Everyone I should think I know I've misheard many of Kate Bush's lyrics and my mishearings made sense until I read her lyrics and then THEY made sense

not always but sometimes, understanding song lyrics enhances music enjoyments.

people don't want to eat just pepper or pure salt. but adding them on steak makes the steak more tasty.

The fact that you mention MC Solaar is interesting since he is one of the first rappers here who has had a classical approach of French song-writing. I mean his way to write lyrics with poetic / literary manners, with the use of rare words, references to other arts, and lots of "jeux de mots" (playing with words, would be the simplest translation).

For him and his audience (for me too), lyrics are as important as the music. I even see him as a missing point between the older Chanson Franšaise and the younger generations, including the rap audience.

I generally listen to the flow -- the combination of the music and lyrics. Both need to be harmonious. Songs that tell a story or have something meaningful to relay are certainly more impactful for me. I usually find overly repetitive lyrics tiresome. There are some bands I avoid because I think their lyrics to be consistently stupid (not to name names, but one such example begins with "Foreigner"), but for the most part I'm pretty forgiving.
