Daniela Zorli, 2014, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Abstract: In English language there are more idioms "than you can shake a stick at". Idiomatic expressions can also be found in song lyrics. For foreign listener such idioms are hard to interpret, so I decided to focus my research on the idioms found in popular music. I collected 90 idioms out of 30 most popular songs. The idioms are interpreted and origin of each idiom is examined.

Aspects of evil in traditional murder ballads
Victor Kennedy, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: Traditional, or folk, ballads deal with common themes, often “leaping” over some details of plot and character while “lingering” on others, with the result that songs passed down orally through generations often appear in many variants. This paper will examine several songs from Martin Simpson’s 1976 debut album, Golden Vanity. I will trace their historical origins and argue that even some ancient ballads still speak to audiences today.
Keywords: American literature, ballads, music, song lyrics, Golden Vanity, Martin Simpson
