I Want To Know What Love Is

I'm sorry Mariah, but you didn't do this song justice IMHO. Foreigner's version (the original version) gives me goosebumps!

So, what song gives you goosebumps?


  1. I LOVE that song! I didn't know there was a remake O_o

    Songs that really affect me and I love:
    In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel
    Slave Song - Sade
    SeƱales de Humo - Juan Luis Guerra
    Almohada - Ivan Lopez
    The Prayer - Andrea Bocelli/Celine Dion
    Preciosa - Marc Anthony

  2. Mad World as sung by Gary Jules - I like it much, much better than the Tears for Fears original.

    I will Not Sing a Hateful Song by the Constantines

    There's So Much Energy in Us by Cloud Cult

  3. Mariana - it's a great song, isn't it? *grin* Yes, there was a remake...and every time I hear it I wish for the original :) Peter Gabriel - love him. My favourite song of his is a duet - Don't Give Up - with Kate Bush.

    Chris - Mad World is a great song. Actually, IIRC Adam Lambert sung it during American Idol and he knocked it out of the park :) I must confess to loving me some Tears for Fears. I'm so an 80s chick at heart :)

  4. I didn't even know Mariah Carey did a remake of that.

    I couldn't say specifically what song gives me chills. There're a lot. Probably "One," the Mary J. Blige version.

  5. I love this song. I used to listen to Foreigner all the time!

    It's an older one but Little Wing always gives me the chills. I first heard it done by a cover band 20 years ago and have loved it ever since. I think I like Stevie Ray Vaughn's instrumental version better than Henrix's original version. lol

  6. heidenkind - I haven't heard of Mary J Bilge's version of One. Normally I run away from U2 remakes, but 30 Seconds to Mars has taught me that it can work. I will hunt it down :)

    Tracy - I love Foreigner too :)
