Currently I'm not in the way for these soft songs. I like her regular conversation talk vernacular :) Many songs don't do it often so it's nice to hear it every now and then. ITs not super rare but it's not in every song... ever 1 in 3 there might be some from my experience.
I'm more into pop and rock right now :)
FINALLU!!! My peep!! I sometimes might look it up, but I barely ever listen to the lyrics, as long as it sounds good really does it make the list. Sounding good can be anything really but ....you know :)
I don't even know what 99.9% of my English songs are about and if you asked me what "X" song talked about.. I woudl look at the title and artist....and make some stupid thing up right there hahah!! :)
I'm just going to put it this way. Words are a means to contort the human voice. The syllables and phrasing are what is key to making the vocals work, not necessarily the words themselves. The way those are used and sounded out through the vocal instrument is what leads me to like how the singer works with the music and gives the piece and the singer their very own signature sound. Just like people listen to a particular player of an instrument like Louis Armstrong, Lang Lang, or Yo Yo Ma, I like how certain people sound. And when I'm listening to the vocalist, I care for not what they are speaking about, but how it's expressed through the core of the words. That to me is a means to feeling the music and what it's all about. The words themselves are just guides to help lead you to the song. Now for the person performing, the words should mean all the world to them, that should be unmistakable, but as a singer myself, I have grown to learn that it is not what is being said, but how you say it. When people like to crack on things like "Crawwwwling in my skiiiiiiiiin" for being stupid lyrics, I just know I can't agree with them on most things from there on out. The song Crawling isn't expressed by the simple(and somewhat "emo" lol) lyrics that they gave, it's through those consonants and vowels that express the frustration, annoyance, and pain of something that can be emotionally impactful to a person. How the word crawling and skin are used to give that feeling of digging into one's conscious is what I feel among the rest of the music, not necessarily the corny ass lyrics.
Now I can appreciate some good lyrics and in rap/hip hop, my opinion flips because the lyrics are core to the genre and how it works. Even then, by principal rapping is just like singing so the vibe and flow of the rapper himself is just as important as to what they are saying. But at the end of the day, the human voice is just another part of the multifaceted part of the tracks I listen to and I think of it as an instrument and not the words it speaks. If I like a song enough, I may look up the lyrics but you know what? I can't understand half of what Michael Jackson says half the time and he's still my favorite artist. That speaks volumes to what I've been discussing and sends the point home.
