Oh, lots!

First time I heard Springsteen sing Darkness on the Edge of Town.

First time I heard Prince sing When Doves Cry.

We Go On from IllumiNations!

Lot's more, too many to mention or I'd be here for hours.

Re 9/11, two records really helped me, U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind, and Springsteen's The Rising. So much hope in both. Seeing Springsteen perform songs from The Rising in concert was pretty powerful for me.

The first one to come to mind was seeing Alabama a month or so after 9/11 and they sang 'America the Beautiful". Randy cried and there wasn't a dry eye in the place(we were in NY)

Another one was seeing U2 and the whole audience kept on singing Bad all the way into the parking lot. Very, very cool.

I cry every time I hear Sunshine on my Shoulders by John Denver. Reminds me of my childhood and my Daddy who died.

Did this thread ever hit home for me! Right around the time that my grandfather died (we were very close), Josh Groban's song called, "To Where You Are" was being played on the radio constantly. I'm sure the lyrics apply to all of us who have lost someone special in their lives.

Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memory's so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be (?)
That you are my
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dream
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'Cause you are my
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I am also a music person, and use music to go with my many moods. My current favorite jaw-dropping song is "Animals" by Nickelback.

Music is such an emotional experience for me, that I rarely listen to music unless it's live. Music just isn't "background" to me--it's engulfing.

A few music moments....

Savannah Music Festival 2005 at Mandolin Madness--hearing 5 of the top mandolin players in the country in concert-I looked over at my DH at one point and was startled. I had not been conscious of where I was and who I was with! It was an amazing experience.

Another mandolin moment...seeing Mike Marshall on stage giving a mandolin workshop (almost typed a freudian slip of "worship" )-he is the most amazing and charismatic musician.

Once at Epcot watching The British Invasion...it was an after-dark set, and with the help of the special vibes in the air, pixie dust, and a couple of glasses of champagne, I truly felt transported back to the 60s, as if I were listening to the Beatles..

There have been many more, but these are the most recent.

I am very moved by most good music. It doesn't take much

But for me it would be most Sunday's in church. We have a very contemporary worship and my DH is the worship leader. My son also plays in the worship band. They are very good and the songs are just so inspiring and moving, I cry just about every service.

But it's not just church music, I can be watching American Idol and one of the contestants has a good night and I get all misty-eyed.

Also certain very old songs, because they remind me of my childhood. Both my parents are gone now and every year when I hear Bing Crosby sing White Christmas, I just lose it.

Music is entwined with our happiest memories, and our saddest.

Martina McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes" got a lot of airplay on my local station last spring. I have two daughers. I was going through a rough time last spring, and that song just made things right.

Remember the concert right after 9/11, it was on t.v.? Billy Joel sang "New York State of Mind", and I lost it.

And I will always remember the romantic evening I had with...well, his name isn't important...every time I hear "total Eclipse of the Heart" -- it was playing on the radio while we had drinks at the bar...

My wedding reception- the Ricky martin song "The Cup of Life" was playing, everyone was on the dance floor and I will never forget how happy I was that everyone wa having a good time that I was literally jumping up and down screaming in that pure unadulterated joy feeling. Sounds corny but it was amazing.....

Also- Bruce Springsteen in Giants Stadium singing Born to Run in 2003....

When I first heard DD20's heartbeat in the doc's office, We Are The World was on the music system. big moment!
Minnie, you made me think of another one. I first KNEW I was pregnant (before I even took a pregnancy test) when I was out driving one day and played Elton John's "Blessed" on the CD player in my car. I had this wierd feeling come over me and I played the song 3 or 4 more times.

I love hearing the Epcot entrance music, and Illuminations. Those songs really do things to me!

And I always get excited for our upcoming DCL cruise when I hear "Cup of Life" by Ricky Martin, "Why Can't I" by Liz Phair and "Perfect Day" by Hoku. I can just picture myself up on deck at the sailaway party now!

Cool! Also, most Brahms I take up just makes me swoon.... When I performed his Requiem last year, there were parts that were so beautiful that my eyes watered up.

Bach sometimes leaves me dizzy because it feels like I'm doing algebra and singing at the same time. His stuff is so textured and complex that you somehow feel smarter after doing it.

Now Beethoven.....WOO! His music is just so DEEP! Unfortunately, he didn't write very much for us 'throats'. The only piece I'ver ever done was his Choral Fantasia and it was fun floating long, high notes in that triumphant piece. His piano compositions are what really move me though.
