Success is a very curious thing...
There is a fun story about a young man who made for fun a little rap tune and broadcasted it on internet...
He is now on the top and being asked questions like "is it a complain about youth situation in suburbs?" (or any of this kind) but he just made it for fun, with no particular message to tell...

I think that Moya has enough experience to know how to manage a sudden big success...

I voted for "I'm not worried, she's done fine", and so I think, she realy did enough.

I don't worry about the fame or success of Moya. So no need to go commercial.
But I think that more people should get the chance to get to know her fantastic voice and fantastic music.

just as I thought =)
I mean she's great, but I like to have this select groupwhich really likes her, not the big crowd ( because that would mean no more cosy concerts, but only those enormous concert halls, and that doesn't fit the sound)

Totally true! When Moya gives a concert it should be in a nice venue, with a good concertroom kind of thing... :P You knw, when the concerts usually are... haha
Don't really think Moya would sound ok in a giant stadium,,, could be interesting, ... or not

I guess the whole mysterious "thing" Moya's music contains would be lost in a stadium.

I think Moya is doing just fine. She is doing what she loves and making a living at it.

Forgot about this thread lol

Well I have to say, my opinion (if it wasn't so already) is that Moya has done more than well for herself. With the aid of the internet and the extent of Moya does - which I know we all appreciate - provides enough exposure to make the usual 'pop chart commericalism' unnecessary.

I can only say well done Moya and all who have worked with her to make such great, original music that appeals to those who would fall upon it quite naturally with enforced advertising.
