Live or studio versions or otherwise

I can't say I've ever been made to feel angry from a song. That's weird tbh
Check out my band Disturbed

I've had some moments of serious lucidity and self-reflection during EDM shows.

Probably the most emotional song for me is Queensryche's SIlent Lucidity.  After decades of listening to it, it still gives me the strange feeling of massive amounts of static electricity surging through my body in waves and makes me feel sad and peaceful at the same time.  It's a strange feeling that no other song has ever done to me. 

My favorite besides the studio version is the 1991 MTV live version.

Listening to some of Joanna Newsom's stuff has moved me like almost nothing else has

Some of Swans' later work has gotten me close to actual fear, not Anselm Kiefer close but pretty near it. An Empty Bliss Beyond This World also did it but that album is fucked up

sometimes I lose all awareness of time or space when listening to very simple droney stuff but that's really rare

It's hard not to be when Robert Plant does that thing.

Just look at the lyrics to that part of Whole Lotta Love:

'Ah ah... AH ah.... AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AAAAH AAAH AAAH AAAH aaah...'

Taking 200ug acid and listening to dark side of the moon from start to finish with eyes closed, during the end of the album around brain damage definitely changed my life im not playing

first time taking a blotter at an EDM show, really made me appreciate everything and everyone who was there, great experience, but i'd say it was more of mental clarity if anything.

first time sitting down, cranking up the volume on my surround sound stereo, and listening to Comfortably Numb after a few stanky danky tokes ... man what a song (with 2 of the best psychedelic rock solos in history, i might add), really felt that vibe / connection since it's always been my favorite Floyd song as a kid. But listening to it years later through "a different lens" really made me appreciate it on another level.

Honestly, nothing gives me feels like Broadway music. A well-executed Broadway ballad kicks me in the gut.

That said, I haven't really been a Broadway fan since high school and I only listen to Broadway when my wife has it on. My enjoyment of music, it seems, is not all about feels.

The most emotion I've ever felt listening to music has resulted in me just sitting there bawling my eyes out lol. There are a lot of specific examples, but the first one that comes to mind is the first time I listened to Lana Del Rey's "Ultraviolence" album back in 2014. I was already really into the vintage rock vibes, but a few moments on that album absolutely put me over the edge. 

The first one was during the guitar solo in "Shades of Cool." I honestly felt like I was high while listening to that. I felt so light and elevated and really good. The second extreme emotion was the song "Old Money." I remember laying on my couch listening to it in the dark, and certain lyrics made my eyes widen, and I just started weeping.

I got very scared and goosebumpy when listening to those "Screams of hiroshima" pieces and similar atonal ones
Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed and the like when listening to some Marco Antonio Solis or similar singers
I get the "I want to party down" emotion when listening to many funkies

If you like that themed stuff (I'm guessing you're talking about Penderecki?) try



You might get a little more from it if you read into the background a tiny bit but I'll leave that to you.

I'll bookmark it .... but yeah I don't want to listen to that type of stuff right now lol (don't really want to feel dread and dispair right now)

EDIT: Though at times it's kind of soothing to hear it. Like, when you hear it you can pinpoint how it makes your brain make you feel what it makes you feel, but you can go "Ok, I'll try to not feel that" and find a moment where you are actually enjoying the piece, blocking the formation of that emotion from your mind

Bryars isn't that kind of stuff, if anything it's overly romantic or melancholy. It just has that thematic background to it that rather heightens the piece.

there have been a few times in my life where i had a pretty severe fever/flu and i'd be listening to music and depending on the tone, i'd experience either relaxation or extreme discomfort/anxiety/panic.

...

a lot of Descendents/ALL songs make me feel a lot more positive and stuff. like i can actually accomplish something.

i guess i should just make a playlist and have it play on repeat 24/7 so i can make it through the day.

Svefn-G-Englar by Sigur Ros has bought me very close to tears. Such a great song and, despite not knowing any of the lyrics, it still feels powerful. Especially when the climax comes in for 20 seconds

Gun's N' Roses' cover of Knocking on Heavens Door is just a really feel good song for me. Even though it's a pretty strange song to feel good about. It's very nostalgic since my dad was a fan of GNR when I was a kid and he would play that song on the car stereo whenever we were on a mid-summer holiday. It takes me back to a time when all I needed to worry about was to sit back and enjoy life. When I'm really stressed at work, I give it an occasional listen and it legit helps to calm me down. In fact, most of what's on AFD has that same effect for the same reason.

Another one that's cliche as fuck but is undeniably incredible is Alter Bridge's Blackbird. I don't think that one warrants an explanation. that song is just so powerful.

The first time I heard "to live is to die" by Metallica when I bought "and justice for all". 

I had never heard the cd before and I had bought it because I knew I liked "One" a lot. Now when that part starting at around 4:28 seconds of "to live is to die" played for my ears for the first time it hit me hard as a teenager. It was 1998 and I was 14. Anything and everything sad I had ever felt came out as a huge rush. I remember being confused because that's the first time music had actual brought tears to my eyes. The song helped me through my teenage depression a lot and in fact a lot of Metallica's discography did. Well "To live is to die" hold a special place in my heart. Whenever I was sad I'd play it and it would make me more sad, but it would pull it all out. After about and hour of listening to that song I'd somehow feel much better.

Damn, I think I've heard this song before, but I've never known the band or the name or anything, glad I listened to this.

The Sinking Of The Titanic would be the centrepiece of the concert. Bryars created a more traditional score for the work and used the Episcopal hymn Autumn as the basis of the work, based on the testimony of wireless operator Harold Bride, although there was some discussion that it may have been actually Aughton that was heard. Bryars incorporated fragments of Aughton and other tunes reportedly heard on the ship.

First time I listened to de loused in the comatorium sort of blew my mind. Plus listening to only in dreams by weezer is an awesome feeing especially the last like 4 minutes which is such a good close to an amazing album.
