     From http://www.americansongwriter.com/2011/02/songwriter-u-dr-luke/

                 Would you say that it’s sometimes more important how a lyric is sung than what is being sung?

I’m sure there are examples of that. I’m not always proud of all the lyrics in my songs in retrospect. Lyrics have never been my strong point. There are songs I’ve written the lyrics for that have become number one songs, but sometimes I look back and think, “Well, that could’ve been better.” But at the end of the day, when you hear the muzak version of your song, it’s not the lyrics you’re hearing. It’s the melody. And when someone goes to play it on piano, you hear the melody.
