That means you don't like instrumentals, classical songs?
I personally don't give a shiet about lyrics if the music or vocals are good. If I'd want to experience some good text I'd read some poetry. Music is music.
For example, this song you've posted :Charice - "Pyramid" featuring Iyaz
has too much words. I despise rap & r&b (wich ironically Rythm And Blues was once called R&B and this shiet was good) because there is too much talking.
Vocals in this song are bland and cliched. They're clean, but they have no power. The lyrics are the base of this song and the vocals. I don't rate lyrics. They could be singing about taking a dump for all I care, and if they'd do that I'd rate it higher because it'll be a sing of non-stereotypical thinking. The melody and instrumental track are only an addition, a simple rythm.
As I wrote before I don't rate songs that don't annoy me lower than 5, so5/10
Ok., some synthpop by band called Iris
. Their main composer is Andrew Sega known in ModTrack Scene as Necros. For me he's a legend. The stuff he writes in Iris
is somewhat different due to the fact that :
a) it's a pop
b) it has a vocalist
Nevertheless the band grew on me. Soothing and sometimes melancholic :
