    Red face Do you "get lost" when you hear certain songs?

    Primal Fuel
    Sometimes I lose myself when I hear certain songs. Always "Glitter In The Air" by Pink, and always "When Doves Cry" by Prince. This morning, Prince's "Kiss" was on the radio and I got lost in it. By lost, I mean I get triple layers of goosebumps and tune out of everything else and sometimes dance like I am never able to otherwise. It's almost primal. It's just something that happens. I'm gone and totally immersed in the music. Sometimes Dave Matthews' " # 41" does it to me. Some of Pavarotti's songs have done it to me, too.

    How about you? Any songs you lose yourself in?

    Absolutely I do. Some songs make me want to just headbang, and I often forget I am doing work at a coffeehouse or public place, so I have to be careful about that so as not to get some, ah, weird looks.

    Other songs almost ALWAYS make me feel sad so I cannot, CANNOT listen to them unless I am alone.

    Here's one that a friend introduced me to that always gets me a bit: Koyuki - Full Moon Sways - YouTube

    And here's another one that I have always loved since I first heard it: Cowboy Bebop- Blue (Full) - YouTube (I want this played at my freakin' funeral)

    Oh, and then, when you're at a public place and you hear an EXTREMELY depressing song come on over the PA system and you're just like, "okay, would you play this song at a fucking bar?!? What is this, the lonely hearts club bar?" Just... Ugh.

    Depressing music has its place, but not in public places where people are supposed to be happy and sociable.

    Yes. I've especially experienced this with live music. Especially at smaller venues where you can really see the musicians performing.

    This one (or anything with Derek Trucks) works pretty reliably for me:


    The sensation/goosebumps thing (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response - ASMR) was discussed on the latest Paleo Solution podcast:
    Robb Wolf - The Paleo Solution - Episode 215 (Q&A)

    Also just found that there is a subreddit dedicated to it:
    ASMR. Sounds that feel good

    Oooh thanks! I will listen to those ASAP.

    I listened to my entire Spotify playlist today. DD got a kick out of me dancing and singing around the house all day.

    I also got lost in the Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris". Some of SRV's (Stevie Ray Vaughan) songs used to do that to me too but I'm not sad/don't have the blues anymore. I am still struck/stricken ?? by them though.

    Let me know what you think of the songs I linked when you get a moment. They're both pretty obscure in the grand scheme of things, so I am almost positive most people here won't have heard them. But I think both of them are amazingly artistic, deep, and sad on a level that just... Hits me perfectly to create a feeling of emotions every time.

    Oh, and on a random and much happier note: I remember the Jim Carey movie "The Mask" from seeing it when I grew up. Loved it! My favorite scene was when he was trying to distract and confuse a mod of police officers by singing and dancing to the song "Cuban Pete."

    I was inspired to look up the original version and I found it here, God rest Desi Arnaz's beautifully artistic soul:

    HD_Cuban Pete_Desi Arnaz 1946_Lyrics - YouTube

    It makes me want to just get up and dance. I suppose that's what it's supposed to do though, heh.

    SRV is the man. One of my favorite artists for a long time now. It's like the guitar is just an extension of himself. And he's just opening a door and letting raw emotion/energy come through. Same with Derek Trucks. Transcendental is the word that comes to mind. The lick from 0:57 - 1:05 in the video below gets me every time. The whole song is spectacular of course.

    Ok, how could I forget this one? The first song I ever had an "epiphany" to and can remember crying to:

    Steve Conte - Call Me, Call Me! - YouTube

    When you figure out what this song is REALLY about, not just what it SOUND like it's about... Bam! Cue waterworks.

    Yes, I am a sentimental fool.

    I was under the impression that it was Michael Bolton or Yanni.
