Audience Perception of Framed Music during Times of War
Unformatted Document Text:  Music During Times of War 13 You,” and “My Sister and I.” This information indicates that the audience did not maintain a strong desire to hear security/comfort songs in the time following the attack on Pearl Harbor. War on Terror Song Title Analysis Many of the songs released in the year surrounding the World Trade Center attack were classified into the same four common themes as did the songs during World War II, as indicated in Figure 2. The overwhelming majority of the songs were classified as reminiscence, followed by security/comfort songs, followed by love songs. There was hardly any patriotism framed in the music. <INSERT FIGURE 2 ABOUT HERE> Analysis of Figure 2 indicates that the number of reminiscence-themed had more drastic peaks in the six months following the World Trade Center attack. Prior to the attack, the highest peak was 40 percent of the popular songs as reminiscence-themed, and after the attack the highest peak was 60 percent. Although there were sharper peaks in the months following the attack, the average number of popular reminiscence songs slightly decreased to about 18 percent. Song titles included titles “If You’re Gone,” “Again,” and “Missing You.” This slight shift reflects that the audience still desired reminiscence-themed songs in popular music. Analysis of Figure 2 also indicates that the number of love-themed songs slightly shift after the attack on the World Trade Center. Prior to the attacks, the percentage of popular love songs averaged just below at 15 percent of the popular songs, whereas after the attacks, the average was 17 percent. This increase of popular love Songs indicated an audience desire for a musically framed love theme. Popular Love Song titles included “My Baby,” “U Got It Bad,” and “Someone to Call My Lover.” Further analysis of Figure 2 indicates that the number of popular patriotism songs on the Top Ten List after the World Trade Center attacks remained the same. There was only one sharp peak in the week of October 27, 2001. This song was Whitney Houston’s version of “The Star Spangled Banner.” This indicates that whatever preferences America had for patriotism-themed music following the World Trade Center attack were not strong enough to propel them into the Top Ten Lists.
