Maybe I'm in the minority here, but when it comes to music, I actually care what the lyrics are. Sure I love music without any lyrics at all. In fact I'm pretty sure I listen to the Lord of the Rings sountrack an unhealthy amount. But I think if a song is gonna have lyrics, they should be good lyrics, cause if they aren't, chances are I'm not buying it. For a song to really influence people in a meaningful way it's lyrics have to have a real message. That's why I love artists that have songs with real, non cliche meaning. The right song with the right lyrics can be just the thing for any emotional state. For example, recently in this time of extreme busyness and stress I've taken a lot of strength from Andy Grammer. Plus the video has Dwight Schrute in it which makes it really hilarious.
I pretty much love music in all cases, but in order to really have that extra transcendent quality, it's got to have some good lyrics.
