Just wondering what everyone's favorite piece of recorded music might be. I'm not looking for a song or album. Just a particular moment that transcends all else. Maybe it's a riff. Maybe it's a single lyric. It might be the way a song fades out for all I know.
My personal favorite would be on James Brown: Live at the Apollo when he finally and completely wins over the crowd on Lost Someone. Up to that point you could sense the adoration and excitement, but it had yet to be taken to the next level. That moment about halfway into the song where the connection between performer and crowd becomes its own entity. Nowhere is this best encapsulated than with that single piercing shriek ushered by some nameless woman -- followed by laughter from some and shouts of approval from others.
