Many songs, but the violin solo part of Losing It (Rush, from Signals) is exhilarating.

There must be many.. but the ones I remember now, that also frequently come accompanied by watery eyes (mainly in Rush), are these:


Rush:

 · A Farewell to Kings: 

The combination of power and those amazing, epic, beautiful, direct, addressing, historical, justice and better society through intelligence and common sense driven lyrics... being screamed by Geddy:

Can't we find
The minds that made us strong?
Oh can't we learn
To feel what's right and what's wrong? What's wrong

[Lifeson's breaking guitar solo over the bass and drums section]

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise
Whoa can't we raise our eyes
And make a start?
Can't we find the minds
To lead us closer to the heart?


 · Xanadu 
   The ending guitar solo from that starting low note (but it could easily be the entire song: the birds, synth, chimes and guitar with volume effect at the beginning and the breaking of the drums & guitar picking after that).

 · Here Again
   The slow guitar solo

Genesis:

 · The Fountain of Salmacis
   The ending march with the guitar solo

 · One for the Vine
   The synth part near the end

Absolutely, one of those classics you buy in pair, one copy for the living room shelves and one copy for the car.

Hi,

Apart from some lyrics, almost all of the music mentioned here has been a part of my sexiest and loving'est moments ever ... and the only goosebumps I might have would be some nails running slowly through my back, or my own nails running through hers!

Some lyrics are the bigger problem for me, and while I like Steve Wilson, and have no issues with his work in PT, on his own, every now and then one of his lyrics hits me wrong ... and badly wrong. It's not the lyric itself ... it's how he says it ... it's more than "personal" .... it ends up sounding vindictive and malicious, and that kind of stuff has a way of turning me off that person's work. So far, I have not let go of SW, in this example, but one more moment of that ugly side, and I will never play another SW moment, or possibly even another PT moment, even though I love that band ... but it's the mates that make it, for me, not him!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

I saw this thread when it was first posted but I couldn't sort out in my mind a song that addressed the 'goose bumps' part, until today.

Very little gives me goosebumps. Only "firth of fifth," the chorus towards the end of CTTE and parts of Gates of Delirium. Ironically also parts of the snowgoose. :)

You are right, Firth Of Fifth, an eargasm, one of the highlights in symphonic rock

“Mozambique” by Amon Düül II. The “raper of women” section, the whisper at the end ... scary.

I'm fairly certain you've spoken for me as well, here Clap.

"The path is clear, though no eyes can see; the course laid down long before..."

"Now that it's all over and done; now that you're fine now that you're WHOOOOOOOOLE; SEEEEASON WILL PASS YOU BY; I GET UP; I GET DO-OWN...."

Absolute pinnacle level stuff! ClapCry
Lying on the hill; crawling over the windowsill into your living room...

Yep exactly. I can't really think of all that many examples off the top of my head. Another one that really gets me is towards the end of Tubular Bells part one where the guy is introducing the instruments.
