the Eno one that does it for me is "Everything Merges with the Night", I feel funny just thinking about it

The live version of 'Silver Springs', when it transitions into the 'Time has cast a spell on you...' section.

The moment in the Scott Walker track on Climate Of Hunter when he sings 'And the ceiling is rising and falling' and the swarm of Evan Parker soprano saxes comes in.

The final section of George Crumb's Music For A Summer Evening sno cone maker (Jon Lewis), Friday, 27 April 2012 19:06 (five years ago) Permalink

fuller list, off the top of my brain:

Parliment - The Silent Boatman (bagpipes)
Autechre - Silverside (the ending, where you finally get to hear the entire melody)
Soul Coughing - Lazybones (the entire thing is so damn heavy)
Devo - Race of Doom (don't know why. something about the way the synths intersect with the rhythm gets me)
ELP - From the Beginning (everything about it is gorgeous, but especially Emerson's solo in the end)
Faust - No Harm (the scream at the end)
Underworld - Most 'Ospitable (the whole thing)
Underworld - Jumbo ("Telephone breath between us/there are no borders between us/Only these wires")
Happy Mondays - Dennis and Lois ("Honey, how's your breathing/If it stops for good we'll believe it")
Kraftwerk - Neon Lights (the onslaught of shimmering major chords that make up the second half)
Yellow Magic Orchestra - Gradated Gray (great song with an inexplicably creepy atmosphere)
The Books - Getting the Job Done (when the vocals come in)
Can - Oh Yeah (when the rhythm section really kicks in, 2 minutes in)
Gary Numan - Complex (mostly the intro, but really everything)
Neu! - Isi (c'mon, nobody can disagree with this)
Michael Jackson - Stranger in Moscow (already mentioned, but holy cow, this is a monster)
Boredoms - 7 (from VCN - when the guitar chords finally come in, braaang brooong)
Harry Nilsson - Morning Glory Story (gosh the vocals are pretty on this one)
Todd Rundgren - When the Shit Hits the Fan ("I think I have to get my ass back to Sunset Boulevard")

#1 tune along these lines (the one that makes me feel funny the whole time) is here

As we've just had the kinks poll, might as well mention the moment in Shangri-La after the horns do a rall and tando, all grandiose magificience, and Ray comes back: "put on your slippers and sit by the fire..."
