Good Quotation

In part of my studies for my vocal coach, I was looking up various renditions on youtube of the aria "Nessun Dorma". As I sifted through each, I began reading the comments, and many of them were vile. Everyone, it seems, has their favourite version, their favourite singer, and they feel compelled to explain how ever other version and singer is wrong, or does not measure up to their favourite, and everyone who disagrees with them is stupid.

In the middle of this was one ironic comment with which I fully and wholeheartedly agree. The commenter wrote: "In all the world there are only a few people who can sing this song, but millions who can tell them how they are doing it wrong." Absolutely.
