Have you ever listened to a song, under the influence or not, that has given you the goosebumps or made you want to cry out of joy?

Asked by mass_pike4 (2096points) July 2nd, 2009

What songs give your ears an orgasm and make you feel in pure ecstasy? You know the type of song that just gives you such a good feeling that you feel like the song is playing inside you, causing you to be so into it, caught in the moment, and nothing else.

I love “Cortez the Killer” Dave Matthews & Warren Haynes…Haynes on the guitar is amazing in this song and it gives me the goosebumps. Also listening to Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds live at Farm Aid “So Damn Lucky” song got me too.

“Comfortably Numb” Pink Floyd…the solo in the end gets me every time

EDIT: One that pops into my head right now (and that I haven’t already linked to in other threads) is Gimme Shelter.

Seriously, we just don’t singers like Merry Clayton anymore.

Certain opera music does that for me, puts me over the top, blows me away. POW! Wipeout.

Goosebumps music is a definable category for me. If it doesn’t give me goosebumps, it’s not for me.

@jonsblond back in the day, we used to call that Acid Rock. Thanks for turning me onto a new song that reminds me of the good old days.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@Jeruba, that’s what I love about great composers like Holst, Wagner, and especially the more obscure ones, the ability to give me goosebumps. Opera not so much, but any music that gives a chill is damn cool in my book.

gailcalled's avatar

@fathippo: “definetley” has made my list of Infinite ways of misspelling definitely, Thanks.

fathippo's avatar

@gailcalled thats ok i guess(?) and sorry dude that is the word i always spell wrong however many times i try to imprint it in my mind

fathippo's avatar

@Grisaille i should maybe get out the habit of calling everyone man, male, female or whatever… =)

gailcalled's avatar

@fathippo: Try a substitute like “clearly” or “undeniably.” And you are in my Hall of Fame. You should see the variant spellings. People are really creative.

Tink's avatar

@fathippo Are you a dude?

fathippo's avatar

i’m a dude, but a female dude =)

Tink's avatar

@fathippo Ha I thought so =]

fathippo's avatar

@Tink1113 yeah it’s a good word so i dont see why only males should get it =D

fathippo's avatar

@gailcalled thankyou for your advice, and i feel quite privileged to be in your hall of fame =)
and im sure they can be quite creative with these misspellings as well…
