    True because the emotion is in the music and can put it over better than words can, I can't stand modern jazz either but then maybe itls like rap in that if I spent some time trying t understand it I might appreciate it more.

    If you need to understand it to appreciate it..............it's not doing what it's supposed to do.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Maybe I'm strange but I use a different part of my brain when listening to the underlying music than I do when listening to the lyrics. There are some songs that I have liked and later taken the time to closely listen to the lyrics and then was very disappointed. And then there are the songs that are catchy tunes with completely inane lyrics.

    Hello jormlet! Enjoy your visits with us.

    If you are talking about a song per say......lyrics are very important. The words along with the music that accompany it set the mood and send the messege. But there is indeed music that is beautiful without words.

    I listen to the overall hooks, I like a nice melody best, I think. But I'll say this...I despise music where I can't understand the lyrics at all.

    Re: How important to you are lyrics when listening to a song?

    I think that lyrics count...to an extent. I mean, if I listen to the radio, obviously I'm not expecting Aristotle or the Divine Comedy, but sometimes I demand something that makes me think. Like, I really love songs that tell a story, but only enough so that I have to formulate my own conclusion. For example "Hank Williams Sr. -Alone and Forsaken". And I'm not even a country music fan.

    Lyrics are very important to me. Some beautiful lyrics can create wonders to it's fans. I specially notice lyrics of the songs while listening of any song.

    Hi jormlet, i feel lyrics are equally important like music when you are listning to something. music gives us joy whereas lyrics gives feeling to that thing.

    Well, some lyrics just catch me and really make the song better. Especially a lot of lyrics from 1970s songs, since they are easier for me to understand. But usually, I like a song for it's melody and beat, even if the lyrics don't make a lot of sense to me.

    One thing though...I don't stand for any lyrics that contain profanity or blasphemy. The world's got enough trouble already and that's not what I listen to music for.
