Way too difficult to choose one only!  It does depend on your mood I think.  I'd have to agree with others and pick a track from several albums:-

Asia - Wildest Dreams
Alpha - Don't Cry
Astra - Rock and Roll Dream
Phoenix - a toss-up between Parallel Worlds/Vortex/Deya or Orchard of Mines
I also love Ride Easy

Impossible to choose really.  Every Asia track evokes different emotions when you really sit down and listen to it;  Johan has a fantastic way with words.

Agreed. It is very hard to pick a favorite song from Asia. Even outside of Asia, I don't think Mr. Wetton and Mr. Downes have ever written a song I didn't like!

Very difficult...I have to choose between 'Only Time Will Tell' and 'Go'.
É love them equally.
'Heroine' is my favourite off 'Phoenix'. Simply outstanding - it just brings tears in my eyes - one of Johan's best performances - up there in the same high level with 'The  Smile has Left Your Eyes'.

Open your eyes and see the world that stands in front of you

Ride Easy- languished as a b-side for too long.

It would be much easier to simply quote my least favorite.
As so many of these songs have different ties to all of our lives growing up with many of them....
probably "lying to yourself"

May yer stalagmites always reach higher!!

Asia - Sole Survivor all the way! (by the way, I love this in the Key of D...that way I can hit the high note as I sing along!)
Alpha - Never in a Million Years, Eye to Eye, Midnight Sun, Open Your Eyes
Astra - Hard on Me, Too Late, Suspicion
Then and Now - Days Like These
Phoenix - Never Again, Extraordinary Life, Heroine, and (please, oh please for the upcoming tour) Nothing's Forever that song has a killer opening with the Asia trademarks of John's opening vocals, Geoff's trumpet-sound on the keys; Carl's timpani, and Steve's slide guitar. My kids all love NF.

I always struggle with listening to "Rock and Roll Dreams"
As the Sheriff's diminished feelings come accross soo deep that us loyalist's shed a tear for Capt. Howe at its playing.....
as our ASIA Dreams had also diminished....
Thanks for undoing all that had been done!!

May yer stalagmites always reach higher!!
