Lyrics vs. Instrumentals

Post by Cloudwilk » Wed Jul 01, 2015 4:27 pm

I've noticed I greatly prefer songs with lyrics vs. instrumentals. I suppose it's because I like the poetic aspect behind lyrics... honestly, that's part of what can make or break a song with me!

I find the same thing. I actually write my own music (I'm actually writing a song about the wolf for camp next week and it deals with the same concept as the animation. That was just chance) so the lyrical aspect is something I really admire. A lot of people hate interpreting poetry but they like analyzing the songs they like. It's sad how people don't understand that their free time music in most cases is very poetic and potentially educational.

That reminds me, I should post one of my songs sometime.

I enjoy both lyrical and instrumental, it just depends on the circumstances. As far as lyrical, I love classic rock (Billy Joel, Elton John, basically anything with piano or strong guitar), and my instrumental varies from soundtracks to just singles I find randomly on Youtube XD
This is not the inker you are looking for.

Depends for me, mostly on whether I need something in background to help me focus or if I want to actually sit and listen to the music. I sleep with music from the Solitudes collection playing -- so not only instrumental, but wildlife sounds out there.
Zib, go suffer for your art.

I'd like to read what you wrote! Maybe I'll post my poetry :cheese:


Right now, one of my favorite songs is American Pie.... I'm just in love with the lyrics...
Ambience and instrumentals work better for me if I'm not supposed to be paying attention to the music... like, if I'm studying.
