I saw Arcade Fire on Sunday night and it occurred to me that, while I've listened to AF since Funeral, I barely know any of the words to their songs. This then led me to the realization that I hardly know the words (or at least ALL the words) to any songs released in the last 10 years.
I feel like from a production perspective, vocals are a lot less distinct in mixes now and it's generally harder to tell what is being sung. Do any of you feel this way? Do you take the time to look up lyrics and learn them? I feel like I generally enjoy songs more when I stop and learn the words.
