Thread Name: If you don't like ballads......
Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
I'm a music person...

Words in songs usually just wash over me..
unless they are so badly written they are just too jarringly obtrusive and distracting...
Then I get irritated..

I am very happy with songs written in languages I don't understand...

I have in my vast collection, some excellently arranged musically captivating recordings
ruined by shite lyrics...

Even worse if they are sung in a glib fashion...

British bands from the 1970s tend to be guilty of these crimes..
