    Very, without meaningful lyrics a song is just noise.

    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.

    You are so right -----there is a difference between a song & music and a good song requires good lyrics.

    Pedantic I know but I do see them as different pleasures - you have music and you have poetry with song combining the two

    hi there i'm new in this site.. its good to be here with you guys..

    i love music it complete my days when i'm at work or in the house.. lyrics is just a secondary to the song..music is important cause you can still feel the rhythm even without knowing the lyrics, if you would love to hear it...

    but for me really is both.. must good if there is a 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.

    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.
