Sometimes it was simply the clack of the turnstiles at Burnden,or the sight and smell of a steam train as we left for a family holiday,but there are certain sights and sounds that literally make my hair stand on end.I could go on and on,but I'm sure you all have your own. I certainly can't watch or hear these beauties without fillin' up.

It still makes me come over all goosepimply when the announcer pipes up with "Welcome to the Reebok Macron Stadium, the home, of course, of Bolton Wanderers."

Did the touristy helicopter flight into the Grand Canyon a few years ago and it was incredible.

First time in a chopper, the awe-inspiring scale of the canyon and the pilot was piping the theme from Superman through the headphones as we swooped down.

I was like a kid again and couldn't stop grinning throughout the entire flight.

Brilliant!

That's fucking incredible!

That film was shot 5 days before we did our flight and its the same company we flew with!

Unbelievable!

Cheers for posting that, Boncey.

Another one is when the Welsh crowd start singing their anthem before an international match in their home stadium. None of the other countries has the same effect.

Being in the National Stadium when the Anthem is sung here in Jamaica does it for me.

When Mrs Passi says "come to bed early Mr Passi".

Sadly now only a yearly event.

Not heard one being tested for decades, here in UK.  But in The Netherlands they always test their air-raid system on a monthly basis.  All of them are tested on first Monday of the month at midday!    That was weird to hear at first but soon got used to it, with it happening each month.

I'm not a huge fan of classical music but hearing Nessa Dorma (sic?) being sung well at top note makes the hairs on my neck stand up.

I watched Michael Gove on the Andrew Marr show on BBC 1 this morning. He needs a makeover because his side parting and big spectacles make him look decidedly dodgy.

Goosebumps? Tin Angel by Joni Mitchell; the last couple of minutes of the award-winning film Babel; Alexandra Burke and Beyoncé singing Listen; Martin Kaymer's winning putt at the last Ryder Cup in Medina; Jade Jones winning gold at the Olympics 2012; the anonymous poem Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Mary Elizabeth Frye (1932)

I really think I'm a soft git emotionally sometimes.
Basically anything where true love wins the day, wrongs are righted, the underdog comes through against all the odds, human nature shows it's better side, justice is done - anything at all like that even if it's in a crap film has me twitching.

Sluffy, I've never seen a named poet credited with Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep. As far as I have been aware, the poem was left in an envelope for his parents by Steven Cummins, a soldier killed on active service in Northern Ireland, to be opened in the event of his death. It is not thought that he wrote it himself, and claims that it is part of the prayers of Navaho Indian priests have proved false too. In the end, its origins remain a mystery......unless you know better.......    What I do know is that it is mighty hard not to experience some sort of frisson when it is read with feeling at a funeral, as has become commonplace.

Ahh...Wikipedia tells me you're quite right, Sluffy. I didn't realise that Frye had been attributed with authorship in 1998.
