They also consciously pick out the artists and songs where they can recognize themselves and their surroundings. The music also influences the way that the girls are thinking and talking about...

Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna kandidatuppsats är att undersöka hur tjejer från ett multikulturellt område i södra Sverige blir påverkade av den musik de lyssnar på. Uppsatsen är en kvalitativ studie, där enkäter, djupintervjuer, samt analys av de låttexter tjejerna uppgav att de lyssnar på, använts. Deltagarna i studien hittades genom olika ungdomshus i det område vi valde att utföra forskningen i. Efter att ha gått igenom vårt material med hänsyn till socialkonstruktivistiska teorier fann vi att tjejerna blir påverkade av den musik de lyssnar på. De väljer också medvetet ut artister och låtar som de kan känna igen sig själva och sin omgivning i. Musiken påverkar också hur tjejerna tänker och talar om sig själva och sin omgivning.
