Weird effect of music
The soundtrack of the move "Sunshine" (Dir Danny Boyle) by John Murphy is some of the most evocative and beautiful music I've come across. One piece in particular, used around the death of the captain and again when Cillian Murphy is detaching the payload and jumping on to it. It's called Adagio in D Minor.
I knew I loved that piece and bought it on iTunes, then sat down to listen to it, full volume. Thank God I was at home! Within minutes tears were streaming down my cheeks, not sad tears, not happy tears. I can't describe or explain what happened, except that I seemed to be "feeling" the music rather than hearing it. I had a physical feeling in the pit of my stomach that rose and fell as the music rose and fell.
It's the most extreme reaction I've ever had to a piece of music and I'm still surprised and baffled by the power of it.

Re: Weird effect of music
If you scout around youtube, you should find the clip from the film that goes with it, the death of the captain. The images combined with the music are typical Danny Boyle or even Tarantino, a very perfect match.
