Over analyzing music

Steve comments on Brick. He suggests that while the song is depressing, perhaps I’m over analyzing the words. Perhaps it’s a personality flaw of mine or something, but I find it very hard tog get past the lyrics to songs. I don’t spend hours googling to determine what each word means, but I am certainly listening to the words. To me I guess the lyrics are a specialized form of poetry.

There are certainly bands I don’t like because the lyrics are boring. Even worse are the lyrics which I would describe as whiny.

Different strokes for different folks?
