What is your favorite aspect of music?

  1. What is your favorite aspect of music?

    From my experience, it seems that the favorite aspect of music determines the type that you enjoy listening to. Be it lyrics, rythm, melody, instrumental and vocal quality, there are many intricate parts of music that make a certain song/band/style unique. What is your favorite?
    I like soft numbers mostly and it's particularly the instruments that sets my mood.
    What do you guys like? :-k

  2. Everything, I like to listen to a song and analyse every aspect. Sometimes I would like a song, then hear a part of the lyrics I don't like, and that would ruin the whole thing.
  3. I know what you mean there. Sometimes a song has a great sound, but the lyrics just kill it. Then, sometimes, though not as often, it's the other way around.

    I like upbeat stuff a lot, but I also like slow, softer stuff. It just depends on my mood. The lyrics are the most important part of the song, though. If the lyrics are bad, I don't want to hear it. Up until a couple of years ago, I pretty much listened exclusively to country music, and you find a lot of good music with bad lyrics there.
  4. What concerns me about the lyrics in Christian music as of late is that every single song on the radio seems to fall within some unspoken Christian vocabulary. With the exception of a few bands like Kutless and Switchfoot, the newer music falls into a cookie cutter lyric format. I can almost recite the next two lines of a song as I'm listening to it for the first time.

    Lyrics are important to me, because of my prior background of listening to the darker, more alternative songs of my teenage years, and the messages that they conveyed. Now I am strengthened by the inspired, but sometimes challenging lyrics of my fellow believers.
  5. Amen! Right on my brother!

    CCM Music has gotten so commercialized and

    I am a former professional rock n' roll guitarist
    and singer.

    I know the 'ins' and 'outs' of the secular and
    so-called Christian music of today! I have a
    wealth of info. on it if anyone is really interested!

    The 'lyrics' let alone the 'music' that's supposed to
    Praise, Worship and lift up Jesus is 'muddled' in
    obscurity with 'loud' drums and guitars! The lyrics
    are indistinguisable to say the least!

    Here's an example of what I am saying-

    Surely, no Christian would "listen" to songs by
    satanist Ozzy Osbourne! Right??!!....................
    .... Wrong!!!!!

    Jars of Clay, not ONLY "listens" to satanic
    Ozzy Osbourne, but they're so "INFLUENCED" by
    satanic Ozzy !


    Some of the "satanic" lyrics to "Crazy Train":

    Crazy, but that's how it goes. . .
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    I've listened to preachers
    I've listened to fools. . .
    Crazy, I just cannot bear
    I'm living with something that just isn't fair
    Mental wounds not healing
    Who and what's to blame
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

    Is there ANYBODY that is so "spiritually" BLIND
    that they could POSSIBLY think Ozzy Osbourne's
    "Crazy Train: would be obeying Ephesians 5:19,
    "Speaking to yourselves in PSALMS and HYMNS
    and SPIRITUAL SONGS, singing and making
    melody in your heart to the Lord;"

    After watching a Jars of Clay concert, a writer for
    The Birmingham Post-Herald wrote these
    "enlightening" words:

    "You've got to give Jars of Clay credit for a
    WICKED sense of humor. Why else would
    they do a langorous, offbeat treatment of
    Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train"?

    . . . the former lead singer of Black Sabbath
    and a man noted for his interest in the occult."

    2Cor. 6:14: Be ye not unequally
    yoked together with unbelievers: for what
    fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?
    and what communion hath light with darkness?

    Why wouldn't any 'truly' born again saint of God
    sing with words, from beginning to end of a song,

    I words that are not 'carnal' but Word of God -


    2Cor. 11:14: And no marvel; for
    Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    2Cor. 11:15: Therefore it is no great thing if his
    ministers also be transformed as the ministers
    of righteousness; whose end shall be according
    to their works.

    Your brother in Christ,
