    This book is about the subjects of most popular songs' lyrics in the years between 1950-1990.

    Popular Music Perspectives: Ideas, Themes, and Patterns in Contemporary Lyrics


    If I could find the similar one for the contemporary songs, I'll post it too.

    That book was antique. I'm sure its author would be so happy that someone reads it and gets acquainted with his thoughts and does not write such lyrics. He seemed very furious about the songs' themes.:rofl:

    Anyway, I'll not post such materials.:like:

    Original song by Charlotte Gainsbourg

    I'll burn an effigy out of the past
    Then our clothes catch fire as we dance
    And I wonder how long it would last
    Walking through a room full of broken glass

    Most of its chapters have been summed up in this post:
    But if you're still interested in spending your time to cordially loathe youth culture, I'll PM you.

    Unfortunately they have the lowest interest for the young purchasers. You can peddle them to their parents.

    @Herr Durr I'm sorry. Let's kiss and make up. It was just for fun and quite irreverent to 9/11.
    Popular scenes change so fast and as you see in the TOC, it's dead as a dodo and not much valid at present juncture. Writing lyrics individually and apart from the major songwriting societies is so frustrating without long-term prospects.:dunno:

    American Pop [4 volumes]: Popular Culture Decade by Decade


    Pop culture is the heart and soul of America, a unifying bridge across time bringing together generations of diverse backgrounds. Whether looking at the bright lights of the Jazz Age in the 1920s, the sexual and the rock-n-roll revolution of the 1960s, or the thriving social networking websites of today, each period in America's cultural history develops its own unique take on the qualities define our lives.American Pop: Popular Culture Decade by Decade is the most comprehensive reference on American popular culture by decade ever assembled, beginning with the 1900s up through today. The four-volume set examines the fascinating trends across decades and eras by shedding light on the experiences of Americans young and old, rich and poor, along with the influences of arts, entertainment, sports, and other cultural forces.

    Whether a pop culture aficionado or a student new to the topic, American Pop provides readers with an engaging look at American culture broken down into discrete segments, as well as analysis that gives insight into societal movements, trends, fads, and events that propelled the era and the nation. In-depth chapters trace the evolution of pop culture in 11 key categories: Key Events in American Life, Advertising, Architecture, Books, Newspapers, Magazines, and Comics, Entertainment, Fashion, Food, Music, Sports and Leisure Activities, Travel, and Visual Arts. Coverage includes: How Others See Us, Controversies and scandals, Social and cultural movements, Trends and fads, Key icons, and Classroom resources. Designed to meet the high demand for resources that help students study American history and culture by the decade, this one-stop reference provides readers with a broad and interdisciplinary overview of the numerous aspects of popular culture in our country. Thoughtful examination of our rich and often tumultuous popular history, illustrated with hundreds of historical and contemporary photos, makes this the ideal source to turn to for ready reference or research.

    Culture doesn't actually exist. Culture is just an 'idea' that we co-create and agree on as a boundary. How could you possibly spend your time -which is another imaginery concept anyway- loathing something that doesn't exist. And which 'youth culture' are you referring to? There are many, and they're all different.:)
