Summary/Abstract: The thesis is an attempt at establishing characteristics of pop song as a genre. The pop song is easy to indicate intuitively by almost every participant of culture, yet its encyclopaedic definitions are nothing more than general. The analyses are based on the textological concept of reality in which the text examined – pop song – is a multicode message. The main aspects in question are lyrics, the CD covers and booklets, video clips, concerts as well as the image of the artist itself. The distinctive features of the genre are defined on the basis of the mutual interference of particular pop subtexts and the general concept of cultural text. The research material for the thesis are the works of the band Ich Troje and Dorota Rabczewska aka Doda. As the thesis tries to capture the socially functional type of message, high‑order text appearing in particular productions, the compositions selected for the analysis are model representations of the phenomenon.
