what's your favorite solo song that Brian did?
for me i dont have a favorite because i love all of his songs, but at the minute i'd say it were between wilderness and why dont we try again, i love them both, but if i had to chose id say why dont we try again at this moment in time :)

Wilderness.  It's absolute perfection.

For me, it's a cross between Resurrection, Too Much Love Will Kill You, Driven By You, or Star Fleet.

Mine is "Last Horizon". You've got to listen to that melody. Just Beautiful.

Always loved 'Back To The Light' myself. Probably always will.

For me, it's tie between "Last Horizon" and "The Business".

When I first heard "Last Horizon" I thought it was a brilliant, beautiful, soaring piece of music. I still do.

I was going through some personal things the summer when "The Business (Rock On Cozy Mix)" CD single hit the shelves. I didn't even know a new Brian album was on the way (or that Cozy had been killed in a car accident), that's how distracted I was by other things in my life. So, obviously I bought it, got home, played it and the song really hit a cord, with the alternating heavy and soft parts, and the angry, frustrated, desperately optimistic lyrics. It's still a favourite for when I'm feeling down.

hummmmmm .....

from Star Fleet project:
Star Fleet; the song transpires juvenile feelings of joy, fantasy, innocence .... absolutely love it.

from Back To The Light:
Resurrection: the one and only. The epic one.

from another World:
I looove so much this album. China Belle, Wilderness and Another World are my finalists. And the winner is ... ok, I´m with Bob here. Wilderness. Brian never sang so well.

re Dream Of Thee. I´m sorry but I never connected with this song. The first time I listened to the FURIA soundtrack I finished so tired of the main melody throughout the whole album that when Dream Of Thee came I went like "oh, no, not again this tune!". Since then we´ve tried many times, the song and I, but never managed succeeding in our reconciliation attempts.

Thanks!

Don't get me wrong, I don't suffer from depression or anything (not that there would be anything wrong with that if I did) . It was just the perfect song for that moment in my life.
