Day 14 of the 30 Day Song Challenge is a song no-one would expect you to love. On the whole, I have quite a wide taste in music, with the only real exceptions being rap and R’n’B of which I have very little of in my collection.
I also have very little music from before 1993. This is partly because I wasn’t really into music until I reached 8 or 9 years old. So I’ve chosen this song from the 1980s – “Over The Hills And Far Away” by Gary Moore – as I don’t have much in the way of classic rock in my music library and very little music at all from this time period. Yet, it’s a great song that only sounds slightly dated more than 20 years after it was recorded.
Like others my age, I came to know the cover of this song by Nightwish first, but having listened to both I actually prefer the original. Sadly, Gary Moore passed away a couple of months ago.
