Background information: Today, the more Vietnam develops, the higher the standard of living is. They are cared by the government so they live in better conditions and more stable lives than before. Now it is not enough to “Ăn no mặc ấm” (just enough for living) as Ho Chi minh president desired. As they can earn more money, they begin to care for more and more things in their life such as good accommodations, good meals, beautiful clothes, etc. But it’s only about their material life. How about their mental life? In fact, they concern about their spiritual life more than their material one. Many people think that they worked hard all day so they should take a rest or relax. A question is raised “how to relax in this modern life?” entertainment is necessary for working people but also for others especially young people . Moreover, modern young people are very active and dynamic. They are very adaptable too. Hence, in this changing world, they need more than one means to serve their demand for entertainment. Besides many different entertainments such as game, magazine or movie…, the youth seems to care about music the most. In other words, music becomes an important part in young people’s life. Seeing the need of youngsters- the group of audience has the most difficult standard with music, many kinds of music stream are increased, music cover is a typical example. 2. Rationale: Nowadays, finding covered songs are so easy, they appear in most CDs of most singers. “Music cover” is not a new concept. Most singers choose to cover a song of other musicians or singers to make their home “music market” more plentiful. They have reached high position in music class-list. But in fact, there are some people don’t understand exactly definition of “music cover”. There are different attitudes which are followed, some people think the stream is detrimental to the Vietnamese music, someone admits that they like and support music cover because of its diversity, and the others don’t care at all. So what is an exactly concept of “music cover”? To have a clear concept about this issue, the study was done. It gives some reasons for people’s answers. The paper is finished by researching young audience who are usually the fastest to update new music and are the most objective examiners. 5 Student: Ngo Thi Thuy Ha Website: http://www.docs.vn Email : lienhe@docs.vn Tel : 0918.775.368 With limited exposure to all types of students in other university, NEU students are the perfect entity to take the research. The study illustrates the effects of music cover and NEU students’ behaviors towards the spread of the music cover trend at the moment. In the paper, there are three important points which are mentioned: (1) The real definition of music cover and NEU’s students’ knowledge about the definition (2) The influence of music covers on Vietnamese music; (3) The thoughts of NEU’s students about music cover in Vietnam. 3. Scope of the study: In this paper, it is impossible to mention a large number of audiences. Although depending on each person, he/she has a personal opinion about the issue. For instance, there is someone who agrees with it, or the others think it is completely untruthful. However, as we have just said above, the youth are usually the fastest to update with new stream of music. Therefore, the study is concentrated on researching a part of them – students. Because of limited time, it deals only with NEU’s student’s thoughts. 4. Research question: 1. What’s “music cover” and how do NEU’s students define it? 2. How does music cover influence Vietnamese music? 3. What do NEU’s students think about music cover in Vietnam? 5.

Literature Review: Recently, “music cover” becomes popular in Vietnamese music market. It is not a strange word but it can be a new problem for all people to discuss, even research. Because of it, there were many previous topics which researched about the stream of music cover in Vietnam. Each research has different strong points and weak points. In the first place, we have to take Berne Convention into consideration. Hence, “Under the Convention, copyrights for creative works are automatically in force upon their creation without being asserted or declared. An author need not "register" or "apply for" a copyright in countries adhering to the Convention. As soon as a work is "fixed", that is, written or recorded on some physical medium, its author is automatically entitled to all copyrights in the work and to any derivative works, unless and until the author explicitly disclaims them or until the copyright expires. Foreign authors are given the same rights and privileges to copyrighted material as domestic authors in any country that signed the Convention”. That means, people all around the world pay much attention to music cover. They mainly agree with the regulations in that Convention because it can protect the intellectual property for musicians all over the world. Personally the author agrees with the Convention because it is beneficial for both composer and the singers who cover music of other musicians. Music cover receives some different opinions. For instance, on http://www.dep.com.vn/ , the writer didn’t criticize or denigrate the stream, however, he admitted that “ . foreign songs have been covered that will have influenced on audiences than Vietnamese song”, he also said “…music cover is simple a stream, it will be no longer to have quietly been weakened in Vietnamese music…” As the researcher understands that the writer is an advocate to music cover. In terms of the development of music in Vietnam, I share the same thoughts with him. Moreover , some opinion exhibit to sympathize with music cover such as there are a title “ Covering foreign music shouldn’t be blamed” on http://www.maivoo.com, and have also got much regard. 8 Student: Ngo Thi Thuy Ha Website: http://www.docs.vn Email : lienhe@docs.vn Tel : 0918.775.368 II. Major findings: 1. The way NEU student define “music cover” and general definition of it 1.1. The way NEU students define “Music cover”. Sometimes, we listen to music and suddenly realize that the song you're listening to has a similar melody to a well-known foreign song. You are very surprised and don’t understand the song you're listening to is “music copy” or “music cover”. Even you may not know exactly the definition of both these terms. Although young people today listen to music regularly, they are not very interested in “who composed the song”, or “where the song comes from?” During the survey, some people think that “music cover” is simply the foreign music track and Vietnamese lyrics. Others think it’s the song was written Vietnamese lyrics based on copying foreign music or they believe: these songs were agreed to have Vietnamese lyrics by musicians who write the original songs, and they have registered copyright. And most of people don’t understand much about this concept. 9 Student: Ngo Thi Thuy Ha Website: http://www.docs.vn Email : lienhe@docs.vn Tel : 0918.775.368 Chart 1: the understanding of “Music cover” 1.2. The real definition of “Music cover”. To explain and make everybody understand clearly about “music cover” and “music copy”, the report researched Bern Convention and found that: “Music cover” appears after the 26 th , October 2004, since the Berne Convention into force in Vietnam. Berne convention-the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, is an international agreement governing copyright, which was first accepted in Berne, Switzerland in 1886. “Under the Convention, copyrights for creative works are automatically in force upon their creation without being asserted or declared. An author need not "register" or "apply for" a copyright in countries adhering to the Convention. As soon as a work is "fixed", that is, written or recorded on some physical medium, its author is automatically entitled to all copyrights in the work and to any derivative works, unless and until the author explicitly disclaims them or until the copyright expires. Foreign authors are given the same rights and privileges to copyrighted material as domestic authors in any country that signed the Convention.” (Wikipedia). So, if Vietnamese musicians want to cover a song, they must have agreement by musician who compose the original song, 10 Student: Ngo Thi Thuy Ha [...]... popular And there are many different opinions about that In the world, the covering music is very normal, but the singers or bands have to have permission of the artist Covering music is an art and the lyric writer is a person, who made the song newer, brings the song back to the listener with the whole new style and the performance is completely like remaining the life for the song The cover music in Vietnam. .. so they make original songs lose meanings When audience can understand the lyrics of the original song and they make comparison, they mainly recognize that major of covered songs are not as good as the original ones Hence, they may look down on the musicians, singers and even the music market in Vietnam 3 Evaluation and attitude of NEU student about Music cover Nowadays, in Vietnam, the cover music. .. 2: the good effects of Music cover 2.1.1 Enrich Vietnamese music and give people more choices Music cover influence very well to Vietnamese music Follow the survey paper, there are 50% say that: Music cover contributed to make music market of Vietnam richer or more abundant Several years up to now, Music cover suddenly break out as a tendency Most of musicians and singers cover and sing a lot of. .. from 3 effects mentioned, only 3% NEU students have different opinions Follow them, Music cover help people who don’t know foreign languages but want to understand meaning of that song can choose to hear covered song 2.2 Bad effects Chart 3: The bad sides of Music cover 2.2.1 Lessen the creativeness of both singers and musicians Music cover has bad influence to Vietnamese music The research finds that... authors and then they said those are their songs Furthermore a lot of people don’t really understand about Music cover, they just think all songs which were rewritten based on foreign melodies are music copy For that reason, Music cover was understood as Music copy and there are 25% think so Only 3% think Music cover influence to Vietnamese music on different aspects For example, most of songs when were covered... lazy in composing new songs, they can make music market go down even “die” There are 35% of students think the same 2.2.2 Lose the belief of Vietnamese audience on our own music In addition, as covered songs overwhelm Vietnamese music market, viewers and listeners are often confused between Music copies” and Music cover In fact, a lot of singers “borrow” foreign songs without “permission” of authors... that they know, and the answers are: 53% choose pop music; 13% choose rock music; 11% choose hip-hop music; 13% choose rap music and only 10% choose all of these genres Based on the results, seeing that young people in Vietnam in general and especially NEU’s students in particular often listen to pop music Furthermore this study find out on the internet, young people today also like listening pop music. ..Website: http://www.docs.vn Email : lienhe@docs.vn Tel : 0918.775.368 and have registered the copyright, while music copy” is the term that the songs do not comply with the provisions above That’s illegal 1.3 Some kinds of music are usually chosen to cover Besides it, in order to understand clearly about knowledge of students of Music cover, the author also asked them about the categories "music covers"... cover music in Vietnam is the kind of music, which has Vietnamese lyric based on the melody of the song of other country Therefore, some people think the melody is stolen For that result, they don’t like this music There are some familiar faces, which usually cover music in Vietnam They are Bao Thy, Tra My, Minh Hang, Hoang Hai… Although cover music is not good but in Vietnam, it is 14 Student: Ngo Thi... when music cover appears as a tendency led to the changes in music market of Vietnam The biggest 13 Student: Ngo Thi Thuy Ha Website: http://www.docs.vn Email : lienhe@docs.vn Tel : 0918.775.368 effect is that it makes most of singers just insist on searching successful original songs from other countries and they only would like to sing covered songs They are indifferent with Vietnamese songs and
