because i read THIS article
can also be found in the june 09 ensign, pg 55

and specifically this quote:
~
"If we could peek behind the heavenly veil,
we would likely be inspired by the music of heaven,
which is probably more glorious than any music we have heard on this earth.
When some music has passed the tests of time and been cherished by the noble and refined,
our failure to appreciate it is not a condemnation of grand music. The omission is within.
If a young person grows up on a steady diet of hamburgers and french fries,
he is not likely to become a gourmet. But the fault is not with fine food.
He just grew up on something less.
Some have grown up on a steady diet of musical french fries.
This would be a good time to sift through your music library
and choose primarily that which uplifts and inspires.
It is part of the maturing process of your eternal journey."
