    I get chills (it's electrifying), but it has to be the right song at the right time.

    I have read that people do. It never worked for me, though.

    Wow...thank you!

    This happened to me last night when I was listening to Celia Cruz's "Quimbara". Here is the video link:

    Consistent chills at 0:10-0:15

    Her voice!

    Azucar!

    I always thought my reaction to music was strange. The music doesn't matter, either. No particular genre will trigger it. Just certain songs. It gives me a feeling of being alive. I really don't know how to describe it without sounding nutty.

    Awwwwww. I used to cry during this ASPCA commercial we have in Texas. It's a kitten walking alone down some railroad tracks with "What becomes of the broken hearted" playing.

    I don't get chills, I don't think, but I definitely am moved to tears by music quite often, and it's not always because of lyrics.

    Do you keep your eyes open when you cry or do you close them? I dated an INTP once and it really unnerved me that she would just cry with her eyes open. Tears just emerging from starkly open eyes.

    Well, this is just tearing up to a musical experience. Not outright sobbing on the floor. It would seem weird to close my eyes and sob like a baby to a song on the radio. So, eyes open, but not like a dead fish or anything.

    Are you teasing me?

    It's not the content. It's some involuntary physical thing to do with frequencies or something.

    Not at all. This is the kindler, gentler Synarch I am working toward.
