* Series/DoctorWho - One (lost) episode of First Doctor serial "The Celestial Toymaker", has Dodo and Steven come to a dance-floor, with the supposed prize of the TARDIS and possible escape waiting on the other side of the room. But as soon as they come into contact with the dance-floor, music starts to play and they find their feet magically compelled to dance. Steven and Dodo must find a way to overcome the magic power of the music long enough to make it to the other side of the floor and their chance at escape.

** [[PresidentEvil Harold Saxon]][=/=]TheMaster uses a downplayed example in "The Sound of Drums". He uses a worldwide network of satellites to project the four-tick drumbeat he hears onto the population, with their subconscious absorbing the rhythm and the messages that come with it, telling them to "Vote Saxon", and "Believe in Me". The Doctor explains that anything more powerful would be questioned, but something so subtle would go unnoticed by most.

* Before she escaped him, this is how [[EnslavedElves Sebille's]] master controlled her in ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'', in combination with her SlaveBrand. He would sing a song that would control her thoughts and make her do his bidding (specifically assassinating other elves). When she meets him again on The Nameless Isle, the first thing she does, after their rather tense "chat" in which he demonstrates his power over her, is stab him in the throat with her needle to keep him from singing.

* The Magical Mandolin from the ''WesternAnimation/DorothyAndTheWizardOfOz'' episode of the same name works this way. When played during the day, it causes people to dance merrily, but when played at night, it puts anyone who hears it in an obedient trance.

* As the page quote indicates, ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' features recurring villain Ember [=McLain=], a ghostly punk rocker with the ability to control people's emotions via a spectral guitar; she also [[SayMyName draws power from people chanting her name]], and so brainwashed teenagers into a frenzy in her first appearance. Later, she used a more traditional method--backmasked messages in records--to hypnotize the adults of Amity Park into abandoning their children and powering a fleet of ships for Youngblood the Pirate, another ghost.

Only Sam is not affected because of the Fenton Phones she wore the entire time.
