It's usually the lyric of a song that gives me the chills.
I can really be won over by a song. If a guy was to sing a song to me, spoke to me in lyrics, I'd be putty in his hot sweaty hands.....

Hmmmm. What was the thread about again? Oh yeah. Chills. Sometimes it's just a vibe of a song that does it, an opening guitar riff or a bass line.

It's a very individual thing.

A lot can be spoken through a song.

Hallelujah does that to me, just listen to the words, it's really dark.



Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Yes sassy that's a chilling song but as Didge said, it is about who sings it.
I've heard that song murderend and over-sung and hated it.

Oh me too, and I don't think you can beat Leonard Cohen.

Another one by him  Who by fire



And who by fire, who by water,
Who in the sunshine, who in the night time,
Who by high ordeal, who by common trial,
Who in your merry merry month of may,
Who by very slow decay,
And who shall I say is calling?

And who in her lonely slip, who by barbiturate,
Who in these realms of love, who by something blunt,
And who by avalanche, who by powder,
Who for his greed, who for his hunger,
And who shall I say is calling?

And who by brave assent, who by accident,
Who in solitude, who in this mirror,
Who by his lady's command, who by his own hand,
Who in mortal chains, who in power,
And who shall I say is calling?

It can be anything, melody or lyrics. It's the experience...what you were thinking and what you were doing...and the replay of that experience that memory gives.

It's the feel of a song and yes, the memory it evokes.

There's a certain intimacy with a song I think.

That's a classic HA. Doesn't give me the chills but it's a great song nonetheless.
