Mylene Farmer, Pas Le Temps Du Vivre Perhaps the most emotional episode onstage I have seen, although she has had a couple of similar examples. There is an explanation that goes with this one.

I went to an Athena (Andreadis) concert a while back and her second song (in Greek) had me in tears. I don't know why, I don't understand Greek any more than I do French -- less in fact.


Ainsi soit je

Don't get the idea that she is eternally lachrymose, she can be quite cheeky and ebullient.

She throws quite a bit into Avan't Que L'Ombre too!

there is no more emotive piece of music than the "Dies Irae" from Verdi's Requiem.

Also Tchaikovsky Symphonys 5 and 6. The Karajan Recordings on deutsche Grammophone are superb.

Of course there's tons of great music, but
some that consistently give me the goosepimples include:

Rock: Jeff Buckley, try "Live at Sin'e"
(but how could I let out Ummagumma Live album, or the live pieces from Land (Patti Smith) or or or...)

Jazz: Charles Mingus, especially when Eric Dolphy is around him
(but if you find it, try the "Italian Instabile Orchestra", that's energy!
or anything from Stefano Bollani, a great pianist)

Classical: Mahler's slow movements, from the Ninth especially
(the question was about goosepimples, right? does "perfection" count, like you'd find it in Bach or Mozart or or or...)


On records, well made live recordings seem to carry more "emotion".


Edit: Thanks for the suggestions from the previous posts, I'll try them.

...indeed,
"Where the artist puts everything into a song or album"
could hardly apply to symphonies.

I'll still maintain Buckley and the Italian Instabile, though...

Not at all. The thread starter clearly stated that he is looking for "emotion" as illustrated by Diane Kraal, Norah Jones etc. I doubt if Mahler or Mingus would do him any good.

Maybe Joni Mitchell "Mingus"
