hmm, I agree with Tsukiko and I believe that music is just like a universal language. Everyone puts emotion into a song, to the point that even if it is in a language you dont understand, sometimes you still know what theyre singing about. For example, when I first heard Planetarium, I didnt have the english lyrics...and I dont know japanese....yet the song still made me cry cuz I could feel her emotion in the song.

It's an amazing form of expression, that's for sure. I don't have to know what the lyrics mean to enjoy a song. Some things are just ten times better when sung, too. =]

music was once a freely expressive mass medium, of which now an industry taken over by large conglomerates with their only interest in profitable revenue. /hate

Music is something that is meant to be felt.
You don't really have to understand the lyrics and if it's good music, you should be able to understand the meaning of the song right away. Smile

It means a lot of things, but I personally think it's entertainment! Boogie I love listening to music every single day. I love how it could tell a story or maybe keep your mind on track. Well you don't have to tell a story in music, it's all about enjoying what you listen to! Boogie

It's also interesting that we consider a bird's chirping "singing" or "music" when they use it to communicate. To find mates, right? And I can't name very many songs that DON'T use the word "you" or reference to another person....

I think the same. One day my mom was listening some enka's song. I didn't understand the lyric, of course, but I started to imagine the ocean and a sad woman too. When I asked what the song was about, mom said was about a sad woman who missed her mom. I was like Surprised when I heard and discover I imagine right.

So I totally agree with lyx3 Nod Nod

For me music is everything!!!..xD...I couldn't live without it, i always have a song playing on my brain..xD
Music is the language of the soul, it's a sincere way to express feelings and a reflection of someone's personality. You don't really need to understand the lyrics, you need to understand the feelings transmmited by the artist. Almost all Songs express the most pure and private feelings of an artist and that's the most important thing of being a musician; they open their lifes like a book so we can use their experiences to become better persons.
The best musician isn't the one who uses espensive clothes and has a model face and body...the best musician is the one who touches our heart with his/her music and lyrics and let us feel the emotions he is feeling...


Ok..I finished.. Laughing xD

^ awesome point Rodri Smile

to me...music is an expression of soul, of spirit and of creativity. it's through the efforts of the person who writes the lyrics and creates the melodies that something from inside can be put outside. songs can be silly or for fun, and they can be heartfelt and striking but never ever meaningless. I'm a writer myself and I feel that, if you don't put your heart into what you're creating, then it isn't coming from you. the same goes for music; if an artist writes what comes to their mind first then they can later expand on it and put more of "themselves" into it. in the end you have a song which is much like an open book.

...so that's my 2 cents of the day Tongue

Music is my life. I love hearing music and singing and I listen to music every time I can Nod . And I agree with the points of the others. music is something which connect us. See, if there wouldn't be the music, we wouldn't know each other cause the music of Ai connect us!
When I'm listen to a song, both, the lyrics and the melody/singing of the artist is important to me. When I like the melody I can't get it out of my head and when I like the lyrics, they make me thoughtful and I want to get the meaning of the song (One reason why I translate lyrics Smile !)
I think, without music, the world would be just a monochrome, dismal and boring globe...
