I’m curious to know how people feel about this, so I want to take an informal poll. Here are my questions. Answer some or all of them:
- How do you feel when an artist writes a song and you don’t understand what the lyrics mean?
- How would you feel if you heard the creator of a song you like claim that the song’s lyrics didn’t really have any meaning at all?
- How would you feel if someone you knew wrote a song, but refused to explain the lyrics to you, or tell you for certain what the song meant?
Just curious to get your answers on those questions.
