What kinds of music lyrics do you like?
Last month I asked what kinds of music lyrics bother you. This is the followup question.
I’ll start with a few examples. I like “For Pretend” by Beauty Pill, which is about a person who becomes a bad father for the sake of method acting. The story is cute and funny, and relevant to my interests (here, it’s my interest in metafiction).
Another one I like, “In Two” by Nine Inch Nails. It’s kind of abstract, but I guess it’s about someone violently splitting into two, and then it’s hard to tell the two apart? The main thing is, I like this music to begin with, and the lyrics are intelligible without me needing to look them up. Also, I am entertained by the thought that the lyrics describe people who adopt aggressive personas on the internet. This is relevant to my interests.
