Anyone here prefer songs without lyrics??


I do and there's been a lack of it so I started making it myself!

Try that.
Yes, lyrics usually get in the way of the mood I’m after. They narrow the trip and set boundaries.
Glad I'm not the only one.... 

     Just for clarity and for the sake of giving you the business, aren't songs without lyrics technically referred to as instrumentals?

Jean-Luc Ponty never gets old for me. 


As well as some others who make these so-called..."instrumentals".
Like them both .Booker T and the MGS Time is Tight is an old favourite.Topper Headen does a nice rendition also.
The Meters

To avoid the ego loop echoing endlessly in the mind, one has to avoid lyrics in music.

to learn the new, to embrace the new, to be renewed in the self...the cup must be emptied from it's full condition, so the new can get in. 

Therefore, silence the mind, silence the ego, silence the inner voice. Don't excite it, don't feed it, and so on. This cannot be forced. the ego must be made to, or aided into going gently into the night..

And then, finally, the beginnings of intelligence.... can finally have a chance to be.
I like it, ALL, with or without,  just no Yoko Ono, EVER...

The Ventures were my first favorite band; I had a half dozen of their albums before getting any Beach Boys or Beatles.

Bill Frisell’s recent Guitar In The Space Age album is very Ventures-like, but rather disappointing (I’m a Frisell fan, but this album is imo pretty mediocre).

Booker T & The MG’s are amongst the best of the best; I made their song "Green Onions" the ringtone on my cell phone. Dylan employed them as his backing band for one tour (I think Neil Young did as well). Much better in that role than were Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Speaking of The Heartbreakers: Mike Campbell is a big fan of instrumental combo Los Straitjackets, and arranged for them to open for Petty & TH at their 1999 Irvine Meadows show.

An unusual take on an instrumental album is Moontan by Telecaster-maniac Evan Johns. The album contains 12 songs, 6 instrumentals alternating with 6 vocals. Evan is backed on the album by instro-band The Hillbilly Soul Surfers; their bassist had left the band shortly before the recording of the album to join Los Straitjackets.

Funny topic. I really thought I was alone on this topic. Certainly there are times where lyrics make the song. But a lot of times I just want to get lost in a jam session. It can be prog,jazz,rock,blues,even electronica. Also,thanks grey9hound for those recommendations.

True Grasshopper, but the cup must be emptied, not just from it's full condition but to utmost emptiness. No words, no voices, no instruments, no sounds.


My system excels at this. But it has to be turned off at the breaker.


     Get the rhythm, get the rhythm.
     There you go, there you friggin go!

Perpetual Grace,

Btw did anyone check mine out!?
Yes I too appreciate music without lyrics,

But when you say songs which genre of music are you mainly referring to? Just curious since this really could run the gamut.

I didn’t hit up the link you’ve included maybe I’ll try that next.
