That's why I listen to the lyrics. They're the part that've supposed to portray the most emotion about the song anyway.

****** lyrics = ****** music.

Simple.

And what if a song is instrumental? Is it then automatically worthless?

The music can be a major Tool to portray symbolisms and highlight key themes too though. When used in conjunction with the lyrics, incorporating patterns or including notes that pertain a certain emotional response the mood of the listener is heightened more than lyrics alone could do, since we associate certain note progressions with certain emotions, it's how modes work. Lateralus by Tool is a great example of how the music holds just as much symbolism as the words.

I understand how the physical music plays into the whole song, I didn't mean to say that the lyrics are all I listen to, just that they're usually the thing that make or break a song for me.

I don't know why people are taking it as though I just insulted their favorite bands.

I'm not taking it as a personal statement that the way I think is wrong or anything :) neither should you with my comment, just providing an alternate look on things. And that's fair enough, everyone enjoys music in different ways for their own different reasons.

If the lyrics aren't something that pertain to my life, so I can connect with them, I just ignore them. The sound of the voice and the rest of the music is what matters anyway.

All music is fairly simple when you get down to it.
Edm can be just as complex, but it's usually more repetitive because it is dance music, which does so on purpose. Try producing something sometime. I play guitar and a moderate amount of piano, producing an edm song is 10 times harder.

I do produce and record music. Not by myself, my brother's a sound engineer, I'm the musician. But it's progressive music, don't tell me that it's difficult to write dance music because it isn't at all. You write 2 or 3 melodies out with a simple chord progression and you can just repeat that for the whole song.

If you're making music that is more than just a few chord progressions, it is difficult.

1st note F--->Fa   
2nd note A--->La   
3rd note  G-->Sol   
If you can't read this,it doesn't automatically mean you are musically challenged.   
I bet a lot of people did not get this is because in Eastern Musical Theory(Europe etc)   
notes don't go like C D E F G A B C but Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do.Please show some respect...

I'm European and in instrumentation we use C D E F G etc... and for vocal exercises we use Do Re Mi etc...
I think that's pretty much how it works around the globe.

Clearly not all of Europe, having lived in the UK my whole life and learned how to read music; I can say I read the notes.

Are you dumb? The imperial system has nothing to do with reading standard notation. Besides, most countries in at least northern Europe would read it as F-A-G. I'm Norwegian, so I at least know that for a fact.

No we don't. We use a weird combination of both, measuring large distances in miles, but short distances in meters/centimeters. And weight in kilograms, and volumes in litres. It's only really the older generation that uses imperial, we were taught to use metric. Don't tell me about my own culture, since you clearly don't understand it.

I'm from Denmark, and i can positively say that the whole of scandinavia read notes as letters: A, A#/B, H, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G and G#/Ab


The whole mixup of the B/H notes was supposedly some drunk guy ******* **** up

Ikr!? I wanted to watch my son enjoy his Modern Warfare came but since I'm a Vietnam vet I couldn't stop myself from pointing out inaccuracies and, when the boy was close to losing, shooting him in the head to keep him from suffering.

I think that four on the floor is just a drumming term.

Or maybe not, i dont know. But i have never heard it used in a non-drumming situation.

I compose and record music, so I can't help but notice mistakes in editing and splicing when I listen to music. it can completely ruin the experience for me.
