EDIT: I looked a little before making this thread, but apparently not enough. There are already some threads with a similar poll.
How much attention do you pay to music lyrics?
Which captivates you more: Lyrics or Instrumentals?
Mine is still a little different, but mine is basically just a duplicate.
ORIGINAL POST: I want to see if there is a trend between certain types on whether they care more about the lyrics or the actual sound of a song.
I can't say I don't care about lyrics at all, but typically, they matter very little. The voice is usually just another instrument. I love instrumental music and music in other languages. I usually can't understand what is being said in English songs, but I usually don't care anyways. But I still like songs in English as well.
Even if I can understand the lyrics, I usually don't feel any attachment to them. Sometimes I may, but the reason I listen is for the sound of the song. But on the other hand, if there is profanity or something else bad in a song, it tends to stick out in my mind more. I will probably still listen if I like the song though. I usually only stop listening/skip part of a song if it is filled with bad stuff.
I have two main uses for music: 1) when I am partaking in activities, such as using the forums or reading something, 2) or it serves as fuel for my imagination.
