    Default What expressions can be used to say something really win your hearts?

    For example, when new single (of song) released is really cool in you opinion, and it touches you, or you feel it's very decent,

    what expressions can be used?

    I would like to know in both polite and informal way(like when talking with friends).

    I saw people said "it's f***ing ......" like this when they really like the song.

    What others can be used?

    what expressions can be used?
    "it is touching"
    "it really hit me at home"
    "it won my heart"
    informal: "it was sweet or sick or rad" - haha these are slang terms but they work.
    "it was inspiring"

    These are all reasonably polite and informal.

    Oh, my god! Have you heard that new song/CD/download by ABC?
    It just blew my mind!
    I could not believe my ears!
    I played it over and over! I couldn't get enough of the lead vocals.
    I was blown away by the bass solo!
    Wow!/Amazing/Unbelievable:
    (Use whatever slang term is current among your friends to express high approval: It is sick/rad/awesome/bad/way cool/etc., but don't use these terms unless you know how they sound to your audience. This kind of slang will sound out-of-date and very uncool to those who have moved on to the next 'in' expression).

    More formal praise will include specific support for your opinion:

    'I loved the way the new songs echoed her first work.'
    'His voice shows remarkable depth of emotion without being sentimental.'

    I saw people said "it's f***ing ......" like this when they really like the song.
    Please be careful with this. Many people consider it vulgar, and what is worse, it is lazy and reflects a shallowness of thought. That being said, if you know your hearers well, it may be perfectly acceptable.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra

    The kids are now saying "massive" when they like something.

    Instead of "that's amazing", they are saying "that's massive".

    To describe something that has captured your heart, there's nothing I hear more commonly than "I love it".

    People really say they love things a lot.

    "I love that album!"
    "I love that movie!"
    "I love that artist!"

    It's very common to say you love things when you are very excited about them.

    It could be

    She's the one.

    She's the bomb. <She's very beautiful.>

    She takes my breath away.
