What music brings out your emotions?

It's probably been said earlier in the thread but with me it's where I was when the music was playing and the memory chord it strikes. Janis Ian's 'Jesse' takes me to Lake Bala on a sunny morning driving through the Welsh Hills with all my life before me and when I hear 'White Dress' I'm back at Cropredy for Fairport Convention's first festival. Just been playing 'Let It Be Me', my favourite Everly's song. I like the original though, not one of the later versions recorded at concerts. Someone once wrote 'Nostalgia is a pleasant kind of ache' and how right they were.

Let it be me was originally a French song but nowhere near as good as the Everlys.

Had the great pleasure of seeing CHER last night in Toronto. She looks and sounds incredible...I haven't seen her live since she appeared on Ready Steady Go with Sonny Bono doing I GOT YOU BABE. She actually did this song with a simulated duet with Sonny, I got a real kick out of this.

Recently in need of a lift, I picked up a "last night" from a couple of years ago on youtube. The conductor that night was Finnish and "Finlandia" was being played. I believe a hymn called "Be still my soul" was taken from this piece. Lovely bit of music.
