There is a positive relationship between song type and location within a 3d space (with x,y,z axes of formality, religiosity, and arousal).
This result was statistically significant for three of the four song types (dance: 66%; healing: 74%; love: 62%; ps < .001) though not for lullabies (39%, p = .425)
