Poll: Scores That Give You Goosebumps

You know that sensation that just starts in your neck, a cold little thrill that goes all over your living body and makes you forget for one brief moment where you are... and you just leave the film, leave the place you are... and let the music leave its movie and you just live the music, whatever that strange sentence means.

That's the power of music, that's the power of many scores that transcended their film and became something that inhabits you: they all have one thing in common, a specific moment that sends shivers down your spine and inspire your heart a cocktail of exhilarating sensations. These are the scores that give you goosebumps.

Which of these powerful scores* has got the strongest effect on you?
