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

I admire people who dare to take the language, English, and understand it and understand the melody.
Maya Angelou

The world is never quiet, even its silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those that we perceive, they carry sounds to us, occasionally a chord, never a melody.
Albert Camus

Music is the melody whose text is the world.
Arthur Schopenhauer

They were singing in French, but the melody was freedom and any American could understand that.
Audie Murphy

I've always been a fan of melody and emotional melancholy, whether it was Rites of Spring or Tears for Fears or Neil Young. If I hear a song that has a sweet melody, I'm a sucker for it, whether it's Linkin Park or Little Richard.
Dave Grohl
