I am a big listener to classical/soundtrack music. Most of it is instrumental stuff, and some of it is such powerful and moving material that it gives me goosebumps. Is anyone else like this? Heres some of the stuff that I really like:
- Almost anything from the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks
- Requiem For a Dream
- Guardian Suite (by Trevor Rabin.)
Anyone else got any?
some songs do give me goosebumps as well.
the other day in the car the song 'dream on' by aerosmith was on, definitely gave me a chill (in a good way) and goosebumps.
- claire de lune ...every time
- montague and capulet (from romeo and julliet)
- misererie (spelling?)
- gymnopedie   ; and many, many more , horrible feeling i've forgotten something really important
loving the pride and prejudice soundtrack at the mo. Anyone heard/played it?
Styx, Come Sail Away...it has instantaneous nostagia for me, I think it was the song they played at my high school graduation in 1983 and I recall myself as the 17 year old naive girl with very high hopes and dreams, before I experienced trauma and stife and life. So that song will either evoke goosebumps or tears, usually both. I'm weeping right now, I just read the lyrics online, its really weird isn't it?
Other songs that will evoke either goosebumps or some other non-voluntary reaction, like euphoria:
Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hEgS25lUpE
Rock the Boat - The Hues Corporation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaob6rQPKyc
Just about all the serious stuff that crawled out of the Psychopathic Records label gives me goosebumps. Thy Unveiling, and The People, both by ICP, in particular.
and wish you were here, but for different reasons ;-)
Carl Off - O Fortuna
definitely wish you were here...and fast car (tracy chapman), three little birds (marley), dear chicago (ryan adams), going to california (led zeppelin)
that is an awesome cover...and i love the moondance album (although my favorite is "and it stoned me")
i second everything fruit_fairy said. also, reverie by debussey, anything by chopin, lizst's liebestraum, and various other piano pieces.
Nessun Dorma - particularly if done by Pavarotti, sometimes moves me to tears
Ave Maria - instrumental mostly, but with vocals by any classical opera singer it's simply sublime
I really like the soundtrack from "Last of the Mohicans", particularly the track called "The Kiss"
Don't laugh... but Conway Twitty's "It's only Make Believe" used to creep me out. Now it just gives me a chill, but still... haha.
"First Arabesque" by Debussey, and "Raindrop Sonata" by Chopin always give me chills. Love to play them, too.
And if I can be just a bit cheesy, "Seasons of Love" from Rent does it for me. And the song that the little girl sings in Les Miserables? Is it called "Castle in the Air?" Definitely chills.
E-nomine - Deine Welt
any song by jeff buckley
Kate bush, wuthering heights,
Hybrid - Finished Symphony (soundtrack edit) : Only a certain version of the song gives me goosebumps.
