    I write and listen to quite a few instrumentals. The best music in the world is instrumental, really. I like the idea of letting the listener decide what the music is about.

    If done right, instrumental music can be much more engaging than music with lyrics. I love the unusual structure that many instrumentals have (more progressive.)

    Well...everyone's opinion is valuable....and should never be discounted. I can't say that instrumental music is more...or less...moving or visual or motivating or emotional or engaging or...whatever you want to add here.

    It does seem obvious, however, that if instrumental music was more of the above than music with lyrics and vocals...there would be more of it being sold and consumed. There's something to be said about what's popular....especially when the tally is not close.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Beware letting the listener decide for themselves what your lyrics or your music means !

    Everything I write is instrumentals. The hard thing is to write a melody that sticks in the listeners ears. I can write guitar-centric stuff all day - music that relies on the beauty of the sound of the guitar, but melody is more difficult and melody is what makes something worth listening to.

    Ultimately the listener always hears what they want to, i'm afraid.

    As for the idea that music requires lyrics to connect i would put forth jazz, symphonies, ballets, soundtracks, edm, well you get the idea

    I might have missed it but I don't think anyone said that music requires lyrics to connect.

    I generally write instrumental pieces to perform a specific function in a collection of songs. A bridge between songs to set up tempo or key, or the introduction of a theme, etc. I think I've only written one or two standalone instrumentals.
