I had been trying to get my friend Mike-a rock’ n roll fan-interested in classical music. When I offered to purchase tickets to a Mozart festival, he willingly agreed to accompany me and seemed to enjoy the symphony.

Mike nodded his head in solemn agreement. “Yes,” he said. “I know what you mean.”
Feeling very pleased that I had made a “convert”, I asked what he felt the music was saying to him.
He replied, “it said ‘go to sleep, Michael. Go to sleep.
