Tingle me
« on: July 29, 2019, 11:08:14 AM »
Provide some music that will tingle me. Now, I suppose like every sensation generated by music, this could be very subjective. But I suspect that there are some inherent qualities that may generically give rise to a tingle in most who are not emotionally dead. Hence, I doubt you can get tingles from The Fall or Children of Bodom, but Mariah Carey may on occasion elicit a tingle.

Here are a few examples that work for me - typically a build up into a guitar or synth crescendo that sustains for a while, spiralling and oscillating upwards to peak tingle

Ozric Tentacles - Dots Thots (Live)
(max tingle on the synth solo)

Ozric Tentacles - Space Between Your Ears
(the build up and then guitar explosion that sustains the tingle magnificently)

Hawkwind - Levitation
(a whole song full of the tingle. My first experience I guess of the tingle, speakers either side of my ears, volume on 10, blast off....tinnitus tingle...Huw Lloyd-Langton's guitar on this is phenomenal and the blending with the synth is a defining example of how to do the tingle (cf. Ozric Tentacles Stretchy). Space Chase off the same album is another example)

Pink Fairies - Uncle Harry's Last Freakout
(A whole track that builds into peak tingle thanks to stunning guitar work by Paul Rudolph and the phasing)

Obvs, these are all on the space rock/psychedelic side, so interested to hear any tingle tracks from other genres.

The cosmic melancholy especially at 4minutes onwards is sublime. 3/5 tingles.

Was gonna post some space rock, but then I figured 70 year old field recordings of Swedish shepherdesses were way more cosmic.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TeYmekhmuBA

I’ve become obsessed at how Janet Jackson sings the word Now on her track The Pleasure Principle. That is a tingle for an era.
