I was listening to Interpol's new cd the other night which did not have a lyric sheet with the cd. Cheap! So I found the lyrics (the full set, no less) online & printed them out.

So, do YOU, yeah you, read lyrics with your cd- at least the first time through? Do you hunt for lyrics to accompany the downloads or cd's w/out a lyric sheet with?

Or do you like to listen & just figure out lyrics as you're listening?

Usually I listen to it the first few times without lyrics, and then i look them up (or read them, if they come with the cd) to check that i'm understanding it right.
Often i have found, that I'm not hearing it right... so i'm glad i get the real words, so i dont sing it wrongly.

If the lyrics are included, I read along the first time. I seem to have an ear for hearing music rather well so after the initial first time of reading w/lyrics, I stop and just let my ears do the rest. 9 times outta 10, I'm right on the money. Smile

Unless the singer sings real clearly, i usually read the lyrics first time around. I've done a lot of net searches for lyrics either not included with a cd or for lyrics too muddled or tiny to read on the lyric insert page thing.

I tend to read along when I listen for the first time and go back to them when I'm still not sure on something on the following listens.

Okay, usually I like to listen and figure out the lyrics. I really like this song by Bruce Springsteen, but it sounds like he's singing,"Red Devil In The Freezer Aisle". That cannot be the lyrics...LOL


Your Hidden Talent



You have the natural talent of rocking the boat, thwarting the system.
And while this may not seem big, it can be.
It's people like you who serve as the catalysts to major cultural changes.
You're just a bit behind the scenes, so no one really notices.

What's Your Hidden Talent?

Sometimes you have to let art just flow over you.

What was the question?

Oh yes, I rarely read lyrics unless I've been listening to a song for ages and want to sing along with it and suddenly figure out that they can't possibly be singing "We've got big beaters".

i've learned that i can never take my assumptions about lyrics very accurately, so i'll tend to sing what ever i think is being said, and then listen more carefully next time if i know it can't possibly be right. if after that i still can't figure it out (like with that crazy-ass ratcat cd that doesn't even have a track list), i crack and scower the internet for the answers. of course, if the lyrics are provided in the cd, i'm all over it Razz

on that note, cheers to blink 182 (even though i can't read most of the songs because they're scrawled in a tiny but precise spidery hand-writing) and jeers to the killers. why must they with-hold their masterful poetry from me? why??
