  1. 1. Do you like music for lyrics or sound?



Recommended Posts

Good lyrics are a bonus, but I rarely actually pay attention to lyrics. I mean, a song can sound well and truly terrible even if it had the most beautiful lyrics ever. The two main things that hook me with a song is the groove and the melody. Much of the music I listen to is foreign, and so I don't understand what the hell the singers are going on about 99 percent of the time, but it appeals to me if it has a solid groove and a nice/catchy melody. I personally think they're the two most important aspects of a song. Well... and the mood, of course!

Definitely sound.

Melodies and hooks are powerful things and a lot of the time, I find, they don't need vocals to enhance them. (Of course their are the few wonderful musicians who are able to pull off beautiful music along with powerful lyrics. :ewhz:

Most music I listen to it is the combination of music and lyrics that make a song awesome! A good set of lyrics mixed well with the music can make an unbeatable song. Then you have Anime OST, just the music alone is awesome. So I would have to say the music more than the lyrics makes music special to me.

The physical attractiveness of the artist?

This made me laugh, because sometimes that's how it happens for me. Before I started listening to Steam Powered Giraffe, I had only seen gifs of them on Tumblr. And because The Spine is super attractive, I had to look them up, and it all went downhill from there. DON'T JUDGE ME I'M SHALLOW.

Pretty much every new artist or song I listen to that isn't from my occasional dive into Jamendo or Pandora is because of GIFs on Tumblr, so I don't blame you, haha.  Not to mention it was because of my dash that I actually started watching MLP, just to see what the fuss is about.

the lyrics can be ridiculous but if the artist has a great voice and the sound is awesome, chances are i'm going to like the song. but the difference between a great song and a good song is the meaning it has towards the listener and that is why the lyrics are so important. if it sounds good, people are going to listen to it, but if it sounds good and has meaning then it will become great.

      Let's discuss about east asian lossless music distribution methods. I myself is currently focused for Japanese music and I am getting disappointed much because of unavailability of what I look for. I know,  people will say jps is the best place. But they are not. Bunch of fraud guys there uploads lossy to lossless transcodes. Their administration panel is somewhat reluctant to this. In my experience, mods are hobbyist and immature of musical taste. Furthermore there is a bad tradition of sharing flac files without eac documents. Reputed community like Red,Gcs,Apl,Wfl are strict about this. But they are nothing next to specialized on Japanese music, I don't expect either. My personal interest is classical jp music from last century, rare records and indie/alt bands . Hilarious enough jps waste money on silly girly groups. It is soul sickening. I am aware that Japanese themselves use p2p clients like pd,share,utatane, winny but none of them seems to be handy for music. I would really like to know if there's anything else.
      For chinese music I heard about ocd. I will check them out soon. For now, I am less interested in kpop. But like to know about it. nyaa,bk,u2 has some music, but they are mostly anime related.  Let me know your thoughts and TIA

      We need to make some noise and get people aware of this as it could be bad for everyone outside the US and Canada.
      Knowing how this forum is hosted outside the US, our community could fall victim to this at any time.
       
      We already have a few pre-requisites that could help getting this defeated once again
      -The US president (Donald Trump as of the creation of the post) hates the TPP, so this could get international fanatics of the president to turn against it.
      -There's currently a holocaust-like scenario in the Hollywood where many prolific people are being outed as sexual pests, making the fact that they're trying to get people canned from cyberspace for doing as little as looking up movie clips not sit well with many (TL;DR it should be a cakewalk to get the pedowood crowd on-board).
       
      Quoting a anonymous 8chan user (ID 866ffd on 11/11/17) the anon summarized the bill in full as:
