I like the "Óró"-version a little bit better than the "Dúlamán"-version, but they are both very nice. The MEA-version sounds a bit unusual to me, I have to get used to it, I guess.

I don't own Oro, unfortunately, so I can only compare Dulaman and MEA and it's certainly the version on Dulaman that gets my vote. There's something about the MEA version that makes it my least favourite on the CD, however, I really like the Dulaman one. I'll have to listen to both of them again to tell you what it is exactly that makes me feel that way,..

I would reccomend repeated listening to cure that! It certainly worked on me, and now i luuuuuuurve that song. It's a real grower.

I also dont' have the version from "Oro" but I think that Dulaman version comparing to MEA is faster and that suits the melody well.
Anyway it's not one of my favourite songs (contrary to Moya :roll: ) , my opinion is that Moya sang much more beautiful songs.
