Also:

Counting crows - Colour Blind
Damien Rice - The Blowers Daughter
The Verve - Bittersweet symphony
Stolen - Dashboad Confessional (our wedding dance song)
Switchfoot - Only Hope
Vast - Touched
Radiohead - Karma Police

So many more.. but that's off the top of my head. Oh and almost every Coldplay and Queen song - I couldn't name just one.


ditto to all of that! - especially the Coldplay songs wub.gif wub.gif wub.gif

You've pretty much outlined half my 'most 25 played' list on my i-pod!

1,000 miles by Vanessa Carlton. Every time I hear it it takes me back to the worst night of my life - the night I had to tell my then 6yo that her much loved Nanna had died. Nan had died in a car accident a few days earlier, while driving to our house to surprise DD for her dance concert (we had moved interstate 6 months earlier and they missed each other terribly) When she died, my Pop had asked us to not tell DD until after the concert, because he wanted her to have 1 final night of happiness before we shattered her world. Midway through the concert a girl came out and sang that song. I had been trying to hard to hold myself together for DD's sake for 2 days, and the song set me off. I still can't listen to it without bawling.

And as sad as it sounds, the other song is I miss you, by Miley Cyrus. DD sang this song over and over and over again as we were driving to the funeral. Absolutely broke my heart.

I have countless songs that give me goosebumps.

One that comes to mind at the moment is

'The first time ever I saw your face' by Roberta Flack

it's the first song on a lullaby album I just made for baby. Not only does it give me goosebumps but I tear up at the words, thinking about the 'first time' my baby & I will meet for the very first time.

I also have 'A Mother's Prayer' by Andrea Bocelli on the lullaby album. It was the song playing during our walking down the aisle on our wedding DVD and it gives me goosies too wub.gif

Miss Sarajevo by U2 and Pavarotti


Agreed!!

The other significant ones that come to mind are as follows:

Dream Catch Me - Newton Faulkner (There is something about this song that wrenches at my heart. It was released about the time that my 'heart' dog Ruby passed & I heard it on the radio one night shortly afterward. The song just spoke to me and reminded me of her so much. The fact that I would dream about her hit home, hence why this song just speaks to me.)

Halo - Beyonce (I would have to say this is her masterpiece song in the way she gives so much soul to it)

American Boy - I cannot stop bopping & singing at the top of my lungs whenever I hear this song. And at the risk of sounding obsessed about my heart dog, this song was released a few weeks before she passed. I remember taking her to work with me one morning to take her to the vet nearby. This song came on the radio, so I sang it to her the whole way to the vet.. blush.gif )

Spare me the details - The Offspring (when I am in the car by myself I sing this as loud as I can banging the steering wheel)

Angel - Sarah McLachlan (played at my biological mother's funeral. She was such a troubled soul, this song fitted the moment perfectly, but I cannot listen to this song without bawling esp as I pinned a 'guardian angel' on her lapel moments before the funeral started, so it was like a msg from her as I had no idea of the songs the other sisters selected to play.)

Somewhere over the rainbow - Israel ? (This song always reminds of the dr with the glasses on that hit show years ago ER?/Chicago Hope? when he dies at the end from cancer. Thinking about it makes me tear up even now)

The way you look tonight - just a beautiful soul touching song. Simply love it!!

Oh and last one.... Superstar by the Carpenters (Karen Carpenter would have to have the most beautiful liquid, soft but emotional & mature voice I have ever heard in a female singer)

I feel a bit emotional after this thread!! blush.gif
Scott & Di - Married In Vegas 30th Sept 2010... Just how we wanted it to be...
Elijah 'Eli' came into our world 3.11.11... And what a wonderful world it has been since then!
