Well, I'm surprised anyone could feel the way you do. So I guess we balance out!
But if it wasn't for the lyrics, my CD collection would be a fraction of the size it is.
Don't get me wrong, I like some instrumental music, and I like many instrumental passages, and I have plenty of music that has bad/cheesy lyrics too, I even have some stuff that is not in English (i.e. the only language I understand), but good lyrics are the reason I got into so many bands I hold dear to my heart.
I can not fathom how anyone can NOT be into lyrics. It's incomprehensible to me.
