as a singer it really doesn't matter to me because we got some straight we rock and we got some word songs we can rock you know so it just all depends.

Word Songs are Good but keep it straight

I enjoy listening to word songs that I understand in my language, It is always nice to find out what thier saying now and then. But I hate when some groups are so hard to understand. It's really funny I think, becasue I know how it is. listening too one group and then another. But ya the clearer the better.

word songs i think can be really good for expressing how you want to sound for a certain contest catagory....while straights are alot more general.............

I like a big variety. Hard to pick one style overall, but I guess my fave is prolly those fast and choppy word songs with a lot of offbeat syllables, especially when a really good champion group sings 'em.
