    Default What type of music do you listen to and what makes a good song?

    Hey guys. How are you? Ok so I was thinking about doing a study on how MBTI correlates with music and lyrics. There have already been some studies, but the more, the merrier. To make this more fun, your input on what makes a good song would be lovely as well. Music is a wonderful thing that everyone should be able to enjoy. Have a nice day!

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference."

    I am a sound person.

    The lyrics can add something minor, and in some cases can ruin a song for me, but that's quite rare.

    I listen predominately to electronic music with female vocalists (but that doesn't capture the breatdh of it completely). I love vocals, but it's all about how it sounds. Vocals is an instrument to me. This is an example of the styles and elements I like.

    I never thought of it that way. For me, it's about lyrics and relating to the artist personally. If a song has bad lyrics, I won't listen.

    Sound. The music should be loud, emotionally charged, and intense.



    Alternately the notes should be intricately weaved into complex arpeggios.

    The types of music I listen to are incredibly broad. One thing I will say is, music matters more than lyrics (considering how much music I listen to that is purely instrumental, it makes sense).

    When the lyrics hit hard, and the music is in a certain key with a certain chord progression, something happens in my brain where I Can run 5-10 miles, or accomplish anything. So the best music for me is the music which has a positive impact on my biology from an emotional standpoint, brings tears to my eyes, or vice versa, extreme energetic bursts of running.

    I find techno, not just for me, but for others, to be not necessarily the best music for any sort of dynamic activity for it is rigid, has little changes, and sucks the lift out of its listeners. Just an observation.

    Believe it or not...most music both in melody and rhythm is borrowed from western Africa.

    IF you listen to Ali Farka you hear blues, you hear rock, you hear swing, you hear everything...the man is amazing, but he is just one of many who produce that music.
