    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Tons of songs...

    XX - Infinity
    Pink Floyd - Great Gig in the Sky
    Pulp - This is Hardcore
    Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
    Beatles - Happiness is a Warm Gun

    Hard to think of them off the top of my head, but it happens quite frequently.

    I think the common thread here is songs with a crescendo/climax near the end - all four of the ones I mentioned have that, and that's when I get the chills.

    Edit: Also Tom Waits - Alice, which has no climax. Hmm...

Brought the CD home and wanted to play it for my brother and we loved it. Played it on repeat for about 5 hours. Probably the most time I've spent with him for a while. He died in a car crash the next day

    "From My Hands" off Of Faith, Power and Glory is fantastic, too. Incredibly eloquent and touching. This has certainly given me a few chills today:

    They don't really come to Ireland that much (last time was 2007, I think), even though Ronan's from bloody Wexford. Skipping us by again next month.
