...and from another side, the "rush" effect on Crown Heights Affair "Galaxy of love" where it breaks into the tune - that does it every time!

It's a bit mainstream I suppose but I really get the shiver thing from the piano part in Come To Me Softly - Jimmy James.

 

It swirls around in the background - arpeggios and runs and flourishes and heaven knows what else - and comes to the front of the mix just at the right moments.

 

The way it complements his voice is musical magic for me.

 

It's a tune I don't like to play too often just in case I ever get fed up with it :D

 

But hey ho, here goes

When Linda Jones takes over the vocal on her duet with The Moments in I'm So Glad on Stang at 1:13 in.

 

It's as if her voice says to the Moments voices "Shove over a bit and make me some room...while I show you how to do it. Real singer in town!"'  She does it again at 2:06 with a single note!

 

Proper! Musical bullying! :thumbsup:

Singers with attitude. Especially the ladies. Love it! :D

 

From the pop end of the soul spectrum again - what about in the live performances of Proud Mary where Tina goes from the 5mph intro to the 100 mph main body of the song.

 

OMG! Wham! Bam! Tina is strutting, the Ikettes are boogying,  Ike is at the back looking like the coolest dude on the planet.

 

I put that in my top 10 musical performances of the last 50 years.

 

Shivers? All over!!

 

(Sorry I've got edit this in. There's a cheeky smile at 1.55 that says "Tighten your seat belts this is going to be a bumpy ride" :D )

Timi Yuro - It'll never be over for me. Pretty much all of it makes me shiver, a heady mix of great lyrics and a driving orchestral beat.

 

Jerry Williams - Run, run roadrunner, the bit where he sings "I live the life I love, I love the life I live, yeah yeah,yeah, yeah"

 

Key changes on a record are often able to make me shiver.

I think song writers quite often use that technique don't they.

 

Change from a major key to minor and then back again. I used to know more about this in my younger days, but most of it just a distant memory now.

Had the shivers from many records over the years. One that readily comes to mind is at the end of Don Garder's "Is This Really Love" where he pleads "Won't Somebody help me, Aaaaaargh I need someone to show me the way yeah"

The harmonica solos by Big Walter Horton in Jimmy Rogers' "Walkin' By Myself" and "Chicago Bound".  The guitar break by Matt Murphy on "Lonesome" by Memphis Slim, The guitar break by Pops Staples in "I'll Fly Away" and "Hammer And Nails" (Riverside version), The soaring Alto high notes in The Flamingos' Chance and Parrot ballads.  Benny Benjamin's, Pistol Allen's and Uriel Jones' snare drum rolls in too many Motown instrumental tracks to mention, and Johnny Allen's 1964 arrangements meshing together all those great Motown instrumental performances.  The Five Keys' fantastic five-part harmony on their 1951 and 1952 cuts (especially "Red Sails In The Sunset" and "My Saddest Hour", and the same for The Flamingos' 1953 and 1954 cuts "Golden Teardrops", "If I Can't Have You", "I'm Yours".  The 1963 and 1964 great harmony backgrounds by Billy Butler and The Enchanters and The Impressions backing Major Lance, Otis Leavill, Jerry Butler and Jan Bradley and Gene Chandler.  1954 guitar solos by Johnny "Guitar" Watson, and many from the 1940s by T-Bone Walker.  The rolling plunky piano of Otis Spann, Memphis Slim, Champion Jack Dupree.  The haunting guitar licks of Elmore James.  The early Motown sax and flute solos of Beans Bowles.  The great ensemble sound of The Afro Blues Quintet and Afro Blues Quintet +1 on "Liberation" and "Moses", and really everything on their first four LPs.  The haunting clarity of Ray Pollard's lead vocals in his cuts as lead of The Wanderers.

Karmello Brooks - when she goes 'de-dooby-da-da' or something like that after the first verse/chorus - she's just so carried away with the joy of just singing!

Also a bit later on when her voice growls a bit - magic.

Really into female vocals at the mo.

 

This is a good thread and really shows the PASSION of everyone on here - what it's all about.

killer break at 1:12 seconds always seems to hit the spot...

 

 

Instrumental break at 1:17 seconds in a big hall sounds the business...

 

 

Dennis Edwards Voice at 1:15 Seconds with the backing girl makes the whole record for me...

The start of Roy Hamilton -Heartache (Hurry On By) where the backing singers start first then Roy comes in quietly but with real feeling.

Also one that always gets me - intro to Edward Hamilton -I'm Gonna Love You, fantastic drum roll then, crash, and away they go.

Magnificent 7, Never Will I, gets played in here at least once a week, "so close, a breeze can't blow between us, so tight, you couldn't part us with a Tommy gun" brilliant lyric, and the delivery, well, perfection

The first song that gave me that hair standing on end up the back of the neck moment is quite a surprising one. I had a lot of Otis, Aretha records that I loved, and I also had a few , what would be classed as Northern that I also loved, but in 1972 when My cousin played Vol 2 of the Motown Disco classics album & Two Can Have A Party came on....Boom, the hairs went and I though What the Feck was that!!!!!!! Uptempo still does it for me now.
