Just that. Name some songs that give you goose bumps every time you hear them.
A few for starters:

Massive Attack - teardrop
Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah
Moby - great escape

Your turn!


If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Was 'the heart asks pleasure' not the theme from The Piano? Composed by Michael Nyman?

yep, i am learning it on piano at the moment

i can play that on the piano... when i get to see a piano *sighs* i hate the fact that pianos are so big and bulky and take up so much space and are so expensive *cries* offtopic

but yes... it is another BEAUTIFUL song ubblove

Love the thread. Now I can go and look up all these beautiful songs I've never heard! You all have good taste, I can't think of many that aren't on the list..

Hey Mr. Tambourine Man by Bob Dylan, I think the lyrics are beautiful and poetic and it brings back some great memories.

Without You I'm Nothing by Placebo, deliciously melancholic.

And yes, just about anything by Lamb, Radiohead and Shpongle. Oh, and Tori Amos.

Nate, I am so with you on the Eels, love them... Fresh Kinda Feeling for a happy song...

Others I thought of today, old school stuff,

Peter Murphy, he has a gorgeous cd out with stripped back versions of his songs using violin, called alive just for love. Strange Kind of love is so haunting, and Marlene Deitrichs favorite poem... classic

Then, Cowboy Junkies, fabulous version of Blue Moon, and Misguided Angel...

Concrete Blonde, Joey

Having so much fun exploring the new stuff everyone is introducing!
