Definition of Melody

Melody

  1. A sweet or agreeable succession of sounds.
  2. A rhythmical succession of single tones, ranging for the most part within a given key, and so related together as to form a musical whole, having the unity of what is technically called a musical thought, at once pleasing to the ear and characteristic in expression.
  3. The air or tune of a musical piece.

Melody Quotations

The only thing that I miss lately in all music is somebody that will put out a melody that you can whistle. It doesn't seem like there's anything happening like that.
Merle Haggard

The principle of the endless melody is the perpetual becoming of a music that never had any reason for starting, any more than it has any reason for ending.
Igor Stravinsky

Doing the instrumental thing, you're really looking for the power of the melody to carry the record.
Michael W. Smith

I realised a long time ago that instrumental music speaks a lot more clearly than English, Spanish, Yiddish, Swahili, any other language. Pure melody goes outside time.
Carlos Santana

Great melody over great riffs is, to me, the secret of it all.
Steven Tyler
