The Top Ten

1 Still Got the Blues Still Got the Blues Cover Art

Still trying to understand how you create a solo like that. Amazing. Every single note at the right place at the right time. A real piece of art.

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.

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.

The pinnacle of blues ballads...Mr Moore soars both in volume also and axe performance. A great exhibition of his skills.

2 Parisienne Walkways Parisienne Walkways Cover Art

Gary Moore had two voices. One came from his vocal chords, the other from his guitar.

One of the best songs ever

Greatest song ever

The best song ever

3 Out in the Fields Out in the Fields Cover Art

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!

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

4 Over the Hills and Far Away Over the Hills and Far Away Cover Art

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 it's the best

Great song. Should be higher.

5 The Loner The Loner Cover Art

The Loner should easily be in the top 2 after Parisienne Walkways. Gary told us all a story without using a single line of lyrics. That's Gary for you! Legend.

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

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

This song is the end of every thing, its die and its life... And you will crazy like me...

6 Empty Rooms Empty Rooms Cover Art

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.

Guys,
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)

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

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

7 Story of the Blues Story of the Blues Cover Art

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.

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 slow blues! Heart and feeling! R.I.P Gary...

It must be #1 - A MASTERPIECE

10 The Prophet The Prophet Cover Art

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...

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

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

The Contenders

12 After the War After the War Cover Art

Empty Rooms is the best song of all times amaizing solo and lyrics a great song

Empty Rooms is the best song of all times

The best song of Gary it's not fear

13 The Messiah Will Come Again

This is the best Moore song in my opinion. You can just hear all the emotion being exerted into his playing

It deserves a higher place than this, at least number 2

This is a really good song, the first one of Gary's that I heard and in my opinion the best.

The guitar sound with few effect but plenty of emotion

20 Separate Ways Separate Ways Cover Art

On my opinion is one of the best --top5- songs.

21 End of the World End of the World Cover Art

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.

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

22 Still In Love With You Still In Love With You Cover Art

Should be much higher up!
