How music affects John Lennon, you & me

'From King David to the longhaired kids stocking the shelves at record stores, why do people find music so intoxicating?' Music has always played a large role in my life. My mom jokes that before I could talk, I could spell thanks to the 70s hit "Saturday Night" by the Bay City Rollers - "S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y... NIGHT!" I bonded with my babysitters over Beatles records. My wife is a musician, and her long blonde hair reminds me of my first memory of music. (Readers be warned: This will sound like I am ripping off Paul Simon lyrics. But this is actually my memory.)I was in my crib. "It was late in the evening. There was a radio coming from the room next door" and I heard my mom laughing. "I couldn't have been no more than 1 or 2..." as the song goes.I have loved music and women with long, blonde hair ever since. I have a huge music collection and go to many shows where thousands like me line up to be part of the excitement.From King David to the longhaired kids stocking the shelves at record stores, why do people find music so intoxicating? In a phone interview May Pang, ex-girlfriend of John Lennon, said she thinks music's appeal is that "it's universal." One listen to the Beatles as a kid, and Pang, too, was hooked.
