Quotes About Music Lyrics

Walt Disney was a great believer in the use of song to convey story. He was primarily a storyman & story-driven songs were his pets. He always asked what was going on with the song - he hated singing heads. He loved learning about character & motivation thru music & lyrics.

— Stephen Sondheim

My music and my lyrics are essentially emotional postcards.

— Sarah McLachlan

— Gail Carson Levine

I don't even know if I always entirely get what I'm trying to say right away with lyrics. I like a lot of things that are more subtext.

— Kim Gordon

The way I feel about music
any song, any style
is that there is no right and wrong, only true and false. If the music and lyrics are conceived out of honesty and if the production of the song goes along with its original message, then what has been expressed is art, regardless of what anyone's opinion is of it. So things are a lots impler if you just tell the truth.

— Fiona Apple

I really enjoy writing lyrics, I enjoy harmonies and I enjoy hearing the organic side of production because I have to do so much non- organic for a living for other artists, it's just a break for me, for my ears and it confuses people that think my music is supposed to sound like the stuff I do for my day job, but that's just people that don't know me.

— Butch Walker
