For those of you who are truly moved by music, I'm sure you've experienced at least one time when a certain part of a song comes to a climax or strikes such a unique harmony that goosebumps roll down your arms and you find yourself anticipating that moment throughout the entire duration of the song from then on out. I want to know what songs have that capability for each of you. It could be an emotional song, whose lyrics are extremely powerful, or maybe a heavier song that reaches an intensity that is absolutely breathtaking, or perhaps its a symphony that paints a wonderful picture in a very beautiful way. Whatever it is, share it with me here please. I have certain preferences for some types of music over others, but I'll try my best to listen with unbiased ears to all your suggestions if they're available online for free.

Thanks!

Hendrix - Little Wing especially some of the live versions, and no SRV or Clapton abominations.

I just found a youtube version so it was live, but definitely not the best quality. I have to admit I never got into Jimi Hendrix as much as I feel I should have, considering how monumental his presence has been to the evolution of rock and blues, so this was a new experience for me. After listening I can say that his guitar playing really emphasizes the emotion and intensity that goes into his songs, and its a shame that music has drifted away from that quality into a more formulaic approach. Unfortunately I listen to so little music from that era that I don't think I'm capable of appreciating it to the degree that many others are able to, at least how my ears are tuned at the moment, so no shivers personally. However, I can definitely understand how some of his work (that song in particular) could be capable of sending goosebumps down someone's spine. Especially with the amount of soul he puts into his playing. That's definitely the biggest thing I took away from that song, and again, I'm really bummed that that quality isn't practiced as much today.

edit: also thanks for sharing!

this is the version I usually think of, but for the life of me I can't remember where and when it was.




Angel is a great tune too - the demo is where it's at

That video was much better quality than the one I listened to. Both of those are good stuff!

I can think of several actually. Oddly the one which popped into my head was Whitney Houston's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner back in 1988, I think... Super Bowl, I believe.

She was simply gifted by the angels, with that clear, beautiful voice. My God, that woman could sing. Wishing her the best as she tries to rebuild her life.

classic anthem rendition

she nails this, too... amazing voice

The song that plays throughout the French film "Contempt". Scorsese also used it in the film "Casino", but it sounds better in the previous movie. It's chilling and its called Theme de Camille.

Pretty much any song from Once Upon a Time in America and a few songs from Once Upon a Time in the West. In case anyone doesn't know what these are, they're films. MUST watch films.

Down in a Hole by Alice in Chains

Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany's (no I'm not ***)

Only the Lonely by Frank Sinatra. His songs are usually fun rather than sad, but that one gives me chills for some reason.


I'll add more later.

Here's a quick list. I'm sure there are more, but these are the songs that I could come up with without having to put a whole lot of thought into. Some of them are pretty mainstream, and some are really obscure. I have the songs linked to a free version of the song to listen to (be it a YouTube video, MySpace page, etc).

Imagine - John Lennon

See You On The Other Side - Ozzy Osbourne

Exhibit 13 - Blue Man Group. This song was inspired by the events of September 11th. The BMG's primary practice studio is within sight of the WTC, and the documents played up on the screen are some of the debris that landed in front of their studio.

Everytime - Polarboy. Reminds me of an ex that I still miss terribly at times.

I Will Rest In You - Jaci Velasquez. The same ex used to sing this at church.

The Best Is Yet To Come - Metal Gear Solid soundtrack.

Con Te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye) - Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli. The first time I ever heard this song was in front of the Fountains at Bellagio. It gave me goosebumps then, and still does. Anytime I go to Vegas, I make it a point to watch the fountain shows and stay until this one plays.

To Zanarkand - Final Fantasy X

And last and absolutely not the least...

Here's to the Heroes - The Ten Tenors. I started listening to this song alot because they played it as they raised Yzerman's banner to the rafters. But a few months after that, a good childhood/high school friend of mine was killed in Iraq, and as I listened to this song after that I realized that it summed up my feelings about him. Godspeed Andrew, you are gone but not forgotten.

Transiberian Orchestra - Christmas Canon Rock
Jennifer Cellas' voice is just amazing. Notice her 2 arias (?) at 2:49 and then at 3:22. wow.
Not bad for a main floor camcorder vid.

Here's a cleaner performance of Christmas Canon Rock. Jennifer Cella really carries that note late in the song. *shivers*

Thanks for that Hendrix stuff guys. I've got an old copy of vinyl..."Hendrix in the West" I think. Has one of my favorite recordings of "Red House" on it. No one will ever compare with what Jimi was, when he was, what he was and what that means. No one. Ever.

I agree on Jennifer Cella's voice. Sad to see her not with TSO right now.

I always liked Daryl Pediford's voice from TSO. RIP the Prince of Peace
