10 Songs that will surely strike Frisson in your head – Music

Here’s the list of 10 wonderful melodies, which will surely put a magic spell on you and will help your mood like anything. These songs are known to evoke Frisson in human body, but first and foremost, you need to have the clear meaning of Frisson.

The French word ‘Frission’ is defined as “a sudden, passing sensation of excitement; a shudder of emotion;” which is often be felt when hearing a particularly moving song, or watching emotionally fraught moments in movies. Although it is real life phenomenon
but ‘for many’ it’s hard to link it to real life. It is hard to explain this way but you will get an easy demonstration through these songs, which actually cause Frisson. Here’s the list:

1 – Festival – Sigur Rose

An ethereal-sounding post-rock band from beautiful country Iceland, which has the elements of minimal and classical.  Sigur Ros exemplifies why people are rightfully enthralled and terrified by Iceland.

2- Hurt – Johnny Cash

This song was originally sung by the “Nine Inch Nails” but Johnny Cash covered the song. It is a clear view of his past and feelings of regret.

3 – Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley

Jeff Buckley recorded this Leonard Cohen cover in 1994. And for your information, the definition of hallelujah is, “a musical composition wholly or principally based upon the word ‘Hallelujah.’” In other words: Hallelujah! We can say that Jeff Buckley covered
the hallelujah “Hallelujah.

4 – Going to California – Lez Zeppelin

Listen closely what the artist says. . . “What are you tryin’ to tell me here, little man? That you don’t like Zep?” — Brock Samson, fictional character

5 – Ungarische Phantasie – Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt was a 19th century composer, conductor, and piano virtuoso, which is true, but inaccurate, considering the guy was an absolute rock star.

6- Hands away – Interpole

An indie rock band coming from New York City, Interpole, knows the music.

7 – All neon like – Bjork

An absorbing and terrifying melody, you will definitely enjoy.

8 – Danse Macabre – Camille Saint-Saens

According to legend, Death appears every year at midnight on Halloween, and raises the dead to dance for him until dawn. Danse Macabre is a figurative representation of this: the violin solo is the devil fiddling, the xylophone represents the rattling bones
of the dead, and the oboe at the very end is the rooster’s crow signaling dawn.

And you thought classical music was boring.

9 – Mars, the Bringer of War – Gustav Holst

Fake history: One time, Gustav Holst wondered what the planets  would sound like if they were music. From 1914-1916, he worked to come up with an unscientific but very entertaining musical work. This is only one piece from the seven-movement piece.

Interesting fact: There are only seven movements because Earth did not get one, and Pluto was getting cold dissed even back then. (Actually, Pluto wasn’t discovered until 1930).

10 – Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallies – Vaughan Williams

This piece, composed in 1910, is scored to resemble an organ in sound by dividing the orchestra into three separate sections.

*p.s. In fact, if you can get through the whole list without feeling a single shiver of excitement, you might want to get a Voight-Kampff test because you’re a robot, fam.
