Once you get everything out of your head about what everybody else is going to think, will radio play it - and I hope they do, I really do - once you shed all of that and just be who you are, that's who I am. That's taken a lot of growing up. I've come into myself musically and as a woman, and I hope to keep growing. If you don't grow, you die.
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.
My thinking musically has always been more advanced - it is difficult to get it down onto paper sometimes, even now.
I try to tell a story musically in a song.
The first time I performed musically, I threw up.
We're five people, five individuals who came together to create something, to make music and to complete each other musically, to form a perfect circle.
Maynard James Keenan
Zappa was very technical and impressed by things that were musically challenging - weird time signatures, strange keys, awkward chord sequences. Zappa was important to me as an example of everything I didn't want to do. I'm very grateful to him, actually.
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.
England in the '60s and the '70s was everything that history has said; it was phenomenally exciting, musically.
Everybody on our cast is very musically talented, except for me.
I love stretching myself musically.
I'm lyrically driven, I'm not musically driven.
For better or worse, I've always been curious musically. Whether it's opera or Judy Garland or pop, I've deliberately sought those things out. I've never wanted to do the same things over and over. Some think I've accomplished what I set out to do, and others consider me a dilettante.
I would say that as I've gotten older, I trust my intuition more; I allow myself more freedom both musically, creatively and my own life existentially.
The only time I ever really got into rap was back in the early '90s, and bands like A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Gang Starr. Musically, they were really interesting. But when hip-hop acts start sampling Sting or Phil Collins, then I just don't get it at all.
Right now, musically I'm inspired by everyday people.
Whenever I start to really think about what I'm playing, I may play it better musically, but the feeling isn't there.
I've made a lot of mistakes in my life. I wouldn't say musically, though.
Musically, there's a movement called the flatted fifth that's really evil-sounding. It was outlawed by the Catholic Church during the Middle Ages. That movement is what gives you a real evil sound that conjures up dark, fantastic images. It's like an audio horror movie. It personifies what a horror movie is about.
Even though I know who I am, musically I'm a blank canvas. I know what colors I want to use, but I don't know what picture I want to paint yet.
I saw Mercury Prize-winners Alt-J for the first time recently, touring their debut album 'An Awesome Wave,' and I'm still riding the high: they're the most musically dynamic and exciting band to have poured tune into my lug holes live since Bellowhead.
I may never get my own action figure, but at least I think what I'm doing is really legitimate musically.
So I've never found there was any particular separation between the two cultures at all, musically speaking.
I really haven't strayed too far, musically, from my roots.
Somalis really are very musically sophisticated, and they're about their own thing.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
C. S. Lewis
