    Music is more than protest and socialist music. It is a whole spectrum of different kinds of sounds, lyrics and rhythms. I have been a crate digger and music lover for several years of classical, jazz, opera, latin jazz, and afro cuban music. There is a big world out there.

    Many musical creations were not so intellectually made, some of their composers were simple peoples, and some were peasants who did not have any musical or poetic training and they wrote and composed the best pieces of musics, even more some of them have been sang at many opera houses, philharmonic and concerts.

    The music of Agustin Lara, an assiduous customers of brothels wrote poetic pieces of music which have been interpreted by Pavarotti, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and several other baritones, tenors and soprano

    The London Philharmonic said that the USA did not know that they had at 90 miles from his coast a musical monster like Ernesto Lecuona who was considered the Mozart of Cuba. Most of the Cuban poetic composers were poor and came from a family of peasants and they made beautiful poetic compositions

    Octavio Paz is another good poet, some of his poems became songs. on one of his books he wrote, that an illiterate human being is an intelectual and a cult person because they have history, they have a culture, and they are producers, therefore, intelectual is not the one living on Hegel ivory tower

    Saltwater by Julian Lennon

    From an episode of Top of the Pops, first broadcast on 3rd October 1991:

    We are a rock revolving
    Around a golden sun
    We are a billion children
    Rolled into one…

    Young Master Smeet, copyright for lyrics doesn’t apply to sharing them online. Lyrics are freely available to view on many lyric websites. I copied & pasted the lyrics for the two songs above from Google.

    Would you please re-amend my two posts?

    #247361

    Lyrics are copyright, unless that copyright has been released: being freely available online does not mean that a copyright does not exist, others are bearing the legal jeopardy. You’re best bet is to link to a lyric site, and give a short, pertinent quotation. If you do post the full lyrics, please give a source for it being copyright cleared (i.e. a wikimedia page or similar displaying a creative commons licence).

    Copyright law covers the lyrics and the music and because a song/lyric has been published it does not mean that it does not have any copyright. Copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years

    This song by Cyndi Lauper always reminds me of a similar journey I made a while back. 🙂
