The power of repetition: repetitive lyrics in a song increase processing fluency and drive market success

Joseph C. Nunes, Andrea Ordanini, Francesca Valsesia
2015 Journal of Consumer Psychology  
An analysis of #1 hits reveals increased repetition decreases the time it takes to reach #1 and increases the odds of debuting in the Top 40.  ...  Study 1 is a controlled laboratory experiment demonstrating how lexical repetition, a feature of the stimulus and not the consequence of repeated exposures, results in greater processing fluency.  ...  Apart from chorus repetition, repetition of individual words is also an important feature of a song, and a text in general.  ...

Similar Segment Detection for Music Structure Analysis via Viterbi Algorithm

Yu Shiu, Hong Jeong, C Jay Kuo
2006 2006 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo  
The analysis of audio signals of popular and rock songs of the versechorus form to reconstruct its original musical structures is investigated in this work.  ...  We first compute the similarity degree between any two measures in a song based on selected features and represent these numbers in a measure-based similarity matrix.  ...  The technique can be used for music data analysis, indexing, retrieval and management. The music structure of many songs, including modern popular and rock songs, is of the verse-chorus form [1] .  ...

Leveraging repetition for improved automatic lyric transcription in popular music

Matt McVicar, Daniel P W Ellis, Masataka Goto
2014 2014 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP)  
However, one aspect of this problem which has yet to be exploited by researchers is that significant portions of the lyrics will be repeated throughout the song.  ...  Transcribing lyrics from musical audio is a challenging research problem which has not benefited from many advances made in the related field of automatic speech recognition, owing to the prevalent musical  ...  A natural analogue of this in ALR is to try averaging MFCC features which belong to the chorus of the song (assuming, as in [24] that the choruses are of equal duration) and feeding this to an ASR system  ...

Automatic structure detection for popular music

N.C. Maddage
2006 IEEE Multimedia  
Because the choruses of popular songs are typically prominent and are generally sections that are readily recognized or remembered, the users are most likely to hum a fragment of the chorus.  ...  For example, if two-thirds of the choruses are identified in a song, the accuracy of identifying the choruses is 66.66 percent. ❚ Second, we used the accuracy of the sections detected.  ...

DEEPCHORUS: A Hybrid Model of Multi-scale Convolution and Self-attention for Chorus Detection [article]

Qiqi He, Xiaoheng Sun, Yi Yu, Wei Li
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Chorus detection is a challenging problem in musical signal processing as the chorus often repeats more than once in popular songs, usually with rich instruments and complex rhythm forms.  ...  Most of the existing works focus on the receptiveness of chorus sections based on some explicit features such as loudness and occurrence frequency.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This work was supported by National Key R&D Program of China (2019YFC1711800) and NSFC (62171138).  ...

Characterizing Listener Engagement with Popular Songs Using Large-Scale Music Discovery Data

Blair Kaneshiro, Feng Ruan, Casey W. Baker, Jonathan Berger
2017 Frontiers in Psychology  
Our results reveal that the distribution of queries varies over the course of a song, and that salient musical events drive an increase in queries during a song.  ...  Furthermore, we find that the distribution of queries at the time of a song's release differs from the distribution following a song's peak and subsequent decline in popularity, possibly reflecting an  ...  A closer analysis of salient song parts reveals that the onset of vocals and the first occurrence of the chorus in particular drive an increase in queries.  ...
