I was just wondering if anyonoe else experiences a "tingle" sensation through there body when certain peaces of music are played?? If I listen to specific peices of music, everytime i get a sensation run through my spine ! laugh.gif

try not to laugh at me just yet. Im just wondering how music interacts with our nervous systems, its a very interesting question ive had for a while.

We all talk about music on an emotional level, but there must also be a physialogical response when we listen to music . smile.gif

Yeah, I get that sometimes too.

Music affects my spine in two ways:
-i get a tingle when I listen to some specific tracks
-i nearly break my spine everytime I go crazy in a Moshpit^^
Iconoclast
I have no idea why, but the first song that that ever happened to me with was Space Oddity by David Bowie.

I do like to listen to music that does that makes me feel like that though.
mattacuk
Cool !! So a few of us get it then. I was wondering then, if just for example, specific peices of music effects us all the same way.

Or is it that it happens only when its a peice of music special to one person ! smile.gif

We could test the theory out !! biggrin.gif

Of course i do, there some songs that just send chills everywhere. Anytime i hear Iron Maiden's "The Thin Line Between Love And Hate" or Matthew Santos' "My Remedy" for example, i get goosebumps and tingly sensations smile.gif
mattacuk
Very cool !! biggrin.gif

The song "In the Name of God" by Dream Theater just makes my body freeze all over. I just stare into space in awe when i hear it.
Robin
OF COURSE, I get that often! I think the first time was ~5 years ago when I was listening to Iron Maiden - Aces High.

I get it alot with stuff like Riverdance, classical music and other songs with violins/fiddles. But also if theres a super amazing riff in a song, like the solo part on Iron Maiden - Innocent Exile and Stretch - Can't Judge A Book.
And especially late at night when I'm listening to jazz biggrin.gif

I thought everyone got this from listening to awesome music ohmy.gif
Owen
I always got it in the middle lead passage of Dogs by Pink Floyd.

Doooh-doooh-doo-doo-di-di-di-dooo.

(Andrew can admire the extent of my musical theory above)

I get this all the time when listening to some really moving bands and brilliant pieces of music.

That used to happen with for me with a few Three Days Graces songs like let it die and gone forever. Its really simple music but I think sometimes that makes it easier to feel

For me one that always gets me is John Coltrane's 'A love supreme'.

Great song. Not heard it in ages. Thanks for the link.
Saoirse O'Shea
Glad to hear Matt smile.gif - it's an outtake from the album which is even better heard as a whole.
If I remember the whole piece is Coltrane's meditation on and response to The Creator/God/Whatever term you wish to use.

Awesome album imo - jazz would be very different today without the influence of Coltrane.
And he's one of the major reasons why I picked up the guitar (couldn't afford a sax) -













So he's to blame for the pain that I regularly inflict upon my long suffering family and our cats wink.gif .


Cheers,
Tony
mattacuk
Sounds great, I will have to check it out. PS, I hope the Cats are ok!! tongue.gif

Nice one Robin - I remember her single Stop when it came out years ago - great voice.

Cheers,

I almost never get those chills, I only know of two songs that gives me those chills. First of all, I get it in Blackwater Park by Opeth when Mike sings "the sun sets forever over Blackwater Park", and I get it in The Birth and Death of The Day, when all energy is released, kind of in the end.

Other then that, I never get it sad.gif
The Uncreator
Whenever i hear this song, i get tears in my eyes, its so beautiful.....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFwHTNETEGs Simone's Voice...I mean, its like an Angel.

And of course, whenever i hear this, more tears come to my eyes, i think EVERYONE at GMC Appreciates this man.

There are so many songs that give me chills actually but the one song that moves me to no end is The Dark Island. It's an old scottish song my granfather use to sing to me when I was a wee lass. When he passed a few years ago my great uncle played it on the bagpipes at his funeral...to this day I can't hear that song and not cry. It's a beautiful song and it holds so many dear memories for me.( I can't even look for it on youtube as I'm welling up just writing this sad.gif )

Awww Rok, **hugs** smile.gif
Lazarus Angelo
And of course, Maggot Brain.

Its the most emotional song I think I've ever heard.

Chris Evans
the one song that will always get me going is "Over the rainbow" sung by Eva Cassidy, sung with such great expression and emotion always makes me well up
mattacuk
Ahh, well I guess welling up is a different reaction again. Freddy Mercury makes me well up near everytime! **insert crying smiley here**

The Great Freddie Mercury
Eat-Sleep-andJam
I love this guys rendition of Somewhere over the rainbow gives me chills
