Default Do lyrics matter? It's a fight!

Hi Glenn,

Thanks, I learn a lot from what you share!

There's a band called Blues Traveler... Probably they're most famous for their song "Run-Around" in 1994... It got to number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also won them a Grammy award...

On the same album, they had a lesser hit, called "Hook"... Where it's about how (the singer claims) the lyrics don't matter!
"It doesn't matter what I say / So long as I sing with inflection / That makes you feel that I'll convey / Some inner truth or vast reflection."
Some say this is satire! And it's true that there are some hits where the lyrics probably don't matter...

But I think (like you) that lyrics DO matter... Because people can relate to them, and want to sing along to them!

Many of Bob Dylan's early songs - the music is extremely simple... Simple chord changes. The whole appeal are the lyrics...

Not to mention some hip hop / rap too...!

Thanks Glenn!

Best wishes, Dien

Here's "Run-Around"...!

Taylor gives enough DETAILS for her FANS.

Swifties to KNOW who she is Talking about.

(ME - I am in the Dark. Until they figure it out.)

The name of a Bar.

A Boyfriend who had a Heroin Addiction.

The name of a Bar next to one of Taylors Condo's in NYCity.

They String all the Hints together and say...

This song is about Joe.

This Song is about Matty.

This song is about Travis.


What I CAN do is offer INSIGHTS about what Taylor is doing
to make her Lyrics ADDICTIVE.

In Fact.

In The Song, "Who's Afraid of Little Old Me"

She says, "People Say I Put Narcotics in my Music. Which is Why You are still singing along after all these Years."

CLEVER to say, "People Say"

Because Taylor DOES Drug Listeners with Words and Stories that Create

I Watched 3 Sets of Women LISTEN to Taylors "Tortured Poets Department"
And after 15 songs.

They were SO WRUNG OUT from Crying.

They Logged out to go lie down.
