eeee...I'll have to think this one over - it's so difficult to pick one as I like a lot of songs but I don't really have a favourite out of those! :?

I chose Pilgrim's Way as I like it just a wee bit more than A Place Among The Stones and Misty-Eyed Adventures...!

Ooh, this is so difficult! There are several unusual but excellent songs on this album. I like especially "Misty Eyed Adventures", "The Mighty One" and "An Fharraige". I voted for "An Fharraige", because I once had it in my head for two days and even tried to sing it - my family called me crazy. :lol:

"A Place Among the Stones" used to be my favorite, but now I've edged over to the celestial "Pligrim's Way", with its meta-ethereal choruses, the bell in the intro and wind harp at the end, and the warm embrace of Moya's vocals.

And while Turlough's fav is "Pilgrim's Way," mine used to be, but has since switched to "The Mighty One." It's so great to hear that song and also great to think of who the song might refer to (I think I know!).

I chose An Fharraige, because it's such a beautiful and evocative song. I first heard it while I lived in Barcelona and I loved to walk or sit by the seaside, so there's a connection. And I love the melody. But it nearly ties with Days of the Dancing, Mighty One and Misty Eyed Adventures.
Actually the song I like least is Eirigh Suas a Stoirin, I like the earlier Clannad version better.

This album could be a topic under "What Makes the Song", because it has so many great tunes on it. A good answer on this poll topic is the order in which each song was a favorite.

Well...since you're asking :D

I used to love Heroes..the massive power of the sisters singing was so mind blowing at the time I couldn't get enough of it, driving my mom mad :lol:
But now...ít became less a fav and I've grown more to The Mighty One, Days of the Dancing, An Fharraige, and some others...see too many!

I think I'll choose An Fharraige...I really really love how that song moves.

I think Big Yellow Taxi is fun too though! and while some here like APATS, It's just a wee bit too slow and too long for me on this album....It's a good/great song, but just seems to go on and on ..... :?

Love,
Phantas

The days of the dancing, great song, I immediatly loved it, when I heard it at first.

Eirigh suas a Stoirin, by the way.. The Oro version is sooo much better! I just had to say it :mrgreen:
