How do you listen to music?

i'd like to know whether you listen to music for the music or the lyrics or both? I'm trying to figure out a percentage so the more people answering the better. and if you can answer for other people you know that would help also like your girlfriend family members friends etc. I'll vote for every answer

I listen to the beats first. Then the lyrics. If I find the lyrics REALLY offensive I might turn it to another song.

I listen to music for the melody first.

Then for the vocal & lyrics unless it's an instrumental.

I usually try to listen to both lyrics and instruments equally. But I'll say that I probably do listen to the lyrics first. And in recent years I've listened to a lot of music without lyrics at all. I think instruments can be just as expressive as words if not more so.

Oh, and I find amusement in people who drive around blasting the bass of non-instrumental songs. I figure they must not care about the lyrics because they're probably being drowned out. But hey, as long as they look cool. :)
