Investigating popular music with Psychology.
Your topic should be both substantive and defensible. That means that what you are writing about is meaningful and that you can argue a position.
As you write, consider the following questions to guide you. Some of these you may need to answer explicitly in your paper, while others may only help you in the pre-writing phase. I am not grading you based on these being explicitly answered in your paper and these should not be a template for your paper’s format.
Why is this question important? Who benefits from this knowledge?
What style(s) of popular music are most impacted by what you are studying? Are certain musicians/fans/people more impacted than others and why?
What is musically important to your discussion? Think about the terms and concepts discussed in class to help answer your research question.
What non-musical concepts are important to your argument?
