The title is a quote made by the music conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, which is on location in Pyongyang, North Korea. I watched transfixed as they played "The Star Spangled Banner" flanked by the North Korean flag on one side of the stage and the United States flag on the other side of the stage.
There was a mix in the audience of North Korean dignitaries and Americans, and the orchestra was a mix of different nationalities also with some displaying Asian charatersisitcs who are Americans for the North Koreans to see.
Lenny Kravitz is on tour now. He is starting a "Love Revolution" through his music because he says as we all know it's what the world needs now more than ever "Love, Love, Love." I couldn't agree more.
If people would just turn on their radios during rush hour or during traffic "jams" and jam it out maybe it would reduce traffic accidents/fatalities and road rage. I have mine on all the time and my babes in the back seat tell me to "turn it up" if I happen to turn it down. Here we go "bumping" pleasantly down the street, and when the beach weather's nice the window's are rolled down, and the sun roof is open. We recieve wierd stares as we sometimes are dancing and/or singing, but hey "Music saved my life." Lighten up people. You only live once. Have Patience! Relax and enjoy the ride of life because there's only one!
Music transcends all things and brings people together, so let's make more music so we can make less war. "We are here to make music"
