Do You Get Chills When You Listen to Music?

Definitely. I have strong reactions to all kinds of art. I feel for people who don’t engage the world this way. It’s a big part of my motivation for participating in the first place.

Sometimes, in the right circumstances associated with the right music. It’s not genre-specific, IIRC.

By the way, I actually avoid listening to music most of the time because it’s too distracting from what I’m trying to do. I either get entirely caught up in it or it irritates the hell out of me. I wonder if that correlates with brain wiring?

This is interesting. My experience is (usually) the opposite. Music improves my concentration and stamina for most tasks.

A year or two ago I watched a TV program about this girl - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh8zh0W0As0

Years ago, on rare occasions, I sometimes heard original full-orchestra symphonies in my head, even with ‘passages’ with solos for certain instruments.  This sometimes happened when alone in the wilds for several weeks with no radio, phone or other contact with the world at large.  I could sit and listen to them as though attending a concert.

I have heard of this “music in my head” stuff, but only recently understood it.  My mind is a blank, so the concept of music, ideas, and thoughts drifting in was difficult to grasp.  The mysteries of our amazing brains and their abilities for good and evil are astounding.

I rarely see goals, and admire those who can, because when I see goals then achieving them is easy, so when I read stories like the young girl the story makes sense that she already knows what is going to happen and all she needs to do is externalize it.  Of course I mean large, complex, creative goals, not daily mundane ones

It’s FAR easier for me to multitask when there are no vocals in the music I’m listening to.

I don’t know if this counts, but every time I hear Rod Stewart’s mutilation of Downtown Train, I get explosive diarrhea of biblical vehemence.

I know what you mean. “Rain Dogs” is one of the great recordings, desert island stuff. The group Everything But The Girl also turns this particular song into a syrupy, romantic haze. One cannot deeply understand this song unless one has grown up, and should follow Tom’s rendition of DT with his version of “Sea of Love”. Somebody stop me: I feel a playlist comin’ on.

Shiver me timbers, I’m a-sailin’ tonight.

The soundtrack to the 6th circle of hell; Tom Traubert’s Blues, the Elton John version with a solo by Kenny G.

Not chills, but this one always gets me going:

crusaders: stomp and buck
