I think I made a similar thread before buy hey ho.

It has nothing to do with the fact that Radiohead are the default band to proclaim credibility at times.

I just judge tracks on what they are no matter what genre and when the piano kicks in on the songs last third it is enough for me.

This one isn't about the music per se, it's more about the presentation.

Old school Van Halen when they were on top of their game--the opening
with Eddie's riffs and DLR getting air off the drum riser is classic!

Yup, the goosebumps are there...

Rebecca Del Rio's performance of Llorando, a Spanish language version of Roy Orbison's song Crying was a goose bumps moment for me. I first saw her sing the song in the David Lynch film Mulholland Drive in 2001 and the scene still haunts me.

But Lynch is engaged in a game of psychological trickery to deliberately manipulate our emotional response to her singing. Toward the end of the song Del Rio passes out on the stage and we learn that during her passionate stage performance, she was merely lip synching a pre-recorded version of the song.... but her operatic voice is stunning even if the song is pre-recorded.

There are two types of music: the first type is the blues and the second type is all the other stuff.

The scream at 1:51:

At 2:28 when the blast beats come in (and pretty much the whole song too):

That bit at 2:18:

I need more stuff like that.

The other day I listened to "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James and the Shondells for the first time and I was absolutely blown away by the way the tambourine starts off sparsely in the prechorus and then picks up pace as the story of romance unfurls, mimicking the quickened pace of a throbbing heartbeat - thoroughly euphoric and a great display of songcraft.

Too many to mention from numerous genres, so I'll start with Opera.

Jussi Bjorling's slow version of Nessun Dorma from 1944, Live @ Stockholm. When he hits the last 'Vincero' @ 3:21.... it's goosebumps city.

I also enjoy Pavarotti's 1994 version in L.A. because you can watch him pour his soul into the aria, facial expressions and all. Quite a powerful performance, particularly from 2:20 onwards. Then from 2:38 onwards he just continues to elevate the aria into another realm. Goosebumps.
