For those unfamiliar with the term, here's the Wikipedia article.
Frisson (French for 'shiver') is a sensation somewhat like shivering, usually caused by stimuli. It is typically expressed as an overwhelming emotional response combined with piloerection (goosebumps). Stimuli that produce a response are specific to the individual.

Frisson is of short duration, usually no more than 4–5 seconds, usually pleasurable.[1] Typical stimuli include loud passages of music and passages that violate some level of musical expectation.[2]

It has been shown that during frisson, the skin of the lower back flexes, and shivers rise upward and inward from the shoulders, up the neck, and may extend to the cheeks and scalp. The face may become flush, hair follicles experience piloerection. This frequently occurs in a series of 'waves' moving up the back in rapid succession. The frissoner usually feels the experience as involuntary.

It has been shown that some experiencing musical frisson report reduced excitement when under administration of naloxone (an opioid receptor antagonist), suggesting musical frisson gives rise to endogenous opioid peptides similar to other pleasurable experiences.[3] Frisson may be enhanced by the amplitude of the music and the temperature of the environment. Cool listening rooms and movie theaters may enhance the experience.[2]

For me, Mastodon's "Sleeping Giant" always triggers this for me. Pretty much the entire intro is one frisson after another - multiple musicgasms, if you will.


So what songs/pieces/diddies/tunes make you feel this sensation?

Should be a rule for any thread like this because 20 posts with 1 vid each is exactly the same tbh.

Lots of places in this song, particularly at 9:08 when the saxophone comes in after a super long buildup, as well as at 10:02 when it brings back the melody from the beginning of the song after not hearing it for quite a while and then when it does it again a little later with a heavier bass riff driving it along. Frissons all over the place in this song, especially the first time I heard it.


The only other obvious one I can think of off the top of my head are a lot of the licks David Gilmour plays and moments in Pink Floyd songs. Can't think of one in particular and it's highly dependent on my mood.

So does your sudden frequent posting mean that you got divorced?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
