In their music, they discuss universal themes such as heartbreak and the pursuit of happiness. 

If you want to connect with a large group of people (i.e. writing and delivering a speech), interweave universal themes into your writing.

Love, power, greed, sadness, and compassion are all emotions we connect with.
