I believe that Erykah Badu 's quote isn 't just limited to hip-hop, it 's relatable to all music. The reason why I feel this way is because music is something that connects us all. Even if the genres are different, it 's still music. It affects our everyday lives and is everywhere we go. It bonds humans together. We have had music throughout history, and it has changed yet stayed the same. What I mean by this is that even though music is constantly evolving and has throughout history, its always been there.

People of the Middle Ages would wear tunics “made of a long rectangle [piece] of wool with a hole in the center for the head and crude stitching at the sides” accompanied by an under-tunic and a heavier over-tunic (Pendergast). But then, in the early 1300s, clothing became "straightforward and practical, appropriate to rank, adding distinction through color and fabric quality rather than cut and tailoring." But then around the late 1330s, the clothing started to change. Everything soon depended on how the sleeves of the fabric are cut. People would have certain restrictions depending on their status. A lord was given the freedom to wear anything, and no constraints. Knights had freedom of clothing depending on how much their land was worth. A knight with land worth 400 marks has a few limitations, but may dress as they will, while a knight with land worth 200 marks has many restraints. Correspondingly, as people continue down the line of rank, they get more and more regulations. The royal families also have absolutely no restriction as to what to wear (Mortimer). Obviously, a cultural phase from the Middle Ages is clothing.

Each town also had their own band called waits. Waits normally played wind instruments like the shawm. Street music was often scorned as they were often beggars.

Trouveres however, were more developed and were often asked by noblemen to play. Theatre music, another style, was not big until William Shakespeare used it in his plays. People enjoyed theatre music to where it would be odd not to hear music during a play. (Elizabethan Era Music Types of

Music can bring the brightest of joys that keeps us moving through our dull and boring lives. An example of this joy is Ishmael Beah’s life as a boy soldier in his book A Long Way Gone. As he tells you his story, he tells of his dance group with his friends, the times he heard music in the middle of war, and how music saved him from the madness that brewed within him.
