When it comes to music a good melody is important, it’s often what hooks me, but what keeps me coming back is a good, strong voice and the lyrics. I can forgive a mediocre melody if the lyrics speak to me in some way, and I can forgive weak lyrics and weak melody if the voice is exceptional, but none of those things will keep me coming back for more – the only thing that will keep me interested for more than 5 minutes is the lyrics.
Today’s earworm is Better by Matthew Mayfield. Not only does he have a voice that just drags you along, whether you want to go or not, but the lyrics are absolutely beautiful. Enjoy
