    Lyrics. It's best when the lyrics are folded into the song as another instrument, but still sends it's messages. Barring that, good lyrics can save the worst music, but bad lyrics just make me laugh too much to enjoy the song for more than a few minutes.

    I've always lived by the idea that good music is universal and therefore it doesn't require any form of language. But even so, I end up focusing on the lyrics more.

    Also have a preference for very intense and powerful singers.

Personally I have always placed more importance on the melody, chord progressions etc; most lyrics seem to me like poorly written poetry and are usually quite basic in their use of expressing meaning verbally. If it was words I was after, surely I'd just read a book?

    So: music or lyrics, and do you think it has anything to do with functions/type at all?
    I focus on both so I don't think it has anything to do with MBTI.

    I don't think so either. But it was interesting to see the responses anyway.

    I definitely take note of music over lyrics, however

    the vocalist is incredibly important to me. All of my favorite bands have distinct vocalists: Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, Modest Mouse. I remember once posting if Chris Cornell taught me anything, it's that what you're saying doesn't mean shit, it's how you say it.

    Music without a doubt.... the pure groove of it. Most of the time I don't even hear the lyrics, and if I do sometimes I'll even block them out to avoid running away screaming from most everything Top 40. Though sometimes I'll take notice of clever lines here and there.

    When I'm in a good mood, I tend to just relax and enjoy the music. When I'm sad, I let the words speak to me (but both matter all the time)!

    Music. Definitely music. I get too easily distracted to pay attention to lyrics. That's not to say if a song has a really annoying line I can't stand (overly absurdly stupid) but a good rhythm that I'd sit there and listen. I'd leave in an instant. Overly stupid lyrics are just as bad as ear piercing jams. Nice songs and good lyrics, even better!

    More than half of what I listen to has no lyrics so I will let that speak for itself.

    Both, but I think I focus a bit more on the lyrics. Especially when I'm hearing it for the first time, I tend to listen to the words for the meaning, and I like hearing the emotion in someone's voice as they sing certain lines, that really affects me. But at the same time, the melody is usually the first thing I notice about a song. The music sets the mood for the song, it helps me get a vibe. However, I can grow to like a melody, like it might start off weird but I stick it out to see if I like where it goes. Whereas I can't listen to a song that has lyrics I don't like. But... I also don't like to listen to a song if the melody isn't good or if it's too overpowering. So I guess it in the end it depends but mostly lyrics? lol.
