This is a hard one, because there are so many to choose from. Aqualung (specially the guitar solo), The Musical Box (mainly the ending part), Voyage of the Acolyte, Heart of the Sunrise, Tarkus, etc. Way too many to mention.

Gates of Delirium(the middle part) and firth of fifth(guitar solo) come to mind. Of course there are others as well but those are the two that come to mind for me immediately.

Also, tubular bells(especially towards the end with the naming of musical instruments).

While thinking about this I remembered a moment on a car trip in 1997. 

I was visiting the USA and was staying a few days with a friend in northern California. Sometime in the past year I'd introduced him to Guided by voices. This is in my pre-tinnitus days because we were driving along with 'Don't Stop Now', from their then current album 'Under the Bushes Under the Stars' blasting on his car stereo at such volume that it could probably have been heard in Oregon.  During the end section he attracted my attention and smiled and pointed to his arm, which was covered in ridiculously pronounced goosebumps.

I remember it taking me a long time to get into when I first heard it when I was around 16 years old. It just sounded so odd and out there and I never heard anything like it. Actually, I think one of the things I like about it is that it's so off the wall. However, I think islands(and maybe even Lizard)are weirder.

For me I can't list all of them, but here are some:
 
Marillion  "Easter" especially the guitar solo, but also some of the lyrics/vocals for that.
Ad Infinitum "Waterline" guitar solo and vocal harmonies
YES  "Awaken".....just wow!  Nice visual when YES shot off the white confetti near the climax of the song in concert.
Roine Stolt  "Dissonata"
YES  "Close To The Edge", especially the climax/vocal chorus near the end.
Big Big Train  "Winchester Diver" particularly the dramatic vocal refrain.
Kate Bush (too many to list)
YES  "Going For The One"
Echolyn  "A Little Nonsense"
Marillion  "The Last Straw" (whole band & Tessa Niles' voice WAILING!!)
King Crimson  "Red"
Leger de Main  "Silent Monster"
 
Non-Prog:  Imogen Heap  "Oh Me, Oh My" and "Come Here, Boy".

The last few minutes of Dabsong is just amazing. I especially like the way it goes back to the theme from the first song on the album. It's almost a bit of a trainwreck but somehow it works. Smile That album sometimes gets a bad rap but that one track definitely saves it imo. 

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).

No, really I don't but I'm guessing either the flute solo or guitar solo.

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).

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

That album is so amazing. Powderfinger and Thrasher, especially. 

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

That godly church organ ascension in 'Awaken' gets me every time.
All of 'Aspirations' by Gentle Giant.

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!
