Look inside. That way lies dancing to the melodies spun out by your own heart."

But then he wondered if Lee would really enjoy it or if he'd find all the horns and accordions and sitars disorienting, if he'd be turned off by the lunatic mix of styles, rock jams turning into English pub sing-alongs turning into mellow jazz. He'd probably want something easier to digest, a collection of clear, catchy melodies, something recognizable as rock 'n' roll. The White Album, then.

In her wake flowers shoot forth, a dance bursts out, harmonies awaken, and choirs of devils, nymphs, satyrs, spirits, country maidens, angels, and shepherds dance, shake tambourines gesticulate wildly, and lay tribute at the goddess's feet."
