    When I Really Listen

    When it hits a nerve (and when I'm actually absorbing and listening to the lyrics with my heart)--Oohhh the shivers run down my spine and goosebumps show up on my arms and body.  I had that happen quite a few times yesterday while I was doing someone's homework and listening...

    You Feel It From Your Head To Your Toes

    I love when a song hits you in such a way that you feel it with your whole body. It makes your spine tingle, your toes curl and your hair seem to buzz. Sometimes its not a whole song. Sometimes its just a verse, one line or even just a chord that hits just right. Maybe it only...

    Tingles and Goosebumps

    The Little Twist

    I love that moment in a song I've never heard before when I can feel the tension building in my body, and I can almost hear what's going to happen next, and it almost does.  It's like its both what I expected to happen and what I didn't.  I don't know how else to...

    Instrumental

    Movie music tends to do this more than anything else.  Not the songs, though some of them are good, but more the orchestral pieces. For example: 1) The piano part of Ghinzu's "The Dragster Wave" used in the trailer for the movie "Taken" 2) The music by...

    Incubus

    I frequently get this with Brandon Boyd's voice or the guitar solo's in loads of Incubus tracks, amazing musicians. Muse and Radiohead do the same thing as well, love it!

    I love how music let me express what I feel, how it cheers me up whenever I'm down, let my cry to lighten my broken heart and loosen me up when I'm on the dance floor.

    My emotion is controlled by the music I listen to. When I listen to artist like Jason Mraz, One republic, Adele or Sam smith I get sent through a emotional journey.
