what song gives you the chills?

Recommended Posts

mine is "freedom" by Charles Mingus.. if you haven't heard it, check it out.. it's amazing

 

Charles Mingus "Epitaph"... "Freedom" is a composition with narration, comprising a free verse poem typical of Mingus' remarkable poetic imagination and power of verbal metaphoric expression:

 

This mule ain't from Moscow, this mule ain't from the South,

But this mule's got some learning - mostly from mouth to mouth.

This mule could be called stubborn and lazy.

But in a clever sort of way, this mule's been

waiting and planning,

And working - in seclusion - for a sacred kind of day.

the day that burning sticks - or crosses - is not mere child's play.

but a madman in his most incandescent bloom whose loveless soul,

Is imperfection in its most lustrous bloom.

 

Stand fast, old mule, soothe in contemplation,

Thy burning hole and aching thigh.

That your stubbornness is of the living

And cruel anxiety is about to die.

Stand fast young old mule. Stand fast.

 

The band (as congregation) then sings in moaning church style:

 

"Freedom for your mama, freedom for your daddy, freedom for your brother and sister, but no freedom for me." ...

"Pure Imagination" by Willy Wonka is pretty creepy

 

Come with me

And you'll be

In a world of

Pure imagination

Take a look

And you'll see

Into your imagination

 

We'll begin

With a spin

Traveling in

The world of my creation

What we'll see

Will defy

Explanation

 

If you want to view paradise

Simply look around and view it

Anything you want to, do it

Wanta change the world?

There's nothing

To it

 

There is no

Life I know

To compare with

Pure imagination

Living there

You'll be free

If you truly wish to be

 

If you want to view paradise

Simply look around and view it

Anything you want to, do it

Wanta change the world?

There's nothing

To it

 

There is no

Life I know

To compare with

Pure imagination

Living there

You'll be free

If you truly

Wish to be

i know that list is long and ridiculous and probably seems like i just rattled off songs that i like a lot, but ive sat in a dark room listening every single one of them on repeat, or drove with the windows down, doing 120 on the freeway playing it super loud. i like music, it helps to make sense of the the things i dont like.
