Also, please comment the song you used for your vote. If you want to, list your top 5/10 GG songs if you cant choose 1 favorite.

I'll get crucified for this on here but my favorite GG song is probably I Am a Camera from Civilian. This past Monday I was on the elliptical(listening to Civilian), and when that song came on.. I basically went crazy lol. Got the biggest 'runners high' EVER. 

Edit: I see that album isn't one of the choices. Oh well, have to be a 'write in' vote I guess.

Hmmm...one favorite...that's going to be tough...Here's a list of my faves from each album:

Gentle Giant: Alucard
Acquiring: The Moon is Down
3 Friends: Title track
Octopus: A Cry for Everyone
In a Glass House: tie between the title track & A Reunion
Power: No God's a Man
Free Hand: His Last Voyage
Interview: Design
Missing Piece: For Nobody

Narrowed down to 1...I'll have to go with The Moon is Down so Acquiring get's my vote Wink

Interesting question. My favorite GG song is Give it Back, from Interview. But that’s by no means my fav GG album.

It's not fair. My favorite song is Shadows on the Street, and it's on Civilian :D

But I choose Free Hand, because the other 5 favorite songs are on that album.

This is torture. I’m thinking my fave tune is Giant , from the debut. One of the few, erratic songs in can play on bass !!

Hard to choose, since I love GG's music. I'll have to think hard before I can single out a particular song.

My favorite "Playing the Game" from The Power and the Glory.  My second favorite is "Inside Out" from Civilian.  An album which surprisingly did not make the list.
