Song Lyrics - The Story Behind The Music

Music or Lyrics?

Are you a music person or a lyric person? While some music fans are hooked by a good beat, for others, loving music is all about loving the song lyrics. A good song lyric can make you laugh, make you cry, make you fall in love, make you fall out of love and make you want to do it all again. Some lyrics tell a story and some are just silly, but they're all an important part of that magic little element that makes people fall head over heels for a song.

Don't Flub Your Lines

Of course, knowing the right song lyrics is an issue at the heart of many cool points - and party fouls. Being able to sing along with the latest hits might show off your musical prowess, but how would you like to be the poor schlub who was the first to belt out excuse me while I kiss this guy during Purple Haze? (For the record, Jimi Hendrix was kissing THE SKY.)
