Strongly agreed. I've heard enough lyricized versions of my favorite game tracks, and they've more than not made me metaphorically vomit in disgust. You occasionally get some great ones, but it's more flop than flip. (Just look at some of the Touhou tracks, both original, then lyricized, for example. Or the vocal version of Dimentio's theme from Super Paper Mario.)

-----------------------------

Flipping that, instrumental music is better than lyricized music (in the sense that everyone can understand/enjoy it without having to know the words).

*Disclaimer: This nation only uses some of the policies and stats stated. They will be stated if used, but are otherwise to be ignored.

No, this nation and its flag is NOT based off Minecraft, Terraria, or anything of the sort. I made the flag using an app on my phone (...and ran out of space). Please stop making relations to such, as it has become highly irritating to be compared to such. The art is of my own creation, and of my own ideas, not from a pre-existing game. Thank you.

Not really. ABBA became one of the most popular bands in the world when they didn't even speak English. The human voice resonates with humans even if they don't understand the words.

Music should not be used to "send a message" - i.e. preach.

Agree.


There is nothing wrong with most religions, and the biggest issue with religious extremists is they try to spread their religion in a way that makes them lose focus of what their religion is actually saying.

No, there's no need for 'memes' when you have a billion-man-country's primary media channel/corporation. Sadly the internet economy is trending towards monopoly now just like the industrial one did in the 1880s, and some services are becoming dangerously large.



In literary and digital entertainment, sending a message should always come second to telling a good story in an engaging way.

Agree.

The people who parrot 'Bill Nye isn't a real scientist' like brain damaged school children are also the same type to reject Psychologists in regards to the LGBTQ community*, literal Scientists on climate change, Sociologists on the effects of marginalization of demographics, or Political Scientists/Economists explaining what the bloody hell Marxism really is. Sorry to say, but "free speech" takes the back seat when it comes to not being a fucking moron and you should be stripped of your rights until you can explain why the Economist isn't a Marxist propaganda piece. Also, take care of your skin and groom you greasy haired neckbeards. You're the reason why America is one of the few countries in the West to seriously consider an iron fist Authoritarian state, we can't be trusted with our own ballot.

Disagree. The UK govt has many good quirks like common law, a relaxed parliamentary atmosphere, and private railways, but devolved unitarism and the lack of any kind of constitution are not one of the good parts of British uniqueness.
