Even though most songs contain lyrics, not all songs are lyrical. One of my favourite sayings goes, "music is what feelings sound like." I really do love any genre of music but my number one criteria is this: does the song feel sincere? I guess I long for lyrical lyrics. What are your top five favourite lyrics?
"And the landslide brought me down." Stevie Nicks
"I sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world." Walt Whitman
"Lunatic fringe, I know you're out there." Red Rider
"Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?" The Beatles
