    Songs that Remind you of a Cognitive Function, Quadra or Type

    While the other thread is for discussing resonance of songs with the theory, this thread is about YOU.  Post songs that resonate with you personally. Feel free to describe how you might see aspects of your type in this, or to ignore type altogether and just express yourself.

    Note: Feel free to post many songs, but try not to spam.  Please make one post containing many songs, rather than several subsequent posts all in a few days.

    1 . Halestorm – I am the Fire

    I’m sure, for anyone that has spoken to me for 5 minutes, you understand why this song resonates with me. 🙂 The phoenix rising from the flames and the overload of fire energy.

    There is another layer to this which may be less obvious, yet runs deeper: when I lost my voice, I felt like I lost my”self.”  I had to learn I am more than my voice, or any medium;  I am a vessel through which passion emerges. The fire comes from within.

    My Hearts been cauterized
    Hanging on to hope
    Shackled by the ghost
    Of what I once believed
    That I could never be
    What’s right in front of me?

    Spoiler:

    “I Am The Fire”

    Am I brave enough?
    Am I strong enough?
    To follow the desire
    That burns from within
    To push away my fear
    To stand where I’m afraid
    I am through with this
    Cuz I am more than this
    I promise to myself
    Alone and no one else
    My flame is rising higher

    I am the fire
    I am burning brighter
    Roaring like a storm
    And I am the one I’ve been waiting for
    Screaming like a siren
    Alive and burning brighter
    I am the fire

    I’ve been sacrificed
    My Hearts been cauterized
    Hanging on to hope
    Shackled by the ghost
    Of what I once believed
    That I could never be
    What’s right in front of me?

    I am the fire
    I am burning brighter
    Roaring like a storm
    And I am the one I’ve been waiting for
    Screaming like a siren
    Alive and burning brighter
    I am the fire

    I don’t believe I’ll fall from grace
    Won’t let the past decide my fate
    Leave forgiveness in my wake
    Take the love that I’ve embraced

    I promise to myself, me and no one else
    I am more than this
    I am the fire…

    I am the fire
    I am burning brighter
    Roaring like a storm
    And I am the one I’ve been waiting for
    Screaming like a siren
    Alive and burning brighter
    I am the fire
    I am the fire
    I am the fire
    I am the fire
    I am the fire
    I am the fire
    I am the fire

    2. Tea Party – Psychopomp.

    This song speaks to my deep fear of abandonment and rejection. The worst feeling is when someone ‘fades away’ and I don’t know why. I’d rather be told to my face, but this is usually not how love works. People have hidden dynamics, shame, fear… and the worst pain is when I’m in love and I can feel “him”  slipping from my grasp. I reach for him but all I feel is air where his body once was. Even if he’s right in front of me, his heart is elsewhere. And there I am with all my possessive burning for him, grasping at nothing, and not knowing why….

    Spoiler:

    You wanted this
    So sad to see
    The sweet decay
    Of ecstasy

    And you want it all
    And you want it all

    A frozen sun
    Would guide you there
    As shadows hide
    The deep despair

    And you want it all
    And you want it all

    I’ll give you something more
    And you’ll fade away
    One last kiss before
    You fade away

    So sleep tonight
    In idle dreams
    The pain will drown
    Your silent screams

    And you want it all
    And you want it all

    I’ll give you something more
    And you’ll fade away
    One last kiss before
    You fade away

    Lives you once adored
    Will fade away
    Lies you can’t ignore
    You soon repay

    As you fade away
    As you fade away
    As you fade away
    As you fade away
    And you’ll fade away

    3. Phantom of the Opera – Music of the Night

    I’ve related to this song so deeply since I was a child. I composed music since a young age, but I was never pretty and my personality was not very refined. I felt in my raw state, I could only be loved for my music. This proved itself true over and over, as one man after another fell in love with my creative inner world, but I always feared they would choose more doll-like, refined attractive women as their partner. To love me, a man must be drawn deep into my dark labyrinth. Only there can I be queen.

    I also resonate with this song because of the power of my passion for music. For many years I said Music was my path to God.

    Spoiler:

    Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
    Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
    Silently the senses abandon their defenses
    Helpless to resist the notes I write…
    For I compose the music of the night

    Slowly, gently, Night unfurls it’s Splendor
    Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
    Hearing is believing, music is deceiving
    Hard as lightening, soft as candlelight.
    Dare you trust the music of the night?

    Close your Eyes –
    For your eyes will only tell the truth
    And the truth isn’t what you want to see
    In the dark it is easy to pretend
    That the truth is what it ought to be.

    Softly, deftly music shall caress you
    Hear it, feel it secretly possess you
    Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
    In this darkness that you know you cannot fight
    The darkness of the music of the night

    Close your eyes –
    Start a journey through a strange new world
    Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
    Close your eyes –
    And let music set you free.
    Only then can you belong to me

    Floating, falling, Sweet Intoxication
    Touch me, trust me, savor each Sensation
    Let the dream begin, Let your darker side give in
    To the Power of the music that I write,
    The Power of the Music of the Night!

    You alone can make my song take flight
    Help me make the music of the night.

    4. Nine Inch Nails – The Becoming

    This song resonated most deeply during my most traumatic years, when I lost sight of hope and humanity, and felt like an animalistic beast, torn down to nothing but hunger, scraping myself dry to dig up any ounce of humanity or feeling that might remain.  I felt as if I were half robot, half beast. This is still a familiar cold sentiment that can overtake me when I’m angry and determined enough, yet the sound that ‘wants me dead’ is the call of the heart that once was.

    Spoiler:

    “The Becoming”

    I beat my machine it’s a part of me it’s inside of me
    I’m stuck in this dream it’s changing me I am becoming
    the me that you know he had some second thoughts
    he’s covered with scabs and he is broken and sore
    the me that you know doesn’t come around much
    that part of me isn’t here anymore
    all pain disappears it’s the nature of my circuitry
    drowns out all I hear there’s no escape from this my new consciousness
    the me that you know used to have feelings
    but the blood has stopped pumping and he’s left to decay
    the me that you know is now made up of wires
    and even when I’m right with you I’m so far away
    I can try to get away but I’ve strapped myself in
    I can try to scratch away the sound in my ears
    I can see it killing away all my bad parts
    I don’t want to listen but it’s all too clear

    hiding backwards inside of me I feel so unafraid
    Annie, hold a little tighter I might just slip away

    it won’t give up it wants me dead
    goddamn this noise inside my head

    5. Familiar Taste of Poison

    The lust, the hunger, the addiction…  this sounds like my entire life before I met my soulmate. I also love how she captures the battle between power and surrender. “I could fight this to the end, but maybe I don’t want to win…”

    Spoiler:

    “Familiar Taste Of Poison”

    Drink the wine, my darling, you said
    Take your time and consume all of it
    But the roses were only to drain my inspiration
    The promises were spoiled before they left your lips and…

    I breathe you in again just to feel you
    Underneath my skin, holding on to
    The sweet escape is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

    I tell myself that you’re no good for me
    I wish you well, but desire never leaves
    I could fight this til the end
    But maybe I don’t want to win

    I breathe you in again just to feel you
    Underneath my skin, holding on to
    The sweet escape is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

    I don’t wanna be saved, I don’t wanna be sober
    I want you on my mind, in my dreams behind these eyes
    And I won’t wake up, no not this time

    I breathe you in again just to feel you
    Underneath my skin, holding on to
    The sweet escape is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

    A familiar taste of poison
    A familiar taste
    Of poison

    This:

    There’s cocophany in the beginning, but it pulls together. It contains a brilliant mixture of light and dark, very foreboding, a feeling I’m well familiar with. It was extremely forward musically for its time, but it was also a harkening back to our primal elements. I relate to that; I feel out of step with time, having one foot forward and one foot back in the deep.

    (And I love Russian schools of ballet)

    Purr, I love this description. It doesn’t resonate with me personally because I feel very much resonance with what I perceive as ‘the rhythm of the world.’ For me, chaos is part of its order.

    But, we’ve talked at length about Se/Ni holism and being immersed in the world’s rhythm vs. Ne/Si ‘dancing on top of it.’

    I thought this was a beautiful and intriguing expression of the latter. 🙂

    Ok, I will try it too :

    This one is one of my favorite songs. I listen to it every time there is drama at the office or in my DnD group. 🙂

     

     

    It seems so peaceful, I don’t know if Se could be so serene (?), though the theme is pretty close to Se – Ni – fighting together, facing challenges, palmistry. :))

    Keeping the same battle theme but going more into hurt Fi…not that I relate to it now, but I think it’s representative of the lows of Fi :

     

     

    Since I also posted this on the chat yesterday and said I resonated with it, I will post it here too. I see it as Se & Fi. It’s about a mountain troll who is trying to seduce a man but is rejected because she is not a Christian…but a mountain troll. :))

     

     

    I would prefer to not go deeper into love songs but since it took us 5 days to type Leonard Cohen wrong, he deserves a mention 🙂 :

     

     

    Then, I also like ironic songs with dark themes, like this one. (this is so Pe…you post an intense love song and then you jump to something completely unromantic hoping the romantic one didn’t get noticed :))) )

     

     

    And keeping with the irony and the opposition to Je establishment :

     

     

    Hmm…I think they are enough for now and cover most of the genres I like and resonate with.

    Later edit :

    I suddenly realized Frank Turner’s point of view needs opposition. Seeing all the sights needs opposition. And this would be the opposing song :

     

    And another edit lol – this last song is pretty depressing. The movie is very sad. I don’t want to make people sad or look sad myself and blindness scares me, since I don’t have the best eye sight anyway.

    But I felt it was necessary because at some point wanting to experience everything can turn to greed. And in the end seeing /experiencing everything is not as important as processing it all in your mind, deciding what to keep and what to throw away and deciding who you are and what matters to you. I wanted to say this because the song sounds a bit suicidal. 🙂 But will itself, life force itself needs a point of counterbalance. (hm, that would be death…but Fi can’t represent death or can it? 🙂 I don’t get why I am connecting Fi with death. I will think about it without editing this post for the 3rd time. :)) )

    🙂

    I never “listen” to those songs on a daily basis. I do listen to them when I’m down and need to call out myself, because they remind me of myself, of my true self. Those songs are light and scattered just as I am. Also lyrics. They also remind of myself xD

    This song is a little closer to home. I wanted to share it because it contrasts with the “Ne dance on top elements.” It’s really anchored in the deep, the way Si is. The piano is bangin! The musical elements match the lyrics, and you can just drown in the song. I like to get lost under the water, mentally and physically. The singer is also very likely a polarized NeFi like myself.

    I’m copying from Youtube:
    This song concerns limiting ambition to stave off failure. Barnett explained to Uncut magazine: “I think that’s a natural defence mechanism, but then you also don’t get anywhere (I’m projecting). So I started challenging myself to do something. My ambition stems from my will to achieve something to keep me from going insane.”

    Lyrics:
    I was busy underwater seeing how long I could hold my breath.
    A drowning flower caught my eye and I had to come on up for air.
    Just because you’re older than me, doesn’t mean you have to be so condescending.
    I still see the same things that you see. I’m a little shady on my history.

    I am normally pretty forgiving, but only if you are.
    She’s so easy. She’s so easy. She’s so easy.

    I noticed you stopped talking to me.
    Now you’re talking to me all the time.
    Do you know you’re no good at listening?
    But you’re really good at saying everything on your mind.
    It must be tiring trying so hard to look like you’re not really trying at all.
    I guess if you’re afraid of aiming too high, then you’re not really gonna have too far to fall.

    I am normally pretty forgiving, but only if you are.
    She’s so easy. She’s so easy. She’s so easy.

    Climb aboard the wagon when it comes on through.
    Jump on your horse and tell me how’s the view.
    Look over my shoulder when I talk to you.
    Where’s the more important person in the room?

    Bera, Fi absolutely deals with death! I’ve talked a little bit about gamma art and death on the old forum. I think deltas deal with it a bit differently, with fewer visually disturbing elements. But I think if Fi is life, then it also constantly wrestles with death. Many high Fi use really morbid elements in their art. My sister (FiSe or SeFi) hated “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” but my daughter (FiNe) loved it. She’s sometimes attracted to really dark stuff.

    I really relate to the hunger of wanting to experience it all, but it manifests so differently in me. For me there’s a sense of not having enough lifetimes. I don’t psychically seize the world the direct way gammas do. It’s almost like I wouldn’t be satisfied. My daughter and I like this song, which I think showcases that hunger and insatiable jouissance.

    @tea – that song really touched me when you posted it in the chat ! <3

    I also feel I don’t have enough time to experience everything ! Aaand then, when I do, sometimes it feels too intense and I tend to shut it down ! Which really doesn’t make sense but it is what’s happening.

    About gamma Fi and delta Fi – I honestly feel more afraid of delta Fi death depictions than of the gamma ones. I will give two examples of singers we know for sure are gamma Fi and delta Fi and of popular songs (cause I can’t think of any other examples now :)) ).

     

    Gamma Fi

     

     

    This song is not scary or disturbing for me. It’s just a combination of sensuality and death and I see them as …naturally fitting together. It doesn’t feel as really being about death (at least to me)

     

    Delta Fi

     

     

    Now this feels as really being about death. And Aurora does not admit it and says it’s about home, where her parents are. Also, this is a recurring theme in her songs, I don’t think I’m just seeing it, I think it is there. A longing for the other side. No matter how hard I try to think it’s not about death, my impression is…it is about death. It feels as if you could float away any minute.

    Do you feel the same or do you see gamma Fi death as more..real…than delta Fi death?

    By the way, this discussion reminded me of another song & video I love <3 :

    @bera
    I know what you mean. Marilyn Manson is my favorite Delta artist, and he really gets down and dirty. My mind jumps to

    He is the Angel with the scabbed wings
    Hard-drug face, want to powder his nose
    He will deflower the freshest crop
    Dry up all the wombs with his rock and roll sores
    Rock and roll sores, rock and roll sores

     

    I love Manson but I definitely don’t find it necessary to get that descriptive about gross body parts in order to get my point across.

    I find Fi-Ni in Gamma leaves a lot more room for metaphor around feelings. For instance let’s take Tori Amos’s song about masturbating.

    And when my hand touches myself
    I can finally rest my head
    And when they say take of his body
    I think I’ll take from mine instead

    She gets her point across, but we don’t need to hear details about wetness and scabs and whatever like Deltas do. 😀

    @animal, yes, right, Marilyn Manson is also delta. 🙂 I honestly don’t love these…tainting songs, to be honest. I need more purity in music ! :))

    I also mentioned Aurelio Voltaire and I think he goes a bit in the macabre direction too but his songs are more fun/satirical, you get to feel amused and wicked but not dirty, if that makes sense. :)) I have no idea what his type is, looks like Pe lead, I have to watch an interview, I never did and I don’t have enough time to watch one now.

    Marilyn Manson is a bit too much for me. I can’t really resonate.

    You give me a bit of Tori Amos vibes ! You seem to have similar styles. <3 I should listen to her more !

    Hrafn, believe it or not, I’ve never seen Fantasia. I totally related to the video you posted. It had some of the same elements that I loved in from the cartoon The Little Prince. I do tend to think our origins cosmically, in terms of energetic and physical patterns. I’ve been drawn to that since I was a small kid.

    Animal, I’m actually not sure if I know many delta artists. Aurora makes me uncomfortable, like she’s showcasing a side of me that I keep private. Hehe. I’ve never gotten into Marilyn Manson, so I’m unfamiliar with him.

    Bera, I wonder if the difference between gamma and delta death Fi is that gamma death is in its immediate and bloody state (active process of dying or immediately after)  while delta death Fi is a little bit creepier-crawlier, with aspects of decay (passive). As I mentioned, my daughter (4) was really drawn to A Nightmare Before Christmas, while my sister and I were repulsed. I mean, shit falls off, man!

    I thought of Hozier as maybe Alpha, but Delta is possible too. Here are some Si decay elements form Hozier. That entire album is teeming with decay elements.

    In A Week:

    I have never known peace
    Like the damp grass that yields to me
    I have never known hunger
    Like these insects that feast on me
    A thousand teeth
    And yours among them, I know
    Our hungers appeased
    Our heartbeats becoming slow
    We lay here for years or for hours
    Thrown here or found
    To freeze or to thaw
    So long we become the flowers
    Two corpses we were
    Two corpses I saw
    And they’d find us in a week
    When the weather gets hot
    After the insects have made their claim
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    I have never known sleep
    Like the slumber that creeps to me
    I have never known color
    Like this morning reveals to me
    And you haven’t moved an inch
    Such that I would not know
    If you sleep always like this
    The flesh calmly going cold
    We lay here for years or for hours
    Your hand in my hand
    So still and discreet
    So long we become the flowers
    We’d feed well the land
    And worry the sheep
    And they’d find us in a week
    When the cattle show fear
    After the insects have made their claim
    After the foxes have known our taste
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    They’d find us in a week (Lay here for years or for hours)
    When the weather gets hot (So long we become the flowers)
    They’d find us in a week (Lay here for years or for hours)
    When the cattle shows fear (So long we become the flowers)
    And they’d find us in a week
    When the buzzards get loud
    After the insects have made their claim
    After the foxes have known our taste
    After the raven has had its say
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
    I’d be home with you
