  • Changing Their Tune
  • Teens Musical Tastes Influenced by Peers

By Paul Asay Posted March 30, 2010

What Happened
  • For teens, few things are more important than
    music. Whether its Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga or Lil
    Wayne, musicians have a knack for speaking to the
    essence of youth, and songs can often convey a
    teens mood or outlook better than a book full of
    words.

3
What Happened
  • So it may surprise some people that teens
    sometimes dont much like the music they download
    or buy. In fact, it can really stress them out.

4
What Happened
  • Researchers recently studied a horde of youth
    between the ages of 12 and 17, forcing them to
    listen to music while scientists scanned their
    brains. The scientists played musical clips by
    no-name artists and asked them to rate the tunes.
    Then they had the teens listen to the same clips
    againthis time giving half of them information
    about how popular the music was, according to
    their peers on MySpace.

What Happened
  • Many of the teens changed their opinions on a
    second listen, and thats natural Some music
    just grows on you. However, teens who knew
    something about the songs popularity were far
    more likely to change their tune than those who
    didnt 79 percent of those teens altered their
    opinion to conform to the majority opinion.
  • In other words, if lots of people seemed to like
    the song, the teens decided they did, too.

6
What Happened
  • The brainwaves of these teens showed heightened
    activity in regions of the mind that deal with
    stress and pain. When youth thought they were out
    of step with their peers, it bothered
    themsometimes a lot. So they changed their minds
    to feel better.

7
What Happened
  • Its true that few things are more important to
    teens than music, but one of those thingsat
    least for some youthis what other teens think of
    their musical taste.

8
Talk About It
  • What kind of music do you listen to?
  • What kind of music do your friends like?
  • Is it pretty much the same?
  • Where do you differ?

9
Talk About It
  • Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes
    to music?
  • Stuff that you like to listen to but wouldnt
    necessarily admit?

10
Talk About It
  • A little peer pressure actually can be a good
    thingif you have good friends. We count on our
    friends to tell us whats socially acceptable,
    which can help us grow up and fit into society
    better.
  • Can you think of a time in your life when you
    learned something about how to behave from your
    friends?

11
Talk About It
  • We all know, though, that peer pressure can get
    way out of hand.
  • When is peer pressure bad?
  • Have you seen people pressured to make bad
    decisions by their friends?
  • Were there consequences?

12
What the Bible Says
  • He who walks with the wise grows wise,
  • But a companion of fools suffers harm.
  • Pr. 1320
  • Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not
    both fall into a pit?
  • Luke 639

13
What the Bible Says
  • Blessed is the man
  • who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
  • or stand in the way of sinners
  • or sit in the seat of mockers.
  • But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
  • and on his law he meditates day and night.
  • Ps. 11-2
