Word of the Day: Music

Tonight (Oh I am SO excited!) we are going to see my all time favourite musical, Les Miserables. So in honour of this, today’s word is . . .

Music

Word Origins:

‘Music’ came into English from Old French musique. This came to the French from the ancient Greek (via Latin – of course!) mousike meaning literally, ‘art of the Muses’. The Muses themselves were nine goddesses from Greek (and Roman) mythology who presided over the arts and sciences.

Urban Dictionary Definition:

  1. Ruined by MTV
  2. Mankinds Grestest Achievement.
  3. Something the world would be lost without
  4. Indefinable by words alone. It is not only something you hear but what you feel. It is something your soul can reach out and touch. It originates from all over the world since time began. Complex or simple, fast or slow, loud or soft. It is what you feel, or it could be your method of escape or it could just keep you alive.
  5. It’s not something that you can just record and manufacture onto a CD and sell for $21.99.

Nat’s Definitions:

  • A spellbinding sound that evokes all manner of emotions and memories.
  • The sounds of our past.
  • Created by superb bands that you only fell into because of a boy you fancied at the time.
  • A medium that way too many average skilled beings seem to making a career out of.
  • A painted window into your soul – the good stuff anyway. I’m not sure The Witchdoctor by the Cartoonies counts in this.
  • Something almost indefinable, but can create goosebumps when depicting true emotion.
