"Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." William Congreve


"Music has charms to soothe a savage breast," spoken by Almeria in Act I, Scene 1. (The word "breast" is often misquoted as "beast".)


The play was called The Mourning Bride [1697], and the quote id from Act 1 Sc1.


The Offspring on "Time to Relax (Intro)" from the Smash album released in 1994.

Ahhhhh, it's time to relax,

And you know what that means,

A glass of wine, your favourite easy chair,

And of course this compact disc playing and your home stereo. So go on, indulge yourself,

That's right, kick off your shoes, put your feet up,

Lean back and just enjoy the melodies.

After all, music soothes even the savage beasts.
