For me it is Óro, simply because it shows how much Moya's first child Aisling means to her...

I've gone for Cé leis, because it's so very Moya. I ADORE Against the Wind, but it doesn't fit every occasion like the other does :)

Definitely Óró for me :lol: although Ce Leis comes a close second.

It's Óró - really a wonderful song. I don't understand the words because it's in Irish - but this is not important. The way Moya sings this song tells me its story. :D

for you :wink: text translated:
Oh, my little babe
Fan na luí ag mo thaobh Always stay by my side
Ná scar uaim ___

Oró mo stóirín Oh, my little babe
Thug tú dochas mo stóirín You give me hope, my darling
Go mbeidh mé slán ___

Codladh sámh, codladh sámh Sleep peacefully, sleep peacefully
Codladh sámh a páiste mo chroí... Sleep peacefully, my sweet child...

Oró mo leanbh beag Oh, my little babe
Glac mo chomhairle cinnte Take my sure advice
Mo grá go sámh My peaceful love

Oró mo leanbh beag Oh, my little babe
Agus paidir ó mo chroí And a prayer from my heart
Tá do tsaol romhat For the life in front of you

Codladh sámh, codladh sámh Sleep peacefully, sleep peacefully
Codladh sámh a páiste mo chroí... Sleep peacefully, my sweet child...

"Cé leis" got my vote got my vote, because it is one my favourite Moya songs and one of my favourite songs ever.

But I also like other songs on the album very much like "Óró" and "Against the wind"

Definitely "Cé Leis". Love the song, Moya, the harp, the backing vocals in it all. This song took me by surprise when channel surfing one day. I thought Clannad had released a new album, so I jumped on my bicycle and went into town. Couldn't find a new Clannad album anywhere, until one shop was able to tell me that it might have been the solo album of Moya (which I wasn't aware of). Immediately bought the album and loved it (still do).

Against the wind, especially since I heard that song live. Sometimes I really jump around in my room when I hear this song :lol:

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
