When listening to music, do you listen to the tune or the lyrics?
Both. My generation is Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Stevie Wonder, The Stones, Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc. The words & music are both listened to.
It sounds like you listen to quality music
Beat first, lyrics later
The tune is usually what catches my ear, but the lyrics keep me coming back for more.
Interesting gender stats
I don't listen to a lot of music with lyrics unless the focus is on the vocals as an instrument to compliment the rest of the music.
