A couple of years ago, I went to a classical Indian Music recital by a renowned artist, known the world over. Halfway through the program, I started shivering and tears fell from my eyes. A similar thing happened at another such concert.
Today, while listening to The Piano Guys' renedition of Fight Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI097WG274Q while walking across the street I had a hard time fighting back my tears.


Is this weird or does this happen to others?

Yes. When I listen to music, especially certain parts, I get that shivering feeling, and it honestly feels nice

Oh yeah, typical for people who enjoy classical music :). The shivering part actually happens at least once every time I listen to classical music.

Yeah, when I listen to music with a great story in it or behind it I can get shivers, if I can relate to it or it just gives me strong emotions.

I also like listening to classical music. When I am studying I will listen to calming pieces like Smetana's "Moldau", Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata", or Tchaikovsky's "The Seasons". I enjoy listening to some operas too.

I definitely get goosebumps and shivers when certain parts of songs are played. Often it is when the part is filled with absolute emotion, only a few vocalists can pull off showing true emotion in their voices.

This definitely does happen to me, I'm getting all shivery listening to that song haha. I've never had both though. I've only either done one at a time; the shivers or the crying. I get the shivers all the time, especially if there's a really pretty note/harmony/melody. I only ever cry with music if it gives me nostalgia, or when I'm feeling down and the music's slowness emphasizes my low mood in some way.

I feel the powerful lines come alive. They hurt in my heart. There's a special magic to strong lyrics

Tbh I also get eargasms but I feel them in my butt which is yeah. Also one particular song (Beware the friendly stranger by Boards of Canada) gives me ASMR like effects which is cool

Certain hip hop songs make me relaxed when im stressed out. But sometimes I get a little sad (not like crying or that emotional) when i remember 2Pac and Biggie are gone.
