Has there ever been a song that, when you hear it, the song sends chills down your spine every time? For Bob Boilen, it's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes?" written by Sandy Denny and performed by Fairport Convention. You can hear that on this edition of All Songs Considered and tell us the song that gives you chills — no matter what — on the blog. Also on the program: the sharp guitar playing of Sarah Siskind; adventures in sound with Black Moth Super Rainbow; the 12-string guitar explorations of James Blackshaw; the heavy emotions of Dinosaur Jr.; and the electronic-pop music of Passion Pit.
