It may be something that you heard yesterday on the radio, it might be music that you downloaded from the Internet, it might be a catchy jingle from a television ad, or it might even be something that you composed yourself. As soon as you start humming, singing, or whistling, you are performing a melody.

    “It’s better to burn out than to fade away.” (Cross, 309) Kurt Cobain said this in his last moments of life to his wife Courtney Love.
