Which Song or Music sends shivers down your spine?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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
  2. 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' - Joy Division

  4. Perhaps I'm institutionalised but The Last Post always does it for me.
  5. Funnily enough Sunset does it for me.
  6. Call the Hands used to make me cry.
  7. Sunset, yes.

    The Last Post, yes. I do have to bite my lip when I hear it though.

    There is a piece called Highland Cathedral which I find very affecting; I first heard it in Ypres:

  8. 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'"

  10. Added link

    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.

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

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

    Blimey eh?

    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!
