This was one of the first songs that taught me that even sadness, melancholy, and suffering could be turned into something truly beautiful. That in art, nothing is wasted and that we can find something moving and transformative even in our darkest places. I would often approach music from a much colder, logical perspective, but this song, and many like it, taught me that music can reach down even into the very core of your being and find things within you that you maybe didn’t even realize were there. Music continues to be the language that most fully encapsulates the organized perfection of mathematics and physics, while expressing the poetry and evocation of art.
