Beautiful song, musically and lyrically

Best of all their songs.

This is the most beautiful song from Alan Parsons Project.

This maybe a song I have at my funeral. I should have used it at my son's funeral. Beautiful song!

One of the best written songs EVER...

This song is so calming and perfect. A timeless classic! - Userguy44

Strange top 10 this song is a classic. Days are numbers and turn of a friendly card are among the songs that are conspicuously missing

Of course this is the number 1

14 Damned If I Do

This is perhaps the most powerful hard driving orchestral rock song APP ever did! Such intense emotion!

Third best song, behind Eye In The Sky and Games People Play. Don’t Answer Me should be higher.

Infectious tune. Great strings.

Best Parson song ever

UListen to Sample
26 La Sagrada Familia

This may not be my absolute favorite Parsons song but I'm aghast that it wasn't even on the list! What an epic and brilliant song this is! It's at least the best song from their last four albums, "Ammonia Avenue" through "Gaudi! "

31 You Don't Believe

Has anybody heard this song? Arguably one of their top 5.

Probably the most underrated APP song. It worth listening to the best in-song bass change ever, over and over again.
