The Top Ten
1 Still Got the Blues

Still trying to understand how you create a solo like that. Amazing. Every single note in 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.

2 Parisienne Walkways

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

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. It was so loud and powerful. Amazing song, one of my all-time favorites by a top guitarist who was part of a top band!

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 it's the best.

5 The Loner

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.

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.

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

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.

8 Military Man
9 The Prophet

Come on guys, you never heard this!? Never 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. It's an ultimate masterpiece. It has come from another world...

This has the most extreme emotion anything has. Listen to it. It takes a few minutes.

10 Hurricane

His mad guitar skills showcased.

The Contenders
11 Midnight Blues

Simply stunning. A masterpiece of a true maestro.

12 Walking By Myself
13 Wishing Well
14 After the War
15 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.

Just #2? Please... Listen. It's magnificent.

16 Cold Day In Hell
17 One Day
18 Friday On My Mind
19 Wild Frontier
20 Run for Cover
21 Oh Pretty Woman

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

22 Moving On
23 Picture of the Moon
24 Separate Ways

In my opinion, this is one of the best - top 5 - songs.

25 End of the World

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, then bring on the nukes.
