DESOUSA, Diogo Araújo; MELO NETO, Othon Cardoso de  e  MENEZES, Roberta Camara Rocha. Who wrote this song?: Social influence on attitudes concerning artistic evaluations. Temas psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.2, pp. 427-441. ISSN 1413-389X.

This study examined people's reaction on the evaluation of song lyrics when they are led to believe the lyrics were written either by a national, regional or unknown singer and composer, as well as when the lyrics are associated to a male or female singer. 168 people with college degrees (84 male, 84 female) were asked to describe their attitudes towards fictitious lyrics in terms of how much they liked it, how well-written they judged it, and how interested they would be in listening to it. Results indicate that lyrics associated to national singers were more favorably evaluated than lyrics associated to regional singers and unknown singers, respectively. The singer's gender did not influence the judgments. These results are discussed in terms of some attitude and social influence models.
