“Top Songs in the Sixties: A Content Analysis of Popular Lyrics” by Richard Cole is an article relaying the topic, methodology, and results of a study on the effects popular music has on the teenage audience. As a basis for the study, the influence of popular bands, such as The Beatles, on teenagers’ hair styles and clothing styles is cited. Another basis is the occurrence of teenagers to identify with and view recording stars as a representation of a significant other in their lives. The study analyzed lyrics from the annual Top 10 Billboard lists for each year during the 1960s. Each song’s lyrics were analyzed and grouped as happy, unhappy, or balanced and notes taken according to four specific topics: love-sex, religion, violence, and social protest. The results showed a shift in the grouping and topic focus of songs from the first half of the decade as compared with the last half of the decade, but did not identify any discernable pattern as to what would qualify a song for popularity among teenagers. The results of this study differed from the only previous study noted on song lyrics and it is suggested that more research should be pursued in this area.
