I also play guitar. Playing guitar doesn't make you suddenly incapable of hearing a string of words put together stupidly. Would possibly be nice if it did.

Happy 420 day everyone. I do not partake in the devil's lettuce, or as the cool kids say "Marijuana cigarettes" because I don't want this happening to me:



But it's cool if you do and also enjoy Pink Floyd.

Some people, like myself, put less priority on lyrics. And there's nothing wrong with that.

That's quite different to the illogic of "playing guitar means I don't notice bad lyrics".

I mean that I often care more about instrumentation rather than lyrics. or whatever that meant.

I only put a low priority on lyrics if the artist clearly does too.

4/20 reminds me of what a damned dirty hippie IWB is, and it pisses me off.

My take on lyrics: horrible lyrics don't stand out as much when they are in a foreign language. There's some stuff I don't really mind in English or French that would really make me cringe in Portuguese. And by the same token, it takes more effort to perceive great lyrics in a foreign language.
