    Very, without meaningful lyrics a song is just noise.

    It depends what sort of song they are to be fair, some not at all and some all important
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    The words are important. It's even more important that the listener be left to interpret for themselves, what those words mean.

    IMO that is what causes us to make a song 'ours'.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    To me, it's all about the rhythm, beat and pace. The lyrics themselves are secondary!

    The music is most important, than the lyrics.

    There is wonderful music without words, there is even wonderful music that uses the human voice as an instrument but to be a great song the lyrics are all important.
