Music

Q:

Is listening to music with few lyrics that contain shirk and then mindlessly repeating without belief count as shirk?(I have stopped since)

A:

Bismillah ArRahman ArRaheem 

Wa-Alaykum As Salaam  
 
Because shirk is such a delicate issue it is best to avoid singing such songs even with out the intention of meaning the words, and as you are aware, listening to such things is forbidden.  Since you have stopped and with time, try to replace these words with that of the Holy Quran.  
 
Inshallah it is not shirk as you are not meaning the words.  However, you should be aware that if the tongue gets used to such utterances it will have an effect on the heart
