Clannad or Moya?

Postby deathrug » Wed Dec 07, 2005 8:43 pm

I was wondering . . . . if you could only choose between Clannad or Moya as a solo artist, which would it be?

Heya deathrug,

hm...a really difficult question, because I like Clannad AND Moya...so it's impossible for me to make a choice.

I find it also quite a challenge to choose, but thinking that the band has been the base of Moya's solo career, I chose form Clannad.

Oh wow deathrug - that is NOT a choice I can make!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I adore Clannad and Moya :shock: I will vote, and I'll vote Clannad, but only because I listen to them more - and the only reason for that is that I have more albums, and I NEVER stop listening to music, or so it seems :lol:

Also, their harp pieces are rather useful, as I'm learning to play one or two myself

Moya still RULES always though :wink:

Hmmm, very difficult choice to make. Of course I love both but if I HAD to make a choice I would choose Clannad because of the song "Caislean Oir" and the remix of it on the "Chilled" CD.

Moya's vocals together with her brothers and uncles was a perfect blend, not to mention the harp ;)

Forgot really to add before, or wasn't sure how to put it....hey, sorry, it's been a long day :) Clannad has Moya's vocals, and that is the BIG thing to me - they are comforting, relaxing and beautiful, doesn't matter if it's solo work or Clannad :)

Personally, i couldnt chose either :lol: but i do think that moya wouldnt be the soloist she is today without clannad's background and influence on her music. Equally, I dont think clannad would be who they are without moyas influence to the band.

*Beats Deathrug with very large stick* :mrgreen: .... You coun't have given us a 'Both' or a 'Can't decide... they're both too good' ?????... Monkey :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

I voted Clannad.... if there had been a 'Máire' then I would have voted that... Clannad more for me though since the first song I ever heard was 'The Fairy Queen' and it was by Clannad.... though, it was Moya playing the harp.......

Again.................... Monkey! :mrgreen:

Moyannad! lol!

And just in case any of you are wondering about my vote, it's nonexistent. I can't bring myself to vote for one and not the other...

Moya...definitely Moya, (well with Clannad as a really close second) since I heard her solo-albums first. Because I loved her voice and music so much I decided to check out Clannad :mrgreen:

I'd say Clannad, cause that's where it all started. 8) For me as well... :mrgreen:

I had to vote for Clannad, as others have mentioned above, **it's too hard a question**, but Clannad includes Moya, so at least I still get her voice as well as the boys, lol.
