"It has been shown in "Thrills in Response to Music and Other Stimuli" (1980) that some experiencing musical frisson report reduced excitement when under administration of naloxone (an opioid receptor antagonist), suggesting musical frisson gives rise to endogenous opioid peptides similar to other pleasurable experiences." --Sholem Stein


"Thus the same manifestations are to be observed in each case : cries, songs, music, violent movements, dances, the search for exciteants which raise the vital level, etc."--The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life (1912) by Émile Durkheim, tr. Joseph Swain

An explosion is a violent release of energy (sometimes mechanical, nuclear, or chemical.) Metaphorically, also used to denote a sudden increase or emotional outburst
