Can I ask questions about the meaning of the lyrics in songs on this site or for example, I heard a female vocalist on a track and I want to know who she is.

Both are off-topic here.

  • Asking about meaning has never came up before (as far as I know). However, I can't imagine it is on-topic. If it's the English itself or the meaning of a phrase that you don't understand, try it on English Language & Usage SE.

  • Asking about who the vocalist is is explicitly off-topic per the FAQ (it falls under the identification section).

I appreciate you asking on meta first (I feel a little bad when I vote to close a user's first question).

  • As I speak, I've just voted to close a new user's first post because he failed to check the FAQ. :( – American Luke Oct 5 '12 at 19:23
  • Maybe a notice that shows up on a users first post, "Here are questions we answer...". Then you wouldn't feel bad... :P – 1.21 gigawatts Oct 5 '12 at 21:15
  • The site is music.stackexchange.com. If you cannot ask questions about music then it should not have the URL music.stackexchange.com. – 1.21 gigawatts Oct 5 '12 at 21:22
  • This is a site for musicians. Our topics include practice & performance technique, music theory, notation, history, composition, instrument maintenance, and usage of specific music software. This is how it stands now. I see you've raised another post. We'll see what the rest of the community thinks. – American Luke Oct 6 '12 at 2:04
  • Thanks Luke, I'm a musician too! – 1.21 gigawatts Oct 6 '12 at 3:00
