Music that gives us chills

Into the Mystic by Ian Burt

There’s some music that just gives us chills.  It’s so tender or poignant or transcendent or so exquisitely passionate, that we’re captivated and soothed.

Here are a few of our recent favorites:

Charles’s picks:
Ave Maria
sung by Beyonce
Nella Fantasia
sung by Sarah Brightman
by Beyonce

(so Charles picked Beyonce twice, but if you’ve ever seen Beyonce in concert, you’ll understand.  She’ll have you completely)

Shanti’s “gives me chills” music picks:
Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap
Let Go by Frou Frou (Frou Frou is the creative combo of Imogen Heap and Guy Sigworth)
The Walk by Imogen Heap

Susan’s music picks:
Shadowfeet by Brooke Fraser
Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield.
More Like Falling in Love by Jason Gray

How can you resist lyrics like this:

Give me rules, I will break them
Show me lines, I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet, it’s gotta be
More like falling in love than something to believe in
More like losing my heart than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out,
come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

– Jason Gray, from the album “Every Sad Thing is Coming Untrue
