Default Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?

As far as songs I listen to on my own time, I like music with any lyrics I can relate to. If I hear a song, and reminds me of myself, if it's politically charged. But most of fall, if I hear a song, and it triggers my mind to think of a certain time in my life, then it's probably a hit in my book.

As far as music I play, I can't read music or tabs. So for me the song writing process consists of matching a drum beat with the bass rhythm. And then as I go and memorize the song I'll do fills and such. For the simpler songs, this often means I have to listen to the lyrics to know where certain parts are.
