    Its pretty even, though its the music that attracts me to the song, and the lyrics that play a part in whether I listen to it again or not...

    1/2 the time you can't even understand what the lyrics are anyways. Queen was one of those few Bands where you could understand both the Music AND the Lyrics. Now-a-days, you are like "what they say??".

    While I appreciate good talent in both music and lyrics, the simple enjoyment of listening to music is, well, simple. Our brains go through sequences of "search and reward" and that's why we enjoy it.
    However, the words are what we think about, relate to, and sometimes swoon over, so the better the lyrics, the more effective the song.
    That's not to say, however, that the music doesn't matter, cause no one's going to listen to even the finest of poetry if it's set against the juvenile drum beats of a five year old.

    Most of the music I listen to isn't even in English, so the vocals seem like another instrument to me. :O)

    I'm a lyrics person but can't have the lyrics without the music but, music with out lyrics irritates me like its 30 seconds in without lyrics I probably wouldn't be into it

    Depends on the artist. With my favorite artists, both equally.
    But with some of the nonsensical carefree pop music I listen to for fun, i definetely pay more mind to the music. In fact, i try to ignore the lyrics as much as i can cause they're so dumb lol

    Ah, good point! There's fun music that I listen to, and then there's 'deep' music that I listen to with lyrics that make the song. :)
