    It really depends on the artist, the genre, and the song, but typically I'm more of a lyrics person.

    Definitely the music.

    So: music or lyrics, and do you think it has anything to do with functions/type at all?
    I'm same as you - I have always focused on the music.

    Over the past couple of years, I actually have found myself listening to the words though. It's like a whole new experience has opened up to me and I'm appreciating old songs I used to like in a new and different way. It seems ridiculous to me but this is true.

    I listen to the lyrics but the music also matters to me. Some songs have terrible music but good lyrics and i'll like those over songs with bad lyrics but good music. though some music has an extra good beat and it could be like: my bitch tastes like dog shit/i hit her and the tits. and if i had has a bumpity beat i'll listen to it.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Lyrical content is a far second to the structure of a composition.

    I relate to all of these statements. For me music >> lyrics and oftentimes I don't even notice the lyrics. The song grabs me musically and I'm embarrassed to find out later that I song I really liked had really lame or offensive lyrics. If a song has really good lyrics it's a plus if I happen to pay attention to them but I'm unlikely to notice the lyrics if the song doesn't grab me musically first.

    Much of the music I listen to has minimal or no lyrics at all. Like classical or electronic music.

    I really had to think about this. I think I'm most concerned with the overall mood of a song, which is probably owed more to the music than to the lyrics. To listen to the lyrics, rather than just hear voices singing words, requires more of a conscious effort from me.

    Beyond being a feeler, I don't know what, if anything, this says about type.
