    There are so many, it’s hard to know where to begin. But it’s hard to top Klaus Nomi’s debut performance — a precious thing, even with the poor recording quality:

    MUTTY1 Waste of bandwidth

    It’s probably rare in isolation ie listening to a recording. Much more likely at a live event or listening to a piece of music you have heard live.

    Some Ennio Morricone tracks, particularly when I saw him play live for the first time

    Lullaby in Ragtime, either Danny Kaye or Harry Nilsson,
    Elgar, Elegy, Op.58
    Elgar, Sospiri, Op.70
    In the Bleak Midwinter. The Kanneh - Mason version I just heard sounds great, must look it out.

    Tecumseh / Tecumsah Valley, Townes Van Zandt, either version but especially the one on our mother the mountain, always gets to me when he sings 'they found her down...'. Not sure why really, just does.

    And a lot of Schubert my favourite composer eg the ghostly echo of the theme in the development section of the first movement of d960. Or the opening of the piano duet d940. Or any number of songs!
