Today I was listening to a CD and a song came on that was just really moving. The sound of the singer voice was the most important part. In fact, most of the lyrics I can't even understand. The song was Reynardine by Fairport Convention, but there are some other songs that fit into that same category. The first one that came to mind was Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam. In these kinds of songs, it is not about the words in the song, it is about the sound of the singer's voice when he or she is singing it. It illustrates the power of the human voice as an instrument regardless of the words being sung.
