Communing with the Spirits
Ambient music is good for that. Listening to the muses. Music. Amusing. The Muse. Spirits.
My favourite amusing lyrics from pop music:
"Nothing came easy, nothing came free, nothing came at all until they... came after me!" - hmmm, then something came alright.
"What I choose... is my choice!" - haha, for a moment there, I thought I was actually getting something - Oh, I dunno, a pearl of wisdom, or something like that.
In a sense, when you appreciate the work of artists and composers who have passed away, you are communing with their spirits.
(lyrics from Alice Cooper and, I think, Smashing Pumpkins respectively)
