It happened to me with a few : P

I just gave the song a listen :) it certainly is a good one, filled with emotion and I like the vintage feel of it...

It's a great song. I get into random moods where I listen to it nonstop for hours and hours.

The only song I can listen to for hours is The Misty Mountain Cold from the Hobbit :D The first time I heard it, shivers ran down my spine.

Wow! I just listened to it! I've seen the movie once before and didn't remember it, but this song is amazing! I can definitely relate with you about the shivers. Their voices are beautiful! They are up there with the boys in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they did Lonesome Polecat! I love it when a group of guys get together and harmonize like this :) The blend of their voices is always magical :) Ah, my heart is pitter-pattering just thinking of it :)

Jackson Browne's For a Dancer, which talks about the death of his wife, and has the most amazing description of life, from birth to death, in a single verse:

Just do the steps that you've been shown
by everyone you've ever known,
until the dance becomes your very own.
But no matter how close to yours
another's steps have grown,
in the end there is one dance
you'll do alone.
You can't put a rope around the neck of an idea.

We're in agreement on Jackson Browne ... don't really know why but the one that always manages to make me sob is The Pretender
We fade away, but vivid in our eyes
A world is born again that never dies.

This reminds me of Cat's in The Cradle, Johnny Cash's version touches me the most...

A lot of his get to me that way. He always makes me want to sit down and write, because there's a half-told story in every song he writes. I remember hearing somewhere that a friend of his once said that no matter how bad his life got, he would never consider suicide because he knew that Jackson would immediately write a song about him. Kinda sad that Jackson's known enough people who have to have such a collection of songs about them!

Dougie Maclean always gets to me too, Little Ones Must Walk On is a killer, as is "Let Her Go," which I've never heard him speak of, but on the surface it's clearly about a dying child and the decision not to perpetuate her suffering.

"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen-specifically, Jeff Buckley's version. It soars!

Leonard performing Hallelujah live ... spine chilling & one of the most emotional moments of my life
