This is one of my all-time favorite groups! 

As much as I love them all, I had to choose "The Same Old Sun", followed by "Old And Wise".  8)

I love APP. I picked Damned if I Do but I also like an intrumental they did called Lucifer. They also did the music to the movie Ladyhawke which was good too.

"Eye In The Sky"

Subject: Re: Alan Parsons Project (any era)

Written By: Doc Brown on 08/08/04 at 3:36 pm

I never knew that was them singing "Don't Answer Me". That song was always so cool! Still, that one comes in second for me behind "Eye In The Sky". Might I add, I, Robot was a fantastic early-electronic rock album. My favorite songs from it are probably "Breakdown" and definitely "Some Other Time".

Your Pal,
Doc

I remember hearing "eye in the sky" on the pop station and liking it alot. But back then I think rock stations played some new wave stuff and songs that now a days would never be called songs by "rock artists". Anyway the rock stations always played the original album version so when I heard "Sirius/Eye In the Sky" I was like whoa!!!! So my vote goes to two tracks (they are two tracks on the cd)
1.Sirius
2.Eye In the Sky

I liked "Don't Answer Me" so much, I bought the Ammonia Avenue LP when it came out, and it sucked. :(

Really?  I don't think I've heard the entire album, but I love "The Same Old Song" (which is on their greatest hits).  :)

I'd have to vote for "Old and Wise".  Such a melancholy song, yet comforting as well.  I can imagine this song being played at the bedside of a dying man, with friends and close relatives nearby.  The man realizes that though he is about to die, his life has meant something, and he will not be forgotten by the living.

"And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes"
Oh when I'm old and wise"
