Here, you are required to present Music Review. You are supposed to choose one social issue/problem and find at least 5 songs with lyrics that address your chosen social issue/problem. Furthermore, analyze the songs and compare and contrast how they address that issue and find sources that address music and your social problem. Also, find one peer-reviewed article that discusses your social issue problem and how it is portrayed by the media. Finally, by discussing how your analysis is helpful and relevant in the study of American Popular Culture conclude your music review.
1) Choose ONE social issue or social problem (i.e. drugs, the environment, war, teenage pregnancy, hate crimes, etc).
2) Find at least 5 songs with lyrics that address your chosen social issue/problem. You will need to cite these songs using proper APA formatting (see below).
3) Analyze the songs for similarities and differences in how they address the social issue/problem
4) Find at least two sources that address music AND your social problem (i.e. the sources are providing similar analysis or commentary on how your social problem is addressed through music). These may be popular sources (i.e. magazine articles or websites), but Wikipedia is NOT acceptable.
5) Find at least ONE peer-reviewed article that discusses your social issue problem and how it is portrayed by the media (ideally this would be focused on your social issue and problem, but this may be difficult to find – so an article on TV, radio, internet, movies is OK).
5) Write-up your paper
