    I've got a better one...... well sort of....... the Kennedy Center tribute to Led Zeppelin.

    The band now is considerably older... Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones.... then you may remember as they sit in the audience waiting for their final tribute.

    Here is what you will see and experience: The Final song is Stairway to Heaven.

    Heart........ with Nancy and Ann's vocal and guitar and Jason Bonham on drums is only the start. Slowly each section of the song adds more performers.

    It starts to peak with the colossal Jimmy Page guitar solo...some consider maybe the greatest rock solo ever. It's really short so you need to pay attention.

    Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, along with Jason Bonham, playing Stairway to Heaven as a tribute.

    Robert Plant looks concerned having women sing his song and in general looks upset at the presentation of Stairway to Heaven.....until.

    The Jimmy Page solo by one of the Kennedy Center's core of musicians nails the solo. Page's look of joy told everyone he loved the performance.

    During all of this time singers were slowly coming on stage. After the Page solo you can see the families of Zed LEP can't believe their eye's. The stage now has another 30 to 40 more singers who were hidden.

    This was a great tribute and performance. If heaven is anything like this..... count me in.

    The 'goosebumps' sensation when hearing some music (or watching some film for that matter) is a real thing, known as a Tingle Quotient (TQ)

    The most well known and famous of these is probably the 'climax' of Nessum Dorma, the penultimate sustained high B note of 'Vincero!"

    My most palpable TQ is Sanvean by Dead Can Dance. Considering Lisa Gerard basically invented a language to serve as the vehicle for the music is remarkable.

    In my life there have many TQ moments, especially musically, but listen to this. To me, its a moving reminder that the most powerful musical instrument will always be the human voice.

    That one song about bees getting molested always got me.

    Iwantoutnow mentioned Pavarotti, and that reminded me of this ...


    Pavarotti sings in the middle and it's beautiful. What a voice!

    This along with the earlier one I posted, Robert Miles' Children, are two at the top of my list.

    This is Emma Shaplin's Spente Le Stelle:

    Under No - Sanvean was in a great West Wing episode.

    Chill worthy for sure.

    Yes I remember the episode.

    I think the combination of the music and the image of the sheer mass of lit candles and flowers being laid out for Zoey Bartlett was a double chill moment. Inspired soundtrack choice.
