Questions related to Rock Music
To date, there is an extensive and quite evidence-based literature on the negative impact of rock music (primarily hard rock) on the natural biorhythms of the human heart, brain and other organs. it's easy to get a list of hundreds of papers on the subject by googling keywords like rock-music and heart arrhythmia or similar.
An analysis of these publications shows that the harm of hard rock to people's health, in any case, is no less than the harm of smoking. So isn't it time to extend to heavy rock the same bans that apply to smoking in public places?
I would really like to find out the impact of music with lyrics on language competency as an academic research, because I myself as an English instructor and TEFL MA student have always been impressed and inspired by music, specially rock music in both my language learning and language teaching processes.
I need to analyse the music structure of a haevy metal song, is there any "protocol" to follow, for best and more objective analysis? I am a biologist and in my PhD course I want to study the impact of rock in cell metabolism.
Thanks for helping me.
