You can cage the singer but not the song. (Harry Belafonte, 20th century pops singer)
Music has a way of outlasting its composer, singer, or artist. Tunes and lyrics may remain in our minds or be recalled at odd moments far removed from when they were popular. That’s why music is such a powerful art. Long after a composer or performer is gone, the melody and lyrics linger on.
[Be] singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts (Ephesians 5:19).
