THE EFFECTS OF HEAVY METAL MUSIC ON AGGRESSION IN COLLEGE STUDENTS

Alexander Kyei's insight:

The paper examines the effect of heavy metal on levels of aggression in college students.The study was made up of 32 people aged 17-20. The study overall found no relationship between aggressive music and agression in college students. I'm concered about the credibility since it was such a small study. Nonetheless, their conclusion will help support my final position paper.

While this seems to be written by a undergraduate student, you can use this source in limited and careful circumstances. And, you are right to be concerned about the small study, but as long as you are clear about the sample size in your essay and mention the risks of making judgement from it, you should be okay.

A new Finnish study finds that combining music therapy with a standard treatment for depression — medication, plus psychotherapy and counseling — improves
Alexander Kyei's insight:

The source shows that there have been succesful studies in which music has been used to treat depression. The reliability of this source is average, it comes from a Norwegian university, however there are limited reference sources. This source will be useful for my CAS paper as in my EOE paper I focused on the link that music could have on depression.

Make sure you also check out the original research in British Journal of Psychiatry. This source looks to be reporting on their findings.

Get this from a library! Music listening, coping, peer affiliation and depression in adolescence. [Dave Miranda; Michel Claes]
Alexander Kyei's insight:

This source is a study of why teens are drawn to certain musical genres. The study considers social motivations as well as personal motivations such as coping mechanisms. I am iffy on the credibility as the researchers tackle a difficult topic, and rather than answer it outright, they seem to try and define it more and more. The article brings up a lot of interesting motivations for music listening. I plan on using it for my CAS paper.

Good to know you're conscious of the distinction between simple definition or clarification and genuine analysis or discussion. Definitely sounds like good support for introductory exposition, or leading up to your discussion of specific genres.

The power of music

Alexander Kyei's insight:

Oliver Sacks explores how music affects the brain and the psyche. His goes about this in a very philisophical manner, and his conclusions offer a decent outlook on how music can affect a person's behavior. Google says this source has been cited 55 different times, so I believe it's very credible. I'm going to use this in my CAS paper as well as my Final Position paper when I define how music is a part of everyone's lives.

Nice point about how many times this article has been cited; although, I would guess it has been cited even more than what Google states.

"Pop-Rock music as precipiating cause in youth Suicide"

 

This case study by Litman and Farberow follows the case of a double suicide that was believed to have been caused by subliminal lyrics from the metal band Judas Priest. Farberow and Litman have been referenced several times by other reasearchers in the field of music/depression.The source is useful for its real life examples and useful statistics. I will use Litman and Farberow's examples as supporting details in future papers.

Since this source seems to most thoroughly embody your argument, just remain careful to use it as a supplement for your own assertions and not let the words from the article handhold you through your discussion! Also, because this is a description of a court case, be careful about handpicking only immediately relevant facts about the case, as the court's decision doesn't necessarily seem to be in the favor of your thesis =/

Problem Music and Self-Harming - North - 2011 - Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior - Wiley Online Library | ENGL101 Annotated Bibliography | Scoop.it
Alexander Kyei's insight:

This source follows a study that tries to prove causation between self-harm and problem music such as punk, hard rock, and Rap. North and Hargreaves make reference to many other studies and define several terms that are useful when discussing the topic of depression. This helps establish there credibility, which is relatively strong. I will likely cite them in future papers when discussing how music can affect people.
