This is a place to share music that has given you the shivers. Here are a few of mine. I find them beautiful and thoughtful.

I love the story, Wuthering Heights. It is neo gothic is nature and so beautifully written. Cliff Richard really did a wonderful job bringing it to life. Not big on his acting skills however his soft toned voice is perfect for the story.

This one is debated to be one of the last songs played on the Titanic while it was sinking. I had two relatives on that ship so this one is hauntingly beautiful to me for many reasons.

Songe d'Autmone (Dream of Autumn) was composed by Archibald Joyce (25 May 1873 to 22 March 1963). Joyce, popularly known as the "English Waltz King", had considerable success in England with this piece which was included in the repertoire for White Star Line orchestra's.

And finally one from Aotearoa from Oceania; a Maori band that mixes traditional with modern.

Quite possibly the creepiest piece of classical music (A Night on Bald Mountain/A Night on Bare Mountain):






Nearly perfect background music... for a KKK rally and night ride.

Not quite sure about a "sacred feminine" characteristic. Did he explain what he meant by that? I was in the kapa haka when i was a child and loved the Maori dances we were taught. But boy does it make you sore with all the slapping and that includes the poi. But i ended up being very good with the poi. Pretty cool what you can do with it and the effect is wicked when people around you are also doing the same poi rhythm with you. It is a dance in its own right that is sort of like a beat (like a drum) but very different.

Sacred feminine would encompass things like care of ecosystems, brotherly love, care of children, an animist sensibility of spiritual awareness, things of that nature.

Regarding poi. Funny how the same word means different things on different island chains. In the Hawaiian Islands "poi" is a sort of mush made from taro root. I happen to like it but it's definitely an acquired taste.

Ah I see. Yes that is definitely the maori which many of us European pacific islanders admire. It is part of our shared culture here so you can imagine it would have fit right in with our hippies. It is always a big topic here. Keeping NZ green. Shame not all of our politicians care about that issue.

Haha yes the poi is definitely not a food here! That would be just considered kai here. This is what poi means here. Women generally are the ones who use the poi while the men chant and take on the masculine defensive role. It is impressive.
