What makes a song "good"? What do you think?

Report as

For me, it's lyrics.....without good lyrics....then it's just noise.....and if I wanted tolisten to "just noise" I would go sit by the washing machine......

A song is good if you want to hear it again and again.

NAFTA is a cerebral listener, I'm just not that smart. Stick a kicking back beat with simple 4/4 old style rock & I'm good to go. It really just depends on my mood & what I'm doing. If I'm looking to get pumped up just stick some old Mama Said to Knock You Out, I'll Humpty, Whoomp There's NAFTA. If I'm just chilling out some nice Zep, Who, Doors, Stones, Jimi, feeling the blues with Lead Belly Howlin Wolf. That's what's great about music, different strokes for different folks, I'm listening to Jimmy (as in Cliff) right now-next Mountain or Deep purple

I actually think that that's a wonderful question. A good song means great words. Words that mean something. Not that are just put in there to rhyme. You have to feel the emotions in a song to really get the lyrics. Without a good meaning, songs are useless. They are just jibberjabbor that doesn't make sence

I agree with Radmad. It's a great question and by-passes the difficulty of different people having different preferences.

For me a good song is one that enhances my mood. It might be a love song, it might help me to cope with one of life's problems, it could be a happy, nonsensical song that just feels good, it might be loud or soft or sweet or in-your-face, but if it can enhance the mood I feel then, for me, it's a good song.

Lyrics lyrics lyrics....unless it is an instrumental. Words that simply rhyme to the beat of music is NOT a good song. The lyrics or music must move me....

I wonder if you want to put that another way? Are you suggesting that good music can work as a laxative?

When it touches your heart somehow. (Also, just when it puts you in a really great mood...distracts you from things.)

A song is good when it means something to you and it appeals to your ears. A combination of wonderful lyrics and amazing instruments played... amazingly. Both are needed to make a good song.
