    There are Schubert and Schumann songs that have that quality. Others too, but I'm trying to keep my list small. I've just listened to Van Morrison's 'Like Young Lovers Do, which is as rapturous as anything.

    Bach's St John's Passion does it for me. Can't pinpoint any modern music although there's lots I enjoy.Some electronic music can certainly takes you somewhere else.

    Ave Maria by Giulio Caccini.

    It has to be played on the cello.

    Beautiful-yet so sad.

    Gundela Janowitz singing Beim Schlafengehen.

    Gerhild Romberger coming in on 'O Roeschen Roth" from Mahler 2 at the Proms a couple of years ago. I have never heard anything like it.

    [​IMG] One of my favourites of all time. I may have posted it on here in the past. Sublime.

    Can't post youtube links directly anymore, but for those who are interested

    I used to like VM but the roofing salesman that ripped me off reminded me of him! (when older).

    Oh no!

    You could always get all your VM albums out and a black marker pen, scribble a different hairstyle, moustache, beard, glasses on VM's face . . . .job done. Or you may need to kill the roofing guy.

    Less drastic perhaps, invite the roofing guy round again and scribble on HIS face and shave off his hair.

    Tutankhamun's trumpets being played. I first heard this way back in 72, when the exhibition first came to London, and it 'spooked me out'.

    A hymn can be moving even for an atheist. How great though art starts so quietly with huge promise of a great chorus. I remember hearing it at a Pentecostal church we had gone to for a Billy Graham rally in about 1964. I'd never heard it before and when the congragation lifted their hands and their voices - well!

    My favourite piece of classical music is Erik Satie's Gymnopedie. For a bit of rousing pop I like Elbow's One Day Like This.

    Always a woman to me is apparently my song according to someone. Fits.
