Quora Answer : Do you feel that music is better in a language you do not speak?

Jul 19, 2020

Generally, yes.

I think it's much harder to write good lyrics than good music.

Music is a powerful way to transform and amplify emotions, and take you on a voyage to new worlds. And many musicians can do an OK enough job of that as to make decent music.

OTOH, most lyrics are pretty awful. Either banal, trite or meaningless doggerel.

Songs which could be great musically, are dragged down and become something far less, when I can't manage to ignore words.

But if the song is in a language I don't understand, then I don't have that problem.
