Songs from the Heart at Zorro's Tavern

It was a warm hearted evening at Zorro's Tavern tonight as dj Brain played some awesome 'heart' themed tunes!  Everyone loves a romantic song and Brain found a great collection to set the mood.  Catriona was doing a fantastic job of hosting in Rob's very popular Tavern.  The theme  got me wondering when the first tune in the world was written, and apparently it was called The Hymn for Nikkal written in ancient Syria dating back to 1400 BC. Nikkal was the Akkadian goddess of orchards. The hymn was inscribed on clay tablets around 3,500 years ago.  I wonder how many of our love songs will be remembered 3,500 years from now! We may have gone full circle by then and be writing our stuff on clay tablets again! Make the most of those DVDs and vinyl records!
