Not exactly bird music, more a flying feathered public address system....

Actually,  it has been "explained" in the sense of making an adaptive story (tho not experimentally verified).  Louder sounds attract some female birds (and similarly frogs), and can repel competitor males, presumably enhancing mating success of the male.  It is not alway to the adv. of the male to have  mated female able to hear other males either...

 

In other species, call complexity is more important.  In fact, one anthropologists and psychologists learned about biology they began to speculate on human art as being essentially mate advertising.  There are some suggestive correlates, including age of greatest output being related to ages most likely to breed, etc. etc.

 

Also, some birds seem to prefer vinyl...

The last song from the new L.Cohen album 'Thanks for the Dance'.

It helps men to rise above themselves.

Nope - feathers are superior.  Same for bird lungs & likely brains.

 

It pays to pick your stem reptiles carefully...

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill
He sounds too blue to fly...

 

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die
That means he's lost the will to live
I'm so lonesome I could cry
