That was the first song that came to mind when I saw the thread!

I was thinking of making a similar thread! Big Grin Here are my takes for now:

Oh, is this an anime thread now? Wink




Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Pavarotti’s interpretation of Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep) from Tourandot by Puccini.

No matter how many times I hear it when he hits the crescendo every hair on my arms stand.





and "The Gael", the theme from The Last of the Mohicans

I, of course, now recognize that passion is not a 'holy spirit' but just my passion for music and continue to sing at christmas but my question to you all is this.....
what song moves you beyond tears, feelings etc?
I change so often as my usual suspects are Led Zepplin and Grateful Dead but when I heard Cinamatic Orchestra's to build a home.....oh boy! some tissue was required! LOL
What gets you?????

The climax to Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings," where he resolves the chord, brings tears to my eyes every single time.

This will sound weird but I love the Messiah. It is an incredible piece of music.

I love Messiah, too, although in a somewhat contrarian way. In general, I like the choral sections much better than the arias, and of the choruses, I like most of them better than the famous "Halleluia" chorus -- it's OK, but not my favorite part of the piece.

I also prefer Bach to Handel, but they both wrote a lot of great music.
