Gary Moore: "Parisienne Walkways" (instrumental version)
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Songs that give you goosebumps...

Oh, that gives me some of the biggest goosebumps as it reminds me of a friend who passed away in 1979. She used to play it almost non-stop for days. Strange thing is I never actually knew at the time what it was called or who sang it and tried for many years to find out. In the mid 90's I suddenly heard it on the radio while in the car and I could feel the hairs all over my body stand on end and I was so grateful they announced who it was at the end of the song.

Re: Songs that give you goosebumps...

To add to the great list of music already cited, one track that springs to mind for me is Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2U"

Re: Songs that give you goosebumps...

Far too many to choose from as I can be really softy when it comes to certain songs and music, but given the recent kerfuffle over Last Night of the Proms, Land of Hope and Glory does it for me at times.

We all have our favorites, but sticking with goose bumps then Nimrod another one by Elgar gets those hairs standing up on my arms as well.

That's very true @Minivanman and with @Mav's choice that started this thread I've got the measure of him Grin

But can anyone guess what it is?

@Mook 

Well it was misspelled (or misspelt) but I guess the choice has to do with the title and @Mav being a moderator?

Found it easy enough anyway and had a listen - but not to my taste... sorrry Mav. 🙂

That song always reminds me of when you need a toilet break. 😀 Better say no more.
