That's a reaction I never have. I wonder why. Wink

Wow, I've had goosebumps from so many songs, but I'll pick out a couple:

Yes - "And You And I". The part where the music swells and Jon comes in with "Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid. Emotion revealed is the ocean maid". Gets me every time, even after 30 years.

VdGG "La Rossa" from "Still Life".
"Drown me drown me now and hold me down before your naked hunger, burn me on the altar of the night. Give me life!"
That powerful sense of longing for something seemingly unobtainable, but which will provide ultimate meaning and fulfillment.
Such a powerful emotion and certainly gives me shivers.

Also, from the same album, the ending of "Childlike Faith in Childhoods End":
"And though dark is the highway, and the peaks distance breaks my heart, for I never shall see it still I play my part. Believing that what waits for us is the cosmos compared to the dust of the past. In the death of mere humans life shall start."
Powerful stuff that never fails to bring a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye.

As for Frank the one by him that stands out for me is "Peaches en regalia." 

Anyway, another one for me is "the fountain of lamneth part 1" by Rush(especially the first few minutes with the opening guitar riff). 



Yeah Peaches is obviously a well loved classic by Frank. So is Inca Roads. But he has so many great tunes, almost impossible to pick just one.. for me anyway. I'll have to check out that Rush song sometime. I do like them, just a little burned out on them(Floyd same).

Well, stop listening to the radio and listen to the actual albums. The radio ruins music because they play the same songs over and over again. Wink

There are a lot of songs that give me goosebumps, but the most consistent artist that does so currently is Devin Townsend.  Oh, and King Crimson of course.
 
Classically, I would have to go with Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Bartok and Ravel 
What are you looking down here for?

Great posting, although I've loved these already, it puts them wonderfully in the spotlight.

Full agreement on "Just A Normal Day" - and several from Crime of the Century - that album is killer, and it always gets to me.  But it's one I can't pick and choose songs from - I just have to listen to the whole thing from start to finish.

I'll never forget getting the Aerial CD after waiting so many years for a new release from her.  I enjoyed disc 1, but was blown away by disc 2, and by the time Nocturn finished, and Aerial started, I was near tears.  At the close of Aerial (and the end of the CD) I was just weeping.

Can't say that's ever happened to me before listening to music.  I can get choked-up, but that one just did me in.

Soft Machine's "Song of Aeolus" from Softs is one that always shakes me up a bit.

Also Camel's "Watching the Bobbins" from Harbour of Tears is one that I find quite moving.

Renaissance's "Song of Scheherazade" always gets me too.

I think that may be my favourite live album. What a line up they had at that time!

Camel is a band with many songs that give me chills

Song within a Song, particularly the ending gets me every time. It's just out of this world.

Echoes by them as well, the verse in particular

There's really several throughout several throughout what ive listened to so far (Mirage, Snow goose, Moonmadness, Rain Dances, Breathless, Rajaz, Nod and a Wink) they're simply one of my favorite bands ever.

Outside of that I can only really think of The ending of Suppers Ready and Cinema Show.

Perhaps the Night Watch by King Crimson and Starless

Two more: July Morning and Gypsy (both from Uriah Heep), when the swirling Hammond and heavy guitar riffs blend, an adrenaline rush, so exciting and compelling!

I feel the same about Camel, very emotional and moody music.  That part where Andy sings about the red guitar on Rajaz (Straight to my heart?)  -- that part gets me every time.
