    his "never gonna give you up" is mentioned in the LIE domain.

    I was thinking Caregiver for him, but at the same time, in his interviews he doesn't really seem Fe.

    He is mentioned in the LIE domain.


    I get a Te-Fi vibe from him.
    I like his music.
    When I first saw him I was like "It looks like some hokey ESTj singing straight love songs".
    All his songs seem to be uncreative and direct, and a lot of his lyrics seem to specify talking to some leading type.

    "I know you're too shy"...

    Rick Astley

    She wants to dance
    She wants to dance with me
    Oh yeah (dance with me)

    There's a girl I've been waiting to see
    And I really get the feeling that she likes me
    'Cos she said so, but not in so many words
    I've got to tell you what I've heard

    She don't want no wild romance
    When she's with me she only wants to dance

    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll hold her so tight next to me
    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll let her be what she wants to be

    Now I know I've been out of touch
    And I never meant to hurt my baby oh so much
    'Cos I love her and I think she love me
    And that's the way it's got to be

    When we're together we never fight
    We've got better things to do tonight

    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll hold her so tight next to me
    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll let her be what she wants to be

    She wants to dance
    She wants to dance

    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll hold her so tight next to me
    She wants to dance with me
    'Cos I'll let her be what she wants to be

    (Stock/Aitken/Waterman)

    If there's anything you need
    All you have to do is say
    You know you satisfy everything in me
    We shouldn't waste a single day

    So don't stop me falling
    It's destiny calling
    A power I just can't deny
    It's never changing
    Can't you hear me, I'm saying
    I want you for the rest of my life

    chorus:
    Together forever and never to past
    Together forever we two
    And don't you know
    I would move heaven and earth
    To be together forever with you

    If they ever get you down
    There's always something I can do
    Because I wouldn't ever wanna see you frown
    I'll always do what's best for you

    There ain't no mistaking
    It's true love we're making
    Something to last for all time
    It's never changing
    Can't you hear me, I'm saying
    I want you for the rest of my life

    "Cry for Help"
    Shes taken my time.
    Convince me shes fine.
    But when she leaves Im not so sure.
    Its always the same.
    Shes playing her game.
    And when she goes I feel to blame.
    Why wont she say she needs me?
    I know shes not as strong as she seems.

    Why dont I see her cry for help?
    Why dont I feel her cry for help?
    Why dont I hear her cry for help?

    I wandered around
    The streets of this town
    Trying to find sense of it all.
    The rain on my face,
    It covers the trace
    Of all the tears Id had to waste.
    Why must we hide emotions?
    Why must we never break down and cry?

    All that I need is to cry for help.
    Somebody please hear me cry for help.
    All I can do is cry for help.

    No need to feel ashamed. release the pain. cry for help.

    Cry for help is all I need.
    All I need is a cry for help.
    Cry for help is all I need.
    All I need is a cry for help.

    Why must we hide emotions?
    Why cant we ever break down and cry?
    All that I need is to cry for help.
    I will be there when you cry for help.
    Why dont I hear her cry for help?

    All that I need is to cry for help.
    Somebody please hear me cry for help.
    All I can do is cry for help.

    All that I need is to cry for help.
    I will be there when you cry for help.
    Is it so hard to cry for help?

    (cry for help is all I need.) no need to feel ashamed.
    (all I need is a cry for help.) come on and release the pain.
    (cry for help is all I need.) put your trust in me.
    (all I need is a cry for help.) my love is gonna set you free.

    Woooooooooooooo.

    Yeah his face is does seem intuitive or something....hmm

    Perhaps. I he seems Te/Fi with Si

    Maybe he's an INFj?

    Rick sang in a local church choir but his love for the drums inevitably found him in local bands by his early teenage years. On leaving a band named "Give Way" he joined "FBI", and it was here that recognition of Rick's talents began take an upward curve.

    Besides Rick, a few of his school friends completed the five members of FBI. They began gigging in pubs and became noted for being one of the only bands in the area to be writing and performing their own material. Realising they had a good thing going, FBI sought management. Under the guidance of Dave Warwick and Tony Graham, they continued with their pub gigs but in addition, managed to land slots in clubs doing covers of songs that were around at the time. FBI expanded their fan base and developed into a well-known band locally.

    When FBI's lead singer left the band, Rick volunteered to take over the role. It coincided well with Dave and Tony's invitation to record producer Pete Waterman to come and see FBI's act. Waterman had liked what he'd heard but the offer was exclusively for Rick and not the band. Rick was very much a band member. Dedicated to FBI, he showed his loyalty by refusing the offer.

    One year on, it was apparent to everyone, including FBI, that Rick's talents were shining through the band. Realising that they were holding him back and feeling guilty that Rick had missed out on the opportunity of a life-time, Rick had Dave & Tony contact Pete Waterman and Rick was soon destined for London, home to PWL Studios.

    I walked into a drug store today to get my usual, and I heard Rick today. I had to start dancing a little bit. I said "It's Rick Astley time" and a few people looked and acknowledged that it was so.

    Never gonna give you up.

    Your views on IEIs appear to be kinda rough, and you need to understand our complexity more. That song is not very romantic/lovey at all, despite what he's singing, I'm just not really feeling the emotional (romantic) impact of the music. There is no real connection with the audience, that's why it's a good 'gotcha' vid. It's widely used for internet pranks too... and since the IEI is versatile and dominant in our ability to understand romantic concepts, I don't think you could effectively do that with an IEI's music. He says 'You're shy' very crude-like, which is not what an IEI would do at all since we're sensitive to the intricacities (sp? lol) of what it actually means to in fact, be shy. It's like it's so bad because he can't even effectively realize the ridiculousness and anti-romanticism of what he's actually signing about. Is it function related or just some weird 80s thing? Hell if I know.

    Of course what he's performing doesn't necessarily reflect anything about his personality, but his personality as a performer makes any IEI-ness fall flat to me.

    It's a bit too... upbeat for an IEI in a way that I cannot explain. Gamma or Alpha SF is much more likely.

    Do you have any other info on his private/personal life? I've tried to research shit but couldn't find any.

    The amount of people being typed IEI lately is pathetic. It's not even funny anymore.

    Great post Mimosa.

    Hmm. A Beta Romantic song (It's upbeat but still very romantic to me) is 'Don't Let it Go to Your Head' by Fefe Dobson. Or maybe I'm just biased to her music. Paris Hilton 'Stars are Blind' is also extremely romantic to me lol. (Despite what people say about her personally that song definitely rocks.)

    It's romantic because it's constantly striving for a better love, while remaining that bittersweet tension. 'Never gonna give you up' is too smothering and isn't something an IEI would do AT ALL. =D See we know our IEI shit.

    Romanticsm is like the beauty of pulling away and pulling toward. (And being kinda okay with not sure mentally what you really need yet - I think that's where the SLE's Se comes along.) It's being terrified that what you're really feeling is 'too good to be true' so you kinda observe it from a distance.

    It's having somebody but not really ever having them. 'I had a porcelain doll, I held onto it too tightly' *That* is romantic. 'Never gonna give you up' is actually anti-romantic. Through the absence and being shy of love, you begin to see what love really is, how much you really think/meant to each person. That is one of the many reasons why IEIs are the masters of love and romance above all the other types.

    Oh, fun song. Did he even write that himself?

    "Never Gonna Give You Up" is a dance-pop song originally performed by Rick Astley. It was released as a single from Astley's multi-million selling debut album, Whenever You Need Somebody, which was written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman.
    Using the lyrics of a song he didn't write isn't probably the best typing method.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    I see a lot of Alpha in this. Both my ESE mother and my ILE husband are keen on promising "safety". "Commitment" is important for them. For me "commitment" and "love" are impossible to unite, somehow. I want REAL love. Unconditional love. No promises. No safety net. Just the real thing.
    Actually, I think what you're talking about is Fi. Most of his lyrics are like that - kind of cheesy and sentimental. This is a pretty good interview:

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2y69umHpdk[/ame]

    He talks about being a "real dad", being there for his kids, etc., all Fi topics. I would guess EII, or possibly ESI.

    well I can't stand Rick Astley. We used to make so much fun of him for this song. Anyway, I certainly don't think he's IEI. that kinda made me gag. LOL Oh well.

    And Mimosa, I like what you said about love and commitment. Real love. No safety net. The real thing. Ah! I know it sounds idealistic but that's because it is! I could say more here but I won't.
