I don't know, well-made music doesn't always bring quality lyrics. The mid 90s Oasis is probably considered the best of the era yet they have lyrics like
"i'm feeling supersonic
give me gin and tonic
you can have it all but how much do you want it?
you make me laugh
give me your autograph
can i ride with you in your bmw ?
you can sail with me in my yellow submarine"
from Supersonic, another verse from the same song-
"i know a girl called elsa
she's into alka seltzer
she sniffs it through a cane on a supersonic train
she made me laugh
i got her autograph
she done it with a doctor on a helicopter
she's sniffin in her tissue
sellin' the big issue "
Some Might Say's chorus:
"cos i've been standing at the station
in need of education in the rain
you made no preparation for my reputation once again
the sink is full of fishes
cos she's got dirty dishes on the brain
and my dog's been itchin'
itchin' in the kitchen once again "
These two aren't band's prominent songs but they're singles and have music videos I believe.
Yeah, Sarah that puts it in pretty concise terms. If you can't find new music you like today, it's your own damn fault, no one else.

I did it all for the lulz.
I'm always willing to try out different bands I haven't listened to, but I'm a little more hesitant if it's a new band, just because most of the "popular" music of today sucks in my opinion.
I end up liking about 10% of the bands people recommend to me.
But all that aside, in this thread, nobody posted any aural Florence - only lyrics :P This makes it very easy to see that her lyrics are really good without having to hear any of her music
I personally prefer to listen to Florence, even though LZ were 15x the musicians... at least Retard said she's more "enjoyable" and not "better". But he really lost me when he said he'd rather listen to Bieber than the Eagles...Your name must be more appropriate than I thought
I hate Oasis. But you know I agree that lyrics are the mustard on my bratwurst. I'll eat a bratwurst without mustard, but I'm not gonna scoop out a big spoon of mustard and eat it alone. Awesome lyrics can't make up for crappy music, but awesome music doesn't need lyrics at all. Unless it's rap. I simply can not tolerate rap that's about bitches and hoes and money and drugs and that's it. I don't care how talented the rapper is in terms of flow and rhythm, and I really don't care about how good the beat is, because I don't listen to rap for a beat.You're right with this. Well made music does not need quality lyrics, it's a bonus if it has them. Oasis have much better lyrics than the song listed though, and Noel (the primary lyricist) has often said things about writing really nonsensical lyrics just because they sound good to the ear, which may not make them good lyrics from any kind of "deep meaning" stand point, but it makes them good lyrics for a musical reason, for a pop/rock band to write a single.

(I could go on and on and on!) I just don't like mediocre music regardless of gender
Other than that I agree with everything you said, and I was merely teasing Retard
