Buser, Trevor J.; Flannery, Brandi; Bentley, Paige; Gladding, Samuel T.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v1 n2 p81-92 2005
This study surveyed 28 graduate students in counseling on the meaning of lyrical music in their lives in a CACREP accredited program at an independent, southeastern university. Results showed that some songs were more popular or better remembered than others. It also showed that while some lyrics are personally meaningful and others convey important messages, a number of lyrics are just relaxing, joyful, and entertaining without a deeper level of significance to them.
