“Without music, life would be a mistake.”¯ Friedrich Nietzsche
Music has been embedded in our daily life, since the beginning of time. It seeps into human civilization and till date there has been no substitute of music. Its subtler shades can display much more emotive force than the spoken word. Whether you are running across the park or working on an assignment, listening to some music can make any task a lot easier and fun.
These days, it has become rather easier to get ahold of music, thanks to the technology innovations. Today there is no need to download music on your desktop computer before transferring them to your mobile phones.
