Music Chills

I can give myself the chills or goose bumps on command by listening to some of my favorite music. It usually happens when there is a complex amazing sounding part I just love but can’t fathom how the artist did it. Other times it’s just such a strong music piece it blows my mind. Two very songs that give me chills are Double FM “Illusion” (link) and the intro to Depeche Mode “Black Celebration”.

“The medical term cutis anserina, are the bumps on a person’s skin at the base of body hairs which may involuntarily develop when a person is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear, nostalgia, pleasure, euphoria, awe, admiration and sexual arousal.” – Wikipedia
