Favorite song from TH?

Postby irish at heart » Sat Jan 06, 2007 11:58 pm

I'm surprised this wasn't already here hehe..my favorite is definitely the title track, Two Horizons..that gives me the most goosebumps I've ever had listening to any song..this whole album makes me feel that way, actually..I think my second favorite is Harpsong.

My fave is "Harpsong" but I also love "Show Me" (it was the first song which I've heard on the radio - on a German radio station! :D ); this brought me into this album and Moya's music. So because of this "Show me" has a special meaning for me. And "Harpsong" is just a wonderful track. Love the melody.

Definitely Harpsong -one of the saviours of a way-too-electric album...

Harp Song / Two Horizons - those ones are for me like a one song, also I still have in my mind Maire's background story about them.
One of the best ending of the album of all time IMO.

Hard to make a choice between Tara, Two Horizons and Sailing away. But I chose Two Horizons. I just love the harp and violins at the end and moya's voice is amazing

Number 6 again- 'falling', although tara comes in at a close second.

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

I voted Tara, but 'Two Horizons' and 'Change my world' are also up the top. There is something utterly hypnotic about 'Two Horizons', especially when you can't hear anything else at all. As for Tara, it is uplifting, joyful, and the line 'Éist fuaim an chláirseach' is very dear to me 'Listen to the sound of the harp' :wink:

It was me and since they only allowed me to put a few choices before they gave me the error that I had too many choices, I had to put "other" to cover the rest of the songs. :)

I see a lot of others like the title track as well..that track is so beautiful..the ending is my favorite part..but the entire thing is just the greatest song. :)

I like "Mothers of the desert", "Ancient town", "Show me" and "River" best. What is interesting about the album is the combination of real instruments, electronic beats and Moya's voice. It sounds so amazing!

I voted "other" meaning "everything" :D
I always have a hard time with these "what is your favorite..." because usually they all are :D, especially with a masterpiece like Two Horizons. The album is amazing, and each of the songs on it both stand out as an individual song and contribute to the story of the harp.

Just my two cents :D

I voted Harpsong, but Tara and Falling are one of my favourites too. I just think Harpsong is really beautiful and it's really relaxing to listen to, it kinda has a sadness which I like too, but that's because of the violin ^ ^
