Oui c'est vrai
If the term "universal language" means that everyone can understand it, then music is NOT a universal language. There are things in Chinese music that I seriously do not understand.
However, if you want the term to mean that we can all feel something when we hear music, or that music touches everyone's "soul" in some way or another, then carry on, flower child.
we all have a heartbeat... music starts there... with the beat.... we walk with a steady rhythmic beat... etc,,
even if you hear a strange melody/scale ... you get the beat usually...
that's where music gets universal.. banging a stick on hollow log and using simple repeated vocal chants...
not words and languages use with the "music"...
I thought love was the universal language .
We have the winner!
I'm with Jman on this one...
Universal or not -- whatever that means -- I still think it was a good idea music was included on the Voyager Golden Record.
And football. I remember being on holiday in Croatia one year and trying to have a conversation with a local guy...he didn't know any English and I knew no Serbo-Croat, but somehow he managed to convey meaning by saying "Aston Villa...Liverpool...Manchester United..."
Just don't try and speak it in the US. Nobody will know what you're talking about
This same is true for speaking with a Glaswegian accent.
This recent story points out the positive power of music. There's something about a crowd of people, singing together.
Music is not The Universal language...it is A Universal language. There can be no doubt.
