Songs that make you tingle..

Are there any songs out there that actually cause you to have a positive physical reaction when listening to them? I’m talking about that hair-raising, tingly feeling of a really good song.

Here’s some songs that give me this feeling (in alphabetical order):
“3 Libras” – A Perfect Circle
“Ask Me Anything” – The Strokes
“Everlong” – Foo Fighters
“Everything’s Not Lost” – Coldplay
“The Great Below” – Nine Inch Nails
“Halcyon + On + On” – Orbital
“Hide and Seek” – Imogen Heap
“Lateralus” – Tool
“Layla” – Derek & The Dominos
“Let Go” – Frou Frou
“Life Uncommon” – Jewel
“Only In Dreams” – Weezer
“Pushit [Live]” – Tool
“Rods and Cones” – Blue Man Group
“Someday” – The Strokes
“Structure” – The Cynic Project
“Susanne” – Weezer
“Tonight, Tonight” – The Smashing Pumpkins
“Unchained Melody” – The Righteous Brothers
“Warning Sign” – Coldplay
“Where I End and You Begin” – Radiohead
“Wish You Were Here” – Pink Floyd

I’m sure there are others that I’m forgetting.

So what songs make you tingle? :)

    Oh, my… I started thinking about your question, looking at my itunes library, and realize I’m a wallower – Most of the songs I listen to over and over again to make me think about bad times. Most of my good-tingly songs are the kind of songs you sing really loud in your car on that lonely stretch of I-40, or play while you’re jogging to give you that extra kick in the rear.

    How about:
    The Devil Inside – INXS
    Public Enemy – He Got Game
    Renegades of Funk – Rage Against the Machine
    Wave of Mutilation – Pixies
    Why Can’t This Be Love – Van Halen
    When I Grow Up – Garbage
    In the Waiting Line – Zero 7 (from Garden State)

    Then there’s the O.C. Christmas Mix. Don’t ask.

    Ciao! :)

    Yay! I was beginning to think my comments didn’t work, hehe.

    I have a lot of negative songs that I listen to as well. Of course, the song that really gets me going when I’m exercising or something is “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” by Daft Punk. I used to listen to it nearly every morning to get myself going (just ask my friend Becka, it drove her nuts at work!).
