"The Voice" is the second single released from The Moody Blues' 1981 release, "Long Distance Voyager". The song continued the success of previous single "Gemini Dream", becoming a Top 40 hit on the pop charts and topping the Mainstream Rock Chart. It has a mystical-sounding intro and the song has an urgent, jaunty feel to it. It was severely edited for single release.
