This is actually so interesting. Yesterday I was talking and discussing this with my friends and today I saw this post. My opinion is yes, lyrics are very important and they can make me like a song more, but ONLY if I like the song in the first place. There are so many senseless songs I like simply because of the melody. I wouldn't say the lyrics are completely and utterly irrelevant but I don't find them essential to really like a song. Opinions?
