Lukas Graham wrote this song in 2015. I heard it for the first time in 2020.

I heard the song 5 years later, yet I could relate to it.

I could hear that song when I'm 60, and I'd be able to relate to it.

What is it about this song or some other song that transcends them over time?

The singer in these songs is simultaneously talking to all versions of you across time. It's as if, a 5-year-old kid is being talked to and a 60-year-old man is triggered - both are the same person. It's that beautiful.

Art is the closest we've come to time travel. The creator is polygamously engaged with each and every person that exists and every person that will exist. Even when we quarrel about monogamy, polygamy is thriving - in this form.

The subtleness of creating an intangible heritage is the greatest creation of man. Everything falls into place after creating it.

That is music.

Is music underrated?


"Impact" is a metric that is consequential. Every person you meet wants to make an impact - for people to see, for people to experience, for people to talk about. The last point that I mentioned, "for people to talk about" - is the most influentially powerful phrase. People want to live for it. That's the measure of its power. Even when you know that death is inevitable, to be able to move forward for something is beyond what words can describe.

That is music.

It gives people a reason to progress, walk ahead, no matter if alone - because in remote of distant future, people will talk about it.

That is music.

There are places in this world that aren't made out of stone. That there's something inside...that they can't get to, that they can't touch. That's yours.

~ Stephen King

Cheers to music!
