Default Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?

It really depends on the music I'm listening to.

For instance: if I'm listening to Yes (like I am now) I really don't listen to lyrics. I hear them, I learn them, but I don't think about what they are saying (with a few exceptions). I guess I'm just so overwhelmed with the instrumentals and harmonies that trying to decipher metaphorical puzzles just seems unimportant.

The Who, on the other hand, has lyrics that I can cling to a lot more. The songs just perfectly support the lyrics.

Rush is one of the only bands I can think of that I love the music and lyrics equally.
