    Abstract

    Die Studie konzentriert sich auf die vermutete Wirkung einer einzigen musikalischen Besonderheit, nämlich die des Refrain des Songs She Loves You, produziert von den Beatles im Jahr 1963. Mit musikanalytischen Mitteln wird die spezifische Materialität einer Sekundreibung in dieser Klangform nachgewiesen. In einem zweiten Schritt wird argumentiert, dass derartige Reibungen in den 1960er Jahren auf vielfältige, kommerziell herstellbare Kommunikationsformen übertragen wurden, in Konsumausgaben umgesetzt wurden und so die Ausdifferenzierung einer eigenständigen, global auftretenden Jugendkultur ermöglichten. -- The study focuses on the supposed effect of an exceptional musical singularity, namely that of the chorus of the Beatles song She Loves You, produced in 1963. With the tools of musical analysis, the specific materiality of a grating major second in this form of sound is demonstrated. In a second step, it is argued that such gratings or frictions were transformed into and used by a variety of commercially producible forms of communication. They generated consumption expenses, and thus the differentiation of an independent, globally emerging youth culture.
