It's entirely possible, because music is one of the few things in this world that get's the attention of most people. Often, listening to what is
going on in the background is just as important as the lyrics (several songs come to mind where the lyrics are calm, peaceful, and serene; listen to
the noise in the background, and it paints a different picture). I wish I could find a non-poetical example, but there is a "style" of music that
takes two completely different songs, and merges them together into one song - Song A's lyrics blend into Song B's, but each are their own story.
Don't know what it's called off the top of my head, but imagine - Song A is about rising up, being a nonconformist, and Song B is about bowing down,
obeying society, being "one of us" (hang on, I better copyright this before someone steals my idea).
As another musician (brass player), I can tell you this: I'm telling a story with what I play. In a sense, all of the music that I do is one big
hidden message. When the melodies soar, I'm expressing the joy and happiness when times are great, and when they lament, the not so happy. When I
bring you to tears, it's not because the playing is bad, but because you are feeling the pain that I felt when the event happened, or the love that
occurred from some small action that was done. However, most people that have heard me play see it as music, and nothing more. If you're connecting
with the listener, then I'd classify that as subliminal.
