I often hear people say that today’s music is rubbish and has no meaning to it, and I can understand where they’re coming from. I mean, Anaconda anyone? So pointless. But let’s not forget that there are plenty of artists out there today who write original and meaningful lyrics. I often listen to the lyrics of a song and although it might not be the deciding factor to whether or not I like it, it plays a pretty big part sometimes.
So, to show those of you who don’t believe me, I’ve picked out snippets from lyrics that I believe are really worth mentioning. I’m pretty sure you’ll have heard the songs, but if you haven’t you should listen to the full songs too (clicking on the images will take you to the Youtube videos).
The Script – Superheroes
Echosmith – Cool kids
Years & Years – Shining
Avicii – The Nights
Jaymes Young & Phoebe Ryan – We won’t
I love all these songs to bits, beyond the lyrics. I’ve got a very broad music taste so I like songs from most genres. I like catchy songs too, it doesn’t always have to be about the lyrics, but it’s no secret that you can connect more with a song that has meaningful lyrics.
