that theme. Straight no chasers, it’s booty music!

Tyrese Gibson

For me, visuals are as important as the music. I just love escapism and giving people something to escape to. To me, that’s what art is.

Iggy Azalea

I have loved music so much from when I was little, and I don’t know whether it was because I saw my dad doing it and then I got the idea; I don’t know what came first… But I always had a hairbrush in the mirror singing. I was always with him backstage; I would go out and be pulled in for the last song.

Lisa Marie Presley

I first got interested in DJing when I was a little kid. I just love music… Music’s my passion; it’s always been my whole life.

Pauly D

Music is universal too. Even deaf people like to dance, love rhythm, and can kind of pick it up.

Rainn Wilson

I grew up singing ballads, but what I really wanted to get into was the mainstream music on the radio because I really love the beats and everything.

Jessica Sanchez

When you are a real artist who is serious about your craft, you love good music. Period.

Lil’ Kim

I love 50 Cent. I know it sounds weird ’cause a lot of kids might not say that right now, but I definitely want to work with 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Coldplay: I want to work with different artists that are going to push my music to a new level. Not just in urban music.

Tory Lanez

I’ve loved music always, and my music fire was lit by Elvis Presley, really, and all that was happening back then.

David Lynch

Maybe I’ll put my iPod in two minutes before. But truly, I’ve listened to actors say that they loved to listen to music before a shot, and I really understand that now because it puts you in the mood and gives you energy.

Berenice Bejo

I’m doing what I do for the right reasons. I love the music that I make.

Isaac Hanson

I’d love to claim the title of ‘songwriter’ or ‘intellectual,’ but the truth is that anything that I ever learned how to do in conjunction with music was purely so that I would have a platform to sing from.

Brandi Carlile

I love playing music. And that’s what it’s all about.

Jason Aldean

There was always music in our home. My mom and my dad loved music. I remember when we were kids we would have these great parties at the house with congas and bongos and African drums, and it was amazing. It wasn’t until years later that I found out that they were actually Black Panther meetings.

Queen Latifah

Ireland and America, music-wise, are very closely related. The Irish came over with their fiddles in hand, and you can hear it in the bluegrass and rockabilly. I love it when music from different countries combine.

Imelda May

The great love of my life is music.

Mandy Patinkin

I love that period, between the ’20s and the ’60s. I love doing period pieces, and those eras are my favorite period in time, music wise, and the elegance and the way of being.

Laz Alonso

I worked with Snoop, but I would love to work with him again, but DMX… I would love to work with him as well… I met him in Atlanta; I went to one of his concerts; I would love to do a song with him. I respect him and really like his music.

Bow Wow

I’ve always been a fan of country music. It’s America’s music – I love the songs, love the lyrics.

Charles Koppelman

I don’t always have to be on what is the newest in music is. I’m slowly educating myself in music. For me, I feel more free in not knowing everything in what I’m doing. You can start making up too many rules for yourself. It should just be love and fun and feeling good.

Erik Hassle

I used to love ‘Jeeves And Wooster.’ That theme tune was great. I remember writing to them when I was little to get the music so I could learn it on the piano, and they sent me the sheet music.

Lydia Leonard

Music is my love.

Melissa Auf der Maur

I’m totally into Taylor Swift. I think she has super-clever lyrics, and I love that she writes her own music. Some of the themes she writes about are stuff I wish was there for me when I was in high school, and I’m so happy she really cares about her female fans. She’s not catering to a male audience and is writing music for other girls.

Kathleen Hanna

Music is my thing. It’s my thing; it’s what I love. It’s what I do. It’s football to me; it’s Christmas to me; religion to me; poetry to me.

Ryan Adams

I’ve been writing music since 4th grade, and I love putting words together and expressing things in a way that you can move your head to and you can really relate to, because I have a lot to say.

Adam Hicks

My parents were big music fans, and my dad plays music, so I grew up with Madonna, Frank Zappa, the Beatles, Alice In Chains… it was all over the place. I had a Third Eye Blind record, but I also had Korn, Courtney Love, and Shania Twain.

Madi Diaz

I’m a people person, very approachable. I go out every night, tons of functions. I love all facets of this industry… Music, film, TV, books, art. I love being around creative people.

Guy Oseary

But Buddy was an upper. He was happy. He loved music, and he was really happy. I don’t know… I don’t believe in reincarnation at all, but if all that stuff is true, then he might have been on his last time around.

Waylon Jennings

I have this massive love for the whole culture of pop music. It’s my fascination, my ongoing passion.

Siobhan Fahey

House music is about love, and lots of hip hop is about hate and intolerance, so in that respect, it’s not good at all.

Chris Lowe

I’m not really a musician. I’m a performer, and I love rock n’ roll. I’ve embraced rock n’ roll because it encompasses all the things I’m interested in: poetry, revolution, sexuality, political activism – all of these things can be found in rock n’ roll.

Patti Smith

My big love was the Beatles. I was more into music.

Gary Oldman

I love all types of music. Jazz, classical, blues, rock, hip-hop. I often write scripts to instrumentals like a hip-hop artist. Music inspires me to write. It’s either music playing or completely silent. Sometimes distant sound fuels you. In New York there’s always a buzzing beneath you.

Chadwick Boseman

I always find music guys writing about love. Think of something else for a change. I’m sorry, but it’s been done, and it does work and it’s good and all that, but I think something else would be nice.

Jesse Spencer

Journalism is my first love. But music comes in a close second. What’s important for me is that whatever you do, whatever your passion is, you should have another passion – something in your life. And when I put on that musician hat and I put the bass in my hands, I’m not Lester Holt the TV guy anymore. I’m just Lester Holt who likes music.

Lester Holt

I always try to keep a little bit of space in the year to work with other people. Because I love doing musicals, films and plays – projects where I’m not in charge, where I’ve got somebody else telling me what to do and I have to work with their vision.

Wayne McGregor

It wasn’t until my late teens that I really got into soul music and then I was like ‘Ooh, this is good!’ You’d always here it at old family parties, like, Gladys Knight and I’d always love it but I didn’t really get to know it and respect it until I was a bit older.

Rebecca Ferguson

You can fill this table up with people who are racist, homophobic, Satanist worshippers, sexist and we can be arguing but if you put on a song, I guarantee that people will stop and listen and that’s what I love about music, it can bring people together.

Charles King

If it came down to it, I wish people heard different records from me that I know give you a soul R&B sound of music that I know is really my gift, gift. But the ones that usually go are the records that radio, the fans and the clubs really love the most.

Jeremih

I’m thrilled that country music fans like my stuff, but so do a lot of people outside of country music, people who just love music. My goal is more to reach music lovers than to appeal to a genre. I love country music, and I’m proud to represent it, but I don’t obsess over it as a category.

Kacey Musgraves

My favorite type of music to sing is definitely those big ballads, I just love doing those power ballads.

Pia Toscano

When it all started, record companies – and there were many of them, and this was a good thing – were run by people who loved records, people like Ahmet Ertegun, who ran Atlantic Records, who were record collectors. They got in it because they loved music.

David Crosby

I think a lot of my appreciation for the Doors’ music, which I love, originates with my discovery of them through seeing ‘Apocalypse Now.’ It’s my second favorite film of all time.

Scott Derrickson

I find inspiration in many places. Sometimes music gives me the kernel of a story. Sometimes it’s dissatisfaction with the plot of a movie or a book that gets me thinking. Sometimes it’s love of a movie or book.

Christopher Paolini

I really love music that’s on the periphery of not fitting into a clear genre. I felt like I was constantly being described as something I didn’t really feel like I identified with.

Kathleen Edwards

I believe that if writers want their readers to care about a character, they have to care themselves. I have to root for a detective who screws up as much as Thorne does, who shares my birthday, my North London stomping ground, and my love of country music, both alt and cheesy.

Mark Billingham

I didn’t take music seriously in the beginning. It just kind of a hobby to me. It was something that I love doing for fun.

Yuna

That’s what I love about our music – it’ll never be a hit because you can’t dance to it.

Adam Jones

Jazz is not the popular culture. Jazz is in the same position in our culture as classical music. A very small minority of people really love it.

John Corigliano

I still the love classic period, but also the baroque period, and even 17th-Century music such as the music of Monteverdi. He’s one of the greatest opera composers. He was the one who really started the opera.

Cecilia Bartoli

I used to listen to Judy Garland all the time – I love Judy Garland and her music. But I started to realize that if you keep singing like that, singing songs of being victimized by love over and over and over again, it can’t help but have a profound effect on your life.

Diane Keaton

When I was younger, I was in love with everything about the British Isles, from British folklore to Celtic music. That was always where my passions were as a young girl, and so I studied folklore as a college student in England and Ireland.

Terri Windling

That’s what I love from metal, and that’s what I love from hip-hop. That’s what I love from any music that’s hard, that’s got an edge to it-The attitude in it.

Kid Rock

All my life I wanted to play music with love to every member of the audience.

Mstislav Rostropovich

I love the notion of a dude sitting there with an untuned guitar tapping his foot and just singing his passion out; that’s what got me into music in the first place.

Ato Essandoh

I remember hanging out at Starbucks. There were these older guys who would sit around and play Crosby, Stills & Nash songs. I was just so in love with music. I would just go hang out with them, and I would try to sing and harmonize with them. I didn’t even know the songs.

Leon Bridges

We talk a lot on ‘Biggest Loser’ about how fitness is a natural antidepressant, how it burns off stress. What I like about running is that it gives me time alone. I’m always busy, with people at work, with my kids. I love getting out for a run by myself and just listening to my music.

Alison Sweeney

The CD is now the wax album and so it is a collector’s item for people who collect music and love to look at the liner notes and feel paper. I don’t know what would turn them on about having to go through that terrible exercise of trying to open the packaging – it’s unbelievable when you’re trying to open a CD, right? You need a box cutter .

MC Hammer

I have to tell you that I love people. When I see the kids coming up and see what they have done with the music, it’s amazing.

Betty Wright

I love electronic music, and I love drum and bass.

Fred Durst

I’ve loved musicals ever since I saw ‘The Lion King’ on Broadway.

Mark Indelicato

I remember seeing McCoy Tyner in concert, and thinking that the music was incredible, but wanting to be invited in. I figured that humor was the way of letting the audience in. I’ve gotten a hard time about it, but I love to be funny onstage.

John Lurie

Most importantly, I don’t do music for people to want to be a singer, actor, or dancer. I do it because I love it and I want to show others you can accomplish goals.

Trevor Jackson

People don’t appreciate music any more. They don’t adore it. They don’t buy vinyl and just love it. They love their laptops like their best friend, but they don’t love a record for its sound quality and its artwork.

Laura Marling

The game Rock Band has been haunting me like a bad ring tone. It gets stuck in my head and momentarily effaces all that I love about music.

Carrie Brownstein

I love school and science; I also love piano and music.

Isaac Hempstead Wright

I do music for the love of it, and I’ve been doing it from a very young age: about 11.

Wyclef Jean

I love playing music, so I think the whole John Varvatos look is kind of cool. I think he has a great style.

Henrik Lundqvist

That said, I’d love to do a musical, either in film or on stage.

Reese Witherspoon

I would like a man now who is rich, and who can give me a boat – a sailboat. I want to own it and let him pay for it. My first love is the sea and water, not music. Music is second.

Nina Simone

I guess, for me, what started me getting real excited about music was the New York punk and new-wave scene. All those bands looked back to the Velvet Underground and the Stooges and the Modern Lovers as well. But that was back when Television were punk, and the Talking Heads were punk.

Dean Wareham

I love music; I come from a region of Kurdistan that is a base for music.

Bahman Ghobadi

I can have a song with Ariana Grande that is going to be the song for all the kids and the teen girls, and then another song that could be for a different group of people who all love the song. I’m with whoever. Whatever type of people want to love the music and whatever they love about the music is fine with me.

Mac Miller

I’d love to do something where I played a musician.

Theo James

Since I first fell in love with choral music when I was 18 and began composing at 21, I’ve been listening to these recordings of British choirs. I just fell in love with that sound – that pure, clean, pristine sound – and I think it’s probably been the biggest influence on my sound.

Eric Whitacre

I’m in love with music, and I’m pregnant by it. It’s like having twins. Or triplets. Or eight-lets!

R. Kelly

My dad wasn’t the biggest role model, but he was a great musician and I loved him very much. He was a character.

Randy Houser

I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it. Then, being able to tap along on a table top and box was great, but my favorite thing to do was to watch records spin. I would almost get hypnotized by it. These things are what drew me in initially.

Narada Michael Walden

I think there are so many ways to become interested in music. I believe signs of sustained interest gives a sense of the right time. Music, if thought of as a language, would perhaps indicate that as early as possible is not so bad. I do believe that a really nurturing first teacher that makes the child love something is crucial.

Yo-Yo Ma

I love music, so if I wasn’t singing, I would probably still be working in the music industry. I love songwriting, so I’d probably be a songwriter.

Trey Songz

I love stage actors. There’s something special about all people who have to do a performance eight shows a week, and musical people, especially, are so much fun.

Kelly Bishop

I love rock-n-roll. I think it’s an exciting art form. It’s revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.

Nick Cave

Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin – find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less.

Maya Angelou

My father loved all different types of music. He wasn’t a snob. He wasn’t a purist.

Ziggy Marley

I like to play music; play guitar – I love that. Play some golf in the summer. Just relax, enjoy the summer. That’s nice.

Henrik Lundqvist

I think every revolutionary act is an act of love. Every song that I’ve written, it is because of my desire to use music as a way to empower and re-humanize people who are living in a dehumanizing setting. The song is in order to better the human condition.

Zack de la Rocha

I’ve loved musical theater ever since I was a kid. My mother’s a pianist, and my grandfather was an amateur theater director and stand-up comic. And I was an only child. And I loved attention. So from an early age, my family was teaching old musical songs.

Rachel Bloom

I was always artistic – right from childhood – but my love of painting came a bit later. It followed my love of music.

Sean Scully

I hope that country music embraces me because I grew up on it and have a love for the music.

Crystal Bowersox

Dance music is my love, is my passion, is my life. I live for my fans and take my art very seriously.

Steve Aoki

I don’t think I’d want to concentrate on just acting because I love music, and things are going really well, so I think I will always continue to make music.

Ashley Thomas

In the film work, I love to work mainly from the script and from talking to the directors, so a lot of the music, big portions of the scores that I’ve made, have been composed before the movies were even shot.

Gustavo Santaolalla

The first Decline I did was out of sheer love and appreciation for the music. In 1977, it was more about bands, because punk was a new form of music. It was groundbreaking and political.

Penelope Spheeris

You know, I love plays. I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director.

R. Kelly

I grew up listening to pop music with my dad in the car, and we’d just listen to Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Earth Wind & Fire, KC and the Sunshine Band – all that good stuff. So to see it snaking its way back around again is really exciting, and I love listening to the radio.

Megan Nicole

I love stretching myself musically.

Liz Phair

I’ve gotten to a place where I still love to play and sing, but I don’t have any ego agenda left, outside of just wanting to stay in a creative place and play music. I much prefer to sing for somebody else, and to somebody else.

Ryan Adams

If you don’t have any ties to the music industry, you just love ‘American Idol,’ you can sit there and do exactly what you do in your living room, which is stare at them and judge them.

Neil Patrick Harris

I love recording music.

J. J. Abrams

I love the Mexican muralists – like Rivera, Orozco – and the music of Walter Benton. They gave you a sense that reality was much more than life.

Billy Dee Williams

I love church buildings, particularly cathedrals, and I like living in spaces that remind me of music or evoke that creative energy.

Laura Mvula

I really do listen to all types of music, not only rock, but everything from good pop music – which is usually older pop music – to R&B and indie rock. I love indie rock more than a lot of the commercial stuff that you’d expect.

Amy Lee

I grew up listening to Switchfoot. I love Switchfoot; they’re a great band. John Foreman is awesome. I really dig mainstream pop music, but I also have a heart for jazz and rock. Oh! Coldplay! I cannot miss Coldplay! I think ‘Fix You’ is one of the most brilliantly written songs ever. It’s, like, my favorite song of all time.

Shane Harper

I love music and love a good audience and still have to make a living. Why would I quit?

Doc Watson

Growing up, I put a lot of pressure on myself. I felt with The Beatles legacy that there was pressure on me to do music, and while I always loved music and it was always around me at home, I thought about doing other things.

James McCartney

That’s what I love. Not being interrupted, sitting in a car by myself and listening to music in the rain. There are so many great songs yet to sing.

Alison Krauss

I’ve got great joy from rediscovering Western music. I love Schumann and Chopin, and those amazing symphonies of Bruckner.

John Tavener

I loved the Cure and Bauhaus and the Smiths. The people in my town weren’t privy to that kind of music and I got abused. I discovered the microphone to get out some of that angst.

Fred Durst

I didn’t have nothin’ going for me… school, home… until I found something I loved, which was music, and that changed everything.

Eminem

I’ve always been a fan of Drake’s. I wouldn’t say I listen to all of his music, but I would say that I pick tunes out of his that I love and then put them on repeat.

Kyla Reid

My real interest in music was the old 78 records and the sound of the music. I loved it and began to realize that one of the main sounds on those old records I loved was the guitar.

Doc Watson

There is a bit of a movement as far as younger people in country music. That is cool because people are saying things like, ‘I didn’t listen to country music until so-and-so came along.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah! Now you know why I love it.’

Hunter Hayes

Some of my favorite films are musicals, like ‘Walk the Line,’ ‘The Rose’ and ‘Lady Sings the Blues.’ I just love the way the music and the story fuel each other.

Gina Prince-Bythewood

I grew up listening to a lot of different types of music, and R&B in particular was something that I loved – Aaliyah, Usher, Alicia Keys, TLC.

Yuna

I’d go over to my grandmother’s house, and she’d be playing opera. They loved opera. Not only did they play it on the radio, but they played it on their piano. Everybody learned how to read music and how to play.

Linda Ronstadt

My dad wanted me to play when I was a kid, so I learned to play the guitar. I pursued a career in music because I love it so much and I enjoy what it does to those who hear it.

Randy Travis

I would hate to make music and people love me for something that isn’t me.

Alicia Keys

I find music distracting – it takes me out of my head. What I love so much about skiing is the peacefulness.

Julia Mancuso

I’m not a goddess, for crying out loud. I’m a regular person who took feminism – which I have a deep connection to – and mixed it with music, which I really love to do.

Kathleen Hanna

I love every kind of music.

Kimberly Caldwell

Ultimately, I love making music more than anything. And I want to do that for ever. I don’t want be on the top. I just want to keep doing what I’m doing.

Chet Faker

I personally love J.Lo because she’s a fashion icon and I love her music.

Jessica Sanchez

So, when you divide the world into music lovers, music fans and then those people who are just very casual about their music, it’s wallpaper to them, it’s elevator music, it’s just the thing that’s playing in the background that helps them through their day.

Michael Stipe

I would love to do more theatre, musicals… everything.

Chris Pine

I love musicians. I think artists are the most amazing people because they’re constantly creating beauty for the world. With all the crazy stuff going on in the world, then there’s artists reminding us of our humanity and reminding us of our heart and soul and what really matters.

Christie Brinkley

I had always loved music. I grew up listening to classic country, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard. My dad loved Vern Gosdin and Keith Whitley. So I kept going to class and started getting totally into playing guitar and teaching myself these songs.

Jake Owen

I’ve had so many hot, cheesy, corny loves of music in my life. I had a very intense Billy Joel period. So once you’ve really Joeled it up – there’s some good periods of Joel; it’s not all hot cheese. But I can’t judge anyone else for their cheese. I’ve deep-sea dived in the Gouda.

Jack Black

That was a time when I did love music, I couldn’t get enough of what was going on. Maybe it was Nirvana that brought me back. I guess it was a comfort because something that sounded so right – and non-commercial – had become so influential, so immediately.

Marc Jacobs

I think the main focus as a musician should be to play the music you love to play, and the rest is going to come naturally.

Gerald Clayton

When I perform Strauss, it is as if the music fits me like a glove. My voice seems to lie in a happy area in this music, which is lyrical and passionate at the same time.

Kiri Te Kanawa

I think it’s important to really press on with the song writing and just go with it. There’s no code, there’s no craft… it’s just let yourself shine through your music. If it’s meant to be loved and heard, it’ll happen.

Chantal Kreviazuk

I am an actor, and although I love music, and at times can’t live without it, I eat, sleep, breath, sweat, and bleed acting.

Tyler James Williams

When I started off in music, I started with a real innocence, a real love for the instrument, the writing the songs, the playing the songs and the sharing and the recording and experimenting. It was exciting. Then, this thing called success came, and something happened at some point where I became disenchanted, and I lost the innocence.

Damien Rice

I love clubbing – the abandon of it, the release of dancing, and being with my friends and the people I love. For me, it’s never been about going out to meet guys or to show off my latest dress – it’s the music.

Katy B

I’m kind of a good girl – and I’m not. I’m a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I’m a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That’s what the stories in my music do.

Katy Perry

I love seeing the fans of the music that I make.

Gavin Rossdale

I want to do a big Broadway musical, at some point. I would love to do that. To do something there would be super-cool.

Lara Pulver

The music I love to sing would have to be gospel – it just uplifts me, it takes me to a really good place.

Jacob Lusk

I like to hang out with my friends. I love music. I like to go to the movies. I like to eat. I like to cook.

Joan Jett

My father is a jazz musician, so I grew up hearing jazz. My parents loved it, but I didn’t like it. It went on for too long. Yes, I had certain teachers that really inspired me, like Danny Barker, and John Longo. And I had no idea that I would have any impact on jazz.

Wynton Marsalis

I love traditional music. But in any culture around the world, there is the historic and cultural music and everything that’s been passed down and passed down, and hopefully you take that, and then you take it, you know, the next distance, and then somebody else takes it the next distance.

Robbie Robertson

Funny enough, there have been puppets in everything I’ve written because I have a huge love of puppets. There’s a big puppet musical at the end of ‘Sarah Marshall.’ I wrote ‘The Muppets.’

Jason Segel

I love to have a bath with beautiful, relaxing music on and have no rush to do anything. It’s a wonderful indulgence, and it helps me to calm down and stop my mind running overtime.

Kylie Minogue

I loved a lot of different kinds of music, but for my own thing, I went for the singer-songwriters.

Patti Scialfa

I love to play music.

Gavin DeGraw

Hearing things like ‘Wake Up’ by Lora Logic, or the Raincoats’ ‘In Love’ – that was something I wasn’t prepared for. I couldn’t hear anything that came before it in the music, and I didn’t want to. I was absolutely in love with its out-of-nowhereness.

Greil Marcus

I’ve been making demos at home for many albums now. So over those years, I’ve learned how to record music, and I love being at home. I excel when I can make things at home.

Jason Mraz

There are plenty of millionaires who would pay millions to hang a Van Gogh painting on the wall, but hardly one that would have ever had the crazy nut over for dinner. I feel like the big companies are like that with musicians. They’ll say, ‘We love music! It’s all about the music!’ – but if a musician shows up at the door, they call security.

Derek Sivers

I gravitate towards happy music. I love the Beach Boys.

Zooey Deschanel

Everybody in Lynyrd Skynyrd loves different styles of music, and our minds are very open when it comes to writing our songs and making the band true to what the band is, but also stepping out and doing something current.

Johnny Van Zant

I love my complexion, but like so many of us, in the early years at primary school, I grew up thinking that my dark skin wasn’t a great thing. I’ve found freedom in music and songwriting, which has given me a freedom in how I present myself. I’m glad I’ve got makeup to celebrate that with.

Laura Mvula

I love music, especially classical like Verdi; it’s a great way to relax.

David Suchet

My view is that musicals are love stories with great final scenes. It’s just that simple. Musicals are also conflicts between two worlds. And by those criteria, ‘The Color Purple’ is actually exactly the kind of story that makes for a great musical. Yes, it’s got hard stuff in it, but so does ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Phantom of the Opera.’

Marsha Norman

You must play for the love of music. Perfect technique is not as important as making music from the heart.

Mstislav Rostropovich

It’s really important to me that my niece and nephews can come and see my show, as can my grandad and nan. I love spending time with my family, and music has always bonded us.

Jessie J

People tend to forget that celebrities are human beings. We live our lives. We try to do what we love, which is music. And to share it with everyone in our job usually is to entertain and to make people forget their troubles.

Gloria Estefan

I hitched up to Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love, you know? And I was very much politically aligned with that whole mentality, the whole ideology of that generation, the music, the culture, the behavior.

David Cassidy

I really, really love new work, and that’s why, you know, I produced a concert series supporting new musicals and stuff like that. I hope to do more things like that.

Josh Young

I want to be in a musical. I love music, and just to be able to mash the music and the acting together, it would be just incredible.

Stefanie Scott

I use rock and jazz and blues rhythms because I love that music. I hope my poetry has a relationship with good-time rock’n roll.

Adrian Mitchell

My music is about the journey, about love and the human experience.

Wynonna Judd

I did not fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I cannot fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I am not his employer. I do not have such authority. And even if I did, I would never fire Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys. I love Brian Wilson. We are partners. He’s my cousin by birth and my brother in music.

Mike Love

I think, for a love story, the most important element is the music, since you don’t have action sequences or item numbers. It really draws in the audience and adds to at least 70 percent of the opening of the movie.

Ranbir Kapoor

I love musicals – that’s probably one of my most gay traits: that’s one of my giveaways!

Russell Tovey

I love writing for dancers. You don’t have to worry about the lyrics. I think to write words without music must be so frustrating. It must be always be so good, so perfect.

Nellie McKay

I’m the biggest music lover in the world. I mean, I have seen everybody. I went on tour with Michael Jackson and the Jacksons four or five times.

Magic Johnson

I want my fans to love themselves. It’s almost like I want to hypnotize them so when they hear my music they love themselves instantly.

Lady Gaga

I’m a country singer. I love all kinds of music, but country is where my loyalty lies. That’s just me and what I do, and I’m not going to change it.

George Strait

Sometimes when I get home after a long day, I’ll turn on music – I love Latin, disco, and pop – and do my own workout, even if it’s a short one. Know a good song to work out to? ‘I Will Survive.’

Summer Glau

I still love a variety of kinds of music.

Gloria Gaynor

In the 1950s in the United States, few music lovers were listening to chamber music. Daddy played Bach and Haydn on our phonograph for me. Not only did I become familiar with the form; he discussed the concerti. My own head start. My own Head Start.

Karen DeCrow

I’ve been reading scripts where they’ve been doing a lot of singing now, but within the dark, realistic story line. I would love, love, love, love to do that. But not a musical on Broadway, I don’t have that kind of energy or stamina.

Alia Shawkat

My first transistor radio was the heart of my gadget love today. It fit in my hand and brought me a world of music 24 / 7.

Steve Wozniak

I am permanently a student of people who make great songs, but besides sort of learning by absorption, I just love listening to music, hearing what’s going on, hearing new things or new old things.

John Darnielle

Being a musician, people ask you a lot about what musicians inspire you, and there’s plenty of musicians that I love and respect, but I think that I’m the most inspired by cinema.

Halsey

Taylor Swift dates guys so she can write a breakup song about them. I don’t think she’s dating for love – I think she’s dating for creativity. So let’s get her off the market and put her in dating detox. If she really wants love, she has to stop writing music about them.

Patti Stanger

Lots of people, from what I can see, just want to get into the music business for the glamour of it. But there isn’t any, really. It’s so up and down this industry, but if you really love it, nothing can stop you.

Eliza Doolittle

I have fans, and I have family that love me, and I have my music, and I have my breath going in and out.

R. Kelly

When I was in school, you could pick any instrument you want, and they’d teach you how to play it. That changed my life. I loved playing music in school, and it sent me on my path as a musician.

Flea

I’ve been musically inclined since I picked up an instrument in the fourth grade. I just really appreciate music. I love to listen to it; I love to sing. I wouldn’t consider myself, like, a natural singer. I just developed it over time, honestly, just listening. I’m a great listener to music.

Kyrie Irving

I was definitely Theater-Band Geek/Straight-Up Boss Subgroup C. I was really into band and theater and super into music at the time. I loved performing arts, and that would definitely be my group.

RJ Cyler

I write plays, and I have a musical that’s starting to get produced now. That’s what I would love to do, but it’s so hard. The only reason people are reading my plays and musicals is because I’m in movies.

Jesse Eisenberg

I was a piano player. I love piano playing. I just love all music.

Maceo Parker

My fans saw ‘Roll Bounce,’ but also that older crowd who might not have been familiar with me on the music tip saw ‘Roll Bounce’ and loved it. ‘Roll Bounce’ opened up that door for me to have older people love Bow Wow and opened up that door so all of the kids would love Bow Wow. My fan base is really diverse; it’s all ages and all colors.

Bow Wow

I can tell you, dearest friend, that if it became known how much friendship, love and a world of human and spiritual references I have smuggled into these three movements, the adherents of programme music – should there be any left – would go mad with joy.

Alban Berg

I loved the atmosphere of the dance studios – the wooden floors, the big mirrors, everyone dressed in pink or black tights, the musicians accompanying us – and the feeling of ritual the classes had.

Suzanne Vega

I turn on the radio. I’m a really big fan of old-fashioned dial radio. I love WNYC and NPR and also 88.3 in New York, which is the jazz station, and it’s usually good for background music. If I’m not in New York City or by a traditional radio, I’ll stream it on my phone, although I usually try not to look at my phone first thing in the morning.

Julia Stiles

No one dislikes LL Cool J. If you meet LL Cool J, you fall in love with LL Cool J. LL and I had mutual friends, and he and I had always talked about doing something. My fans know LL’s music. And I love him – we’re blood brothers at this point. We’ve been through the fire together. I know no finer person.

Brad Paisley

In the long, nonillustrious history of white people pilfering African American culture, have I just perpetrated that? I’m motivated by a love for the music and by a love of the performances, and I really hope I haven’t done anything bad.

Moby

When I do a festival, I want everyone to have a party, I think it is kind of similar to a club where everyone is there to have a good time and celebrate not being at work or just being able to have fun. I love people dancing to my music as well; if I can make them dance I feel happy.

Katy B

I loved Roy Acuff with all my heart, and I never dreamed I’d be able to meet him or see him onstage, or especially become good friends with him. For all this to happen, it’s hard to explain what a dream this is when you love something as much as I love traditional country music.

George Jones

My passion for music is one of my greatest loves.

Naya Rivera

Of all the parts that make up my somewhat quirky life, there are few things that raise a stranger’s eyebrows faster than discovering I love country music.

LZ Granderson

I love entertaining people, I love playing music, and I love rocking like an animal. But at a certain point, you’re playing gig after gig after gig, in town after town after town, and you’re lying down, staring at another hotel-room ceiling, and it’s like, ‘I want to be home. I’m a dad. I’ve got kids.’

Flea

I’m very into Taylor Swift. From her music to her wardrobe, she is absolutely killing it. Also, she has adorable cats that I would love to pet.

Connor Franta

I love pop music because you can really see what’s currently happening in society.

Marina and the Diamonds

I am a lover of all sorts of different music. I love blues and every piece of music that I have listened to has become an influence.

David Gilmour

I love working with an orchestra, but there are many ways to make music.

Howard Shore

‘American Music’ is an inventive, passionate, pithy novel whose major theme is love itself and whose minor theme, music, is an emotional, meaningful counterpoint. Like Count Basie and His Orchestra, this book swings.

Kate Christensen

I love classical. I have a lot of, like, Bach and Mozart and stuff. Then you flip on over, and I’ve got, like, Kanye West and, you know, just a bunch of – I am very eclectic. I love every sort of music.

Kaley Cuoco

The bottom line is that musicians love to make music and always will.

Jennifer Lopez

My family wasn’t in the music business, but they loved music.

Andra Day

Under the spell of the right song, passion is within reach… love is close by… and you are not alone! With such potency, music should be treated with care. The sound, the feel, the presentation… everything! It is a medicine. It is a teacher!

Dave Sitek

Yeah, exactly, you can talk about politics in music, you can talk about something else, but that’s always going to change, and love is never going to change.

Enrique Iglesias

I come from a world of hip-hop, but I love all types of music, and that’s what Revolt will reflect. It will be home to electronic dance music, pop, hip-hop.

Sean Combs

I’m having a blast being the music director at the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. It certainly is challenging for me, but I love challenges.

Joshua Bell

I love music. It’s freedom, a way to deal with pent-up frustration.

Ice Cube

The music itself is very challenging, so I’ve never really felt the lack of stimulation. I love to be creating; I love to be making things and solving problems, I suppose, and when I’m not, then I’m not an incredibly good person to be around. If I’m not busy, then I think I would be disaster. That’s just the way things are.

Brian May

I like Jailhouse Rock and Love Me Tender. The black-and-white films. With music, I tend more toward the ’70s stuff because I was at the shows for those, so they bring back memories.

Lisa Marie Presley

DJ Sliink is amazing, and his production is on the next level. There are a lot of EDM producers that I’d like to work with, not for the sake of having an engineered record, but for the fact that I love their production and music.

Travie McCoy

I’m a guitar player, really – I mean, first and foremost – I grew up with all that great 1960s music, in terms of growing up, becoming a musician, so it’s like first-love stuff; I’m always going to go back to it.

Todd Rundgren

I’ll never stop acting, but music is another passion of mine. I just love creating projects in the entertainment field and performing onstage or in front of a camera.

Katherine McNamara

What I loved with Billie Holiday is she had a good way of parlaying the sorrow with a positive musical twist.

Rebecca Ferguson

Sometimes with pop music, you have to see it to love it. With soul music, it’s sparse. There’s nothing that’s pretentious or planned. It’s just so gutsy.

Adele

Musicians play music because you love… I loved to play drums since I was five. It’s all I ever wanted to do. Rock stars, or as we call them, posers, guys who want to just look great, dress great. They’re not musicians; they’re looking for the fame.

Peter Criss

I love punk rock, The Clash, The Ramones, The Cramps. I love where it all came from, and music for my ears now, it has to have that same electricity, adrenaline and danger.

Imelda May

I love all types of music. I love top 40 dance pop, hip-hop, I don’t even know what they call it now. I’m a huge fan of all that.

Dustin Lynch

I love to look back, but I don’t want my music to be nostalgic. I want it to have the same vibrancy that the music I love had when it came out. I’m trying to get that electricity.

Imelda May

What I love the most is getting on the ice and just popping in a fabulous CD and skating – all by myself, the rink completely empty, just me and the music.

Michelle Kwan

I love classical music; I love the way it’s worked… all those chord sequences so I often use that sort of effect in my solos.

Jon Lord

I’m really very glad that I had skating to be my love and my escape. I think that it always gave me something that made me feel good, and it was music, and it was peaceful, and not a lot of the other stresses of life.

Dorothy Hamill

Both of my parents are actors and directors and whatnot. My dad loves really solid, old school, Broadway musicals, and one of them is ‘Assassins’ by Stephen Sondheim. All of the successful or non-successful assassins that have ever existed in the United States come together, and they talk about their killing or attempts through songs.

Will Rothhaar

I got involved in music because I love everything about it, but now I’m in it you see the other side and it isn’t much fun. Not as glamorous and enjoyable as you imagine.

Gary Numan

I went through a phase when I was 13 where I would only fall in love with people over the age of 19 or 20. I never had a real relationship with any of these people, but it was definitely the guy I wanted to hang out with and wanted to go on trips with. I would be like, ‘But, Daddy, he’s a musician!’.

Olivia Wilde

I love Beyonce. She’s so fierce. I also love Lily Allen, and she was an influence on my music.

Bridgit Mendler

And for the past 10 years I’ve been in a real commercial setting where people are all about numbers, they’re all about that bottom line. So it’s nice to step out of that and hang out with a bunch of people who play music just because they love it, as you can imagine.

Lee Ann Womack

I think it had something to do with my love of music, especially rock music.

Gary Cole

Oh man, I love what the South brings as far as the soul, and I really have noticed from even the early days of listening to OutKast and Goodie Mob that Atlanta and the South has a diverse sound to it. You have bounce music. You have soulful musicians. You have artists with vocals who try to do different things.

Common

Tons of musicians who I love are imprisoned by their identity. That can be totally fine because they are so amazing in their technique, but for me, I’m a little too restless for that.

Jason Moran

I would love to do a musical so hopefully I will be blessed with doing one.

Heather Matarazzo

I joke to people in the press that I realize I’m not black, I’m actually white. But I’ve got these roots in black American music. I love it.

Glenn Hughes

I’m my own favorite artist, but I love everybody’s music.

Desiigner

I’m very proud of my love for Whitney Houston. She really changed my life. She made my life a better life. She was so beautiful in her love for God, her love for her family and her love for music. She truly loved her music. She could do everything! She had flawless rhythm, flawless pitch, flawless feeling, and flawless beauty.

Narada Michael Walden

I love the conversation between film and music.

Agnes Obel

I ended up doing a local AmDram musical when I was nine or so. We had to sing and dance and act. It was probably terrible, but I loved it.

Gemma Chan

I wish I had the guts and talent to be a good comedian. I love the idea of it, yet I’m terrified of it. I’d also love to play music in front of people.

Charlie Rowe

I play bass. I play a bit of guitar. I’ve never been to a lesson, so my theory of music is non-existent in any instrument, but we always had guitars around. My dad taught me to play drums for ‘Love Actually,’ and I still play drums now. But I’m not a ‘drummer.’ I’m not a ‘guitarist.’ I’m trying to be a bassist.

Thomas Sangster

I love form, but I’m not interested in forms. I’ve never written a sonnet or villanelle or sestina or any of that. For me, it’s a kind of line. It’s a rhythm. It’s something musical.

Robert Pinsky

I have terrible taste in things: music, movies, TV shows. I love all the guilty pleasures: Bravo, ‘Real Housewives.’

Grace Helbig

I think Paris smells not just sweet but melancholy and curious, sometimes sad but always enticing and seductive. She’s a city for the all senses, for artists and writers and musicians and dreamers, for fantasies, for long walks and wine and lovers and, yes, for mysteries.

M. J. Rose

I’ve always loved to paint – I was studying to do an art degree when I was approached to become a model – and I’ve being doing some design work as well. I also love just having a quiet time, sitting in my little library at home in Brooklyn and reading or watching documentaries or listening to music.

Alek Wek

I just loved the guitar when it came along. I loved it. The banjo was something I really liked, but when the guitar came along, to me that was my first love in music.

Doc Watson

When I look at music, everything is blurred, and I like it that way. I grew up like that, hanging out with different types of people who listened to so many different types of music. I never wanted to be part of any one clique. I loved it all.

Travis Barker

And my father was a comic. He could play any musical instrument. He loved to perform. He was a wonderfully comedic character. He had the ability to dance and sing and charm and analyze poetry.

Lynn Johnston

I love hip hop music, I make hip hop music.

Charlie Hunnam

I love to get to that place where I don’t know what kind of music I’m doing; I don’t know if it’s any good. I don’t know if it’s anything. It’s a big question mark. The idea is to have interesting results. That’s my bottom line.

Ariel Pink

I would love to document the Roots; I think they have an interesting story. I have a curiosity about them. Their musicality and their live performances I think would be great, and I have a feeling that there are stories behind each one of them.

Michael Rapaport

I love music, and I loved dance music immediately. So I bought some equipment and started making my own. When I started this, I didn’t say, ‘okay I’m going to do this step and then this step’ to become popular. I just created music that I loved.

Armin van Buuren

People love events – they love performances, they love music – and I think Australians are great entertainers.

Cate Blanchett

I know that one day I would love to do a musical.

Guillaume Canet

I love the life of a musician but I live the life of a bodybuilder.

Warren Cuccurullo

When I was young, my parents made me listen to old music and watch Jimmy Durante. I fell in love with the whole mystique of acting and entertainment.

James Wolk

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 4]

It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.

Benjamin Britten

I would love to do a play, but I don’t know about musical theatre. I’ve never done anything like that.

Chandra West

People like music when they’re in love, but they don’t need it as much. You need music when you’re missing someone or you’re pining for someone or you’re forgetting someone or you’re trying to process what just happened.

Taylor Swift

My love of music comes from as long as I remember. I begged my mum to learn piano for a year when I was 4; she wanted to make sure I was serious, and I wanted to be Chuck Berry when I grew up! We were a very musical family; my mum would play guitar, and her, my dad and aunt would sing and harmonize!

Natalia Tena

If it weren’t for how esoteric the art world likes to be, I would love actually to play the music in the shows, painting the music that influences me most.

Damian Loeb

‘Just Can’t Let You Go’ is a song about passion. It’s when you have such a strong passion and love for someone or something that your heart just can’t let it go. Whether it’s a special boy, girl, or that feeling you get when performing on stage or playing a sport. For me, my passion is music. I just can’t let it go!

Manika

The thrill of hearing your own voice recorded is still there, I still love it, going into the studio and thinking how can I sing this song and between the producers and the musicians you find a way of doing it.

Cliff Richard

Even for the people in the business who are real music lovers it’s really about putting things in the right boxes, and my style doesn’t fit into a box.

Teddy Thompson

I love pop music. I love drum and bass, Calvin Harris, all these electronic things, but it’s nice to have something organic as well.

Gabrielle Aplin

I originally had opened the studio in New York to combine my two loves, music and design. And we created videos and packaging for many musicians that you know, and for even more that you’ve never heard of. As I realized, just like with many, many things in my life that I actually love, I adapt to it. And I get, over time, bored by them.

Stefan Sagmeister

I’m not going to say I’m not a fan, but I’m a fan of house music, essentially, and kind of indie, and I was always into the kind of sub-pop Seattle Mud Honey and Pearl Jam kind of sound. But my kind of big love was house music ever since I was 15/16, going to raves when I was 15 or 16 years old and not going to school, like a naughty boy.

Nick Frost

I’m basically just a normal girl from West London who speaks from her heart and who loves music.

Rita Ora

I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director. So most of my songs come in a play form, you know, where there are characters and stories, so I like to go beyond just the song sometimes.

R. Kelly

I love music, I love all kinds of music, particularly jazz. Jazz is an extension of America. There’s no other country in the world that could have produced jazz.

Jon Huntsman, Jr.

My parents were very musical in the sense that they were, you know, music lovers and avid buyers of records, but none of them actually play an instrument.

Gustavo Santaolalla

I love musicals; I love the ballet, opera, the circus. It’s all performance to me.

Ian Mckellen

I love anyone who breaks the rules, and musicians always break the rules – in an aggressive way.

Donatella Versace

I just love where I am right now in my career. I love country music. I don’t ever feel restricted by the genre. I’ve been able to have a solid career that we’ve built one step at a time and a family. I know that I’m in a good place.

Martina McBride

I love loud music. I listen loud, and that’s part of how I’ve learned how to do this. Record softly and play back loud and a whole other thing happens.

T Bone Burnett

The studio is really fun because I don’t make it into the studio unless I’ve got something I really like. I love working with different musicians in the studio; that’s a real joy, working with someone for the first time.

Bob Seger

What can a pencil do for all of us? Amazing things. It can write transcendent poetry, uplifting music, or life-changing equations; it can sketch the future, give life to untold beauty, and communicate the full-force of our love and aspirations.

Adam Braun

I grew up listening to hits, and if I write something I feel, I think that’s pretty mass appeal. I’m not very elitist with music. Love is universal; a great melody is universal; it goes around the world; it’s not just American. A great song can touch the world.

Diane Warren

I just love a slow groove. I feel so comfortable in it. But I listen to a lot of fast music, a lot of techno and house.

Chet Faker

My parents were music lovers and collectors. It was around.

Boz Scaggs

I love song writing, so I’m always happy to write for other musicians.

Sean Kingston

I love slow music.

Norah Jones

I love to sing! To be in a movie with musical number is the coolest thing ever!

Ashley Tisdale

I love music more just in and of itself. I love harmony and rhythm.

Edgar Winter

Grade 9: I was too small for football, too shy for drama class, but I did have a passion for music. And so, with a mouth full of braces (and a glorious mullet), I accepted that the trombone would be a fantastic scholastic counterpart to my extracurricular loves: country music, and the guitar.

Jason McCoy

Up until the last minute, it was art and drawing for me. That was the first real and natural thing I thought I was good at and loved to do. But I developed a similar kind of love for music.

James Bay

To be in the music industry, to be in any kind of entertainment industry, you really, really have to be passionate about it and love it and persevere, because if that passion isn’t there, it’s easy to give up. If you really want it, the ambition is there, it’ll come. It’s definitely harder work than some people think.

Alexandra Chando

I just love to play and I get a chance to play with other musicians and I jump on it.

Chad Smith

Great art is as irrational as great music. It is mad with its own loveliness.

George Jean Nathan

A big part of making music is the discovery aspect, is the surprise aspect. That’s why I think I’ll always love sampling. Because it involves combining the music fandom: collecting, searching, discovering music history, and artifacts of recording that you may not have known existed and you just kind of unlock parts of your brain, you know?

Gotye

I hope people half my age and twice my age will listen to my music – I want it to live forever and for my audience to feel like they have a friend in my music. Music is a spirit. It heals. It’s an amazing thing to be loved and appreciated, and sometimes, music has not just been my best friend, it’s been my only friend.

Hunter Hayes

I love arranging my music, not in alphabetical order but by mood, creating playlists for when I have energy and want to work out or go-out party mixes and music to chill out to.

Natasha Bedingfield

Well I was on the one hand, the more I played the guitar the more I began to really love the guitar and to love virtually any kind of music that anybody played well on guitar.

John Fahey

I was always in love with music, but my parents never really saw that I had talent, and it was really just by chance that I made it into the Menuhin School, and from then on my life changed. And that was when I realized, OK, this is what I want to do. But, until then, it was really just a passion, a hobby.

Richard Hyung-ki Joo

If you are a reader of ‘Harper’s Bazaar,’ to me, you are a woman who loves fashion, but not just fashion; you love fashion, you love travel, you love art, you love music.

Carine Roitfeld

For people who love Tribe, I’m the defector. They say, ‘You should get back with Ali to do the beats.’ But a lot of people don’t realize I did all the music in Tribe. In the first three albums, I did all the beats!

Q-Tip

There are plenty of actors who’ve caught the singing bug and vice versa, but with musical performers, you’re constantly a persona – which is something I love about acting: you play a character, you leave and you get to be yourself again.

Freddie Stroma

English and world music were something that I had immense love for, and to get together with a fellow Indian and bring this sound and vibe to the world feels great.

Armaan Malik

Music has always been a large part of my life, and I’m very fortunate to be able to start a career doing something I love.

Armaan Malik

What I love about Beyonce is she’s not a slave to a genre of music.

Tessanne Chin

I just wanted to be like J.Lo when I started. The last thing I want to be is a model-slash-actress. But I love actress-slash-musicians.

Cara Delevingne

Dancing and music were my first love. I was happiest at being a chorus boy.

Adam Shankman

I’ve always loved English and loved English music and TV shows.

Sara Sampaio

When I heard Elvis Presley, then I knew I had to do music. Music is my god, and is the only love that has never left me. It has always been there and is my best friend.

Ville Valo

I love film, but it’s bringing me away from music. Singing is what I’m probably most passionate about.

Mandy Moore

My favorite music is ’80s music which drives people around me crazy. I really love it.

Michael Buble

It’s such a lonely existence, living with a rock n’ roller. No matter how much he loves you, he will always love his music more.

Anita Pallenberg

I really like jazz and soul, but I also love so many other types of music, and I didn’t want to be afraid to blend and experiment.

Andra Day

I felt from time to time that shooting live music is the most purely cinematic thing you can do. Ideally, the cinema is becoming one with the music. There is little artifice involved. There’s no acting. I love it.

Jonathan Demme

When I decided to be a musician I reckoned that that was going to be the way of less profit, less money. I was sort of giving up the idea of making a lot of money. It was what I loved to do. I would have done it anyway. If I’d had to work at Taco Bell I’d have still been out at night trying to play music.

Tom Petty

I’m surrounded by music; I always was when I was growing up and continue to be. And I love music. And when I imagine a fictional world, I imagine there’s music in it for those people, too.

Lorrie Moore

I have to have music playing constantly. It creates the tone and mood for anything you are doing. I specifically love rock, and Jimi Hendrix is one of my favorite artists. My favorite song is ‘Red House,’ because it’s heavy on the blues.

Marisa Miller

Pop music I have always loved best.

John Lydon

I totally love to act. I don’t care if it’s a musical, a comedy. I just like to work and interact with other people.

Reba McEntire

When you look at Michael Jackson, there’s nobody who loves him in that family, nobody. If they did, they’d tell him he didn’t have to do all that in order to be famous. All he has to do is keep doing his music and be himself. Michael’s been a little touched for about 20 years, but somebody needs to pull him aside and tell him they love him.

Jamie Foxx

My mum was a big fan of E.L.O. and Elvis Costello. She used to play that, consistently, all the time when we were kids. And my dad, he would claim to be a singer… You know, he loves singing, and he used to sing a lot when he was a kid and at parties and stuff like that. So I come from a very party-musical family.

James Vincent McMorrow

I love making music so it’s important for me to keep doing that even if the schedule is busy.

Michael Kiwanuka

Music has been a huge passion of mine ever since I started playing the piano at age 3. Going to concerts, performing on my own, and listening to my favorite artists growing up confirmed that love for music and made me want to pursue it as a career.

Daya

There are many things I love in this world. Music, acting, and animals are at the top of that list.

Orlando Brown

As much as I love music, in my mind, photography is what makes me the happiest – that’s for sure.

Julian Lennon

People that love this form of music have loved it from way back – Sabbath, Zeppelin, the early days.

Dimebag Darrell

Though I’m getting a lot of acting offers, I’d like to enter only when I’m ready. My first love will always be music.

Armaan Malik

The U.K. is one of the places that has always been an advocate of my music and I spend a lot of time touring here. I’ve got family and friends over here, but more than that, there’s a large Jamaican community and the Jamaican culture is very widespread in the U.K. which I love.

Damian Marley

I really love music, and I definitely love playing music and getting to be a part of music.

Tift Merritt

I love to make music and stay grounded.

Annie Lennox

I love 70’s music.

Laura Linney

I’ve always loved music and held it as a sacred thing that I can’t touch, as I don’t really want to deconstruct it or be a musician.

Aaron Koblin

Music is the best way for me to say I love you.

Mireille Mathieu

The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere – in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and in ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming.

John O’Donohue

I love spin classes. I’m also very big on music, so I make a mix on my iPod that’s 45 minutes to an hour long of music that pumps me up so I know how much time I’ve been at the gym without looking at the clock. Put your favorite songs towards the end of the mix, so this way you keep going until you hear your favorite song.

Candice Accola

Everybody comments that I’m white. I’m surprised I haven’t gotten more criticism for it. I’m always expecting any day now it’s gonna come. I guess I just attribute the lack of hate to people hearing the music and hearing how much I genuinely love it.

Mayer Hawthorne

I started playing guitar when I was 6 or 7 years old, and I think that, within a week of getting my first guitar, I started writing music. I just love it.

Robby Benson

You can go to see a singer and love the show, but you don’t need to know all the songs. What you want to do when you leave is go and find out more about the music.

Savion Glover

Personally, I love music, as it’s my first love, and if I ever act, it has to be something close to music. That’s when I will feel great about doing it.

Armaan Malik

I believe that tracks speak to me. Some tracks make me write certain music or make me feel sad or inspire me to write a sad love song. Each track has its feeling to me.

Missy Elliott

I’m a musician first, a food-lover second, a dirty mouth with feet, and a girl last time I checked.

Tori Amos

I love film, and I would love to be a part of something that people universally love as a piece of film. Sure. Of course I would. And I would love to take acting lessons, and see that side of it someday. But I’m a musician.

Norah Jones

I’m never uncomfortable with anything I do. I never feel like I regret anything. I love music, you know? All kinds of music.

Juicy J

I love doing the voice of Batman because of the quality of the animation. The music is particularly incredible. Another bonus is getting the opportunity to work with some very respected actors who do not usually do voice work.

Kevin Conroy

Times were changing. Clothes were changing. Morals were changing. We went from romantic loves songs like I used to do to rock ‘n roll. Now that has changed to rap. So, there’s always a new generation with new music.

Bobby Vinton

All guys get into music because they love music and they also want to get the girls.

Quincy Jones

I really look forward to putting on a record. I love writing music and think that may be my strong suit even more than singing. I can’t wait to take that music on tour and share it with as many people as I can.

James Wolpert

My grandfather played a mandolin, so I got my hands on that. Then on down to a banjo, and I found I couldn’t play any kind of soft or mournful music with that so I took up the fiddle in my late 20s or early 30s – and that was far too late. But it keeps me off the streets. It has been a love of mine since I was 17 maybe.

Brendan Gleeson

As an architect, you have to provide a shelter to enjoy art. And you have to love art. It’s like when you make a concert hall. You must love music. This is the reason why you make the space, to enjoy music – making a space for art is the same thing.

Renzo Piano

I’d love to make short film videos pushing the conventional standards of what a country music video can be.

Sturgill Simpson

I’ve always just adored music. It’s my first love, really. I admire and respect people in the music business. You really have to work hard and diligently. Sometimes actors can be lazy and get away with it, but you can’t do that if you’re a musician.

Blythe Danner

‘You Can’t Take It With You’ has eighteen people onstage at one point. Musicals entail a larger collaboration, and I love that.

Scott Ellis

I get up, and boy, I can’t wait to paint and study music and keep learning. I just love it.

Tony Bennett

I love country music so much. I love all kinds of music. But when it comes down to it, I’m from East Tennessee, and country melodies and country songs have always just sliced me in the heart.

Ashley Monroe

I’ve been singing since I was two. Music was my first passion and I love writing, singing, creating and being creative.

JoJo

I love to listen to lots of different genres of music, but mostly movie soundtracks and music theater.

Joseph Gatt

I love dive bars, old movie theaters, live music and good food. The simplest things in life for me are the most important.

Tanya Fischer

I would love to expose multiple younger generations to Frank’s music. It’s not an easy task because It’s not ever going to be plastered all over the radio for the masses.

Dweezil Zappa

I love all kinds of music.

Boz Scaggs

I love all kinds of art. I mean, I love sketching and acting and music.

Amandla Stenberg

I love making music. That’s what I love to do. So I don’t feel like there’s any need to take a break unless I want to.

Rihanna

I also love Dido and Nelly Furtado and people who are really into their music like that. And I love Renee Zellweger.

Hilary Duff

When I first was exposed to ‘Porgy and Bess’ many, many years ago, I was blown away by it – loved the music, overwhelmed by the production at the Met that I saw, and thought I want to play Bess someday. But I also knew they were stereotypes that were considered racist.

Audra McDonald

Without a doubt, my richest relationships are my long-term friendships with musical partners, because we make music together. That’s what we love to do with our lives.

Chick Corea

I buy everything India Arie, just because she’s such a positive person, and I just love her music. Her music’s so soulful… I think Kanye West is a genius musically.

Tika Sumpter

I give my heart in every single session I’ve done, and I get into the music. I love all kinds of music, and I try and really be as authentic as possible and give from my heart.

Harvey Mason, Jr.

Cooking is like music: you can tell when someone puts love into it. I come from a place where there was so much attention to detail. The population is smaller in the South, so more attention is given to serving smaller numbers of people.

Taylor Hicks

To be honest, I’m really into folk music, and I love Big Phony. I like Priscilla Ahn, and yeah, I really support Asian-American artists.

Justin Chon

As soon as I went to painting school in New York, I took an experimental film course, and everything clicked and came together. I realized my love of music and drama and the visual arts all came together. This happened in 1989. Since then, it’s been a long road of educating myself in every possible way.

Patty Jenkins

I love many kinds of music: world music, jazz, classical, pop.

Anita Diament

Whatever my recorded output is, it’s a reflection of a general love of music.

Pat Metheny

I feel so at home on the stage, and I love making people happy with my music. Whatever I have to go through to make that happen and get that sunshine is worth it.

Hiromi Uehara

I just love music gear, I’m a total geek all around.

Hunter Hayes

If people would like to come to my concerts I’d love them to come. And if they like the music that I make, I love that too. But I do not make music for other people. I make it to please myself.

David Gilmour

I’ve made money, and I’ve been ripped off. I’ve had creative freedom, and I’ve been pressured to make hits. I have dealt with diva behavior from crazy musicians, and I have seen genius records by wonderful artists get completely ignored. I love music. I always will.

David Byrne

That’s what I love about music. It’s immediate. There’s a connection whether you are playing at Hyde Park or Chicago, and it’s been happening since the beginning of time and the troubadours.

Joe Perry

Love cannot express the idea of music, while music may give an idea of love.

Hector Berlioz

I’ve always been in love with that Delta-flavored music… the music that came from Mississippi and Memphis and, especially, New Orleans. When I was 14, I was in a wanna-be New Orleans band in Toronto.

Robbie Robertson

I love the music of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu and more recently the music of Laura Marling. All these women share a strength and a wisdom in their voices and music that really makes me want to make music and sing.

Lianne La Havas

I’d really started hating music. I’d started hating all the songs, hating being in the industry, hating doing the shows. So I had to learn to love music again if I wanted to continue doing this.

Estelle

I’m such a lover of music that it would be very hard for me to pinpoint it to a particular artist.

Bobby Sherman

I love contrast in music. Being inspired by classical, actually – in high school especially – classical and metal both, I remember having this cool realization that they are really similar. It’s just different instrumentation.

Amy Lee

I really love jazz, but I will never be a jazz musician as much as I dream. But, I think that the jazz music I love is there in my music.

Laura Mvula

I love my pop music.

Rita Ora

I ended up having my first girlfriend when I was 13, and she was obsessed with Justin Bieber. I remember watching the ‘Baby’ music video and being so jealous of him. So I posted a cover of ‘One Time’ on YouTube, and she loved it.

Jacob Whitesides

I’ve wanted to be Mick Jagger since I was 18. One of the things I love about music is that you don’t have to be dependent on other people like you are in the film business. I hate being dependent on anyone. With my music, I can do whatever I want. I also think it’s made me more relaxed as an actress.

Emmanuelle Seigner

I completely love playing and designing games and always will. I am so into games that I listen to game music all day. That may sound strange, but you can guarantee I’m a hardcore gamer and would never let you down by designing a crappy title.

John Romero

My favorite type of music to sing to would be rock and roll, Tenacious D, Led Zeppelin, some Queen – I love all of them. I love singing to them because they’re all just great voices. I love listening to very obscure jazz.

Casey Abrams

We do it because we love to play music and that’s what we’re all about.

Caroline Corr

I love making music and all that, but at the end of the day I don’t think that’s what people are going to remember about a person.

Carrie Underwood

I’m not giving up my history and what I’ve done in my music because I love it and I’m very proud of it. I just want to open it up for more people.

LL Cool J

I love acting, but music is so much more rewarding because it’s more personal.

Drake Bell

I saw some musicals at dinner theaters where I grew up. But I didn’t go to a big theater to see one until probably after I graduated from high school when I took myself to see ‘Tommy’ when it was on tour. I absolutely loved it.

Amy Adams

I love English rock music the best and have always been fascinated by The Clash, especially Joe Strummer, their singer.

Carla Bruni

I would love to be able to program myself to pick up any instrument and to be able to play it very, very well, and to be able to read music and dance as well. I’m very uncoordinated, and I’d love to be able to bust a really great move.

Dichen Lachman

I love rock music, I love country music – I love all music, let’s be honest!

Fefe Dobson

I genuinely love Oasis, and I also genuinely love Beyonce. My body gets the same pleasure. If you like different types of music, it’s OK to say it.

Chris Martin

If I am able to carry on modeling, I’ll be very happy to, but my passion is definitely in music and acting. I would love to do what Meryl Streep is doing. Her or Judi Dench, or maybe Charlize Theron as well.

Cara Delevingne

What’s great about musicals is their energy and go-for-brokeness – stopping the story to sing and dance. How can you not love that?

Damien Chazelle

I kind of consider myself a chameleon in music. I love all sorts of music.

Nick Carter

I play music because I love it and I’ll keep playin’ till I’m old.

Jake Bugg

Religion is a huge part of me; I’m a practicing Muslim. I’m pretty much open about it if people were to answer questions. At the end of the day, I’m just a normal girl. I have my own beliefs just like everyone else. I have a strong belief in something, but I also love music.

Yuna

I love music, I make films with music, I eat with music, I sleep with music, I think with music. Music makes me dream; it strengthens my creativity.

Bahman Ghobadi

It’s really important to me that my sound is a combination of beats and melody. I love hearing strong, confident beats in music because I love to dance. At the same time, melody is really important to me because I love singing.

Manika

I remember Alicia Keys and Usher had released a song called ‘My Boo,’ and my music teacher got me to sing a duet with a friend of mine, and I remember being so nervous because I loved to sing, but I could never fathom singing by myself. And when I did that, I remember how proud I was of myself. I was 12.

Seinabo Sey

It was my love for the guitar that first got me into music and singing. Growing up, I was inspired by The Beatles and Bob Dylan. Damian Rice was a huge influence for me musically.

Ed Sheeran

Romantic music really stirs my soul. And, of course, I love Chinese music; it makes me feel closer to home.

Liu Wen

I gave up on music. I still love to play, but it’s too hard to make a living. And I think that was a mature decision to make.

Levi Dylan

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.

Billy Joel

I have always loved music and singing, and I am open to listen to any type of music. Regardless of my mood, my heart is always set racing when I listen to opera. When I decide which music I want to hear, my choice is almost invariably an opera recording.

Andrea Bocelli

Most people can’t see beauty and love. I see our music as medicine.

Maurice White

I love the incredible variety of demands directing makes on you, from the entrepreneur to the hustler to the deal-maker to the writer; to directing actors and the camera and working with music, sound, marketing and promotion. It uses so many sides of your brain.

Tom Hooper

AC/DC, Def Leppard, Alice Cooper – I learned stories of all these guys. That’s when I fell in love with Queen, which is one of my favorite bands of all time… I started paying attention to what made music good. I started paying attention to why I liked it.

Rico Love

I think I’ll always live in Fort Worth. It’s great that I can now go anywhere I want to play music, but I love coming back here. I can roll down the streets and just reminisce.

Leon Bridges

Music is something that I have to do on a regular basis. It really is my life and I absolutely love it. It’s a part of my day-to-day. So if I had to choose, it would be music. But I love acting too.

JoJo

My father, a mining engineer and colliery manager, gave his brood many advantages not least of which, for me, was his love of singing which gave music a central place in our lives.

James W. Black

A studio is like a meditation room where music is created. And a live performance is the place where the creation of the studio is taken ahead. I love both.

Shreya Ghoshal

I’m a songwriter; that’s where it starts. I love writing with someone that shares that same feeling of accomplishment. I’ll play music for my fans as long as they’ll listen, but I fancy myself as a writer first.

Randy Houser

Music expresses longing and love and joy better than any piece of dialogue you can ever write.

Marsha Norman

I have no clue as to where my interest and love for music came from. In fact, I have never learnt any music either, though I wish that I could just close my eyes and play the piano – that is my most cherished desire.

Dhanush

Music is only love looking for words.

Lawrence Durrell

I love ‘White Christmas.’ That’s one of my favorites just because I love the music. I love the story, Bing Crosby. It’s just one of my all time favorites. And it’s hard to have a Christmas without seeing a little bit of Jimmy Stewart and angels running around town.

Scott Bakula

I just love making music, and I wouldn’t want to stop.

Brendon Urie

I love Indian music very much, but I haven’t studied that specifically.

Lee Konitz

I had no idea that I could sustain a career as an artist. But, I loved music and wanted to be in the music business.

Ray Stevens

If you listen to my tapes, you’d hear 14 different ways to arrange the rhythm guitar behind the harmony vocal, and then 14 different ways with a different vocal. You’d have to really be a music lover to sit through that and find it entertaining. I enjoy it, but I’m easy to please.

Tom Scholz

‘m not saying I would never do acting again, because I love it, but there really is nothing compared to getting up in front of people and singing your music.

Schuyler Fisk

I was born with this love for music, and I say ‘born with’ because I don’t really remember a day waking up and deciding that I’m going do to music. It’s been all I’ve ever done and all I’ve ever wanted to do.

Hunter Hayes

I never watch TV. I’m a Radio Four addict. I love listening to music too.

Louise Jameson

People say, ‘Gee, you don’t really do political music.’ Well, I sing a lot of songs about how men and women and lovers treat each other, and none of us want to be talked down to or belittled or ignored or disrespected… So I’m proud to be a feminist.

Bonnie Raitt

I always wanted everyone to love me, probably because I didn’t love myself enough. But now I realize that when you’re an artist, you’re making the music that’s in your head and in your heart, and not for any other reason.

Mike Posner

I love doing fiction. I love doing performance films and I love doing documentaries that don’t have music. I love to shoot and I love to shoot things I’m enthusiastic about.

Jonathan Demme

When I was first writing, I was writing mostly about sporting events, which was really what my assignments were. I was working on the Tour de France bike race and the Barcelona Olympic Games, and those songs tend to be very big, very bombastic-type music, which is the type of music that I love to write.

John Tesh

It may not be the most popular but there is a place for it. I think about the kind of music I love, acoustic, melodic, and I guess it kind of took a bit of courage on my part to think I could be one of those songwriters.

Helen Slater

One of my favorite places I’ve visited is Havana, Cuba. On my way home from Costa Rica, I did a week in Havana. The colors, the music, the beautiful men and the cars! I love vintage and antique cars and own a couple myself.

Megalyn Echikunwoke

Man, I just feel so fortunate to be a jazz musician at all. I have a hard time thinking of it any other way. It’s such a fulfilling vocation. I love it.

Kurt Elling

My music is just about story telling. I don’t have much to say, and I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind. I’m just singing through conviction about what I love and what I care about, starting with the very small.

Sufjan Stevens

I love music. I think it’s a higher art form, in a way, than movies. You know, a film you see once, maybe twice. A song will follow you forever. It’s a magical thing.

Malik Bendjelloul

Yet, it ought to be obvious that good music generally occupies a higher plane that mere politics. Great writers can express moods through melody and capture experiences we share most powerfully – love, lust, longing; joy, rage, fear; triumph, yearning and confusion.

Tony Snow

What you want is for music to love you back. That’s why you pay your dues. You want to feel like you belong and are part of this symbiosis, metamorphosis, whatever you want to call it.

Tom Waits

I grew up with music very much in my life. I achieved success by combining my training as an accountant with my family upbringing and love of music.

Zarin Mehta

Everyone has their own path in life, no matter if it’s being a celebrity or a singer. Quite frankly, I didn’t move to Nashville and tell myself I wanted to be a singer because I wanted to be a celebrity or I wanted to be somebody that people admired. I wasn’t about that. I just loved music.

Jake Owen

I just love music – by no stretch of the imagination am I professionally competent.

Vikram Seth

In some ways, I feel like I was Nirvana’s biggest fan in the Nineties. I’m sure there are a zillion people who would make that claim, but I was just so passionately in love with the music that it made me feel sick. It made my heart hurt.

Rivers Cuomo

When I was growing up, there were so many musicals you could watch. I like the fantasy of musicals and I love music.

Queen Latifah

My mother and dad loved music, were very much into music.

Jim Foglesong

Tower Records was a place to meet your friends, your co-workers or a place to meet new friends who shared a common love of music, literature and all things cultural.

Colin Hanks

While most of the music I write is instrumental, I love to use the human voice as another instrument.

Yanni

I love music videos, I really do. I think it’s kind of sad that it’s a dying art form.

Adam Levine

High school and college were my punk, formative years. I was playing hardcore, learning to be a musician. In bands, you tour, but you’re paid nothing; you’re playing to 50 people in a basement, sleeping in a van, and you love it.

Steve Aoki

I love Ray Charles. He can still teach everybody a lot about how to make great music. Not necessarily how to make hits, but how to make great music. Of course, part of it is his incredible talent. Who are the greatest jazz singers in the world? Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and Ray Charles.

Ahmet Ertegun

Pop music I have always loved best. But the more extreme, fascist-led examples of the music business I tend to detest the most.

John Lydon

Nashville is wicked. It’s like a proper music community, but it’s also quintessentially American. You bump into people there with cowboy hats that spit in jars and call you ‘boy.’ I just love that.

Ed Sheeran

Just coming from a musical family, I was always surrounded by it. On the car rides to school, my mom loved playing A Tribe Called Quest and the Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,’ and then my dad was listening to a lot of Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder.

Jillian Hervey

I miss my dad, yes. But I try to honor his memory, as well as all the victims of Hurricane Katrina, through the love I have for all humanity, a love I try to express through my music.

Irvin Mayfield

I’ve grown up with country music. I love how real everybody is, not just the artists, but the fans.

Julianne Hough

I do know that country music is driven by the songs. I think there’s probably a core of what the material is about, which is family and love and the ups and downs of life, and I think that resonates with people.

Jimi Westbrook

Life is all about the friendship and the love and the music. It sounds silly, but it is. I want to have that experience as much as I can as an adult, not as a kid doing something that people are telling her she has to do. If anyone gets in my way, I’m going to get them out of my way.

Fiona Apple

The ’60s is one of my favourite eras in general. I love ’60s music, and I’ve always wanted to do a period film.

Zoe Kravitz

I always loved Sam Cooke, because he seemed very versatile. He sang gospel, soul, blues, pop music.

Aaron Neville

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.

Ben Gibbard

If you know what you want to do, as I always loved musicals, and then to have been lucky enough to be successful with them, I think that’s all you can ask isn’t it? I think I don’t really think too much about it. I am a bit shy socially, yeah, I admit that.

Andrew Lloyd Webber

I’ve grown to love California: It’s the dream of every English musician to come here and work in the sunshine. To walk up Sunset Boulevard, knowing you’re going to make music – that’s it.

Noel Gallagher

I love the outdoor festival feeling. When I’m on stage, it’s very gratifying to watch people on the lawns enjoying the music with a glass of wine.

Joshua Bell

I’m making music for the people. If y’all love the music, y’all gonna buy the music.

The Notorious B.I.G.

It’s not like if I play in big places I won’t be happy. But I don’t want to start adapting to what’s in style to make my music. I want to stay true to my roots, to keep making the music I love, that comes from my soul. And if there are people who want to listen to it, I’m happy.

Juanes

Anyone who knows classical music and loves classical music has heard the Beethoven Seventh hundreds of times probably in their life.

Joshua Bell

I love doing music, and I plan to do it until I die or as long as I can walk to the piano.

Andrae Crouch

I have studios in the different places where I live – in Ibiza, Paris and London – but they’re not crazy studios, they’re just rooms with good monitors, and all I do is plug my laptop in. It’s a different way to make music, but for me, I love it, because it’s more connected to the world.

David Guetta

I don’t regard myself as a great classical or jazz pianist. I like country music, but I’m not a great player. I just like music. Drums ‘n’ bass is pretty exciting and I’d love to explore it.

Keith Emerson

The fact that we elected Obama was a sign that the black struggle inherent in the blues and so much of the music I have loved can triumph.

Jack White

Well, growing up in the ’90s, my first true love was ska music.

Ezra Koenig

Distance doesn’t exist, in fact, and neither does time. Vibrations from love or music can be felt everywhere, at all times.

Yoko Ono

Learning music by reading about it is like making love by mail.

Luciano Pavarotti

Only in country music can you compare an old pickup truck and an old guitar to your wife and turn it into a love song… Thank God for country music.

Dierks Bentley

All the musicians I loved growing up were men. I loved Leonard Cohen, Mick Jagger. I loved Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys. Even today, I love Van McCann from Catfish and the Bottlemen and Matt Healy from The 1975.

Halsey

Before college, I acted in my room, to classical music, because music tells stories. I’d put on a record and proceed, silently. I’d keep putting the needle back to a certain segment because I hadn’t died well enough. I had to really, really feel dead. I’d love to do a death scene.

Amanda Plummer

I grew up listening to everything. I have such a love for music, but I don’t want to make the same album over and over again.

Carrie Underwood

The industrial thing came about mainly through giving up trying to write pop songs in the early ’90s. I don’t think I was ever very good at pop music and as soon as I stopped trying, and started to write more the things I loved, it became much heavier and more aggressive.

Gary Numan

TLC has helped me to know that as a musician, I can talk about anything; that there are no barriers, and that you can be yourself. That’s what I love about them. Left Eye in particular helped me to stay on top of my A game. She’s one of the best female MCs that I’ve heard.

Lil Mama

I love films. I love music. I love poetry and stories. All of that I feel… I sort of get very excited and fed by.

Ben Whishaw

I’ve always loved to incorporate music into acting because I have a passion for both.

Luke Benward

I want to make music that somehow connects to the things that I love in America music.

Joanna Newsom

I made the big turnaround in the early Nineties when I started hearing all the tenth generation punk bands like Green Day and Offspring and all those people. It just made me fall in love with punk again and remember my roots, and since that time I’ve always wanted to do more of that kind of music again.

Jane Wiedlin

I would love to continue in music, with writing… but I am not the kind of person who will hang around if I start to become irrelevant. If that happens, I will bow down gracefully, raise my kids, and have a garden. And I am going to let my hair go gray when I am older. I don’t need to be blonde when I’m 60!

Taylor Swift

Singing is more of a hobby than really something I want to do for a career. But I love musical theater, so I’m hoping I can go back to it and do a role on Broadway for a few weeks. That would be a dream come true. My dream role would be Roxie in ‘Chicago.’

Jillian Rose Reed

I’ve been gearing up for this future of writing a lot of new music by digging into my favorite old stuff, and twisting it around and highlighting the things I really love.

Caroline Shaw

We have this really retro vibe and style of songwriting and, personally, I wasn’t embracing the current state of music until I fell in love with hip-hop. It felt good to suddenly embrace where music was headed, and I think hip-hop is the best at that, because it feels so progressive and everybody wants to be the best.

Nate Ruess

I do love country music.

Kesha

We love playing music but we’re too weird to play music.

Wayne Coyne

The most moving scene for me in ‘Pride and Prejudice’ is the Pemberley music room scene: Elizabeth has just saved Darcy’s sister from embarrassment and confusion, and as the music plays on, Darcy’s look of gratitude becomes a look of love, which we see reciprocated in Elizabeth’s eyes.

Andrew Davies

I was just a music lover who wondered what it would sound like if Otis Redding strapped on a guitar and played in a punk band. That’s it.

Benjamin Booker

I do what I love, thank God. I get to make music and get inspiration through Judaism. I can see why people might be surprised, because it’s not been done before. It’s certainly not typical. People are always trying to wrap head their around it. But it’s probably simpler than everyone thinks.

Matisyahu

I could sing you a thousand and one doo-wop songs. I love the simplicity in that music. It’s not super-poetic, it’s just from the heart.

Bruno Mars

I started as a musician. I play the saxophone, but from the age of 17, I realised that it’s very hard to make a living as a jazz musician in Australia. So I went for an audition and got an acting job and, fortunately, I completely fell in love with that.

John Polson

The relationship between art and a job is not quite linear, but I really love any and all manifestations of art, really respect any kind of artistic impulse, whether it’s paintings and sculptures or really good filmmaking or music. I really see the relationships between these different mediums as very fluid.

Lily Cole

I love working and writing new songs. But sometimes you need to wait, to have something in your mind, and then you can let yourself play music.

Yann Tiersen

I see my fans as music lovers. I really love that. There’s no age group or demographic. It’s people of all ages and backgrounds. Country people and non-country people. I wanted to make music across the board.

Kacey Musgraves

Of course I have bills to pay, but at the same time, it’s more about the passion and the love, and I think that’s where music should come from, the heart, not necessarily just to cash a check.

Ludacris

I don’t care if Margot is a Dame of the British Empire or older than myself. For me she represents eternal youth; there is an absolute musical quality in her beautiful body and phrasing. Because we are sincere and gifted, an intense abstract love is born between us every time we dance together.

Rudolf Nureyev

I always loved music and was drawn to it and affected by it. But it wasn’t until I got to San Diego that I started exploring music more.

Andra Day

I’ve always, especially through old Hollywood musicals, loved just to watch tap dancing; I adore it. I think it’s fantastic.

Damien Chazelle

I hardly ever get asked about music. I do, however, get asked about the ‘Addicted to Love’ video and my suits on a daily basis.

Robert Palmer

I really do love bluesy-jazzy music, so I love Etta James, B.B. King and Billie Holiday. I love that they have soul in their voices – I think that’s something important is having.

Bridgit Mendler

I understand why it’s hard to pin me down because I really relate to so many things. Like, for example, when people ask me what’s my favorite music, I can’t tell them. I love everything.

Lindsay Pearce

I have such a love of good music that I find even melancholic music uplifting. Maybe I’m a rare breed.

Anton Corbijn

Once I discovered how important writing music was to me and just what a huge weight it lifted off of me, I knew that it was going to be the biggest part of my life, the biggest love of my life, the biggest thing in my life.

Banks

My main goal in life is to be happy. If I can make other people happy by doing what I love, then I feel like I’ve done everything in life that I’ve wanted. I just want to make people feel good and change people’s lives with music, and that’s it.

Cyrille Aimee

I love heavy music. I keep Flume nice and melodic, so I save the angry, testosterone-fueled heavy stuff for What So Not. I think it’s a good defining thing for the two projects.

Flume

I don’t want to be an artist, go on tour and make a video and wear sexy clothes. I would just love to make music.

Rashida Jones

I am fascinated by the places that music comes from, like fife-and-drum blues from southern Mississippi or Cajun music out of Lafayette, Louisiana, shape-note singing, old harp singing from the mountains – I love that stuff. It’s like the beginning of rock and roll: something comes down from the hills, and something comes up from the delta.

Robbie Robertson

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 3]

I love working with different musicians in the studio, that’s a real joy working with someone for the first time.

Bob Seger

Dirty martinis and music – that’s the big motto in our family. We get the booze going, and the music starts playing. Always old-school hip-hop. Jay-Z. Tribe Called Quest. The Pharcyde. My parents love that stuff.

Matt Harvey

Egon Schiele is my favorite painter. There’s just something about art – photography, painting, music, plays – whatever you see, sometimes there’s a gut reaction that’s more important or more visceral than what your brain is thinking about. You can’t explain that reaction. It’s like what happens when you fall in love.

Albert Hammond, Jr.

I love music. It’s always been very dear to me. It’s a big passion.

Tiffany Trump

One of things I’d love to do one day is a Shakespeare with Trevor Nunn. I’ve done musicals with him, but never Shakespeare. There’s no one better.

Hugh Jackman

As a musician, you just want to be able to do what you love.

Andy Grammer

I love to perform not only music, but to make performances extremely visual, and create almost a magical fantasy. It’s really an uplifting style of art that combines visuals and music in very dreamlike ways.

Lindsey Stirling

We love a good, hyped sound, but when it starts to sound insincere, that’s when I lose interest. I hope that our music, even if it sounds polished, doesn’t sound insincere.

Nate Ruess

Music has always been my first love, so making music happen is a big priority of mine.

Hayley Orrantia

People ask you all the time, ‘Why do you do this? Why don’t you quit, man, take your money and go home?’ I just do it because I love making music.

Ronnie Dunn

The music field was the first to break down racial barriers, because in order to play together, you have to love the people you are playing with, and if you have any racial inhibitions, you wouldn’t be able to do that.

Oscar Peterson

I know there’s a certain love and affection for the homemade on the Internet, and I’m all for that, too, and I appreciate it in alternative music, and I appreciate it in B-movies and in Sundance, independent films.

Robert Englund

Well, I love what you would call boys’ music, you know, the prodigy, banging techno, music that girls generally don’t like.

Chris Lowe

I feel blessed and humbled that people have loved my music. Nothing would be possible without their acceptance.

A. R. Rahman

I love music so much. I’ve got something going all the time. I’ve gotta be singing. I’ve gotta be creating music, or I’m not happy.

Ashley Monroe

I’m not a big fan of the thought that you can become a star by winning a contest. I’m sort of old-fashioned. I think people need to get out there and they need to work and they need to do their music because they love it. If they become successful, then great, and if they are not, whatever.

Rob Zombie

I try to make an album that reflects what I love about country music. It’s not just all about happy parties all the time. There are some sad songs.

Dierks Bentley

As a songwriter, pop music really is a love and a joy and a science, and I feel like a lot of people look at pop music with a very formulaic perspective in numbers and patterns, but an outsider would think that the process is very natural.

Halsey

I play guitar and I love the Beatles and melodic music.

Stephen Dorff

I love seeing live music.

Jessica Szohr

I think most music provides the same messages – whether it be ‘I’m unhappy’ or ‘I love a girl.’ I just liked the package of rap music.

Iggy Azalea

If you listen to a lot of the songs that are popular now, there’s very little melody in there. People love the beat. But to musicians, it’s melody, because we understand how elusive it is and how hard it is to hold.

Branford Marsalis

I think you really have to remember what you loved about making music in the first place. Ultimately, people can be like, ‘We’ve seen this dude in many movies,’ but if they hear a song and they’re feeling it, they can look past all the personal things and not hold it against you that you’re also an actor.

Common

I also loved musicals because I was a dancer.

Donna Mills

Pop music can absorb so many peculiar talents, ranging from the completely nonmusical poseur who just uses music as a kind of springboard for a sense of style, to people who just love putting all that complicated stuff together, brick by brick, on their computers, to people like me who like playing conceptual games and being surprised.

Brian Eno

I never wanted to really make a career out of doing Christian music exclusively, but I love it to my core. I love music. I love what I’m doing now.

Debby Boone

I equally love both, classic rock and hip-hop. I love all music, really, and I really use classic rock a lot. I’m heavily influenced by that melodically in my music. I can’t really separate the two.

Yelawolf

I’ve never been bored in my life, man. I’ve never been bored or lonely. Are you kidding? No way! I’m an orchestrator, a musician, a producer. I love everything. I’ve studied languages from Farsi to Greek to French, Swedish, Russian… How can you get bored?

Quincy Jones

I always loved all kinds of music. I would watch musicals a lot as a kid, on TV, watch the Fred Astaire movies. I’d watch ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I was a big Jerry Lewis fan, and they’d have these big bands and someone singing – some siren, or some guy singing some gorgeous song. I was always enamored of that style of music.

Queen Latifah

I can play punk rock, and I love playing punk rock, but I was into every other style of music before I played punk rock.

Travis Barker

I think, for one thing, all of us remember those teenage years and those songs that we fell in love with and the music scene that we were part of. So, in a certain way, music cuts through time like almost nothing else. You know, it makes us feel like we’re back in an earlier moment.

Jennifer Egan

In ‘Seesaw,’ I played Gittel Mosca, and because it was a musical, I loved it more because I was able to do anything. I was able to use all parts of me that I don’t get to use… the comedy and the singing and the dancing.

Michele Lee

I can’t understand Urdu, Bahasa or Russian, but when the Pakistani Faiz, the Indonesian Rendra and the Russian Rosdentvensky declaim, I can feel the living throb of rhythm and music, the warmth and passion of their poetry, as do the hundreds, not a mere roomful, of poetry lovers in the audience.

F. Sionil Jose

I love making records; I love making music; I love writing songs.

Barry Gibb

Being queer you’re supposed to adore figure skating. It’s a sport, not an art. I love the costumes and hate the music and of course I worship Johnny Weir because so does he. Also he’s real. It’s a full gay thing and it always has been.

Mark Morris

Working on music is the funnest thing for me, and I love it, and I could do it all day, all night.

Julian Casablancas

I started out playing traditional jazz, and I still do: I love standards, I love the music. But it must move on, and it must live and breathe, and continue to grow, and continue to change, and continue to mesh with other music – all that kind of stuff. Jazz can be on the playground too, you know.

Robert Glasper

Setting my mind on a musical instrument was like falling in love. All the world seemed bright and changed.

William Christopher Handy

Music is where I have the most creative freedom, but I love producing. To me, that’s kind of where all the action is. You get a chance to have your hands in every aspect of a film. From picking a director, sometimes picking a writer, to the actors, the wardrobe, set design, editing, music, and marketing.

Ice Cube

I still feel like that 17-year-old-kid that fell in love with country music, but I also am allowed to write songs about being a man, too, which I think is the coolest place I’ve ever been in my life.

Dierks Bentley

I know, for me, ‘Grease’ was one of the first musicals that I can really remember watching as a kid, and I kind of fell in love that that genre.

Jacob Artist

I’ve always been real close to film world. I love film, and I will do things in film, but music is more satisfying. It feels more like me.

Robert Coppola Schwartzman

I love the theater as much as music, and the whole idea of getting across to an audience and making them laugh, making them cry – just making them feel – is paramount to me.

Stephen Sondheim

I never thought then I’d be doing what I’m doing now. At my high school, being on the girls soccer team was the cool thing to do, but that was definitely never going to happen for me, so I played music. Not because everyone thought it was awesome, but for the love of it.

Kate Voegele

I love dancing to the radio every morning, to start the day with such passion. Otherwise, life is too sad. My little daughter and I like dancing to classical music: Bach and Schubert.

Anna Mouglalis

I loved ‘White Christmas’ for the music aspect. I was into musical theater.

Lana Parrilla

‘White Christmas’ is one of my favorite movies, so I’ve always just had a love for that kind of golden era musical.

Jessie Mueller

I feel like vocals are to music what portraits are to painting. They’re the humanity. Landscapes are good and fine, but at the end of the day everyone loves the Mona Lisa.

Grimes

If I wanted to be a pop singer, I would have done that 20 years ago. I love country music.

Chely Wright

The reason I like doing these acting projects is because no matter how much acting I do, I’ll always have music in my life. I love having both.

Tyler Hilton

I think I made this decision that I just loved making music, and it didn’t matter what level I got to do it on, and ‘Fight Song’ was this declaration that I’m going to keep going, and I’m going to keep believing in myself, even if it seems like it’s impossible.

Rachel Platten

I love putting the music together. It’s like art.

Erykah Badu

Even today, skiffle is a defining part of my music. If I get the opportunity to just have a jam, skiffle is what I love to play.

Van Morrison

My mum loved Joan Armatrading and used to play her records all the time and even took me to see her a couple of times when I was really quite young. I didn’t really like her music back then because my mum was always playing it, but I’ve grown to appreciate it more.

Katy B

If you took away all pain, if everyone lived forever, everything would be bland, flat and boring; there would be no reason for art, music, newspapers, love because we would all be in a mono state of happiness.

Matt Haig

I love New York, it’s always been my home. It has everything – music, fashion, entertainment, impressive buildings, huge parks, street cafes. And it’s very international, with people from all over the world.

Sean Combs

I grew up listening to The Band. I love Lowell George. I love Little Feat, and I was listening to some Springsteen, some of the deep album cuts. I just like the looseness of that kind of music. It all feels like they did it in one take. They let whatever happened happen. If it felt good, they kept it.

Eric Church

I love what I do. I was given the most incredible gift that can be given to anyone. I could never imagine a world without music, and I feel grateful that I’ve been given the ability to share that.

Dionne Warwick

Since I loved underground music, I tried to carve a space for feminism within it. Those were my hopes.

Kathleen Hanna

I get to go make music, and I get paid to do it, and this is what people love me for. I couldn’t ask for anything greater, so how could I not go in the studio and make a million songs?

Trey Songz

I love pop music, but at the same time, I’m seeking to write whatever I’m organically inclined to.

Halsey

Mexican music runs through my veins. I loved it. Growing up, my father didn’t allow us to listen to English music at home. That’s all I heard. I had no choice.

Jenni Rivera

I really, really love music. I’m affected by it and uplifted by it, and made to laugh and cry, and almost fall in love with the person who has made me feel so brilliant and communicated so profoundly to me.

Siobhan Fahey

My health is wonderful. I work out. I’m working. Playing music. I have a beautiful wife, a nice home, a nice car, I got money in the bank. I got three beautiful dogs that love me. Like I said, I’m blessed. I survived.

Steven Adler

I’m hopefully touring with Colin Baker next year in Perfect Strangers. I have performed with Sylvia Simms in poetry and music evenings. I would love to do those for the rest of my career – they are so fun and witty.

Louise Jameson

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.

Sarah Brightman

It was very interesting in my world, because I grew up as a fan and I did not know that there was a thing called R&B, pop, country, classical – I just knew that I loved music.

Lionel Richie

I’d love to do my own music for sure. I’d love to have a band.

Selena Gomez

If you play music for the right reasons, the rest of the things will come. The right reason to play music is that you love it. That’s why I play music. I never imagined that I was going to be doing this, especially because I never thought of myself as an instrumentalist.

George Benson

I like fashion, but I love, love, love music and film; they are my two passions. I would love to pursue my acting and my love of music more than anything.

Cara Delevingne

I want to work on projects that I feel passionate about and do things that are fun and challenging. I would love to do a live musical. I’m not interested in doing the same thing over and over or the fame and exposure that comes with it. When people keep doing that, they just end up doing the same dumb stuff again and again.

Holly Madison

If someone wants to say ‘I love you’ in a straight play, they say it, and then it’s the other person’s turn to talk. But in a song, you can sing about it for another three minutes. The musical form has that unique opportunity to express at length what joy really feels like.

Marsha Norman

Yeah, it’s a lot harder to find a musical partner than a love partner.

Victoria Legrand

But what was my motivation was music, and the fact that I love to move around. I’m always moving around.

Suzanne Farrell

I love painting and music, of course. I don’t know nearly as much about them as I know about poetry. I’ve certainly been influenced by fiction. I was overwhelmed by War and Peace when I read it, and I didn’t read it until I was in my late 20s.

Kenneth Koch

I’ve always loved music, not necessarily just the Osmonds.

Kevin Richardson

I love the musicality of English. French sounds flat. In English, you can play with pitch.

Eva Green

It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical… I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.

Marion Cotillard

It’s so wide; that’s what I love most about my career. It’s been varied, and the music has been varied, because I find myself getting bored pretty easily. So for me, to work in the studio has been great. I didn’t go on the road; I just worked on a different project every day, a different kind of music, and that’s the challenge I love.

Harvey Mason, Jr.

I’m not trying to compete with any other revival soul acts. It’s just Leon Bridges, a kid from Fort Worth trying to be himself and give people hope. It’s great music to dance to and just love.

Leon Bridges

I just had lunch with Slash two days ago. He loves Axl. He holds no grudges towards him. Twenty years of great music wasn’t created because of some stupid grudge. That’s a shame.

Steven Adler

For the music business, social networking is brilliant. Just when you think it’s doom and gloom and you have to spend millions of pounds on marketing and this and that, you have this amazing thing now called fan power. The whole world is linked through a laptop. It’s amazing. And it’s free. I love it. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Simon Cowell

I did ‘Love Letter’ and ‘Write Me Back,’ and those were fun albums for me to do because they took me back to music I love.

R. Kelly

I can play the flute. Music was my favourite A-level, and I used to love composing my and stylising my voice to sound like 90’s singing sensation Tori Amos.

Erin O’Connor

Because I was a dancer when I was a kid, I have so much empathy for these young girls who are so drawn to something lovely in music and in movement, and yet they encounter a world full of judgment and criticism of 11-year-old artists and bodies.

Sharon Lawrence

My music is inspired by my life: the people in my life, the people I have relationships with, the people I love, the people that make me feel something.

Jillian Rose Banks

I still love playing music. It was all I ever wanted to do, and I got the chance to do it.

Paul Weller

A lot of the music I write is about love. Sometimes I won’t understand how I am feeling until I write a song about it.

Camila Cabello

I do listen to music. Movie scores, exclusively, because it’s all about mood and nonspecificity. I love the way modern movie scoring is all about nonspecificity. You know, if I shuffled the tracks from ‘Inception,’ I challenge you to tell me which is which.

Joss Whedon

I definitely love record stores. And worked in many over the years. Having said that, it’s not necessarily that I love vinyl per se. I mean, I’m happy to use CDs and MP3s: to me, it’s the music that’s top priority. I do have a good collection of vinyl, but I rarely actually pull it out.

Gary Calamar

I’ve been told the weirdest things: ‘Yeah, I love taking a bath to your music!’ or ‘I gave birth to my daughter while listening to your music.’

Norah Jones

I love art, and it plays a huge role in my life. It’s definitely one of my greatest joys, and I’m a bit fanatical about certain painters and poets and musicians and sculptors.

Jandy Nelson

I embrace country music because of love, a love of what I came from.

Dwight Yoakam

We’re proud to be lifetime musicians and a band that lives like a band and loves the music and gives our lives to it.

Zac Brown

In ’92 – ’93, I was at that age when I was looking for my identity and that’s when I found dance music and I really fell in love with it.

Armin van Buuren

When I’m with my wife, I know she’s a beautiful woman. I know that, and more than that, it’s what she is inside. She’s beautiful inside; she loves music like I do. That’s the thing that brought us together and probably keeps us together.

Ronnie Milsap

I love fantasy. I love horror. I love musicals. Whatever doesn’t really happen in life is what I’m interested in. As a way of commenting on everything that does happen in life, because ultimately the only thing I’m really interested in is people.

Joss Whedon

From the first moment that I can remember, I had identified myself as a bass player and it had everything to do with my father, who was a bass player. And he loved music, you know, as much as anybody I’ve ever seen. And that dynamic I just thought as somehow was a straight pass to me.

Edgar Meyer

I respect artists so much, and I absolutely love music as the ultimate art.

Christie Brinkley

You’re born with a certain love of something. Music was my first love, and that’s the world I work from. Growing up, I was surrounded by artists, so my upbringing supported this lifestyle.

Condola Rashad

I have no love for myself as a human being, but I have immense pride in the music I make.

Morrissey

I discovered after going to music festivals that I am a rock fan. I love the guitars, the phrasing, and the abandon of rock fans.

Beyonce Knowles

My love, growing up on the Prairies, was country music.

Randy Bachman

I had all the normal interests – I played basketball and I headed the school paper. But I also developed very early a great love for music and literature and the theater.

Carlisle Floyd

I love the pioneers like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, but when I write music, it comes out in my own way.

Leon Bridges

I love Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert – they write from the heart. But it’s hard to find a country music lover in L.A. None of my friends really listen to it, and they hate getting in the car with me because I just blast Taylor Swift.

Lucy Hale

The great thing about Nashville back in the day was that the old guys hung out where the young guys were. The established writers like Harlan Howard and Jack Clement gave us encouragement and passed the guitar, you know? Chet Atkins let me sit in on his sessions. Everybody was good to us, and everybody loved the music.

Kris Kristofferson

I loved music, and in my ninth year at MIT, I decided to buy a hi-fi set. I figured that all I needed to do was look at the specifications. So I bought what looked like the best one, turned it on, and turned it off in five minutes, the sound was so poor.

Amar Bose

I’d love to be a saxophonist. I don’t know why, but I pretend I’m the saxophonist when I listen to music. I have about as much chance playing the sax as I do learning how to fly.

Richard Price

I try not to shut any doors before I even get there. I like doing music. I like singing. I love all music. Music kind of goes hand in hand with acting anyway.

Jeremy Shada

My dad loved black singers. So listening to New Orleans music, eventually I wanted to play an instrument.

Bill Kreutzmann

I love classical music and often listen to symphonies or opera in the morning.

William Mapother

What I’d love to do is work with kids in the U.S. to raise their awareness and encourage them to be global citizens. We’re all connected these days; we can listen to the same music as kids all around the world and share our ideas.

Jason Mraz

Music’s another big love of mine.

Thomas Brodie-Sangster

I don’t love the whole Hollywood mentality, but I do love the weather and how motivated everyone is around here. It motivates me to make fun music. I’m an East Coaster – I’m from New Jersey, so I’ll probably feel like that forever.

Charlie Puth

I first came to Brazil in the Sixties. Then I started coming back every year since touring most of the country. I grew to love it, the people, the music. I thought this is where I belong. I’ve been living in Brazil for the past 23 years. I call it my stress-free country.

Dionne Warwick

I know that I’m here because of the grace of God. But I also know that I’ve been given this second chance for a specific reason, and that is to bring love to the world again through the voice of my music, and I’m so honored to be able to do it. I’m so blessed that God has chosen me to do that.

El DeBarge

Music is a lady that I still love because she gives me the air that I breathe. We need all sorts of nourishment. And music satisfies and nourishes the hunger within ourselves for connection and harmony.

Cat Stevens

I would love to continue working behind the scenes in music – to produce and manage up-and-coming musical talent would be a dream!

Connor Franta

The whole issue is that everyone would love to do theater, but it doesn’t pay enough, so to do music theater on TV, that’s the ultimate dream.

Taye Diggs

My dad put me with all the greatest people. It definitely helped me now, because I know so much more about music and composition. It’s cool. I love Pops. I’m super thankful for everything he’s done to help my career.

Ty Dolla Sign

I love the music, I love the times, so to me that was exciting personally just to play something that starts in 1986 with graduating high school, we’ve got a great soundtrack in the pilot.

Will Estes

I love being a part of the country-music community.

Taylor Swift

I love the ’70s. I think the ’70s had the best music and the best movies.

Michael Jai White

Even though I am signed to an American label, I want Australia to fall in love with my music because if it doesn’t work here, it won’t work anywhere.

Conrad Sewell

I’m an advocate of music in schools. It’s important to me that music is in as many schools as possible across this country and across the world. I think that it’s a lost art form because kids aren’t as exposed to it as maybe they used to be, or should be. I was exposed heavily to jazz and that’s why I love it.

Chrisette Michele

I pretty much spent my twenties as a musician and taking acting classes. I loved it. I was at UCLA getting As and Bs in English and creative writing, basically trying to stay out of the Army. All I really wanted to do was play music.

Robert David Hall

No matter what is happening in life or in the world – war, natural disaster, poor health, pain, the death of loved ones – if existence is filled with art, music and literature, life will be fulfilling, a joy.

Karen DeCrow

It’s VH1, it’s everywhere, and you know music is just the world right now. People love music.

Brandy Norwood

I’m completely absorbed by Peter Guralnick’s definitive, two-part biography of Elvis Presley: ‘Last Train To Memphis’ and ‘Careless Love.’ Meticulously researched, this is a compelling mix of history, myth-busting, and, of course, some timeless music.

Mark Billingham

We’re all music fans and we just love being in a band, and that’s why we do it.

Joel Madden

I always loved music, and I always wanted to make a film about it, but I could never do it because of the censorship that was around.

Bahman Ghobadi

I love making music, though. I love playing.

Pharrell Williams

Yes, I would loved to have just sustained myself through my art, but less than one in a billion musicians gets that life. So rather than being like, ‘I’m an exception!’, like a moron, I thought I’d get a real job.

Mary Lambert

I would love to go into musicals. I got a chance to sing in ‘Big Momma’s House,’ and that’s something I would love to do more. But only in Broadway or in the movies. I don’t think I would ever seek a career as a singer.

Jessica Lucas

I loved the music, but the excesses of rock n’ roll never really appealed to me at all. I couldn’t see the point of getting up in front of a lot of people when you weren’t in control of your wits.

Robert Palmer

People send me CDs all the time because I love music. It’s great. I listen to them in my dressing room or in my car.

Ted King

The musicians in the band, and myself as a performer, love the risks of the unpredictable and the feeling of jumping off cliffs musically.

Jenny Scheinman

I’m really a singer, so I love songs and I love singing. I like rap music, but I didn’t grow up freestyling.

Billy Idol

The work I’ve done through my Common Culture Music series has enabled me not only to share my joy of music at scale but also promote the artists I love.

Connor Franta

Ironically, being a coach on ‘The Voice’ and spending time with those kids, Xenia and Dia especially, I learned a lot about myself. It reminded me how lucky I am that this happened for me, and it kind of lit the spark inside me again for my love of music.

Blake Shelton

The first time I toured the U.K. was in the early ’90s with Billy Pilgrim, so I know how much the people there love music.

Kristian Bush

I love architecture almost as much as I love my musicals.

Cameron Mackintosh

If I was rich enough, I would love to launch my own record label. I would love to try and give all my musically talented friends a start in the industry.

Cara Delevingne

Sometimes I feel like music has made love to me.

R. Kelly

It’s a bit like school camp, shooting a film. Everyone’s on heat. It’s a strange energy. It’s full of adrenalin. I funnel my excess energy in funny little ways. I do a lot of dancing in my trailer. I love music.

Alice Englert

As for the symphonic activities… when I was a student at the Eastman School of Music, I became exposed to a lot more musical forms, elements, opportunities, and I fell in love with strings and their uses.

Chuck Mangione

I love music, and after my first experience with movies, I can’t wait to do more.

Rihanna

I want to continue to remain present and grateful each day that I get to be doing what I love. Making and performing music I believe in.

Rachel Platten

I have loved Elliott Carter’s music for many years.

Daniel Barenboim

I love playing in Germany. I love playing anywhere where people are going to enjoy the music. Germany is especially nice to play.

Taj Mahal

I love my music, so I want to produce, write, and serve my music. I’ve had to learn about EQ frequencies and programming and space and clutter and how to be a better piano or bass player – everything.

FKA twigs

Analog, electronic, whatever it happens to be, I simply love and adore literally every aspect of making music.

John Lydon

At the risk of sounding hopelessly romantic, love is the key element. I really love to play with different musicians who come from different cultural backgrounds.

Mahavishnu John McLaughlin

My father was a jazz tenor sax player. He played in a lot of big bands. So I had that sound around me all the time. The first record that really caught my ear was Clifford Brown’s ‘Brownie Eyes.’ I grew up listening to John Coltrane and Illinois Jacquet. This is where I come from… I love improvisational music.

Meshell Ndegeocello

Actually, I would love to make a music video. Maybe it would finally put to rest those persistent rumours that have followed me throughout my career – particularly when I was on camera performing – that I had died.

Perry Como

I think the future looks great for music, musicians, bass players, and all we love about music.

Billy Sheehan

I am a classical music lover – not necessarily the contemporary stuff, but the old stuff.

Eberhard Weber

I was never really a Mod. I thought I was more of a beatnik with the brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, etc. I loved the music Mods liked, and I loved the clothes, but I didn’t have any money to spend on them.

Ian McLagan

I loved the Brazilian music I played. But this is finally me. For the first time I think it’s really me.

Herbie Mann

For me, music is my joy. It’s my happiness. As long as this medicine, this chemo is in my body, I didn’t have my love, my joy.

Sharon Jones

There weren’t a lot of career opportunities in crazy-fast hardcore punk, so you didn’t have a lot of ambition, just the love and passion to play music with your friends.

Dave Grohl

The only love affair I have ever had was with music.

Maurice Ravel

I love Broadway. And, I listen to country music, which I think a lot of people find surprising.

Bryan Clay

The only thing I’m really, truly good at is music – I just love it.

Alessia Cara

I was at a school in England, a prep school, from the ages of 8 and 13. And every play they did was a musical. Parents love musicals. And I don’t sing. It was driving me crazy. ‘We’re doing ‘Macbeth.’ ‘Yes!’ ‘The musical!’ And I was always in the chorus, because of course, in all the main parts, you had to be able to sing.

Charlie Cox

I’d love to give my music to someone who really likes to wow the crowd. I feel like half the time I just want to hide in the dressing room!

Nellie McKay

My Dad died during the flu epidemic in 1918 when I was 4 years old. He left a lot of classical recordings behind that I began listening to at an early age, so he must have been a music lover.

Tom Glazer

I love music and I love acting. I always keep that in the forefront, not all the other distractions around me.

Keke Palmer

I do love brash pop music. It’s fun.

Romy Madley Croft

I adore watching movies; movie marathons are my favorite pastime. I can watch up to five movies back to back. I also love music and like reading whenever I get the time.

Priyanka Chopra

Art is basically communication, and I think everyone who’s a music lover has had that experience where a record or a recording has kept you company when no one else is around. And I think that is what I’m hoping that people get out of my music.

Conor Oberst

I love going on tour and playing music for people.

Moby

Music has always been a part of me and art in general. I love visual art as well.

Marketa Irglova

I am in love with old school funk and soul music. That’s what I grew up listening to, and I want to bring that style back with my music. I love artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and more!

Raini Rodriguez

I’ve been playing music since I was 12. I love performing live.

Jonathan Jackson

My husband, Gabriele, is a musician, and I love music, so you can bet it’s a really important part of our home entertaining repertoire, even if it means Gabriele making a really good playlist for a dinner party.

Debi Mazar

With L.A. it’s like, yeah, there’s Death Row and whatever. But I always wanted to know what those artists were sampling. It’s how I fell in love with music.

Ty Dolla Sign

When I hear that young people have come to the theater for the first time to listen to opera, I’m very happy. Because it’s the same thing that happened to me as a child. When I first heard the tenor voice, I immediately fell in love with this kind of music.

Andrea Bocelli

I got the regular call, that they were doing a Broadway musical of Hairspray, and would I come and audition. I was familiar with the movie, because at the time it came out my lover wrote for Premiere magazine, and we had to see everything.

Harvey Fierstein

Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do – can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.

Barbara Sher

‘Free the Gang,’ that’s my favorite song because it’s so real. All my music is real, it’s authentic, but it’s something about that song that I love.

Shy Glizzy

I felt like when I got with Kanye, and we discussed me being on G.O.O.D. Music, he just really took me to a place in regards to music that I love and music that I had made previously. We had a clear understanding of what I wanted to make, and he just seemed like he was an advocate for hardcore, uncompromising hip-hop.

Pusha T

Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.

Bernie Siegel

I do love the music aspect of the Internet. The Internet made me.

King Krule

I loved music – listening and playing – but of course I could not imagine I would be a professional musician. It really happened step by step.

Rokia Traore

I have really diverse tastes, which can be problematic sometimes, but it’s good because it means I’m always listening to as much music as possible. I love listening to music, whatever genre it is.

Richard Fleeshman

I made numerous attempts to find a way to do it all, to be a creative singer, songwriter, producer, and to be the mother, daughter, sister, lover, wife. And the thing about music is, with me, that she’s a harsh mistress. She does not come to me in the midst of stress.

Anita Baker

All I tell artists is, ‘Do what you love. Never let anybody talk you into changing what your musical idea is just to try to get a hit, because you’re chasing your tail that way. It’s not going to happen, and if you’re successful, you have to do it the rest of your life. Stay true to it and do it for the sake of the art.’

Gloria Estefan

My parents loved classical music. And my father adored Mozart. But for some reason, I always had a reaction against it.

Simon McBurney

I love scoring. Putting music to picture is a rewarding challenge and one that relies on interpretation of emotion – as in, what is the pivotal feeling in a scene and which character’s point of view is driving it at any given moment?

Liz Phair

My debut album, ‘Forget the World,’ is all about not listening to the negativity around you and to continue to do what you love, no matter what people think. I love what I do. Dance music is my passion, my life. There is no greater feeling than being one with my fans, partying to the music we love.

Afrojack

I love musical theatre because I love doing a live performance eight times a week.

Gareth Gates

Music was our wife, and we loved her. And we stayed with her, and we clothed her, and we put diamond rings on her hands.

Lionel Hampton

I love Barbra Streisand and Sade who’ve both had careers in soul and I want my music to have that timeless quality that isn’t necessarily now.

Jessie Ware

I do covers for CDs and LPs of music that I like, reissues of old-time music, and then I’m inspired to make some kind of drawing based on this love of the music. I don’t do album covers or CD covers for groups or musicians I don’t like or have no interest in.

Robert Crumb

If I went crazy and tried to make pop music, my band wouldn’t record it! I love them too much to do that.

Leon Bridges

When I think about atheist friends, including my father, they seem to me like people who have no ear for music, or who have never been in love.

A. N. Wilson

This person loves tangerines, This person loves raspberries – and my son won’t even look at berries. Isn’t that amazing? And so I have to apply that to music; otherwise, I would always hide in a hole because of all the people that don’t like Coldplay.

Chris Martin

That’s my contribution – running a sound, healthy company that serves millions of customers well and employs hundreds of thousands of people. What else am I going to do? I’m not an artist. I’m not a writer. I’m not a musician. I’d love to be a tennis player or musician. I’m not.

Jamie Dimon

I can’t even tell anyone how it feels when I’m acting, I don’t mean to say that I don’t have to try. But there’s something in my heart that explodes, and I feel like I understand. When I’m acting, I feel like so in control and so centered. This is something that I solely get from acting and music. It’s like love itself.

Keke Palmer

Actually, I’ve had very little classical training, although I love listening to classical music very much.

Benny Green

There are only two things: love, all sorts of love, with pretty girls, and the music of New Orleans or Duke Ellington. Everything else ought to go, because everything else is ugly.

Boris Vian

Through my work, I’ve learned that if I love it, whether it’s music, acting or any type of entertainment, I can overcome any of the obstacles that come my way.

Trevor Jackson

I believed in fictional characters as if they were a part of real life. Poetry was important, too. My parents had memorized poems from their days attending school in New York City and loved reciting them. We all enjoyed listening to these poems and to music as well.

Alice McDermott

I’m an island boy, so I love my reggae and soca music.

Dule Hill

I love the Italian culture – it’s a beautiful culture. I love the language, the Italian people, their music, their attitudes… I just love it! Sometimes I think I’m an Italian trapped in a Spanish woman’s body.

Penelope Cruz

I’d love to do a film like ‘Chicago.’ Something musical because I’ve obviously come from that background.

Leona Lewis

I love the power of words – no music or special effects – and I want to demonstrate that power.

Chuck Palahniuk

Music has an intrinsic value that touches Americans – they love their music, and want more.

Hilary Rosen

I always loved music. You know, my parents said I started singing when I was 4, in the car.

Bob Seger

I love what I do. I made my first record in ’57. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of making records and writing songs and singing and being in the music business.

Ray Stevens

Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.

Jimmy Carter

My father loved music. He loved Motown and R&B, and my mother loved Journey and Fleetwood Mac, so they were always listening to it and playing it.

Andra Day

I love plays that have musical moments. I’m not a big fan of musicals per se, but I love straight plays that have musical edges to them. I don’t know if I will ever be able to structure a musical, but ‘Finer Noble Gases’ is as close as I’ve gotten.

Adam Rapp

I love country music. I don’t ever feel restricted by the genre.

Martina McBride

There’s a new hit rock group or singer every five minutes, but with country music, you have one hit and those people love you forever.

Kenny Rogers

Jazz in the 1920s and ’30s was dance music, teenage music for parties, for being wild and young. There’s this punk feeling I really love. It was something so radical and different and new and not codified. People didn’t have a definition of what they were doing.

Cecile McLorin Salvant

I love Florida Georgia Line. I love ‘Round Here.’ So if a fan wants to listen to that, and if a fan that wasn’t listening to country music before is listening to ‘Cruise’ on Pandora, and after that a song by George Jones comes on, they may have never heard George Jones before. I think it’s a good thing for the genre.

Scotty McCreery

I really love rap music. I grew up in the ’80s and ’90s with Public Enemy, N.W.A., LL Cool J – I’m a hip-hop encyclopedia. But I got kind of frustrated with the chauvinistic side of rap music, the one that makes it hard to write songs about love and relationships.

Mayer Hawthorne

I got my love of jazz from my stepfather, who was a jazz musician.

Flea

I love Nashville. It’s such a great town, and I’m a huge country music fan. That’s what I listen to on the radio in the car.

Joanna Garcia

When I was four, we had to choose a musical instrument to play at school, and I chose the cello. I played until I was 18, and although I found it nerve-racking to play solo, I loved playing in an orchestra. When I left school I didn’t carry on with it, which I regret.

Emilia Fox

I love music so much I love what I do. I work very hard at being the best musician I can be because I love it.

Diana Krall

I love what I do and the music I make and the bands I’ve done, especially Fall Out Boy. I also love what I love, and I don’t care if other people like it.

Joe Trohman

When we were shooting in Shreveport, me and a couple of friends went down to Lafayette, because they had a big Zydeco music festival down there. We spent two days dancing to Zydeco music, eating fried alligator… It was one of the craziest festivals I’ve ever been to in my life, but I loved it.

Alexander Skarsgard

We don’t live in a jazz world, unfortunately. I think if I had lived in a jazz world, I would have done OK. I’m not sure I would have done great. I’m a lover of jazz music, so I would have been happy, don’t get me wrong. I go to jazz concerts like the biggest jazz fan in world. The drag is that I don’t play jazz for a living.

George Benson

One of the things that was a blessing for me is my parents were music lovers. Neither of my parents played an instrument, but they were avid record buyers. And I grew up at every age listening to all kinds of music.

Gustavo Santaolalla

I love all music.

Aretha Franklin

When I started out, I wanted to be Billy Joel. The plan was to be a singer-songwriter of that ilk, and, then, I got waylaid – that’s probably an unfair way to say it – from being a rock star by the musical theatre stuff, which I love doing.

Jason Robert Brown

I’m primarily thought of as a rocker, and certainly ‘Frankenstein’ had a very dramatic power rock image. It was almost a precursor of heavy metal and fusion. But I also love jazz and classical and if there’s one common thread that runs through all my music, it is blues.

Edgar Winter

The greatest music is made for love, not for money.

Greg Lake

It is, we wanted to make a record that reflected our love of Hard-Rock music and it is sort of Metal though we don’t really describe ourselves as Metal.

Adam Rich

I did a lot of musical theatre when I was younger, so I would love to go back and do that again someday.

Hayley McFarland

I love Frank Ocean. I think he’s so talented and his music is so great. So, I would love to do one of his songs like ‘Bad Religion’ or ‘Pink Matter.’

Jacob Artist

Engineering was the safe and sensible choice, but music was what I loved and wanted to do.

Stormzy

I went to my dad when I was 17 and said, ‘I want to be a country music star.’ Which every dad loves to hear. And he said, ‘I want you to go to college.’ So we had a discussion. And I’m pretty stubborn. I’m a lot like him. And he said, ‘If you go to college and graduate, I’ll pay your first six months of rent in Nashville.’ So he bribed me.

Eric Church

I play guitar, the ukulele and the piano. I grew up on a mountain in Tennessee, and we had ‘The Mountain Opry,’ where anyone could just get up on stage to perform. It was just about the soul and heart of music. My upbringing was less about being great and more about just doing what you love. It was always for joy.

Rachel Boston

I love gentle, gorgeous classical music such as Mozart.

Felicity Kendal

Paul Hicks is the only guy The Beatles will allow to arrange, mix and engineer their music, so he did the Cirque du Soleil ‘Love’ show.

Richard LaGravenese

I’ve been all over the world. I love New York, I love Paris, San Francisco, so many places. But there’s no place like New Orleans. It’s got the best food. It’s got the best music. It’s got the best people. It’s got the most fun stuff to do.

Harry Connick, Jr.

I would still love to do more Handel. I think Handel was a fantastic composer. I did lots of Vivaldi, but it’s also important to do the music of Handel, one of the greatest composers of the 18th century.

Cecilia Bartoli

Find something you really love doing and mix it with something you really care about. That’s why I’ve had such longevity as an artist. I really, really care about ending violence against women, and I really, really love playing music. It’s super enjoyable!

Kathleen Hanna

Having good health, being able to breathe and be happy, that’s one of the most beautiful gifts. On top of that, I have the gift to play music and make people happy through that. I’m just telling you from my heart, I’m so in love with life.

Roy Ayers

I love music so much; I’ve always played.

Creed Bratton

I really love Anglo music, and the language as well. Like, my kids, they – born here, Miami. So I just – a little bit more familiar with the language.

Juanes

The closest I’ve come to knowing myself is in losing myself. That’s why I loved football before I loved music. I could lose myself in it.

Kris Kristofferson

I love everything from country to alternative to Blink-182 and ’90s music to Dave Matthews.

Spencer Boldman

My students frequently ask what their next project should be. My advice: immerse yourself in the music you love and you will find what you want to do; you will discover your next project.

Lukas Foss

I love Christmas. I really do love Christmas. I love being with my family and I love snow. I love the music and the lights and all of it.

Christina Applegate

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 2]

About myself I have no great illusions. I know what I am. I know what I’m good at. I know what I ain’t. I’m always hoping to surprise myself. But I do have a love of music and I do love to communicate it, and that’s the best I can do, really. And I can raise a good family, too.

Keith Richards

I’m a weird dichotomy of nerd, sports fan, and musical theater, so I’d love to do a superhero musical on Broadway. But all the good superheroes are claimed.

Taran Killam

I just fell in love with his music. I thought Yanni was Japanese. I didn’t have any idea what a Yanni was. I just thought I was in love with a Japanese man who wrote beautiful music.

Linda Evans

I’ve always loved New Orleans music. I always loved it when the Neville Brothers opened up for the Grateful Dead and the Dirty Dozen and all that.

Bill Kreutzmann

It is not that I don’t like contemporary country music because I do. I love it. I have recorded a lot and have had great success recording records that have not been very traditional country records.

Vince Gill

From an early age, I was infatuated with music. I always loved it and was always dancing or playing something.

Tyler Farr

People love gospel music. It’s calming. It’s soothing. It gets right to the point of whatever you’re dealing with.

Yolanda Adams

My advice to young people wanting to make music and to be in this industry is to really spend your time making music. Make so much music you have no friends. Make music. Figure out what it is you love, and… because if you’re making cool art, then everything else will fall into line.

Lorde

While I love musical theater, it wasn’t the right fit for me. It’s so competitive, and I was at such a disadvantage, having started performing when I was 17.

Jack Falahee

The biggest compliments I’ve heard about ‘That Metal Show’ are the ones from people that say that they don’t even listen to this kind of music, but, ‘We love watching the show.’

Eddie Trunk

I’m actually the son of Mary Guibert. My mother was born in the Panama Canal zone and came to America when she was five with my grandmother and grandfather, and that was the family I knew. Everybody sang; everybody had songs all the time, and they loved music.

Jeff Buckley

I love a lot of things, and I’m pretty much obsessive about most things I do, whether it be gardening, or architecture, or music. I’d be an obsessive hairdresser.

Gates McFadden

I think my love of music comes from my dad. I was born with an ear for music, like him, and started with the piano when I was 4 but fell in love with the drums. My dad always has music playing.

Blake Michael

I love classical music and have been playing violin since I was seven. Music helps me to express feelings in a way words often cannot.

Jane Chen

I’d like to actually work with a lot of other people, and whether it’s someone who is completely unknown who I love and think is a talent, maybe I’ll work with them, or, like, maybe I’ll work with some of the biggest pop stars and write music for them.

Flume

I get satisfaction out of making a meal for people that I love and having them enjoy it. But there’s not really anything in my life that I do that’s just for me that feeds my soul like music does.

Trisha Yearwood

Music is a talent given to me by God. A medium and a platform and a way to spread a message of righteousness… a message of love, a message of unity.

Stephen Marley

Music is always there, but if you’re asking me my first love, it’s film.

O’Shea Jackson, Jr.

Elvis Presley’s music never meant anything to me. Mambo was the music I loved – it spoke to me.

Arne Glimcher

I’ve never been passionate about just music, I’ve never seen myself going into music in that sense. My love for music has always been connected to the stories told through music, which is why I was drawn to theater and why I think ‘Glee’ is so powerful.

Grant Gustin

I have never denied my background or my culture. I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candy I grew up with.

Salma Hayek

I’ve always been interested in music. In high school, I did a lot of musical theater, and I loved it.

Rosanna Pansino

I’m able to provide for my family and the people that I love with things that I never used to be able to. I’m getting to make music and work with amazing people. I just feel really lucky.

Rebecca Ferguson

I like Sam Smith and Taylor Swift. I love pop music, but I also like Sam Smith’s slow songs. That would be more to dance to. I think dancers like different genres of music, compared to just a regular person.

Maddie Ziegler

I’m very much into the Gypsy Kings. It’s rumba and very festive, very passionate music, rhythmic guitar, passionate singing about love from happy people.

Sofia Milos

I like writing different types of music. I like writing Christian music. I like collaborating with Christian artists. We have a Christian following. I love writing kids’ music.

John Tesh

I would really love to do a musical, I don’t know in what capacity but something funny.

Billie Piper

Willow and I definitely talked about doing a collaboration. She really loves rock music, so she wants to come on and get crazy with me on a track. Which I would love, because she has a fantastic voice.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Music – opera particularly – is a process which is endurable or successful only if it is achieved by people who love to collaborate.

Sarah Caldwell

It’s the coolest part about writing music. I don’t know how other people work, but so much is derived from some amalgamation of all these different songs that I love. That’s why they jump all over the place.

Nate Ruess

I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.

James Taylor

Music is passionate. It’s love for me.

Brandy Norwood

I love the fact that people can relate to what I’m saying, even if it’s not for the same subject I was writing about. That is the power of real music and real expression.

Corey Taylor

I loved the last album, and it was one hundred percent me. But this is like me two years later, who understands a little bit more about music and understands a little bit more about making an album. I wrote a lot more.

Jennifer Lopez

I grew up in a community of theatre, and I always loved musicals. From a young age, the first present I ever wanted was a video camera. For me it was a great outlet to be creative.

Christopher Egan

The best thing about being a DJ is making people happy. There is nothing like seeing people get up from a table to dance or the expression on their face when they hear a song they love. I also love to educate people on music they have never heard.

Chelsea Leyland

When the band begins to get a name for themselves, and the writers get assigned to bands, they’ll hit somebody who just doesn’t like that kind of music, or they love hip hop but hate guitar rock.

Kim Deal

My mom is a very religious woman. So when I began recording music, I was afraid she wouldn’t accept it. But when I played her a song, she loved it.

Leon Bridges

For me, great music doesn’t just have to fall into one category or one genre and I love appreciating all kinds of music.

Taylor Swift

When I was a kid, I used to listen to my Emerson radio late at night under the covers. I started by listening to jazz in the late 1940s and then vocal harmony groups like the Four Freshmen, the Modernaires and the Hi-Lo’s. I loved Stan Kenton’s big band – with those dark chords and musicians who could swing cool with individual sounds.

Frankie Valli

We love all kinds of music: We love pop music, we love rock music, we love R & B and country, and we just pull from all our influences. So I don’t really take offense as long as people are coming out to the shows and buying the records and becoming fans of the music. At the end of the day, the music is what’s gonna speak to you.

Charles Kelley

I love music because you can create a world through your records. I have total control over what I do and what I wear. It’s like my own world out of my imagination rather than someone giving me lines.

Jane Badler

When I was 21 or 22, I realized I was never going to be something else – I had to be a musician. I can’t commit to anything unless I love it.

Chet Faker

When I was really little, I wanted to be a taxi driver or a bus driver; I loved the fact that I could play my own music when I wanted. But I can’t imagine actually doing that now; I think I’d get bored.

Eliza Doolittle

I have always been infatuated with country music. Country music tells stories, and I’ve always loved to tell stories. I said that when I establish myself as an artist that can do pretty much anything I want to do in music, I’m going to make a country album.

R. Kelly

I love music, that it changes so much, but I also want to keep a bit of the country roots to make it country. I don’t want to go too far away from it, or I would do pop music.

Jana Kramer

I love music. I love going out dancing.

Carson Kressley

My parents believed in exposing each of their children to an abundance of varied activities in the hope they would find something they loved. They each had found a passion – Dad with his music and Mom with her horses – so it was natural for them to encourage experimentation.

Dorothy Hamill

I can’t help other people’s frustrations. I don’t owe people anything. If people would like to come to my concerts, I’d love them to come. And if they like the music that I make, I love that, too. But I do not make music for other people. I make it to please myself.

David Gilmour

I’m just excited that I get to put out the music I love versus music just for the sake of it.

Estelle

I love my own music.

Alicia Keys

For me, one I love the 80’s, I love 80’s music, I’m sort of a baby of the 80’s, I grew up in the 80s.

Will Estes

I read whenever possible, and I buy books all the time, sometimes online, but mostly from bookshops. I love literature. If you want to understand art, it’s important to understand what is also happening in literature, in music, in science, in architecture.

Hans-Ulrich Obrist

I’ve struggled with an identity sometimes; I don’t know what exactly I am. I love so many types of music, and I don’t want to commit to going down one road.

Brandon Flowers

Music is very powerful and can make you feel whatever it is. If you listen to gospel, you’re going to feel thankful, and you’re going to want to call up people that you hate and tell them that you love them. When you listen to sexual music, it gets you in the mood.

R. Kelly

People who love R&B will love my music, people who love rock will love my music. It’s soulful, it’s pop. It’s a sound that relates to everyone.

Jessica White

I like hearing the sort of harmonies people get into in different parts of the world. I love music that has a sense of allure to it, and exotic tunes. That’s what I’m drawn to.

Bria Skonberg

Country music is important to me, and I love it, but it’s not my whole life.

George Strait

I became a musician because I love music, and that is what has sustained me; it’s not because I thought it was a great way to make a living. Music saved my life.

David Sanborn

Italians have always had a high savings rate. They love putting their money into their own government bonds – even more than in houses, stocks and gold. The higher rates climb, the happier they are to invest. So if austerity plans drive rates up, it’s music to Italian ears.

Kenneth Fisher

Every time I tried writing my own songs, they would come out very country. I couldn’t fight it, and the more I listened to country music, the more I loved it, and it just became very natural.

Hayley Orrantia

I love pop music. It’s not easy to write a good pop song.

John Lydon

What love is to man, music is to the arts and to mankind. Music is love itself – it is the purest, most ethereal language of passion, showing in a thousand ways all possible changes of color and feeling; and though true in only a single instance, it yet can be understood by thousands of men – who all feel differently.

Carl Maria von Weber

This isn’t about the money. This is just for me. I love music.

Justin Timberlake

I have visualizations where I’m living in a really cool place – probably outside of town – with a really dope studio where I can record music or film things. Just have my own mini production house. That’s really the thing I’d love to end up with the most and only do gigs when I needed to and also amass a little bit of a crew around me.

Reggie Watts

I’d love to be on a TV series someday, but I believe you get the jobs that you’re meant to get. If the job that I’m meant to get is another musical or another play or film or TV show, I’m just happy to keep working.

Stark Sands

The English may not like music, but they absolutely love the noise it makes.

Thomas Beecham

‘Mixtape’ sounds retro! I used to make lots of mixed tapes. It was one of those ’90s things – every girl gave them to her best friend. I remember exchanging a few with a boy on a bus when I was 14. I thought he hated me, but in hindsight, maybe he was in love with me, because he gave me the best music.

Hannah Ware

I love writing songs. I love doing my radio show and talking to the fans and listening to what they have to say, but there’s a certain responsibility that comes along with being given the gift of music. I take that seriously, but at the same time I try to use it to do something that makes a difference in a positive way.

Randy Owen

I love sad songs. They say so much. I love country music but even the happy songs sound really sad.

Beth Ditto

I’m not a person who writes really abstract things with oblique references. I look at abstraction like I look at condiments. Give me some Tabasco sauce, some ketchup, some mayonnaise. I love all of that. Put it on a trumpet. I’ve just got to have the ketchup and Tabasco sauce. That’s my attitude about musical philosophy.

Wynton Marsalis

I was drawn to love songs, but I was just drawn to great music – no matter if it’s hip-hop, pop, R&B or whether it’s rock n’ roll or country. It could be a Garth Brooks song, and if it’s a smash, then I’ll love the different wordplay and different melodies. That’s what I’m a fan of – great music.

Nayvadius Cash

I was always that girl who loved music and thought of music as an escape route.

Rita Ora

In hip-hop, what you have is you have a lot of formulaic-type bands or rappers that come up. They saw something on the radio, and they want to mimic that formula. And that’s just boring. I don’t wanna record something just to make money; I want to record something to enjoy it and have fun because I’m a music lover.

Sir Mix-a-Lot

Confidence, as a teenager? Because I knew what I loved. I loved to read; I loved to listen to music; and I loved cats. Those three things. So, even though I was an only kid, I could be happy because I knew what I loved.

Haruki Murakami

I’ve always loved musical theater. It’s a bit of a family tradition.

Trey Anastasio

Music allows the great opportunity to play with people who turned you on and you love.

Herbie Mann

If people like your music, you can’t guarantee they’re going to love you.

Annie Lennox

I’m always writing. And, I mean, I always counsel people when they call me a musician: I really do not have the skills of a musician. I really don’t think like a musician, though I love music and I perform and sing.

Patti Smith

Nas always been my favorite rapper, but 50 Cent, he changed my way of thinking about music ’cause he was so detailed in his music, I knew that wasn’t lying. I never felt Tupac that way; I never felt Biggie that way. I love Nas music, but I never felt and believed like, ‘This is for real.’ ‘Cause I grew up that gangsta lifestyle.

Schoolboy Q

I love to do comedy, but music is really my heart.

Paul Shaffer

I’d always wanted to work in the studio and experiment with sounds. Things that I’m really influenced by and that I love are like The Beatles and Radiohead, and all those records by bands whose music is really involved.

Regina Spektor

I write music people enjoy playing and listening to, and I have a group that loves playing the music.

Chuck Mangione

I’ve got to hear the rhythm of the sentences; I want the music of the prose. I want to see ordinary things transformed not by the circumstances in which I see them but by the language with which they’re described. That’s what I love when I read.

Alice McDermott

I always loved rock guitar. I just never put it together that that’s what I’d end up doing. I had no aspirations to be a musician, but I picked up a guitar for two seconds and haven’t put it down since.

Slash

The common denominator is a love of music.

Natasha Bedingfield

It was my love for the guitar that first got me into music and singing.

Ed Sheeran

After my touring life, I’d love to be more involved with charity. It gives me a lot of fulfillment, you know? I would love to get people who are into my music more active in charity work. In the future, when I have more time, I’d love to do spend more time on that.

Tiesto

I love X-Games music.

Jon Anderson

The moment artists can just do what they love to do then music will go right back to where it used to be. I mean back in the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s, that’s what it was.

Akon

Snatam Kaur is a yogini, and I find her music deeply spiritual. I feel more love and I feel more peace when I listen to her music.

John Mackey

Country music tells stories, and I’ve always loved to tell stories.

R. Kelly

People get to a certain age and success that they stop being curious. I’m still curious because I haven’t really had that success. I’ve never done a record to catch whatever the latest sound is. It’s my love of music, eclectic-ness, and the music that I heard my entire life that seeps in. That’s what you’re hearing.

Jill Sobule

After ‘Mosaic,’ I think a lot of people didn’t know what my next record was going to be. And that’s what I love. I just love doing music because I’m not going to follow the patterns and formulas of Music Row.

Ricky Skaggs

Music is my first love and the thing that I feel extremely connected to. I feel like I still have a long way to go within that in terms of being able to perform and write songs. But, yeah, I really hope ‘The Possession’ opens doors for me to do more acting, because I really enjoyed it.

Matisyahu

I always enjoyed participating in artistic endeavors, and I remember in high school participating in chorus, drama and singing madrigals, mainly because they were an easy A. I loved being in plays and musicals too, but you didn’t really get credit for those.

Roger Bart

Mainly what I learned from Buddy… was an attitude. He loved music, and he taught me that it shouldn’t have any barriers to it.

Waylon Jennings

I think it took me a while to convince Nashville that what I do is genuine and my heart’s in the right place, and I love country music.

Keith Urban

My pure love is playing music.

Jamie Cullum

If I could be a musician, I’d do it. I love singing.

Rebecca Hall

If you can show something as complicated as two people falling in love with just music and camera angles, well, just think about what you can do with football.

Steve Sabol

To re-embrace what I once loved about music has been a warming process for me, because it’s a good, earned feeling now.

Billy Corgan

I love being on the beach – it’s my favourite place. I can chill out, read, listen to music, play with my daughter.

Geri Halliwell

My success set me up for life, and it meant that I could retire from the music industry at 27 to spend time with my newborn daughter and my wife. My time away from the spotlight allowed me to rediscover my love for music, and I’m doing it for me now and no one else.

Rick Astley

When I’m doing music and I’m on the road, I love it. But once I’m home, it’s very difficult to go back out on the road.

Noel Gallagher

I love fashion. I like dressing how I feel, and my music shows how I feel – they go hand in hand. My performance style is pretty much the same as my everyday style.

Banks

Women do not like CDs of live music. We only like the original recordings. If a song sounds different from the version we fell in love with, then it’s awful.

Leslie Mann

One thing I love about Christmas music is that it has a tradition of warmth.

Zooey Deschanel

‘The Secret Garden’ was the first musical that I fell in love with when I was a kid. My mom took me to see it, and it was the first one that I owned the soundtrack to and listened to over and over again.

Allison Tolman

Don’t get me wrong: there are aspects of buying music online that I love. Instantly being able to hear a song the moment it crosses your mind? Where’s the downside? However, I do feel for those too young to remember the thrill of going record shopping.

John Niven

I enjoy listening to contemporary rock on the college stations while I’m taking long walks, love gospel and soul music, am fascinated by hip-hop and rap as the new kind of urban ‘beat’ poetry and, come to think of it, find something interesting about just any kind of music.

Oscar Hijuelos

There’s music to dance to and make love to, music to cry to. I’m starting from scratch, coming fresh. But my sound still embodies the same soulful, intricate harmonies.

El DeBarge

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.

Teddy Thompson

I love Slipknot. But then I like Jao Gilberto… It’s the spirit that comes through in music.

Robert Palmer

Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good plays, good company, good conversation – what are they? They are the happiest people in the world.

William Lyon Phelps

I love rock and opera, and I love musical theater, and I don’t want to lose any of that.

Lauren Worsham

I was really, really, really enthusiastic as a kid. I was up for anything. I was hugely into music and theatre. I was a big musical theatre kid; I loved reading.

Amanda Marshall

I would love to be in musical theater and be on Broadway. If someone were to offer me a position to do something like that, I wouldnt pass it down. Im a huge fan of musicals and I really want to do that.

Michelle Branch

In a way I spend my entire life stealing from everything – from the past, from cities I love, from where I grew up – grabbing things, taking not only from architecture but from Italy, art, writing, poetry, music.

Renzo Piano

If the king loves music, there is little wrong in the land.

Mencius

I think my style is quite grungy and punky. I love the ’90s and the music from that time, and I love punk music. I’m also a fan of mixing vintage with some high fashion, which links back to my musical taste because I tend to mix old music with newer songs.

Chelsea Leyland

A love of classical music is only partially a natural response to hearing the works performed, it also must come about by a decision to listen carefully, to pay close attention, a decision inevitably motivated by the cultural and social prestige of the art.

Charles Rosen

I don’t think I’d ever make an album of just covers because I love writing my own music.

Taylor Swift

Acting was always something I loved doing, but I didn’t know that I would pursue it professionally. I really loved doing plays at school, but I was in a rock band and ended up going to a school for music.

Jesse Johnson

No matter what I do, I can’t help but feel that I’m under a microscope. Some of it is completely silly, and some of it is meant to be hurtful. For example, a website accumulated all of my music videos to point out perceived Illuminati images. I loved that one. Of course, it was all ridiculous but funny.

Steve Aoki

I love the Country Music Hall of Fame. I don’t think it’s just a hall of fame and it’s not just a museum. It’s a schoolhouse. It’s a place where people from all across the world can come and learn about this great genre that we’re making a living out of.

Josh Turner

One thing I really love in my single, ‘Just Can’t Let You Go,’ is the beatboxing; I think it’s really cool. Also, in my music, I’m not afraid to say what I want to say. I also think it’s relatable for other girls out there.

Manika

I love that sense of change that you’d get in pop music every three minutes, every four minutes.

Danny Boyle

I love classic rock, rock and roll, that’s the top notch. I love soul – bluesy music as well.

Haley Reinhart

Music was something I was encouraged to do, which I appeared to be quite good at, but it was never a passion. Writing was always my first love.

Allan Guthrie

Musical theatre is my first love.

Laura Benanti

What I loved about country music when I was a kid was the Grand Ole Opry, was ‘Hee Haw,’ was 360 degrees of entertainment.

Laura Bell Bundy

I love Sam Mendes, but I went to see ‘Spectre’ with my kid, and the opening scene of the Dia de Muertos party, with this kind of tropical music, in downtown Mexico City, with all these people dancing like it’s the Rio de Janeiro carnival… I had to laugh.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I would love to do a musical. I would love that. I would have to find the right book, the right story, but some day I’m going to make one. I would really like to go off and direct a musical. That’s what I would really like to do when I grow up.

Steven Spielberg

I love to leave the interpretation of my music up to the listener. It’s fun to see what they’ll say it is.

Erykah Badu

Growing up, I always wanted to be in punk bands, so I’m really enjoying the harder, heavier element. It’s always been my dream to have people moshing at my gig, kind of that really feral element of the music coming out more. I love crowd-surfing.

Florence Welch

I’m making music that I love and I want to hear. At the same time, things like making money, making crazy money – you gotta find ways to reach to everybody but uplift everybody.

Tyga

I grew up in musical theatre and love to perform on stage.

A. J. McLean

A common sense of humour and a love of music is really important, as I love all types of music. You name me any genre, and I can give you a list of artists I adore.

Adam Rodriguez

I have a whole iPod full of exceptionally bad music, truly awful stuff including a disproportionate number of one hit wonders from the early ’80s and lots of hair bands. I find it utterly impossible to love a song until I know every single word, so listening to live music or new bands is pretty much out.

Lauren Weisberger

I’m an American songbook guy, though I’ve got eclectic tastes. I really love the American songbook. I’ve taken up the ukulele, and so you can play ‘Five Foot Two’ and Hawaiian music, but you can also do some of the great tunes, like ‘You Go to My Head,’ ‘I Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out to Dry,’ ‘Taking a Chance on Love.’

Tony Danza

If I wasn’t acting, I’d try and be a footballer. I wouldn’t be a musician because I can’t write my own music. Realistically, I’d probably do something with dogs, like a vet or something. I love animals.

Jamie Blackley

My father loved poetry and music. But deep in himself he thought teaching the finest thing a person could do.

George Steiner

My two great loves are music and horses.

Betty Buckley

One of the things I love about jazz music is that intent is first and execution is second. In classical music, execution is first and intent is second, meaning that you must first learn a piece before you can truly add your interpretation to it.

Irvin Mayfield

I like challenging people. I love pop music that can just throw you off.

Kimbra

I love music.

Anwar Robinson

I’ve always loved the blues, ever since I was a kid. It has a depth to it that a lot of contemporary music doesn’t have. It has pain and suffering in it, but funny stories, too. And it is built on storytelling, which is something I really love.

Nickolas Ashford

Music I can discover a part of myself that I haven’t been able to for a long time, and acting is the opposite. I’m in love with both of them and I would never choose one over the other.

Tammin Sursok

I live in Topanga Canyon, which is like a faux-rustic enclave in Los Angeles. I love the sounds of all the critters outside – the frogs, owls, crickets, and birds. Some of the birds around here are pretty accomplished musicians. You can learn a lot from them.

Cliff Martinez

I have always loved music. My mom used to sing with my sister and I when I was younger, and I was in choirs and loved to perform, but when I was in college, I went on a study abroad to Trinidad, and while I was there, I sang backup at my first concert.

Rachel Platten

I love the company of actors, but the crazier it gets, the more I’ve come to realise how valuable my time is with my friends who work on the land or are builders or, you know, make music. Work in offices. Run shops.

Andrea Riseborough

I love to act and put on a show, but you’re playing a character all the time. For music, it’s really just me being myself.

Tinashe

Probably having fallen in love with music and movies at a young age and then first learning about writing by kind of following the path of writers like Dave Marsh and Lester Bangs and being a rock journalist.

Cameron Crowe

I love bluegrass music, I love acoustic music, and I try at the right times to push that a little bit.

Dierks Bentley

I’d love to play a musician in a film.

Marianne Faithfull

Lynyrd Skynyrd has always been a bunch of rowdy, crazy people, but we love our fans, and that’s what the music is all about: touching them. Touching them touches us.

Johnny Van Zant

I love opera, I love writing for the voice, I love telling stories with music.

Anthony Davis

I’d love to do ‘Werther.’ It’s a great opera, and the music’s so beautiful.

Stephen Costello

The type of music that I love to sing would have to be more bluesy and jazzy and more soul-like ’cause I love to belt when it comes to singing, so I guess bigger songs are what I lean more towards.

Thia Megia

I love singing. It’s who I am. When I act, I take a small part of myself and just magnify it, but when I’m singing, that’s who I am. I don’t write music, so I choose songs that I would have written.

Lainie Kazan

I haven’t traveled in Africa nearly as much as I’d like to. I’ve been there a few times, and I’d like to learn more about the various cultures in Africa. But that’s the basis point of where all of the music that I love is based upon, from Africa to Cuba to Puerto Rico to South America.

Chick Corea

I basically love classical music. I love a lot of musicians playing together and the whole culture of that, whether it’s Indian or it’s Western.

A. R. Rahman

What love is to man, music is to the arts and to mankind.

Carl Maria von Weber

I’m just lucky because my kids are grown-up – I love them, very proud of them, and we are in close contact as big-time friends, but they don’t need me that much now and I can actually enjoy this wonderful world of music.

Robert Plant

I am just glad that I can take the music to the people who want to hear it. I love my audiences. I am deeply indebted to them for giving me the chance to sing my concerts, make records, and do what I love. Whatever people call it, it is great to have a voice!

Judy Collins

I love a lot of very sentimental music, but I shouldn’t necessarily be the person who makes it.

Grimes

The way I like to think about it is, even though I started music early – I started in classical music – it wasn’t until I discovered jazz that I really fell in love with music and realized this was what I wanted to do for a living.

Miguel Zenon

It doesn’t matter if you stick the name ‘bluegrass’ on it. I think people call things bluegrass that I wouldn’t necessarily call bluegrass, but what they’re calling country music today I’m not sure that I would call country music. But I love music and I try to encourage people.

Ricky Skaggs

Music will always be a part of my life. I love music and I don’t care how many units I sell.

Alanis Morissette

In one of my songs, I say fame is nothing more than loving someone. So I’m grateful every day that there’s so many fans of people out there that love my music and feel they’re connected to me through that.

Jason Mraz

When I was eight, my mum found me humming to myself and scribbling on a scrap of paper. When she asked me what I was doing, I got shy. I was writing a Christmas song, and I had never shared my music with anyone before. Reluctantly, I sang it for her… and she loved it. Of course she did – she’s my mum.

Neil Jackson

The best part of touring is the opportunity to make the music. You get to do what you love and have the ability to go out on stage every night and create.

Matisyahu

I love all kinds of music. My dad’s from London, so he loves David Bowie, the Stones, The Clash. I grew up with that influence while loving poetry and loving all kinds of current music.

Adam Hicks

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.

Marisa Miller

I love Philip Glass’ work, not only as a film composer but also as a musician. The film score work that he does always amazes and shocks me.

Park Chan-wook

I can tell you what I really love: when I run into people on the street that tell me they have connected with my music.

Solange Knowles

My whole life and my whole career, even through my music, I tell people: let’s unify; let’s show more love.

DJ Khaled

Recording a song for a film doesn’t take much time; it’s hardly an hour’s job, but concerts are constant, and so is travelling, so I’ve to take time out to work on my albums because I’m passionate about creating my own music. When you love something dearly, you set your priorities accordingly.

Kailash Kher

I’m a Muslim. I don’t try to hide it. I’m also a girl who loves music.

Yuna

I like a lot of metal music. So that’s really what I listen to a lot. Or I listen to a lot of kind of off the cuff, like I love artists like Santigold, or Gold Frapp. Yeah. Pelican. Yeah.

Jada Pinkett Smith

YouTube has changed my life in a huge way. I mean, I wouldn’t be able to pursue music and do what I love each day if it wasn’t for the YouTube platform and for the people who watch my videos and share them.

Megan Nicole

I wanted to bring back that big, ballad type of music that we used to love so much. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, when they first came out, that’s what I grew up singing.

LaToya London

You have to embrace the people that love you because you’re making a difference in people’s lives, and you’re making them feel something with your music. That, I think, is the biggest key: to stay grounded and focused and stay true to who you are as a person.

Caleb Johnson

I like and I love everything that has to do with cinema: writing, directing, editing, creating music, and even acting.

Werner Herzog

I’ve always gravitated towards the beats, obviously. And when I was growing up, I always loved funk music or even – dare I say it – disco.

Tommy Lee

I transitioned into theater and acting when I was about 9, community theater and musicals, being, like, chorus-kid-number-78 or whatever. But I just loved it. As a kid you just crave attention, and early on I just felt it was so cool and fun to play around and have people clap for me. But eventually I grew up and fell deeper into it.

Tatiana Maslany

What’s scummy about the music industry is that everybody loves you when you’re dead.

Nikki Sixx

The British may not know much about music, but they certainly loves the noise it makes.

Richard Baker

Because of the Thames I have always loved inland waterways – water in general, water sounds – there’s music in water. Brooks babbling, fountains splashing. Weirs, waterfalls; tumbling, gushing.

Julie Andrews

I would rather be on stage playing to 25 people with a band I love and the music I love than learning dance moves I don’t want to do for 25,000 people.

Drake Bell

I was very sure I did not want to be the stereotype of what Indian people are seen as, which is Bollywood and henna. That’s all great! It’s what we are, and I love it. I love saris; I love music. I love henna; I love dancing, but that’s not all we are.

Priyanka Chopra

When I was in Utah there, first learning the kind of music I love, my favorite singer was T. Texas Tyler. So my friend, Norman Ritchie, the traveling teenage sage, started calling me U. Utah Phillips.

Utah Phillips

I love a mix of kickboxing, gym, yoga, Pilates, horse riding, and dancing. I also do skinny rappelling, which is a quick cardio workout with music and lighting, so it’s fun.

Amy Jackson

I loved music from earliest childhood – from as long as I can remember.

Terry Teachout

I don’t remember ever not singing. My mother loved music, and she taught me songs, country music, spirituals. I would sing for people and pass the hat when I was 4.

Florence Henderson

I’m addicted to laughing. I go to see a lot of comedy shows. I’m addicted to playing really loud and obnoxious rock music in my car. I’m addicted to beautiful clothes and shoes. I just love gorgeous stuff and work hard to acquire pretty things, shiny things. I’m addicted to shiny things!

Nadia Giosia

Roc Nation is such an incredible, unique team, especially in the music industry. Everyone genuinely loves and cares about each other.

Rita Ora

I am a massive fan of early electronica like Steve Reich, Pat Metheny and Thomas Dolby. I used to be a big raver, too, so anything dance. I love ambient music like Tunng. I love acoustic and classical, too.

Kate Fleetwood

It is as absurd to say that a man can’t love one woman all the time as it is to say that a violinist needs several violins to play the same piece of music.

Honore de Balzac

I love being in public places, but I can’t stand long, drawn-out music festivals.

Lamorne Morris

I love oldies just kind of sweet, slinky, Fifties music. The slow stuff. And Billie Holiday.

Nastassja Kinski

The best part of making music, for me, is collaborating and working with new people and fresh sounds and all those things that gets people excited to continue in this business that we all love so much.

Mariah Carey

I love country music, blues, and punk, and one day I might make those kinds of records.

Kesha

I love what I do: there is no pressure. The music doesn’t like pressure.

Burning Spear

I love music and I enjoy creating sounds. I got into making music when I was a child, starting with the spoons and the koto before moving onto the piano.

Tobe Hooper

I was a pop freak. I love music. Of course, I knew soul because I grew up in it. Writing it and everything. I love soul. But I love a tune that has some meat in it. Something I could hang my hat on. Because music is universal. Therefore, I felt no boundaries.

Isaac Hayes

I listen to music mostly in the evening. I’ve come to love what is called world music, like the Zimbabwean Oliver Mtukudzi and the Colombian singer Marta Gomez. I also love the Irish folk singer Mary Black. Other favorites include Chet Baker, Eva Cassidy, and Billie Holiday.

Jeannette Walls

There is a big difference between No. 1 and No. 2. I don’t care who wrote it. I’d love to one day have a No. 1 that I wrote, but if that ain’t in the cards, whatever. My job is right now is to make the best music I can and try to get it to the people, whether it be something that I wrote or not. It’s my job to be the best I can for the fans.

Randy Houser

Every musician, their goal in life is to play music that people love, and I’ve accomplished my goal. I was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and left that chapter of my life and those people in the past. Good and bad, I’ve loved and am thankful for that chapter.

Steven Adler

I’ve loved Michael Jackson, his music, his music videos.

Ashley Tisdale

I was naive in that I thought I could just sing and perform and do what I had always wanted to do all my life. But I wasn’t ready for all the added dramas that came along. There were times I fell out of love with music and thought about walking away. I thought I was happier when I was that girl at home in my bedroom singing into my hairbrush.

Rebecca Ferguson

I want people to say about me, ‘I know he’s making music because he loves it.’

Hunter Hayes

I wish I had come along when the studios were making those big musical pictures. It would be great to do re-makes of some of the old ones like ‘Porgy and Bess’ or ‘Showboat.’ I’d love to do ’em.

Vanity

I’m hoping to do more with my music. I did the stage musical ‘Spring Awakening’ recently and it reignited the love I have for singing.

Janel Parrish

I would love to sing. I would love to do a musical, but I wouldn’t say that that singing is my strong suit.

Channing Tatum

I love making music, I love composing on my computer, just making crazy ethnic slack orchestral tracks, that’s one of my fun things.

Casey Abrams

I love playing video games. I love listening to music. Just surfing the web. Facebook, Twitter, keeping in touch with people from home.

Trey Burke

I completely love music. I used to be the music critic at ‘The Improper Bostonian.’ It’s just something I’ve always loved very deeply.

Matthew Tobin Anderson

I love people, and I love to be with people and to make music with people, but my natural state is to revert back to being by myself in my house, which is cool because that’s where I practice and write and listen and study.

Esperanza Spalding

I could name a few songs and say exactly what summer they came out and what boy I thought I was in love with when I was fourteen years old, but I think that music used to be really more a part of the culture when people went out dancing in a different way than they do now.

Ann Beattie

I love music, singing, and playing piano (though I’m not very good). And I adore musical theater.

Aprilynne Pike

I’m a lover of all sorts of music, which makes me a chameleon when it comes to performing anything, whether it’s opera or whatever. As long as it’s good and it feels good, I’m going to cling to it.

R. Kelly

I’ve always loved music, but I never really played anything. After ‘Walk the Line’ and learning to play guitar, and having that sense of performing, I think that certainly opened the door for me, for music.

Joaquin Phoenix

I’ve programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that’s the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come – you know, the stories and things like that.

R. Kelly

They say the music you listen to in your formative years stays with you and leaves an impression for the rest of your life. For me, the things that I fell in love with happened in the ’70s, when artists were nurtured by record companies and it wasn’t about singles.

Nikki Sixx

When I was about 6, my cousin was very active in a Filipino repertory company, doing musicals and plays. Her aunt was one of the founders of the company, and she told my mom that there were these auditions for ‘The King and I,’ and that they needed kids. I auditioned, got in and the love affair started from there and just kept going.

Lea Salonga

I’m a huge Cure fan. I love the Cure. The scales being tipped to when they weren’t on a major label compared to when they were seems pretty meaningless. I had the good fortune of having them go before me and seeing their careers, musically at least, lose something. Like a novel written by a dead hand.

Isaac Brock

I am musical and I enjoy theatre, but I never wanted to just do theatre. I always wanted to go into film. I love film. I loved growing up in the theatre, but I always wanted to do film all along. But, I still pursue music separately.

Sabrina Lloyd

When I started DJ’ing, it was no big thing. There was no money in DJ’ing, and you did it purely for the love of playing music.

Paul Oakenfold

I love some electronic music. I’m not a big fan of dubstep, but there is so much good electronic music out there.

Chino Moreno

Music is love in search of a word.

Sidney Lanier

A love song must respect the canons of music beauty, entering the fibers of those who are listening. It must make them dream and pleasantly introduce them to the universe of love.

Andrea Bocelli

I love musicals, but I find it’s just so deadening. You know, 30 takes, you do a little piece here and a little piece there. There’s hours and hours of waiting. And to me, that’s as far away from real performance as you can get.

Dick Van Dyke

I love country music, always have and always will.

Casey James

I’m a real genre jumper, but all good music belongs to the same family. I love Dave Sitek, a producer I’ve been working with a lot since I moved to L.A. He will change the game.

Erik Hassle

I was a big fan of Aaliyah’s. Growing up, my mom was a big fan of her music. When I grew to have my own taste in music, I really loved ‘One In A Million.’ That was my jam.

Alexandra Shipp

I write music because I love it. Sometimes more than anything in the world.

Ansel Elgort

Music is my life. I love doing it, so I just do it nonstop all day. And with dancing, I wanted to put on a show for people. I don’t want to just be sitting there doing nothing, so that’s when I started to dance.

Austin Mahone

I read a lot of poetry, and I love what it does with language. I love music, too, and I think there’s probably no coincidence there, that the rhythm of the words is almost as important as the words themselves, and when you can get the two working together, which usually takes me about 20 goes, I feel a huge satisfaction.

Kate Grenville

I love music; it’s my passion.

Ja Rule

I love writing plays because they are living, fluid things that are energised by the producer, designers, musicians, actors and audience.

Berlie Doherty

I like ‘Glee’ because I love all the singing. It’s like an hour-long music video. Those kids are so talented, and I love ‘The Glee Project’.

Heather Dubrow

Miley Cyrus, like all of us, needs to be loved. We all come from complicated parents… I understand her, and I love her, and I think things will be different with her. But you know, in the music business, sometimes you have to shock a little.

Richard Simmons

‘Love Letter’ is a concept album, and whenever I do a concept album – and I love doing concept albums more than any other kind of album – it allows me to get dressed, in a way, musically.

R. Kelly

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is my favorite full-length ballet, Sergei Prokofiev’s breathtaking score a favorite composition of music. As a student of martial arts, I loved drawing my sword in defense of my Capulet kin.

Sascha Radetsky

I’ve always loved music, very simply, as a vehicle to express myself and that hasn’t changed.

David Coverdale

The average music-lover hears only the production under prevailing conditions.

John Philip Sousa

Walter Cronkite was the last newsman everyone trusted in the same way that the Beatles were the last music everyone loved and Marilyn was the last star everyone concurred was worthy of the word.

Steve Erickson

I still love it. I love lots of other music, too, and always have, but punk’s the soundtrack of my youth. I think you never escape the music you’re listening to and seeing when you’re seventeen, eighteen, nineteen years old.

Elizabeth Hand

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 1]

I would love to put out music that was just stunning or soul-baring or whatever. But I don’t think I have the voice for it.

Wes Borland

My musician friends could always practice what they loved doing, but I can’t go on a street corner and start reciting a monologue. Acting is very collaborative, and you always need other people with you – mainly an audience.

Julia Stiles

A lot of the way I sing is playing off other musicians. It’s what I love to do the most.

Gloria Estefan

I also have a big love of classical music played on piano because this is the environment I grew up in my brother being one of the great masters in this world.

Suzi Quatro

The way I see it, if people truly love my music, they will support me in some way down the road.

Talib Kweli

I think music is a big, big wide world, and I am voyager on this particular ship in this sea of wild music, and I’m gonna dive in and find as many fish as I can and catch them all. I love music.

Phil Anselmo

I think I knew I was going to be a musician for the rest of my life kind of early. When I was in third grade, I was playing in a talent show, and my dad wrote a two- or three-minute boogie-woogie piece. I played it, everybody loved it, and I was like, ‘Wow, this is great.’

Gerald Clayton

Every demo I do has a mandolin or resonator on it – some element of the bluegrass or classic country world that I grew up listening to and that first drew me in. And then I always try to find somewhere for a bluesy guitar sound, because that’s also what I love. Musically, I’m always finding my way home.

Hunter Hayes

I love to play. And fortunately, I don’t know a lot of musicians that suck. I know a bunch of really good ones, and they’re always up for playing.

Dave Grohl

One thing I always loved about hip-hop music was the raw, boom-bap element – it felt powerful and manly.

Common

I just remember falling in love with the old Chris Brown music, where it was, like, that real R&B, and I love the radio smashes he’s put out since then, but I go back to his older music for that R&B.

Kehlani

I loved pop music as a little kid. Things like the Black Eyed Peas. If it had a catchy chorus, I was into it.

James Bay

I love that I can play around with all types of music.

R. Kelly

I had found English audiences highly satisfactory. They are the best listeners in the world. Perhaps the music-lovers of some of our larger cities equal the English, but I do not believe they can be surpassed in that respect.

John Philip Sousa

Everything I do is a reflection of the duality within me. Musically, I really love things that are very synthetic and unnatural. And I also like the organic and human… the intrinsic, I guess.

Zola Jesus

To play your music in front of the fans that love it, it’s like the best feeling in the world.

Big Boi

My favorite all-time artist… I would say, I think that must be Sigur Ros, I love that band. It’s like going to the stars for me. When I put the music from Jonsi or Sigur Ros on, it’s so relaxing, it’s warm and it never gets boring to listen to, you always hear new things. Yeah, that must be my favorite band.

Tiesto

My process is walking down to the locker room, laying everything out to how I like it. I’m very particular about setting up my bags and my dressing situation. I love to pull out that portable speaker and blare music even if nobody else likes it. To me, its just keeping everything the same every single night.

Roman Reigns

My parents loved music, and my father would come home with cassette tapes of Chic and the Village People and Barbra Streisand. We had all these sounds always going. We never had somber music – always upbeat.

Marjorie Gubelmann

People always accuse me of being motivational in a way, like it was a bad thing, but that’s just how I was raised. My mom raised me in a positive environment, with lots of love in my heart, and that reflects in my music.

Lenny Kravitz

Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you’re always going to find a hip-hop tape; that’s all I buy, that’s all I live, that’s all I listen to, that’s all I love.

Eminem

I had a friend write me that our music was being played at Gay Pride in New York, which is a big compliment. In the biggest city in the country with the most culture and the most grit – I love it.

Jennifer Nettles

Listen to your inner-voice: Surround yourself with loving, nurturing people. Fall in love with your art and find yourself. Music is the great communicator.

Glenn Hughes

There was so much great music around in the ’60s, stuff like The Small Faces, but I also love The Jam.

Iwan Rheon

One of the things that I loved about listening to Miles Davis is that Miles always had an instinct for which musicians were great for what situations. He could always pick a band, and that was the thing that separated him from everybody else.

Branford Marsalis

For me, if the music is good, whether the artist is famous or unknown, I love being part of the music and contributing what I can to the bass end.

Tony Levin

I love that way dance music can put you in a trance.

Chet Faker

As I grew up, I was interested in other areas, too, especially literature. It became a major love of mine. Later, it became a difficult choice for me as to whether to major in music or literature. It wasn’t until my 30s that I began a profession in music.

Tom Glazer

I love all music. Right now I am loving Josh Grobin and Kelly Clarkson.

Kaley Cuoco

I’d love to see a Nirvana biopic. I loved them when I was younger. I really like jazz music, so I’d like to see a Billie Holiday biopic – she was a fascinating woman.

Antonia Thomas

If I’m going on any trip, driving music is key. Road Hammers is good driving music. I don’t mind listening to my own stuff. You record it for a certain reason. You fall in a love with a certain song at a certain time and how you record it is a labour of love. You better love it.

Jason McCoy

The Sound of Music was just such an honour to be in, because it was a movie that appeals to so many people, and they just loved it so much and they still love it to this day.

Angela Cartwright

It just tends to be that the grass is always greener. If I’m doing a movie, I suddenly think, ‘Oh God, I wish I could just get a play script I could get my teeth into.’ If I’m doing eight shows a week in a West End musical, I think, ‘God, how lovely it would be to be in a TV series right now.’

Douglas Hodge

I don’t feel guilty about the music I love. If you feel guilty about something you dig, then you should stop feeling guilty about it. One of my favorite albums to this day is the 10th anniversary ensemble cast of ‘Les Miserables,’ the ultimate cast recording, and it is still something I love listening to top to bottom.

Corey Taylor

I’ve always listened to and loved country music ever since I was a kid.

Laura Bell Bundy

I love ’50s music, all that stuff from the ’50s.

Steve Jones

I love Rebel Rebel in Manhattan’s West Village for vinyl, but record stores are hard to come by these days. I almost don’t even use iTunes. I mostly use music subscription services. But I’ll go into Rebel Rebel once a month or so and buy everything I love on vinyl.

Jake Shears

I’m confused that there is a lack of faith in listening to and deciding what is a great song and instead going for these formulaic, bad songs over and over again. But that’s what happened when people from beverage companies bought record labels and radio stations as opposed to people who love music owning record labels.

Patty Griffin

I’m a very lucky guy. I get to write music that I love, and lo and behold, people seem to really like it. I know how fortunate I am.

Corey Taylor

When I was 17, I listened to reggae music. I loved Bob Marley. I started growing dreadlocks. It’s always been my way, that the outside matches what’s going on with me inside.

Matisyahu

I love making music. I love being involved in arranging music. It’s very natural to know what I want to hear next and come up with ideas that are variations of what might be good.

Stone Gossard

I would love to do a musical!

Eli Roth

Napster is great so long as they put out tracks on there that have been officially released. I don’t really mind people downloading my music; I also see it as a compliment. And if you are a real music lover, you want to have the original CD anyway ’cause then you feel more connected to the artist.

Tiesto

Since I was a kid, I always felt the need to share the music I love with as many people as possible, and DJing seemed like the perfect outlet.

Tiesto

My mother got me into music when I was a little kid. She used to play music, blast it, when she was cleaning the house, while I was crawling around. I just love loud music.

Pauly D

I really like the old stuff that I cut my musical teeth on, and I loved it when the industry was just like that, without really a genre. Today, country radio’s more aimed at a demographic than a genre. It just softens everything.

Gary Allan

I love Celtic music and listening to it, but I just don’t have the type of voice to sing it.

Sophie Kennedy Clark

I love music, and outside of work my family keeps me very busy, I have five children to keep track of.

Alberto Juantorena

My father, a mining engineer and colliery manager, gave his brood many advantages, not least of which, for me, was his love of singing, which gave music a central place in our lives.

James Black

I couldn’t afford to go to drama school in London. Then I met with the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, and I fell in love with the city. It was one of the few schools that offered me a place. It didn’t do me any harm.

Tom Ellis

I love pop music, but I feel like the genre is overpopulated – there was so much bubblegum for a while, but I feel like Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran are bringing good, real music back to the radio.

Jacob Whitesides

I love music, and I once thought about doing a choral scholarship, but the people put me off.

Rory Kinnear

I love Lady Gaga, Rihanna – all the pop girls like Katy Perry. I think Miley Cyrus is very talented, too. Apart from the visuals, which you may like or not like, but her music is quite good, actually. ‘Wrecking Ball’ is quite a good song, and she sang it really nicely.

Giorgio Moroder

I’d like to expand on doing what I love and venture out a bit more. I would like to play consistantly good music. Eventually someday I would like to open up a school and teach kids about music.

Bo Bice

It’s not every day you get to create a band like the Sex Pistols, and what it changed, on a musical level. I love that we’ve done something that was important.

Steve Jones

I just like the lineage and the heritage and the fact that British dance music is still progressing. I’m from London; I love London, and I wouldn’t know how else to show that love in musical terms. There’s something about British stuff that’s a bit faster, a bit harder-hitting. Just tough.

Jamie xx

I want to live with that sense with the music I make, with the art I make, with the way I love my kids, with the way I am a father and a husband and a friend and a follower of Christ, I want to live with reckless abandonment to the truth of the Gospel.

Steven Curtis Chapman

The way that I’ve always gone about making music, the rule of thumb, has just been to make what I love.

Amy Lee

I would love to have a go at a band or some form of music one day.

Landon Liboiron

I’m a big fan of certain new acts. I love any genre of music, and I think it’s really great to see that there are new artists coming through. It’s kinda funny to think that I’m like the old man on campus now. But I’m really happy for groups like One Direction. I think they’re really good guys.

Joe Jonas

With Sumthin Else Music Works, I wanted to spread the love and give newcomers a chance to make it because something that really helped me were all the people who had given me an opportunity when I was putting my career together.

Nile Rodgers

The people who I grew up making music with, we’ve all grown up and become successful in different ways. My manager supported me since I was 16 and believed in me as a musician. He’s been there since Day 1, and there’s so much to be said about doing something with people that you love.

Skrillex

Ooooh, I love Nashville! It seems like everywhere you walk, there’s great music coming out of every wall.

Imelda May

Science-fiction cities in general, I think, are so hard to get right, because it’s so easy to just play some cheesy music or do something that takes you right out of it, but ‘Blade Runner’ got it right, and I love that about the film.

Duncan Jones

One thing I’ve always loved doing is hanging out and talking music with other artists.

Nikki Sixx

And I don’t feel any form of music is beyond me in the sense of that I don’t understand it or I don’t have some love for some part of it.

Elvis Costello

Napster works because people who love music share and participate.

Shawn Fanning

When I started Dylan’s Candy Bar in 2001, I wanted it to be a place that merged my love of pop culture, fashion, art and music with candy. Since then, we have been fortunate to pioneer artistic partnerships with many legends.

Dylan Lauren

I do want to make music that people love, but I also want to make music that I love. I know I can’t please everyone with anything I do, so I don’t think too much about how other people are going to take things.

Rivers Cuomo

I love music, and I love drumlines. I like school bands a lot. There’s nothing wrong with cheerleading, but I’d rather be a band geek. It’s a little more interesting.

Jurnee Smollett

Singing really is acting. In a lot of ways, it’s much more personal. I love music, and being able to work on that is amazing.

Leighton Meester

I love country music.

Eric Close

The first music I was exposed to was Stravinsky and I loved it but I don’t remember it.

Leo Kottke

Growing up, my parents always played artists like Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith and Michael Jackson, so I just grew to love their music. And I just love so many diverse artists for different reasons; some for their instruments, some for their edge, some for their vocals.

Manika

I grew up listening to everything. I was in rock n’ roll bands and punk bands, and I loved bluegrass and country music, too. Then, when I moved to Nashville, I put out a very traditional country record because that’s just what you do. I had a bunch of very traditional country songs. Next thing you know, you’re a country singer.

Sturgill Simpson

Music had been my first love among the arts, and I was fascinated by it, as I still am.

Harry Mathews

Music was always the distraction, so it was the obvious choice to pursue. My dad always said to find a job I love to do, that way it wouldn’t feel like a job. So I did that.

Jason Mraz

Reggae is my heart since I was a kid. I love Reggae music.

Eve

I find myself listening to Talk Talk on repeat while I’m doing gardening in upstate New York. Their music is so languid, and I just love his voice.

Parker Posey

I would love to do a musical. When I did ‘Fame L.A.’ for a year – all the singing, dancing and acting – I was in heaven. I cried so much when they cancelled the show. I mean, I loved going to work and I couldn’t wait to get on the set.

Roselyn Sanchez

When my novel ‘Beach Music’ came out in 1995, I had included a couple of recipes in the book and had tried to impart some of my love of Roman cuisine and the restaurants of Rome.

Pat Conroy

I love Calle 13 – they are Puerto Rican; some songs sound like Reggaeton, but it’s not Reggaeton; it’s good urban music.

Stephanie Sigman

I love music passionately. And because I love it I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.

Claude Debussy

My love for American music and American movies is from an early age. I was 10 or 11 when I heard Fats Domino and Little Richard and Buddy Holly. And the movies, my dad used to take my brother and I to the movies every Friday. It was incredible: we got to see just about every movie that came out for a period of years.

Ian McLagan

I mean, there’s times to rock and roll, and I love that too. But I think my first love is acoustic music.

Graham Nash

I go to a very visual place when I’m singing. It’s very cinematic and I get this feeling of space. I love when music does that.

Dave Gahan

For me, fragrances are very – one of these beautiful art forms that bring about a whole host of things. It’s what you want to smell like, it’s memories that make you smile or are resonant of times in your life, it can remind you of music. If you’re a lover of scent, it’s a very kind of particular and evocative thing.

Chris Pine

I’ve realized that I love all forms of music and get excited when any artist goes crazy and creates something that is an experience.

Tom DeLonge

The truth is I love musical theater and always have.

Idina Menzel

I’d love to do an action film. I’d love to do a film based on a book series; I love to read the book and then go see the movie. I’d love to have a show on Disney; I love working for them. And I’m also working on getting some new music out of my own.

Katherine McNamara

It is significant that one says book lover and music lover and art lover but not record lover or CD lover or, conversely, text lover.

James Gleick

When it all started, record companies – and there were many of them, and this was a good thing – were run by people who loved records, people like Ahmet Ertegun, who ran Atlantic Records, who were record collectors. They got in it because they loved music… Now, record companies are run by lawyers and accountants.

David Crosby

When we decided to go to Cuba to perform, we did it because we just wanted to build a bridge, you know, between Cuba and the rest of the community. And we just wanted to prove that music and art need to be over all ideology or way to think life, and we just wanted to go in there and play just because of love.

Juanes

We will miss George for his sense of love, his sense of music and his sense of laughter.

Ringo Starr

I love finding out-of-the-box inspirations and blending them with what I’ve done in the past. And when I started to experiment with genres, it didn’t sound forced. Maybe that’s because it’s all music that I listened to growing up, and it’s all music that I love.

Avicii

I love… different kinds of music. I like classical music and pop music. I like alternative, and I like rap, hip-hop, and I kind of collected all these things that I love, and they infused my sensibilities, and I just wanted to sing because it felt like it needed to come out of me.

Rachel Platten

I love making music and I’m falling in love with making records, so it’s like having two girlfriends. But I can handle it.

Snoop Dogg

The only time I would like to see was the 20s and 30s in America because I love the music and the style and the optimism, I wanted to see New York being built. I wanted to see all that, you know.

Billy Connolly

I liked being in a smaller theater. I love doing shows of all sizes, but sometimes it’s nice to be in a smaller space and to strip away some of the music so that you can be a little less than larger-than-life; you can be a little more naturalistic.

Max von Essen

I made one rule for myself, and I really try to live it: Play music you love, with people you love, for people you love. If I can’t be that kind of musician, I’ll drive a cab.

Arturo O’Farrill

I’ve always loved musical films; I find them really thrilling and exciting; it was part of what made me want to be an actress, that feeling of being really transported.

Hannah Murray

I was brought up with beautiful music – Nat King Cole and Glen Miller from my dad, and my mum loved Judy Garland and Doris Day – brilliant stuff. Through my brothers and sisters I heard David Bowie and The Specials, The Carpenters, Meatloaf and The Rolling Stones.

Imelda May

One of my reasons for living in California is its close proximity to Mexico. The Latin influence is in every corner of the community. My love of Spanish music hasn’t wavered since the ’50s. I could hear the blues voicing from the Flamanco families and I always dig for inspiration in Latin music.

Eric Burdon

I’ve loved music. It was my first everything, but fashion and clothes is just the next step.

Rita Ora

I’ve spent a lifetime in love with country music.

Blake Shelton

I became a set designer for opera. I’m a great opera buff, I love classical music, and I needed a time-out.

Maurice Sendak

Well, the musicals give emphasis to love, longing, melancholy, sadness. All of that is always there.

Ismail Merchant

I’m one of those artists that doesn’t actually hate my old hits. I love Boston music. I really like ‘More than a Feeling.’ After playing it to myself in a basement for such a long time, I’m happy to do it out on stage.

Tom Scholz

After touring with David Bowie last year, I was inspired to look at what I wanted to do as an artist, and I realized I wanted to go back to the music I fell in love with when I was eight years old.

Emm Gryner

We don’t typically use music. We don’t manipulate our audience into what we think it should feel. We tell the truth. That’s ‘Southland’ Style’… and I love it!

Shawn Hatosy

Plantation gospel music was the stuff I fell in love with when I was a kid – these beautiful melodies and these hard, hard stories.

Bobby Womack

It doesn’t seem expected for us to do something like that, but I love electronic music. I spend a lot of my time listening to that and just trying to understand what makes it work – what makes it move people the way it does and why they have some of the best-selling festivals in the world.

Zac Brown

I do love dance music. I love Daft Punk. I mean, I was a child in the ’80s, so bands like the Eurythmics and just so many great ’80s bands were dance bands, but they had the whole soul thing happening, too.

Corin Tucker

But I really love music, and having a creative outlet is really the best thing you can do for yourself.

Edie Brickell

I have many musical inspirations, but I would really love to just be me. My very own artist.

Thia Megia

When I did ‘Frankenstein,’ the record company said, ‘Now you can do ‘Dracula’ and ‘Wolf Man’ and we’ll call the whole thing Monster Rock!’ and I said, ‘No, that’s not going to happen, I’m not going to do that.’ I kind of enjoy defying categorization. I love music in and of itself. I love the beauty of harmony and rhythm.

Edgar Winter

This is how many people become artists, musicians, writers, computer programmers, record-holding athletes, scientists… by spending time alone practicing what they love.

Meg Cabot

I love the intimacy of making movies. The focus is deeper and much more intense than musical theatre.

Sarah Brightman

Music is my first love, and I can’t step away from her. I love music, and I love playing and living the dream, but I also miss my family.

Dierks Bentley

I love playing instruments that I don’t know how to play or am not familiar with. I like the idea of danger and innocence that comes from it. As an artist, I feel I should be able to do something with anything I get my hands on. The music becomes minimalist because of my limited knowledge.

Gustavo Santaolalla

I love to read. I love to stretch. In the morning, I get up, and if I’m not in a hurry, I will lie on the floor on a rug, look through some books and magazines, and maybe listen to music and try to do stretching exercises to tune up.

Jackson Browne

I really had a great time working with ‘Modest Mouse,’ just because of the people. I loved writing songs with Isaac Brock, and Jeremiah Green is probably my favorite musician that I’ve worked with.

Johnny Marr

I’ve always loved music videos – I used to make my own for bands like Pearl Jam. My favorite directors are Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, and Patrick Daughters.

Akiva Schaffer

David Lynch is my friend, and I love his movies and his art and his music. Few things make me happier than working with him.

Moby

I feel so lucky to have lived the life that I did and to be surrounded by the people I love. I’ve got eight kids, and they’re always laughing all the time. It’s like music to my ears. I think that my frame of mind these days is probably happier than I’ve ever been, which is kind of odd, coming close to the finish line.

Kris Kristofferson

Super casual music listeners. That’s most of the people in the world. And you have to understand, that’s why Top 40 radio exists. It’s not there for people who seek out music and who love music.

Michael Stipe

I was excited to get the opportunity to sing something in a movie ’cause I love musicals and I would love to be able to do more movie musicals, in the future.

Kate Mara

I really do love Diana Ross; I grew up listening to her records. I grew up in a little town in Mexico, so while we got the music, we never got the experience of watching her.

Salma Hayek

I found I loved musicals as much or more than the pure dance world. I also think I became tired of dancing for other dancers.

Patricia Birch

I love a lot of music that’s considered folk music, but I also love a lot of music that’s considered punk or considered rap. I don’t mind being called a folk singer. But it seems a bit limiting. I want to be able to write whatever kind of song I want.

Langhorne Slim

Obviously you have to have rhythm. If you have rhythm, then you can play anything you need. If you have rhythm and you love music, then play and play and play until you get to where you want to get. If you can pay the rent, great. If you can’t, then you’d better be having fun.

Eddie Van Halen

I fell in love with playing the trumpet because of what we call ‘hot jazz’ of the 1920s and 1930s, music that has a higher energy to it.

Bria Skonberg

Of emotions, of love, of breakup, of love and hate and death and dying, mama, apple pie, and the whole thing. It covers a lot of territory, country music does.

Johnny Cash

I loved music since the Seth Ward Baptist Church outside of Plainview.

Jimmy Dean

I have a love of baseball and a love of music.

Jason Aldean

I love to listen to pop music and I admire people who do that, but I don’t think I would ever be a very good pop star. I always leave that singing voice for the shower! I wouldn’t put it out in the world!

Katherine Jenkins

The audience, they’re not professionals. They just love music. It isn’t necessary to play over their heads to be admired.

Les Paul

I love grooves and dance music, but I like the feeling behind songs too.

Michael Kiwanuka

That was my first love growing up – classical orchestral music, especially Impressionism.

Butch Trucks

I love jazz music and sad music. I’m a sentimental guy. I’m a romantic guy.

Fred Durst

I like country music. I’m not going to lie. I’m from the South, and I grew up on it. My dad was a country singer-songwriter, so it’s in my blood, and I love it.

Kim Dickens

I’d love to do a live album, like a little bit old school but still progressive, influenced maybe by more electronic music. I like everything, but I don’t know anything about music. So it comes in to a lot of different ingredients. I love hip hop.

Erik Hassle

I write about love, but it’s me wanting to be in love. I’ve never been in love. I love my mom, my dad. I want to be in love. I think I have to allow myself to get there. I’m just so in love with music. It’s weird. I’m at a crossroads because I want to be in love.

Charlie Puth

In the ballet studio, it was such an organized and disciplined environment, like I’d never had in my life. Seeing myself in the mirror, surrounded by the classical music, that’s when I started to fall in love with dance.

Misty Copeland

I still love music – that’s never gonna go away.

Nick Rhodes

I don’t live in this soul music bubble. I love Young Thug, Drake, Kendrick Lamar. I even heard that Kendrick was a fan of my music. Hopefully there’s a door open for us to do music together. He’s one of my favorite artists. I love Jazmine Sullivan, Lianne la Havas, Usher, Ginuwine. It goes further than classic soul.

Leon Bridges

I’m not in it for the money. I like music. I love to write music. I can’t imagine myself not playing or singing or writing. It would just drive me crazy if I didn’t.

Paul Simon

I always loved the look of musicians. I’ve always admired them because they have a look – when I was growing up, it seemed that the ones I liked didn’t need to have a stylist.

Frida Giannini

Sour Patch, Swedish Fish. I love candy, man. I can’t go without candy. And when I’m recording, I always have a TV on with cartoons – on mute, though. When I’m recording, I like to look at the TV now and then and see some crazy, wacky stuff. When you’re thinking creative, it just keeps you creative. Everybody got their way of making music.

Tyga

I love music, of course, and many, many, many genres. There are hardly any songs I would say that I hate. There’s a couple, and I don’t even know exactly why I don’t like them.

David Lynch

Country music is about new love and it’s about old love.

Jeff Foxworthy

I love music, and a lot of it. Jazz is probably on the top with guys like Miles Davis. But I even enjoy music from the ’60s and ’70s.

Donovan Bailey

I’d love to do movies and be on TV. But I think if I transitioned into TV/film completely, I would really miss singing and dancing. It would be ideal to be cast in a movie musical!

Laura Osnes

I love music and musicians. And seeing great artists dropped from labels was really frustrating and sad to me.

Rosanna Arquette

I have a love-hate relationship with the Grammys because I don’t see the music world as a competitive sport.

James Taylor

Music is my first love.

Jacob Latimore

I’ve always loved hip-hop, since I was a kid, that’s the music that I loved. I think everyone of our generation kind of fantasized about hip-hop in some ways.

Joaquin Phoenix

The 1960s were big for folk music, and the Kingston Trio led the way. They were the ones who started it all. The music was fresh and alive. College kids loved it and their parents did, too.

George Grove

But I love to write music. What I would love to do is give some of the songs I write to someone like Taylor Swift because I feel like she could sing them.

Keegan Allen

I love music. I still play cello a few times a week.

Olivia Culpo

I love music, and can dance on the desi beats. Punjabi music is my favourite. I listen to artists like Honey Singh. I love his music. I also love watching Bollywood films.

Vijender Singh

I definitely knew I wanted to be an actor in high school. I was doing plays and musicals, and I loved ‘Saturday Night Live’ and thought that was what I wanted to do – funny sketches and comedies. So I knew then, but I didn’t know how to go about it, but I found my way.

Jerry Trainor

After filming, I can’t wait to shake off all that ’50s primness. I’ll go out to a gig and dance ridiculously. I love to lose myself in music. Just letting go – it’s dead important.

Jessica Raine

I feel like music and acting are so much my love, and they’re so much equal in my eyes. I couldn’t really choose between the two.

Aly Michalka

I was chomping at the bit to get my career started – so after I took all the theater courses at Brooklyn College I enrolled in a two year program at AMDA in the city (The American Musical Dramatic Academy) I was there for 6 months and loved it.

Didi Conn

I love music and I love to dance.

Jami Gertz

We all feel love, and that might sound kind of corny, but I really feel that’s what joins musicians together around the world.

Enrique Iglesias

When I was 14, I came very close to becoming a gay teen suicide ‘statistic,’ but I then turned to music, my piano, my loved ones, and discovered that it does in fact get better.

Blake McIver Ewing

I love the history of popular music. I love to know what people are listening to, even if I don’t like it.

Tim Rice

I’m a fan of creating the mood and vibe with flowers, candles, and music. I love making my guests feel like it’s not formal and they can relax in my home.

Karen Elson

I love being a part of country music. I love going out and… doing things for the first time for country music. I always enjoy that.

Garth Brooks

It’s something he used to say when he was happy. It could be a very, very simple day. We might be sitting out on the front lawn. Dad loved classical music and we might be listening to some Stravinsky or something and having some tea and eggs. And he’d say, ‘Oh, good stuff, isn’t it?’

Jennifer Grant

I’m very flower-like. I love classical music. I go to ballet and I cry. There’s nothing so beautiful.

Michael Gambon

I think people who just know me from my band think I don’t like pop music. The truth is I love pop music.

Pete Wentz

I love to play music. So why endanger that with something like drugs?

Dave Grohl

I like Honey Singh. I love the music that he does.

Armaan Malik

Usually, I’ll just sit down at a piano or with a guitar, and I’ll just be relaxed and playing music. Because that’s what relaxes your subconscious. That’s why everyone from animals to humans love music.

Cat Power

I come to New Orleans so often that, one day soon, someone’s going to declare me a native. I love the food. I love the music. I serve on the board of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

Soledad O’Brien

If music be the food of love, play on.

William Shakespeare

I always felt a love for music, but I never got my nerve up enough to try a musical instrument in school.

Don Cornelius

Well, I love Bob Dylan, let’s make that clear. He’s one of my musical heroes.

Tim Heidecker

I love having music just to chill to and also to rev me up a bit.

Alexander Hanson

I am a musician who also does love to explore the world in many ways, so my approaching with my songs, videos, and haikus is: ‘Make It Real.’

Flula Borg

The music I love listening to is more of the Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Dido, Jewel, Nora Jones, Joss Stone, a bit more of that organic live-instrumentation feel.

Tammin Sursok

I love ’80s rock music. I was fascinated with Stevie Nicks when I was growing up.

Bresha Webb

I am a muso, and I love doing it. I assumed that would be my career for a long time. I always wanted to be a writer, but I didn’t think that anyone could actually be that full-time, so I always go back to conducting and arranging and playing. If you scratch me, I’m a musician.

Jason Robert Brown

I’ve always loved projects where I can combine acting and music.

Natalia Tena

I think it’s important for people who love music to retain physical CDs or even vinyl, because it sounds so great and so much warmer than music over the internet.

Norah Jones

I just love music in general. I’ve been a fan of all different kinds of music since I can remember.

Ray Stevens

I really admire David Guetta; he’s an unbelievable DJ and I love his style, his music and everything like that. So I look up to him.

Pauly D

Feelings such as loneliness, longing or love are sometimes hard to put into words; maybe that’s why we all love music, because it resonates with something we can’t share.

Agnes Obel

I’m a very impatient person. I love dancing, I love music, and I love eating life.

Natalia Tena

All the music I loved as a child, people thought it was junk. People were unaware of the subtext in so many of those records, but if you were a kid, you were just completely tuned in, even though you didn’t always say – you wouldn’t dare say it was beautiful.

Bruce Springsteen

I don’t like to use the word ‘fans;’ I call them ‘Dick Dale music lovers.’

Dick Dale

‘West Side Story’ I used to watch all the time – I don’t know why. Well, I do – it’s a great movie. I love the music in it. I love the actors.

Charlie Rowe

I love classical music. Yes, I was in a conservatory when I was younger and played guitar and all that stuff, so I also love rock.

Matt Schulze

I loved the guitar, and I had all of this music in my head. My passion for the guitar and the ideas for what I could create musically were equal. So that’s where I was.

Steve Vai

I like doing music. I like singing. I love all music. Music kind of goes hand in hand with acting anyway.

Jeremy Shada

I love dogs. I think dogs are way smarter. Maybe I can be the dog spokesman for the rock world. There are a lot of cat people making rock music.

King Tuff

I love Aerosmith. I love Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, anything from that era, Led Zeppelin. So my guitar style is very much like Slash or Jimmy Page. I love playing that kind of music. It’s where my heart’s at.

Billy Unger

I love doing concert music.

Les Baxter

I grew up on hip-hop. I grew up on Run-D.M.C., Whodini, LL when I was in college, so I’m more of a music fan. I probably have the most eclectic collection of music in my Grand Cherokee. Literally, in a span of a week, I’ll go from 2Pac to Boyz II Men to Sister Hazel, right down to West Side Story or the Wiz. I love show tunes.

Stuart Scott

If you really love music, people can tell if you love music. You have to just stick with it.

Raphael Saadiq

I have such an eclectic taste in music. Come to a backyard BBQ at my house, and I will run the gamut from Skynyrd to Sinatra to ’90s grunge, rap, R&B, and classic rock. I have issues. If I had to pick one, I love this country artist named Craig Morgan. His music and his songs are so relatable and tell such vivid stories.

Mike Vogel

I love house music. I love all music.

Concha Buika

Lovers of painting and lovers of music are people who openly display their preference like a delectable ailment that isolates them and makes them proud.

Maurice Blanchot

Country music is important to me, and I love it, but it’s not my whole life… I like to be outdoors, I like to hunt, I like to fish, I like to play golf.

George Strait

I’ve always loved the songs of the sea. I was first introduced to them back in 1957, at the Old Town School of Folk Music. I used to go to Pete Seeger concerts, and he would do songs like ‘Ruben Ranzo’ and talk about how the sailors sang songs to do their work – to raise the anchors, pull up the sails and that sort of thing.

Roger McGuinn

The funny thing is musicians often love to go to see visual art because you’ve got all these pictures to turn into metaphors.

Dar Williams

I have never had a great love of the music business, I never have.

Ginger Baker

I’ve always loved to prove people wrong. I want to be able to cross color lines, because in music, there really is no barrier.

Pink

When you limit the word ‘jazz’ to one period of history, for the people who love that period, then maybe it can be dead because nobody plays like that anymore. But jazz is progressive music; it always has to progress, and musicians always have to find new landscapes and new ways to speak out, so of course it’s always changing.

Hiromi Uehara

I would love to sign on to do a movie if it was the right role and if it was the right script, because I would be taking time away from music to tell a big grand story, and spend all of my time and pouring all of my emotions into being someone else. So for me to do that, it would have to be a story worth telling.

Taylor Swift

Bob Marley is a huge influence. I love reggae music, but I also love the purpose of the songs he writes and the style of the music – it takes your worries away and makes you feel good, and I think that’s what music is about.

Colbie Caillat

I guess the two Manifesto, Communicating Vessels, Mad Love, and some of his poetry made a significant mark on me but as far as bringing a literary element into the music I see it as a much broader assimilation.

Trevor Dunn

I love to listen to the music that first inspired me – I get that fresh feeling back.

Joe Perry

I loved old black and white movies, especially the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals. I loved everything about them – the songs, the music, the romance and the spectacle. They were real class and I knew that I wanted to be in that world.

Sharon Stone

I just loved classical music, but I also loved playing rock guitar, and I loved playing piano, so it was a natural thing that those things would merge at some point.

Trevor Rabin

Piano playing is a dying art. I love the fact that I can be one guy with one instrument evoking an emotional and musical experience.

Jon Bon Jovi

I would love to make my music and be completely anonymous, but that doesn’t work. You can’t have success and be faceless.

Sarah McLachlan

I still listen to a lot of the classics from Bob Dylan and John Martin, but I love electronic music as well. I’m a big fan of an Australian DJ and producer called Flume, who I think is incredible. He should be more successful in the U.K.!

Gabrielle Aplin

Country and western is the music of the devil. That’s the real truth of the matter. My late Mother, bless her, loved country and western. God, I couldn’t handle it.

Rick Wakeman

Ray had so much love of life and the music. He had so much integrity. He treated the music with so much dignity and respect. I spent four and a half years as a sideman with Ray Brown’s trio. Music was his life, more so than anyone I could mention.

Benny Green

My style is boho chic. I love that time period – the patterns, the prints, the people, the music, the vibe.

Vanessa Hudgens

I just really always try to do what’s in my heart and I’m still passionate about the music; I still love what I am doing.

Teena Marie

Singing is my passion, my first love and the secret of my energy. Music to me is like finding my inner self, my soul. It gives me a great joy to see audiences enjoying with me. I have given my heart to singing. When I sing, I can feel romance in everything around me.

Kailash Kher

I can’t work on something if I don’t believe in it. I love music, and I am inspired to work harder and spend more energy. I feel lucky that I was born with this passion.

Carolina Kostner

No disrespect to any other god, but Shiva’s an outsider god. He breaks the rules. He’s a brilliant musician, a brilliant dancer; he treats his wife as an equal, and she opposes him many times, but he obsessively loves her.

Amish Tripathi

Rock & roll has kept us alive for all these years. But we just love country music. It’s in our blood.

Johnny Van Zant

What’s the difference between male and female passion? If love is a drug, what are its side effects? Rhye makes chill-out music, but it never quite lets your mind switch off.

Will Hermes

If one uses music that one does not really love, then one will not succeed in making it one’s own.

Lukas Foss

One of the things that makes me most happy about music is that I can look at a picture and see Da Brat, Missy, Lil Kim, Left Eye, and I know Aaliyah is a singer, but to see them all in one photo together hugging and laughing and really having genuine love for each other… I want to feel that with my hip hop sisters.

Lil Mama

I love musicals. I love horror movies and I love art movies.

Jason Blum

But I just love that music scene so much, and I enjoy really being around those artists and watching them even more than I do performing, because they are a whole group of people that do it because they love music.

Lee Ann Womack

Nas has always been uncomfortable with being famous and accessible. Nas makes music because he loves music, not because he wants the trappings of music, such as fame.

Steve Stoute

I don’t really love to perform in music. Some people like it more, but it’s not my thing so much, but just the writing, when you get the lyric, and the lyric just goes just the right way, or you find the right bridge that takes you to the solo, and those moments are tremendous, and it’s difficult to portray.

Pardis Sabeti

I just love performing so much, and I threw myself into every musical theater production that was going in my home town and at school. And then, I went to the National Youth Music Theatre, which was really a galvanizing experience for me when I was 17.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw

I love the power of the musician who composes and performs. I envy their ability to put a nugget of truth in three minutes of sweat and emotional outpouring, colored entirely from their thoughts.

Kim Harrison

I love music in general. It’s like girls and their clothes and shoes; when you love shoes, you love shoes. So, for me, I think it’s a really dangerous thing to say I’m going to write the best dance song in the world.

Nadia Ali

I would love to have a varied career, like Hugh Jackman. He started in musical theater, then established himself in film, but he still does a lot of stage work. And he does it all beautifully.

Samantha Barks

The trouble with music appreciation in general is that people are taught to have too much respect for music they should be taught to love it instead.

Igor Stravinsky

My dad’s side of the family had lots of artists and musicians. There’s an emotional, quite sentimental quality to Slavic culture. It’s very open, it loves art, it loves music, it loves literature. It’s very warm, it’s very up, it’s very down. I would celebrate that.

Nick Clegg

I don’t have to compete in the charts. I can just be myself as a musician, a songwriter and play with the musicians that I really love.

Elton John

I love writing songs and being a musician, but you can’t really buy the feeling of connecting with people.

Michael Kiwanuka

Alanis Morissette – I love how she’s not afraid to say what she wants to say. Love it or hate it, she’s going to say it. And her vocals are crazy; they’re amazing, and I also love how her music is really organic.

Manika

What I’ve discovered is that in art, as in music, there’s a lot of truth-and then there’s a lie. The artist is essentially creating his work to make this lie a truth, but he slides it in amongst all the others. The tiny little lie is the moment I live for, my moment. It’s the moment that the audience falls in love.

Lady Gaga

We love not just Judas Priest music, but we love heavy metal and we love to get out on that stage every night and perform. It’s a joy to be able to do it.

Glenn Tipton

The music business used to carry a certain amount of brotherly love, but it isn’t that way now.

Jimmy Rushing

A lot of people these days are not music lovers – they just want to be famous which is a very different thing to what I grew up believing in.

Shirley Manson

I loved when my dad was home. He liked to sit in the living room and watch boxing and baseball on TV. Or he’d be tinkering around or listening to records by his musician buddies – George Shearing, Oscar Peterson and the Jackie Gleason Orchestra.

Natalie Cole
