The solution to wanting lyrics-based music but not wanting music to have recognizable lyrics is, of course, music in a foreign language.

(I am sure this will be news to a well-below-average number of people on this site, but it's still a novel idea to a lot of people and worth pointing out.)

You could always try Sigur Ros, which invented their own language for exactly that reason: they wanted lyrics but they didn't want people focusing on the words over the music.

And if lyrics in Icelandic aren't obscure enough, that's really saying something.

Dead Can Dance also sing in made up languages but it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Sigur Ros I'm not such a fan of. I love Dead Can Dance, though.

Love me some Sigur Ros.
