* ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' has [[AIIsACrapShoot Virtual Idol]] Sharon Apple paralyze an entire world with her hit single, 'Information High'. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMczRJh_OeI Listening to it]], you can kinda' feel how it might work. It's strangely hypnotic, especially when combined with her lightshow.

** In ''Anime/MacrossDelta'', it's revealed that those infected by [[HatePlague Var Syndrome]] are [[spoiler:susceptible to being mind-controlled by the songs of Windermere's Wind Singer; in fact, Windermere is deliberately spreading Var for this very reason]].

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': The [[Myth/SlavicMythology rusalka’s]] song in the side story “The Incredibly Thrilling Investigation of Storm Kicker”, which hypnotizes ponies and turns them into thralls under the rusalka’s control.



* ''Film/{{Help}}'': In an scene dropped from the final movie, Music/TheBeatles, at an acting school, are put into a trance by droning music played by Clang and his thugs. A scene that was used has them trying again, all crammed in a phone booth calling the band up while they're in Scotland Yard. Clang intones "Go...to...the...''window!''...Go...to...the...''window!''"

Music has great power. It can [[MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast Soothe The Savage Beast]], it can inspire courage in the hearts of men with a [[MusicToInvadePolandTo stirring march]], or bring tears to your eyes with an eulogy of loss and longing. Is it really such a stretch to assume that, with the right resonance, the right voice, the right instrument, it can fully control the very hearts of man?

* The Dazzlings from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' naturally employ this, what with being a trio of {{Enthralling Siren}}s and all. They mostly used it as a HatePlague, but the influence they exert on Principal Celestia and Vice-Principal Luna heavily implies that they're capable of more traditional mind control as well.

* The Parapara brothers from ''Anime/DragonballGT'' use a stereo to cause their opponents to uncontrollably mimic their dancing, leaving them open to attack.
* ''Anime/KiddyGrade'' features one instance where a song is used to broadcast a mind-control signal.



* Brook from ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays music that can influence the actions of others by "reaching to their very souls". This is seen when he causes an entire stadium to riot against the Marines.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' has a CanonForeigner named TheMusicMeister, whose singing hits a certain frequency to mind control anyone who hears it. Another effect: those who fall under his spell [[MusicalEpisode burst into song themselves]]. {{Batman}} is able to create a device which dampens its power, though.

This is the preferred method of the EnthrallingSiren, and indeed pops up a lot in mythology. The EvilDiva also has a good chance of utilizing her music to enslave her fans. A SnakeCharmer often uses this kind of music as well. Subtrope of MagicMusic. Inverted by the TheMusicMeister who uses MindManipulation to make music.

He gets a whole crowd of adults and [[{{Sidekick}} Mary]] under his spell, forcing [[KidHero Billy]], who temporarily has to avoid [[HenshinHero turning into]] [[SuperPoweredAlterEgo Captain Marvel]], to figure out how to stop him alone.
