Sneak Up and Ruffle songs

Hey everyone. I have visited a few pow wows and greatly enjoyed them, but I have a question about the songs for Sneak Up and Ruffle dances. I know they both start with similar rolling beats, but is there a way to tell them apart (without looking to see what the dancers are doing) by just listening to them? Is there a difference in the structure of the song?

Sneak ups are Northern and Ruffles are Suuuuuuthern. Ruffles are fast and have 3 hard beats in the middle. Sneak ups have multiple honor beats/down beats and the third time through goes on and doesnt stop until after the 4th push up is finished.

That makes sense. Thanks for the help!
