What's more important to you, sound or the lyrics?
For me it's the sound, absolutely no contest. When I listen to music the singer is just another instrument, albeit a crucial and often pivotal one. However they could be singing about cat food for all I care, as long as I'm digging the rhythm and the melodies and the ambiance. I assumed it was probably the same for everyone, but some people I've asked have said that lyrics are actually the most important part of song for their tastes. A lot of the time I don't even pay attention much attention to lyrics. There are exceptions, like Bob Dylan, where I'm totally drawn in. Anyway, what say you?
