That powerful and beautiful guitar solo hits me in the pit of my stomach and in the heart of my heart so much, It almost makes me cry. - Britgirl

One of the all-time great guitar solos. Blistering. - truckturner

This gives me goosebumps all the time. Fantastic song! - Userguy44

This song has rendered me helpless for years. As others have said previously this is a true masterpiece and will never date. Just love it.

3 Out in the Fields

This needs to be number one, I've seen it played live (not by Thin Lizzy, I'm only 16) by Limehouse Lizzy, so loud and powerful. Amazing song, one of my all time favorite by a top guitarist who was part of a top band! - DeadAsian


Defintely my favorite of his to listen to. Sounds great.

4 Over the Hills and Far Away

Come on! Is this a nightmare!? This is the coolest gary moore song ever! The keyboard is also very great with the nice riff!

Whatever the list says.. , for me its the best

Great song. Should be higher.

5 The Loner

His guitar says it all. No need for vocals or mindless shredding. Nobody can play like Gary did and here is the proof.

He can whip the Guitar... He Can Sing Via his Guitar.. No Need To Have Vocal In This song.. Just Just Awesome.. Just Feel The Solo.

The loner is an awesome instrumental that starts with a riff then goes onto a solo and you would have to listen to it to fully appreciate it, I cannot possibly explain the song in its entirety

A true masterpiece of guitar! Simplicity at its best! This song is proof that a guitar can sing.

6 Empty Rooms

Anyone who is human knows this song. Empty rooms are like the heart removed from the body. Loving someone and they go... No better explanation of human emotion.

An amazing song. No words, touches the heart. A great masterpiece

Never in my life have I felt the amount of emotion that this song made me feel...masterpiece

this is the best and wonderful song I have ever heard.
now it is more that 10 years I am listening this song every day in my car and my home.
very strong voice, very beautiful rhythm, and very professional guitar playing...
(Behboud from Tehran/Iran)

7 Story of the Blues

In my humble opinion the best blues guitarist ever this track is one I keep coming back to, possibly one of if not his best.

A great song by one of the finest musicians ever. He nailed several music genres that are quite far from each other: from blues and jazz to heavy metal and hard rock. R.I.P. Gary. - Metal_Treasure

8 Hurricane

His mad guitar skills showcased. - Metal_Treasure

9 The Prophet

Come on guys you never heard this!? Never have been stoned!? And listening to this great solo!? I can't live one day without this magnificent Solo! Please vote it up!

I can't even say something about this, it makes me speechless, its an ultimate masterpiece, it has came from another world...

I love this song and I think it deserves to be in top3 at least.

The best Gary Moore song in my opinion, you can feel the pain coming from the guitar

17 End of the World

That intro solo is smoking... If this is the sound of the apocalypse, than bring on the nukes. - TheStargazer

For me, this is a metal song (1982). Odd enough, but part of Gary Moore was always metal, since his early days in Thin Lizzy. - Metal_Treasure

23 I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know

Can anyone express the emotion of loving someone so much like Gary Moore does? I mean, we've all loved or love someone so much, they are like the blood flowing through our veins. And yet, no matter how much they do or don't know that, this song goes out to everyone who knows that their loved one will never know the extent that they are loved to. Brilliant.
