Beautiful Gibberish

I am a english-speaking american who only minutely understands spanish and french. Yet, I listen to every type of music you can think of. I listen to German, Italian, Spanish, Scandinavian, and Japanese. People aske me all the time, "Why do you listen to music you can't understand?" My answer is simple, I can understand it. I may not know the words or be aibled to speak the language but, I can feel it. Music doesn't have a barrier like other forms of communication. You can feel the heart- wrenching melody of a ballad or the pent up fury of a rock song even if it's not in a language that you understand. Music is... universal. Without music I would be lost. Music makes you feel rebellious, peaceful, religious, and extraordinary. Music is life.

This will certify that the above work is completely original.
