Strangely fascinating and perplexing is the amazing realization that again and again their very profound words and their hauntingly enchanting melodic expressions are so obviously revealing a bizarre unearthly origin for our popular music and so we must wonder by who or what is telepathically channeling this and from where is it arriving and why?!
And so here are several quotes by various musical geniuses and some of their world famous songs throughout the modern musical ages chronologically listed and imaged below...
John Philip Sousa - 1896 - The Stars And Stripes Forever > http://musiced.about.com/od/fourthofjuly...tripes.htm
Quote: This song was written by John Philip Sousa while he was on board a ship called the Teutonic.
At the time, he was contemplating the death of his band manager, David Blakely and the daunting tasks that awaits him upon his return to New York.
In his own words, "Suddenly i began to sense a rhythmic beat of a band playing within my brain" - John Philip Sousa.
As they reached shore, John Philip Sousa began to write the march persistently playing in his head, completing it on Christmas Day 1896.
Tommy Dorsey - 1935 - I'm Getting Sentimental Over You > http://thinkexist.com/quotes/thomas_a._dorsey/
Quote: Tommy Dorsey quoted as saying “I sat down at the piano and my hands began to browse over the keys and then something happened"
"I felt as though i could reach out and touch God"
"I found myself playing a melody, one i'd never heard or played before and words came into my head, they just seemed to fall into place"
Noel Paul Stookey - 1971 - The Wedding Song (There Is Love) > http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=8313
Quote: Paul Stookey's name does not appear as the author either on the record or the sheet music and neither does he receive any of the royalties.
That is because he says that after he prayed he was "given" the song, all he was required to do was to "allow the pencil to move across the page"
According to Stookey "the melody and the words arrived simultaneously and in response to a direct prayer asking God how the divine could be present"
Led Zeppelin - 1971 - Stairway To Heaven > http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=328
Quote: The lyrics came to Robert Plant in a flash of inspiration when he and Jimmy Page were sitting by the fireplace at Headley Grange with Page strumming the intro chords.
Said Robert Plant "I was holding a pencil and paper, and for some reason i was in a very bad mood. Then all of a sudden my hand was writing out the words, "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold and she's buying a stairway to heaven" and I just sat there and looked at the words and then i almost leapt out of my seat"
Robert Plants implication that something else was moving his pencil for him led to speculation that it was Satan who was dictating the words, and along with the backward messages and Page's Aleister Crowley connection, there was enough evidence for many listeners that the Devil had some role in creating this song.
Kitaro - 1987 - Sundance > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitar%C5%8D
Quote: When asked about his music, Kitaro said, "I never had education in music, i just learned to trust my ears and my feelings"
He credits "Powers beyond himself" for his music saying, "This music is not from my mind, it is from Heaven, going through my body and out my fingers through composing"
"Sometimes i wonder, i never practice, i don't read or write music, but my fingers move, i wonder, whose song is this? i write my songs, but they are not my songs"
