    Default All good music comes from religion

    Can you really argue with it?

    From religion is probably a bit determinative but you have many of the same component pieces. Reverence. Awe. Beauty. Sublimity and also sublimation of the libido.

    Sexuality by other means

    "It is a feeling which he (Romain Rolland) would like to call a senaation of 'eternity', a feeling as of something limitless, unbounded - as it were, 'oceanic'."

    I was trying to inveigle a couple of mates into discussing the religious feeling of '70s roots but this is all I got out of them
    "That is a tune! Not too fast, great up tempo vibes. .

    Sent from my iPad"

    Almost wanted to cry

    A typology of various religious tendencies as manifested in music would be possible.

    From pentecostal fervour to ambient retreat to inner sanctum and stillness. The gamut.

    Devotion, not religion.

    I was trying to tempt them with questions like
    What does slowness contribute to the feeling tone of roots? What about horns and the way the horns are deployed?

    I suppose there's some truth to it.

    Take 'Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll by the Blockheads'. On initial listening it's sardonic, brashly of the mortal world. But on closer inspection you uncover a coded religiosity.

    The Holy Trinity: "Sex and drugs and Rock & Roll".

    Salvation "Is all my brain and body need".

    It's a proclamation of faith.
    Alright Si, keep your knickers on.

    Reverence. Devotion. Praise.

    All these things just a breath away from worship.

    Freud rejects the oceanic ("I've never felt it") as the source of religion. He ascribes it to the desire, in a hostile, threatening world, for the protection of the father.
