Check out this clip from Louis CK.  He hits right on why I love music.  If you don't believe him, I'm putting up a link to the song he talks about.

Here's a live version from 2001 of the song he talks about.  If you listen to the whole thing, you can catch the late Clarence Clemmons (aka, The Big Man) with a totally kick ass sax solo that is as good a something as there is on the planet.
