Which Song or Music sends shivers down your spine?

Listening to Jethro Tull - Heavy Horses just now sent a shiver down my spine. So, just wondered which music or song either does the same or is very thought provoking for others out there. Amongst many some of the most diverse ones from my list would have to be:

Wuthering Heights - Kate Bush
Castellorizon - Dave Gilmour
Toccata and Fugue in D minor - Bach
Hector the Hero - Wolfstone
The whole of Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd


War Hero
Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
"The world is full of kings and queens who blind your eyes and steal your dreams. It's Heaven and Hell"

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Whole bloody song

You've got another thing coming - Judas Priest
"If you think I'll sit around as the world goes by, you're thinking like a fool, it's a case of do or die. Out there is a fortune waiting to be had, you think I'll let it go you're mad.
You've got another thing comin'"

Pachelbel's Canon,
Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man - YouTube
Song to the Siren by This Mortal Coil
Beethoven's string quartet in c sharp minor. This is the 'why we fight' music from the Band of Brothers soundtrack. Just brilliant.

Those 4 will get me every time and of course Sunset which is guaranteed to get a room dusty.

War Hero
Maybe from our transatlantic cousins, but still poignant and relevant.


Just noticed - they used to spell 'doughnuts' correctly.

Blimey eh?

"Remember " by Josh Groban {theme song from Troy]

With you there SF1939!

My contributions:

The Last Post

Same as many of you! I first heard it at the Menin Gate ceremony. I cried my eyes out, and met Sir Harry Patch,

Schindler's List Theme

I've got something in my eye right now. So moving - all the more so because when Steven Spielberg asked John Williams to compose the theme and showed him footage, John Williams refused saying something like "I can't, I'm not good enough, you'll have to get someone else" to which Steven Spielberg replied "I would, but they're all dead".

Adagio for Strings

Here I go again! :\\\\\\\')

And finally...


I can clearly remember the first time I heard this and my mum asked what the hell was wrong. I gave her an earphone (listening to Classic FM on my phone, get me!) and we both just sat with a tear rolling down our respective cheeks. I'm aware it's the Mass for Peace and I'm joining the RN, but that doesn't stop it from being a great piece of music!
