Great idea, yourmyenergy!

Of course I voted for my favourite "I believe (deep within)" but there are 3 close seconds: Cé leis, Oró and No easy way.

I don't understand that no one has voted for No easy way yet. It 's a great song. I remember when "Máire" had just been released No easy way was said to be the best song of the album in some reviews. I love the chorus of that song. But, well, I voted for another song as well. Hard to choose when there are so many great songs! :)

I´ve chosen against the wind... Don´t know why, I can always sing it(but I can´t sing, if you get my point, windows and glass start to tingle when I sing) but it´s just a gorgeus song..:D

Hehe I totally agree! I guess my neighbours will be the happiest people on earth when I move out! ;) This song does something to my legs, I just can*t stop them from moving... :D :D :D :D

That's why I never listen to the song when my parents try to sleep :) their room is under mine and I don't think they would like the noise I make when I'm jumping :P

My vote goes to No Easy Way.

A quote from it has been my signature since I joined this forum

We all draw inspiration from different aspects of Moya's music, for me from this album;

"Pathways are taken
Some easy, some hard
Seems to matter less now
As you cherish what's dear to your heart

I hear your whispering
I hear your advice
How can we know what the book of life holds for us all
"When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Against the wind!!! Why? Hear it live and you will understand 8) :lol:

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

This is not easy to choose since it is a great album but my favorite is "No Easy Way". I just love that song. I have been very vocal about how Misty Eyed Adventrues and Perfect Time are my least favorite Moya albums but I did listen to them in my car this week and they are continuing to grow on me on new levels!!
