Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?
As a listener, I've never really been one to concentrate on the lyrics - Simply put, if the singer's serenading me with a story about how his girlfriend / wife / significant other kicked him to the curb, leave me out of it. If the lyrics are fresh out of a medical dictionary (like many death metal / grindcore lyrics are), please spare me the experience of losing my lunch.
And so on and so forth...
In my electric violin ensemble this past school year, we didn't have a singer. What our main violin would do was listen to the lyrics in whatever songs we performed and recreate the melody / rhythm of the singer on her violin, so I never had to listen to the lyrics to find a beat.
Then again...what exactly I did last year is something I'm trying to repress! ;)
