IMPORTANT MUSIC

 

This is a small selection of some of the great musicians of Society plus music that isn't so good yet is Socially significant and worth listening to at least once for the experience.  There's barely anything C21 because the author had stopped listening to the new music of Society by then.  It includes Christian, Muslim, Tibetan Buddhist and Rastafarian music which has an immense energy within Society for they are immense Societal sub-groups of great belief.  It also includes Classical music which is very old and upper class and as such has an immense energy within Western Society.  These energies impart great emotion.
