The difference between music and a song

We hear someone say “I really like that music” or “I really like that song”. I say those phrases all the time too. 

I’m going to change what I say now because I understand there is a big difference. I’m crediting this understanding to a quote I just read:

“Words make you think thoughts. Music makes you feel a feeling. But a song makes you feel a thought”. Edgar Harburg, Lyricist

Now I understand the power of a favourite song. A song brings thoughts and feelings together. This changes the way l will now listen to music!
