So I’m gonna try a new thing. Each Friday, I’m going to share with you something that makes me feel frisson. What is frisson, you ask?
frissonnoun fris·son \frē-ˈsōⁿ\
Simple Definition of frisson
a sudden strong feeling or emotion
I’m a big fan of frisson. I would just call it “goosebumps”, and didn’t really differentiate between being cold and having that thrill go through you. I knew it was different, but I didn’t know how to describe it.Since I’ve learned what this amazing feeling actually is, I notice it more and more.
Since I’ve learned what this amazing feeling actually is, I notice it more and more. While searching for the youtube video to share with you, I saw an advert for Fallout 4 and felt frisson then!
So for this week’s Frisson Friday, I want to introduce you to Malukah (if you don’t already know of her). She is a wonderful singer and musician who posts covers of game and television songs on YouTube. She has so many songs to choose from, but I have to stay faithful to my favourite gaming series. Reignite is a mix of many Mass Effect songs, with Malukah’s own lyrics. Please take a moment to appreciate her beautiful song, and glance down at your arms to see the hair stand on end. That is frisson.
I hope you enjoyed this song and please send me anything that gives you frisson too. If you tweet about this, please use #frissonfriday!
