"Alas for those who never sing

but die with all their music in them," 
wrote Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Alas even more for those whose music was squeezed out of them
by an 'education' system.
They sing, if at all,
only other people's music,
usually commercial pop and rock...

But if they/we can squeeze tunes out of the instruments given to them/us, their minds and the physical instruments at their disposal, which is the better those tunes? a non-tune of their own? Silence? Or tune overlaid on top of the noise they make to bury them in self absorption?
