Prehistoric music can only be theorized based on findings from Paleolithic archaeology sites. Flutes are often discovered, carved from bones in which lateral holes have been pierced; these are thought to have been blown at one end like the Japanese shakuhachi. The Divje Babe flute, carved from a Cave Bear Femur, is thought to be at least 40,000 years old. Instruments, such as the seven-holed flute and various types of stringed instruments have been recovered from the Indus Valley Civilization archaeological sites. India has one of the oldest musical traditions in the world—references to Indian classical music (marga) can be found in the ancient scriptures of the Hindu tradition, the Vedas. The earliest and largest collection of prehistoric musical instruments was found in China and dates back to between 7000 and 6600 BC. The Hurrian song, found on clay tablets that date back to the approximately 1400 BC, is the oldest surviving notated work of music.
Music was an important part of cultural and social life in Ancient Greece: mixed-gender choruses performed for entertainment, celebration and spiritual ceremonies; musicians and singers had a prominent role in ancient Greek theater.

Music for me has always been the thing to influence my mood. Some say that music speaks a language that has no barriers. I think its true because even if one cannot understand the song they can most definitely understand the beats and the music. Music can change a person's mood - it has been proven to. With all the different genres of music out there ranging from rock to classical, one can easily find their niche and fall in love with music. Music is calming, relaxing and more than anything it is just a way of expressing ourselves.

Believe it or not our favorite song says a lot about us, our personality and our taste. Good music and good times are something to look forward too...
