Rubbish, piffle, tommyrot, drivel and utter bilge

Goosebump City

Earlier this evening I was on Facebook (like that's a surprise) and a mate posted a YouTube video of one of my favouritest ever ever ever (OK, that's quite enough) songs, the lovely Song To The Siren by This Mortal Coil.

This is a song that can produce goosebumps on me every time. I had the computer speakers on fairly loudly and at first I worried that it would be too loud for the other occupants of the house, but after hearing no voice of complaint after about 15 seconds I decided to just let the thing play. At the end of it I shivered a little, wiped a dewy tear from my eye and thought,".....aaaahhhhhh. It just does not get any better than that."

There is a short list of songs that have the power to do that. If I played them all at once I would just be a puddle at the end of it.

Here are some.

Roy Orbison - In Dreams

Ronettes - Be My Baby

Monsoon (feat. Sheila Chandra) - Sunset Over The Ganges

The Smiths - Asleep

The Art Of Noise - Moments In Love

This Mortal Coil - Kangaroo

David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto - Forbidden Colours

Japan - Ghosts

Goosebump City.
