Former Moody Blues singer Mike Pinder sings of the silver cord in his solo album Among The Stars with the lyric "All aboard, the silver cord, the tour's about to start. See the famous asteroids and a thousand million stars."
In Jethro Tull's A Passion Play, the lyrics "the silver cord lies on the ground" are used to indicate the death of someone observing his own funeral.

Famous quotes containing the words culture and/or popular:
“A culture may be conceived as a network of beliefs and purposes in which any string in the net pulls and is pulled by the others, thus perpetually changing the configuration of the whole. If the cultural element called morals takes on a new shape, we must ask what other strings have pulled it out of line. It cannot be one solitary string, nor even the strings nearby, for the network is three-dimensional at least.”
—Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)
“Parents ability to survive a childs unabating needs, wants, and demands...varies enormously. Some people can give and give....Whether children are good or bad, brilliant or just about normal, enormously popular or born loners, they keep their cool and say just the right thing at all times...even when they are miserable themselves, inexhaustible springs of emotional energy, reserved just for children, keep flowing unabated.”
—Stella Chess (20th century)
