My response has been influenced by: (1) having 1st attended the concert (at which time the album was purchased), (2) hearing some of choices live, (3) Moya's lead in (quips), and (4) the context of the song within the concert's framework.

Now, having said this, the envelope (puhl--leeze!):

The winner is...

1. "Gone Are the Days" (Moya's quip on being young, "...10 years ago..."), followed closely by...

2. "Merry Go Round"

Thanks for your indulgence.

Merry-Go-Round!

When I get my equipment together for my work "Merry Go Round" is one of the songs I listen to strapping on my gear for the long night ahead.

2nd is "I will Find You" and "Tell Me Know (What You See)" from the King Arthur Sound Track. I listen to these a lot when I get to missing my daughters and wondering if I will ever get to see them again.

I love all the songs in that album but Pill a Run O ( I love songs in Irish it's such a beautiful langugage) and Black night are my favourites.

'Pill a Rún Ó' and 'Hidden Stories' are absolutely beautiful. 'Pill a Rún Ó' live almost had me in tears from the sheer beauty of it! :lol:

Currently my favorite song is "Pill a Run O".
I don't know what it is about it ( I think its the fact that it is in Gaelic :D), but it just moves me deeply.

I love the Gaelic tunes too.

But if you're curious, there's a translation here:

Thank you triona. :wink:
I was already aware of that site, and I think it does a wonderful job of giving me at least some insight as to what this song is about.

But, I'm still a bit confused. Was Father O'Donnel a Catholic priest that became a Protestant minister? Its a song full of religious symbolism (one of the reasons I love it), but I still can't grasp what its about, fully. :)

Wow! Excellent painting, Steph!

I read through the topic and so many defend-able choices can be made from the album!

I chose "No One Talks" because I love the song musically and lyrically. The song immediately inspired me, especially the chorus. The organ gives the song a touch of soul. Lyrically, it has such an encouraging message to lean on during hard times. It just so happens that last night, before reading this topic, I was watching The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. There's a scene in the film in which Frodo and Sam are in Mordor and feeling very much like giving up. Then Sam looks up and sees a tiny bit of blue sky. It restores a bit of their hope and helps them to carry on when all else looks bleak. That's what the song means to me: a tenacious faith that things will get better.

Did she release different versions of "Signature"? On my copy, except for the first three track listings, the rest of the songs are different from what is listed here. :?

As well as the standard album, there was a "tour edition" of Signature, which has a bonus CD of live versions of some of the tracks on it, Theresa. As far as I know, the track list for the main CD should be the same, though.... :?

"Gone Are The Days" will always be my favorite song on Signature. "Tapestry" I also like because it has become the first song Moya sings at a live concert in Pawling. "Many Faces" always reminds me of the drummed intro with Shannon (Fionan Debarra's young keyboardist wife) moving to the rhythm while playing something long and shaky.
At the other end of the scale, "Purple Haze" explodes at the beginning of the album with piano quoting the "Newgrange" chorus, while "Merry Go Round" similarly quotes a less familiar line from "Heroes".
