Those songs that just....

I was just posting to another topic and one of those songs came on that gives me goose bumps every time. There are different ones that do it for me, but this one happened to be...

 

Leatherwolf - Thunder

 

Everytime that beat starts and then when they hit that chorus:

"(I am the thunder)

That starts the rain

(I see the heavens)

Open the gates

(I am the lightning)

That lights up the sky

(I have the answer)

The secret is mine"

 

Would've loved to see this live with 20,000 plus rock heads back in the day. Ahhh, the good ol' days.

 

So what song "does it" for you?

I'd have to go with a soppy AOR ballad on this one!

 

ROBBY VALENTINE - Over and Over Again

 

My all-time fave ballad (just re-recorded for his new 'Best of' album) that has great piano/keyboards and a lush chorus. I know a lot of people don't like his vocals, and his live show is a complete mess (he tries to do too much at once), but every play of this tune gives me goosebumps.

'Surrender' and 'Still' by Steelhouse Lane. Perfection.

 

Also, 'Porcelain' by Cauterize.

The bit on Rush 2112 where the voice comes in

 

"Attention all planets of the solar federation

Attention all planets of the solar federation

Attention all planets of the solar federation

We have assumed control.

We have assumed control.

We have assumed control."

 

 

Still gives me goose bumps after all these years!

Tumbleweed by Love/Hate, especially when Jizzy screams, "Ahhhh...I'm a tumbleweeeeeeeed!" Awesome.

 

And Badger Badger by Tygers of Pan Tang. :band:
