    Can't believe no one's mentioned Shen/Zhao '03.

    This whole program. Especially the last footwork sequence. Always, always gives me chills.

    Also, I second Jason Brown's Y-spiral into 'tano. I audibly sighed when he did it at SOI and my friend gave me a weird look. Oops.

    This always makes me teary to watch, based entirely on how much turmoil the year before was for her…

    I was going to mention it actually, it is my all-time goose bumps, especially the ending.

    Shen and Zhao, 2003. I was there. People were still teary-eyed and in awe on the Metro the next two days. It is one of those amazing moments that leave you breathless.

    Wow. Just wow. The speed, the height of the jumps, and especially the unison of their SBS jumps -- exquisite. Made me teary, too. Many, many thanks, UnsaneLily.

    TMC -- I love cats and have a special weakness for the tuxedo variety. The one in your avatar is a cutie!

    Edit: judging from the comments on YouTube, those of us getting weepy at this performance have lots of company. It really was one for the ages; right up there with some of G&G's best, which is not a comparison to be made lightly.

    You lucky duck. I agree about this one: even just on TV or YouTube, it does indeed move one to tears.

    These 2 blasts from the pasts are on my personal "goosebump" list.

    Klimova/Ponomarenko '92 Olympics LP

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRNgq4cQIU8

    John Curry/Cathy Foulkes from a 1979 BBC show. Discovered it very recently thanks to a recommendation from another GS thread; I'm rarely @ a loss for words but this just left me speechless...

    My recent goose bumps may sound weird... it is the final 2 jump passes of Hanyu's 2014 Worlds LP, which clearly had some issues (Here starting from 03:30 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP6N31F9nzQ#t=209). The reason is it shows how he wants it.

    The 3Lz1Lo3S combination, after watching the awkward 3Lz landing I just thought "alright, done deal, he just lost it, congrats to Machida", but then he made the 3S out of nothing. "How he did that? I have no idea". And amazingly, because he had some problem with the jumps which slowed down the speed, as a result each of the landings hit the right note of the music:P

    Then the final 3Lz, it was the only time of this season that he showed emotion by making a fist after landing it. At that moment I knew he was going to make it. And again, the landing and the gesture just hit the right note of music, which I like so much:P

    OK were I not in the Arena that day, I might not be that impressed. But still goose bumps to that determination to get something you really want.

    Viktor Petrenko's Carmen SP from the '91 Worlds. I know a lot of people are Carmen-ed out, but his is perfection, especially the 3axel-3toe combination.

    for me, Narumi Takahashi and Mervin Tran's Worlds 2012 LP gave me the goosebumps (who knew that would be their last competition together. still so sad about their split; they were one of my favorite pairs). it wasn't perfect but the passion they put into it gave me the chills. and of course, their adorable reactions in the K&C
