Saturday - music quote

"Music is a higher revelation than philosophy."

I'm not really sure if I'm understanding this right, but to me this means that music is IT, man. I know I can get a hell of a lot more out of playing the riff from "Whole Lotta Love" than I can reading some book about the meaning of life. The right song (or melody, if I'm gonna get fancy) can really affect you, and sometimes if I'm high enough and the music's awesome enough, I swear I can see God or whoever the hell is running this show. Sounds weird, I know, and if you don't get it, I guess I can't explain it. All I know is when you live in a shitty little town and you don't have many options for what to do with your life, music's one of the best ways to escape the gray and feel like you're alive.
