Ahhh hearing things like this makes me very sad that they became extinct. It seems there was a lot more to the Neanderthal than meets the eye, and it is sad that they may have had a beauty in their culture that we may never know of... and instead are just remembered as crude, almost bestial people.

Well, speculation maybe- but Neanderthahls interbred with homos apiens? If that's the case then I definitely know some really talented singers that have a portion of a beautifully choir-sung Neanderthahl.
