Always Go To Poe

July 19, 2008

With all the new artists I have been listening to over the last week, Peter Murphy’s post with this Poe quote is very well timed…

“When music affects us to tears, seemingly causeless, we weep not from ‘excess of pleasure’; but through excess of an impatient, perpetual sorrow that, as mere mortals, we are as yet in no condition to banquet upon those supernal ecstasies of which the music affords us merely a suggestive and indefinite glimpse.”

Edgar Allan Poe
