Moments in songs that have literally given me physical chills
Screenshots and descriptions of these magical musical moments (time marks included):
- •I AM MUSIC NOW! I AM RHYTHM NOW!
- •Good golly, that wailing fiddle! I seriously feel that this is the melody my heart sings when I'm overjoyed.
- •The way this moment fits into the rest of the song and the singer's conversation with his own heart. It's just SO GOOD.
- •Actually, this entire soundtrack. But especially the moment of "Hamilton wrote the OTHER FIFTY-ONE!" never fails to get me for some reason.
- •Like my feet are landing back on the earth after flying. I've never been sky diving, but I'd imagine this moment is like end of the float down after the parachute has already started working.
- •For a brief moment during this key change, I'm pretty sure I feel like I know the meaning of life (or at the very least, the shape!).
- •Because Disney really knows how to do a key change and utilize building percussion.
- •That build to that "AHHHH"... I just love it!
- •"I just saw a shooting star... We can wish upon it!" Nothing makes a moment like a shooting star.
- •Because at this moment, I am my 11 year-old self receiving my Hogwarts letter.
- •I'm a sucker for songs that tell me everything's gonna be alright... And this one does it pretty great right here.
- •"All will be well." Another beautiful way of saying it's all going to be okay.
- •At this point (assuming I'm not driving) I am compelled to dance in circles and sing along into my hairbrush... Because I AM NOT A ROBOT and that is something to celebrate!
- •A chill-worthy orchestral build!
- •She's just spent a large portion of the song depressingly comparing the finite nature of our lives to those of snowmen (I think) and somehow with this beautiful ending, it all seems oddly okay.
- •My parents still live in my childhood home, but this first line always gets me in the gut, thinking how someday it might not be mine to go home to.
- •The song is called "This Love Won't Break Your Heart" and the whole thing just fills my heart up. But this moment, man! Add a chorus and a round and "Auld Lang Syne" into anything and it's gonna make me tear up with that triple whammy.
- •Because "I always cry at endings" just gets me.
