by Ruth, Nicolas, Ph.D., Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universitaet Wuerzburg (Germany), 2018, 131; 10971999
Abstract (Summary)

Many artists of popular music genres are committed to charity and prosocial work. Often we find references to prosocial behavior in the lyrics of those musicians. However, most research so far examined only negative and not positive effects of popular music. That is why this paper-based thesis investigated the representation of prosocial behavior in songs and the effects of music with prosocial lyrics. The synopsis defines fundamental concepts and gives an overview of the state of research and relevant theoretical approaches. Finally, it ends with a discussion of the published studies and an outlook for future research.
