What songs give you goosebumps when you listen to them?

Recommended Posts

Video Killed the Radio Star

"We can't rewind, we've gone too far."

Nice pop tune plus metaphoric of how the proliferation of mass visual technology came to overpower individual mental imaginations.

Yup, it's all about the performance. I'm sick of this song, but I've watched this performance at least a dozen times and get a lump in my throat every time.

As a side note "Dream Boat Annie"  was the first LP I brought with my own money.  I'm showing my age!

This song gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it.  Especially when the chorus and verse comes in. Absolutely beautiful!

I happen to like the show The Masked Singer , been watching it since it first aired  .

This video / song I'm posting  here also put a lump in my throat . Yet it is total opposite of your vid

It's pretty much all voice till the end ...the vocal inflections got me to lump up in my throat

I'm a sucker for Scandinavian epic symphonic metal. Always gets my heartrate up. This crew does it the better than anybody.

Without song - THE MILITARY BAND OF THE ROYAL SCOTS DRAGOON GUARDS - AMAZING GRACE (1972)

There's lots of versions but the original is still the best. https://youtu.be/KVjftQZ9jHA

If you dislike bagpipes there will not be any goosebumps compared to me that like them and turns into a snivelling idiot with goosebumps each time i listen to them. 🥰

 

For some reason bagpipes have always attracted me too, maybe it´s the rawness & a sense of "back to mankind´s roots", just maybe or because I was brought up with swedish folkmusic around me a lot of the time, or maybe I just Am a bit odd.

Apart from most of the already mentioned tunes Hendrix´ Bold as love (especially the outro solo), Where Were You(Jeff Beck), Nazareth´s Please Don't Judas Me to mention a few.

Ripples by Genesis - specifically the version on Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited II album with lead vocals by Amanda Lehmann. A truly incredible and completely perfect blend of menace and vulnerability and a massive improvement on the Phill Collins original.

Gives me spine tingles every time.

None right now.

It hasn't happened in a while but when it does, it does for only a little while then the goose bumps are over for that tune.

Oh Shenandoah always gets to me. Same with Waltzing Matilda - I think I have it associated with a war movie or something. Gets me blubbery every time.

In no particular order:

- Uli Roth's Sky Overture.

- Devin Townsend's Why.

- The '96 G3 version of Steve Vai's For The Love of God.

- Faith No More's cover of This Guy is In Love With You.

- The final solo on Dream Theater's Octavarium.

- Tommy Emmanuel's Old Photographs.

- Jon Gomm's Passionflower.

- Racer X's Viking Kong.

- Symphony X's Charon

- Joe Satriani's Premonition

- Camel's Dust and Dreams, Harbour of Tears and Rajaz.

- Gentle Giant's Three Friends.

- Genesis' Cinema Show.

That's what comes to mind.

Looks like Bruno's a fan of pop-rock, ya?  😁😜

(That list is definitely reminding me of some stuff to play over the next week! 🙂👍)
