Music was his first love: John Miles has died.

The song “Music” was not necessarily universally recognised after its release; too epic, too much drama. Nevertheless, the song wrote music history. The song has strong contrasts, changes of rhythms and actually only few lyrics: “Music was my first love – and it will be my last”. The song speaks more through the music than through the lyrics.

John Miles was working as a studio musician when he recorded this album, on which he played catchy rock music combined with symphonic string sections. In 1976, the album “Rebel” , which contained this song, was released. He did not achieve the resounding sales success of this album again and therefore went back to working in the studio for other musicians..

Music is available in different versions, which we have listed here.
