Sometimes, when I'm discussing music with my friend, we get into an argument over Radiohead. He says he finds them incredibly boring because he can't understand their lyrics and the ones he can make out are impossible to understand without having a ton of background. I point out that Sigur Rós often write gibberish lyrics and Beck is famous for nonsense lyrics. He says that there is almost no point at all in having a vocalist if the lyrics don't make sense. I would like to know what CFC thinks on the subject of the importance of lyrics and the clearness of a vocalist's annunciation of them. Is a song inherently better if its lyrics make sense and can be heard clearly? Or does it sometimes not matter? Or is it somewhere in between?
