One can say that some magic of music is the fact that lyrical songs are extremely catchy: they get stuck in your head, they plague you until you hum or sing it aloud, they infinitely stay with you until another catchy song comes along to take its place.

One can say that the magic of music in lyrical songs is the fact that the lyrics meanings: the lyrics speak to the heart, moving people and their states of minds, or strike a nerve in someone's mind staying there for a very long time.

So I was wondering, what do you feel is more important in a song with lyrics: the catchy-ness that exudes or the meaning of the lyrics that catch the ear?

I say meaning since I've always loved symbolism.

'The Riddle' by Five for Fighting is a perfect example of that.

Anything will get stuck in my head nowadays it doesn't even have to be catchy. I guess the lyrics 'cause whenever I listen to a songs lyrics I get ideas of scenarios that match it.

Depends. Usually, it's more because it's catchy, though. Or because I associate it with something I like. (Just about everything I listen to is from a video game, anime, or a music video with either using the song X: *fail* )

Both are important to me.. I tend to like songs for the catchiness first, and once I've heard it a few times I can see whether or not it means anything to me.

(this is why when someone sends me a song it takes a while for me to like THE SONG and not just the tune :B 'cause I can never make out the lyrics the first time around unless it's simple :B )

hmm...i guess a really good song has both huh? and then it depends the mood you're in too. if ya just wanna dance or something catchy is good coz everyone can dance along with ya and sing and have fun but songs with meaning are often more under known and you end up sitting on your own listening or plaguing your friends to death to listen to it too.

I still get them stuck in my head though hahaha!
