Do you think lyrics are the most important part of a song?

Asked by: CCLemon
  • Yes, i agree

    Because if you don't know the meaning of the song that basically consist in words, you don't feel totally thoughts, emotions and feelings of the song. Almost you might not like the song but if you listen to the words you can relive their own meaning of life. But, the melody also has a great influence on the emotional state of man. Sometimes, namely music brings man to life, reminds him of certain things, changes its attitude. But, there are some cases in which the person does not understand the language in which the lyrics are written, so the only way to reflect on the song, to introduce you in the mood , it appears to be the melody, the song itself.

  • Although I love all aspects of songs.. Lyrics are the message

    The lyrics are what speak to you, what pulls you. In.. I'm not saying that they're not good songs w/o lyrics.. But whether or not I like a song with lyrics is going to depend on the message and lyrics.. Not saying vocal talent and rhythm aren't also a factor on whether or not I like a song.. Just saying if I don't like the lyrics.. I donor like the song

  • Lyrics are the message.

    Though other parts of the music may give the general feeling or tone of a song, i.E., light and happy, or dark and ominous, the whole purpose of lyrics is the message itself. If the lyrics don't provide some form of message then they might as well be either in a language you don't understand or not exist at all. Though the music part of a song may be totally subjective as not all people enjoy the same type, i.E., country, metal etc, many songs have been redone to fit those other tastes.
    Though having songs about nothing can become popular, what is sad is when the lyrics are sang in such a manor that it really does not matter what they say. Some songs have so much other sound from the instruments that you can't really hear what they are about, other songs have the lyrics so fast that you can only make out a word here and there. There are also songs that use such poor pronunciations that misunderstanding what is said is common. Personally, I feel that there is no point in making the effort of writing lyrics if few if any actually know what they are.

  • Lyrics can be overpowering

    I think there can be alot of divide on this question, and that can vary with everyone's taste in music. Pop music puts more of an emphasis on melodies and song-structure, where-as the lyrics don't mean all that much; same goes with instrumental jazz and some rock music. But there are songs that put a huge emphasis on lyrical structure, and there are some amazing singer-songwriters out there. In some cases, I think that it some cases it can go hand-in-hand. If a song sounds good and it has stellar lyrics, I certainly will enjoy it. Others are more into the distinct voice, and that can also play a role in some cases, maybe more so with popular hit music.

  • The way it sounds is more important.

    It may sound weird, but humans often look past what's being said and just listen to the sound. A lot of people don't know how vulgar "Rock you like a hurricane" really is, but they still like the song. A personal experience is a Christmas song my family was listening to. The lyrics were about joy and happiness but the song just really sounded sad. It brought the mood down regardless of the message the artist really wanted to send.

  • Melody and overall feel are most important to me

    The way I listen to music (which may well be similar to many other people) , the first time I hear a song would be via streaming and/or on the radio. On first listen, I only pick up a small part of the lyrics. I tune into the melody and feel; and this determines if I like the song enough to continue with it. If the melody/feel are are likeable enough I would listen to the song more than once, and eventually I may discover what the lyrics are about. But knowing what the lyrics mean has NO bearing on the extent to which to I like the song. I mean, my favourite song of all time is Gimmie Shelter by the Stones - and you can't even hear the lyric.

    I think this may work differently in different styles of songs. For example, in Country and Western and Folk songs, where the melodies can often be fairly routine (ie: similar melodies between different songs, minimal and simple chords - so you've kind of heard it before), I can understand why some people would focus on lyrics - because the melodic part is less interesting.

  • Songs need a tune, not necessarily lyrics

    Lyrics are definitely important, but the tune, beat, instrumentation, etc., carry the soul of the song. Of course, as with most debates regarding art, this is subjective. I would bet the Yes side of this debate is really into Bob Dylan. Me, not so much. He can write good lyrics, but his voice isn't so nice.

  • Listening foreign songs

    I like to listen to songs sung in foreign language i dont speak. I dont understand the lyrics but i like melody so i like the song only because it sounds good. Being a teenager i really liked Katty Perry song I liked a girl, i was singing it, though only now i realize what it means, still i like that song))
