This songs seems to be one of Moya's favourites, considering the fact that she recorded this song several times. Comparing these version gives a good impression how varied Moya's music is and that she nevertheless does not change the traditional character of songs too much.

What do you think of this song and which version do you like best?

I voted for the 'Oro' version but it's a real toss up between that and the MEA for me, i love them both- it's suuuuuch a gorgeous song!!

Yes, I know what you mean, Ness! Very difficult to decide but I also chose the Oro version. This is the first version I heard and often you prefer what you heard first. :lol:

I also voted for Oro... I think though that it is the entire feel of that album that I like. There something magical about the whole Oro album... and this song is one of the prizes!!

I voted for Oro, though MEA's version is really close! Both are really nice versions! :D but Oro is just a tiny bit better ;)

It's a very hard choice, MEA's version is good, but the Dúlaman version versus the Oró version is a VERY hard choice, but I've gone for the Clannad harmonies.

I went with the MEA version by default because it's the only one I have heard. :lol:

not having heard (nor owning) the Oro version, I can only compare MEA & Dulaman versions...I have to say I was more in love with the Clannad version than with Moya's solo one...don't know why, maybe it's the fact that the Clannad one is sung slightly faster...although MEA's is just as dreamy!

Love,
Phantas

The Óró version is the best for me .... I don't know the Dulaman version, and the MEA version just doesn't cut the mustard for me (sorry) :)

It reminds me of a relaxing beach holiday I had a couple of years ago when I would just enjoy the sound of the sea mixing with the song being played through my MP3 player and reading a good book...... :lol:

Yeah, UK and Éire only sadly - but that may change once Signature gets a USA release, after all you guys got an official download of the Show Me single.

I like the song, tho not one of my faves :) on the other hand I simply ADORE the harp piece in the Oro version, really.. it gives me goosebumps sometimes! A real art...
