Music and Songs
Music accompanies us everywhere. Small children hear their mothers' songs when they put them to bed. We hear the music of birds in the gardens and woods. We listen to music on the radio and TV and cassette recorders.
It's difficult to speak about music in general, because it will either take a lot of time or just one sentence to explain our attitude. Music is an integral part of our life. It is varied because it reflects different human emotions. If we ask several people what kind of music they like, all of them will give different answers, Tastes differ. But the world of music is boundless and everybody can find there something that satisfies his tastes and demands. We enjoy music because it influences our mood and imagination, reflects our inner state and character, arouses deep emotions and makes us think. It helps us to remove from tiredness and tension or find new strength, get new energy and optimism. That's why I prefer songs.
There are many strong, local traditions of music in Britain today. London, like all the great cities of Britain, has a long tradition of classical music. The concert halls and opera-houses give performances every night. In recent years there has been a great revival of folk-music. In Scotland the most popular national instrument is the bagpipe, and every town has a pipe band. In many towns there are brass bands. The bands have an annual competition and Britain's best classical composers write music specially for them. The best choral music can be found in Wales. The Welsh have always been famous for their singing.
The most successful group the world has ever known was the Beatles. The four young musicians and singers from Liverpool were John Lennon, Paul McCarthy, George Harrison and Ringo Star. Many fans still love their songs and long for the music of the sixties. We enjoy using some of them and singing them.
