Fandango’s Provocative Question #53

FPQWelcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.

By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.

What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.

My provocative question today has to do with music. I chose to ask this question for two reasons. First, many of us respond to music prompts on WordPress. Prompts like Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday, Laura Venturini’s Weekly Song Challenge, and Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, which always features some song lyrics. These music related prompts are very popular.

Second, one of the great debates in the blogosphere at this time of year has to do with Christmas music. Some love it, some hate it, and others can take it or leave it.

So the question today is this:

Do you consider music to be a “universal language” that transcends national borders and resonates across different cultures? Why or why not?

If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

    Music has been very important to me throughout my life Fandango. It has no age barriers or gender yet can convey emotions to all. Even music some of us don’t like has its own language to others.
