    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!

    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...

    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...

    Even Kinda Hurts...

    With the right harmony from strong male singers, my spine tingles along with most of my body. My muscles ache during and after, especially my legs.

    Tingles and Goosebumps

    when i hear certain music, it not only makes my spine tingle, but also gives me goose bumps all over my body. i suspect that it's something about a really good dramatic build up to the climax of the song that triggers this. which could be why broadway type music and 80's ballads...

    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...

    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...
