"Without music, life would be a mistake." — Friedrich Nietzsche
Nietzsche hit the nail on the head and we can all safely say that music is the food for the soul and as Shakespeare said, "let it play on!" It is clear this noted philosopher, referred to the complex and voluptuous compositions of Richard Wagner, one of his idols during the first stages of his philosophy. Without a doubt, music awakens our Dionysian spirit.
Nietzsche couldn't foresee the transformation of music and the evolution of sound, the strings of violins and the clashing of cymbals of the great operettas would be overshadowed by strident sounds and grungy, earthy music. It is possible this German philosopher would accept the importance of rock music for the spirit of man.
