probably music..I have to go down the same road as Skeek went..some of my favourite songs are instrumentals..when isolated from any vocal arrangments it can still move and inspire you on the same levels..music is usually the first thing that draws me to a song and normally afterwards I look at how the lyrics compliment the music..~..

I guess I would agree though that a song probably won't be truly "great" if the music is great but the lyrics stink. You have a really great song if the lyrics and the music kind of compliment each other and open each other up. But look at a song like Streets. The lyrics most certainly do not stink--there are some good lines in there. But I don't think it's one of Bono's best lyrics by a long shot. "I want to run, I want to hide" isn't very profound. It's just that when you have them with that guitar, sung in that way...

The music matters the most, It's the music that moves me. Great lyrics are icing on the cake.

I say it's a combination of both. However, I have to say that when I start to like a song it's because of the music and then I listen to the lyrics. What makes an excellent song for me is if they have both great music and lyrics.
