Little Musical Moments That Make Me Very Happy
When Ray Charles hits that little half-falsetto bit ("whoa-ohhhh-ohh") in "Georgia On My Mind", right after the bridge and just before the last verse. How he starts that sung moan in regular voice but immediately jumps up into falsetto at the drop of a dime. Gives me chills.
The whistled outro melody on Otis Redding's"Sitting On the Dock of the Bay". I still remember first hearing that on the radio when I was a kid, and how delighted I was that he was whistling.
The harmonized "I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, baby I love you" from Aretha Franklin's "Baby I Love You".
From the Guided By Voices lo-fi masterpiece Bee Thousand: I love how acoustic intro "Tractor Rape Chain", recorded at a slightly different tempo, at a different time, with a totally different ambient sonic character, is clumsily tacked on to the beginning of the song. Was it a genuine, straight-faced attempt at doing something along the lines of "Stairway To Heaven", or a tongue-in-cheek parody of the "acoustic intro" to a rock song? Doesn't matter, it's gloriously perfect either way.
