Here's a question I haven't seen others get into. When you listen to a song, with or without singing, do you just listen to it for its sound (which I often do which I think makes me an audiophile) or do you keenly listen for the words, or it depends?

PhilX 🇺🇸
I was forced to, for the first twenty years of my life, when I was most perceptive to musical tastes and directions. All the music I listened to, all the songs, were sung in English, and I hadn't been speaking a word of it. "Yes", "no" and "okay" were the extent of my knowledge then. So really had to rely on the music side of songs for enjoyment.

That's why I never liked songs like "Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter", or "Mrs. Robinson", this latter of course by Simon and Garfunkel.

Only recently (in the last twenty years or so) have I been paying attention to lyrics. The most outstanding examples of deeply moving lyrics are, in my opion, by Bob Dylan. Little wonder he got the Nobel prize in literature. He fully deserved it, too, if you ask me.

The funny part is, that he did not even need to make sense to get to you with his words. Take, for instance, "Watchtower". Its words have been moving me for twenty years now, and in essence, the lyrics don't say anything. There is no development, temporal or otherwise; no events; not even moods are described. Yet even if you listen to the original first version of it, by Jimi Hendrix, you can't hold your tears back.
not sure where you are coming from here.

please expound.

as said before, i usually ingore lyrics - which requires "thinking" and when listeing to music for myself "thining" is what I try to excape from, so its all about the beat and melody (two different things - and yes both not linked to lyrics either).

welcome wher you are coming from in your post - clarify please.

thanks,

gaffo

Well as the boys from Monty Python once said, and now for something completely different (it's just the mood I am in):-

The Australian band 'Died Pretty' are barely known. Their album 'Doughboy Hollow' to me is the greatest of any album released by an Australian Band, i've seen them countless times...any way, since i'm a nice chap i've included the lyrics to this one, do enjoy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdwNr96BdPM

Drifters and dreamers in the pit of my heart
Dragging me deep down to their warning
We could return soon in the guise of false teens
Jacked up and wrappered in the morning
So here I am, alone with you
The Sunnyboys? - God bless them
And God bless you!
Meatheads with marvels pit their wills in my world
Cash free and brainless are restored here
There is a window to the soul of my world
The curtain it closes on your fear
So here I am, alone with you
The Sunnyboys? - God bless them
And God bless you!
GUITAR SOLO
Grifters and greasers in the whites of my eyes
Dropping their masks and running headlong
Into the station of sedations high beam
And ripping their futures free of no wrong
So here I am, alone with you
The Sunnyboys? - God bless them
And God bless you!
Don't ever go back
Don't ever go back
Don't ever go back there

Beethoven never wrote a "Moonlight Sonata" he wrote the "Sonata quasi una Fantasia".
