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

Ansel Elgort

Kid Rock
