"Music Matters" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim, Maxi Jazz and Cassandra Fox....
For all those who stood up and were counted
For all those for whom money was no motive
For all those for whom music was a message
I want to thank you

For making me
A little more sure
A little more wise
And courageous

You told me to look much further
You told me to walk much more
You told me that music matters
And to chase the dogs back from my door

I won't stop here
I won't be still until the sun sets
On us all

Under the sheets with my radio
Turn down low
So nobody know
It's the late night show
Hopin' to hear Hey Joe
Jimmy was my hero
Head blown by Type are or was it the true star?
From Dali Lama to Tanamo
Curtis Mayfield
Say Kurtis Blow
Singing into my pillow
And praying I don't dose
Until my 9 Volt battery goes

You told me to look much further
You told me to walk much more
You told me that music matters
And to chase the dogs back from my door

I won't stop here
I won't be still until the sun sets
On us all

You told me to look much further
You told me to walk much more
You told me that music matters
And to chase the dogs back from my door

I won't stop here
I won't be still until the sun sets
On us all

You told me that music matters
You told me that music matters
You told me that music matters
You told me that music matters

    General CommentWhen I first got into dance music in 91 i was amazed at the amount of DJ's, groups and producers out there throwing a few beats and samples together and calling it a "Tune". Then along came Faithless who blew everyone away with Insomnia and i haven't looked back since. That tune made the hair on the back of my neck stand up on end and that never really happened again until Faithless bought out this tune Music Matters. Damn right it matters...if music can make someone sit up in their seat, blare the telly up at 11:30 at night with a baby in bed upstairs and start bopping. Or to lift someone up when all in life seems hopeless then i totally believe Music Matters,I think I can safely say that Music Matters is THE one song I would give as the definitive example of how music, whatever the genre, should make a person feel. It is a positive, uplifting, melodical masterpiece that should be framed and held up as a shining example of how to do music properly..Faithless still knocking out great tunes with meaning ,mixing up all their influences on their albums ,and backing them up with great remixes ..a stunning tune.
