    Default Alpha and Beta example

    I went through youtube a bit trying to search for examples of Alpha and Beta Dance Music. A song and video which somehow has "Alpha" or "Beta" spirit.

    I'd think this Cascada's song might capture something about Alpha and Alpha


    Then E-Type seems kind of Beta and to me. e.g. songs


    or


    (the last song practically starts around one minute into the video)

    What would Gamma and Delta dance songs look like? Do they even exist?

    Comments or better examples?

    Hmm..there a strong "bass" in the first song. I hope that doesn't suggest >...there was once a thread about that...Well anyways, this is a hard task as dance music is rarely if ever "serious" but instead showing caricatyres and making parodies. Ah but there still is the touchy feely parts in there. It is still Alpha to me (even if she girl ends up being ESFp...it is still Alpha damnit!)

    Hmm, I've compiled a mental list of these things I noticed. To get a "feeling" for things.
    Alpha

    Two ILE-s tributing alpha SF-s




    Just ILE



    LII



    I'd say two pinnacles of creative




    some more creative




    some SEI-s



    Perhaps ESE, not sure



    also not songs but an excellent examples of alpha, comedy:




    Beta:

    A couple of beta NF-s.




    And some raw . I fucking love it!



    Beta ST-s




    and they are just raw , can't describe it any other way


    And the best example of Fe - IEI, in my opinion, are the corrs



    and Ni – IEI, the cure



    Gamma:

    Gamma SF



    Gamma NT



    Delta,

    Delta ST




    A tribute to delta ST-s



    Delta NF





    And I'd say that rock in general is delta.

    And I agree that some artists can make stuff that is representative of a different quadra spirit. For example, I think alanis is a clear cut IEI.

    What? I would be curious to see you go through the types of the greats from the Golden Age of Rock (mid-'60s to mid-'70s).

    Ah, sorry, I don't listen to rock. I said that because one can practically type male IEE-s by that. If they are into rock + bohemian = IEE. And all delta people seem to listen to rock from my experience.

    And god, I don't know how I could've forgotten this, shania twain as the ESE (Shania Twain as an example of ESE and Bryan Adams as an example of LSE)

    Very interesting. I will get back those songs in a bit.

    In the meantime, are you (sneg) or anyone else able to place Linkin Park, and especially these two songs, somewhere in the socion.

    Cascada represents everything I despise about club culture.
    Ideas don't determine who's right. Power determines who's right. And I have the power. So I'm right.
