The song-music that gives you goose bumps ?
« on: October 30, 2019, 11:50:47 PM »
Hi all.
What song-music gives you goose bumps each time you listen to it ?

Me, it's this one.

The reason is that I love the sound of this type of instrument.
In addition the music itself is very immersive,
it's like you are in the music.
Plus, here I am biased I love Asian (Not all) music,
normal I'm married to a Vietnamese and living on planet Vietnam.
I have to admit however, I am very selective in my choice of Asian music.
How about you ?
Any music that gives you goose bumps ? ? ?

Thanks Guy. For me there are dozens, but three quickly come to mind. The first is a remake of an Adam's favorite. The second is a long long time favorite by Ben E King.

Ben was at the recording studio working on a song, based upon a Psalm, when one of the group stopped by. Soon another showed and the song "Stand by Me" was born, the rest is history.

The third involved a French Song in mid 40s. In the late 40s an English version was written. In the late 50s, Chet Atkins of RCA invited the Browns to come record one last LP, as they were seriously considering quitting the business.

After finishing the last song for the LP, Chet asked if they would like to do one more song. Jimmy Brown (and sisters) said sure, and a gigantic hit was created. Ironically, the singer's name, Jimmy Brown is the same as the song's character given in the late 40s.
