When I first listened to the album, Tourniquet immediately got stuck in my head. It was my favourite for months. The album I had though was illegally downloaded by a friend (it was not available in BG at that time and, truth be told, I never saw the famous Bulgarian Fallen cassette in the music shops in my city). That friend had downloaded the first thing that matched the song names and I had ended up with an album containing more than one demo version. So after a while, when we finally got internet at home, I found out there were multiple versions of the songs. Listening to the official Fallen version of Haunted for the first time, I fell head over heels for it. It's still my favourite 11 years later.
As a matter of fact, this is the only album where I love 10 out of 11 songs (and don't mind the 11th). Haunted won my heart more with sound than lyrics because other songs definitely have more to offer in the lyrics department.
I don't know how to choose between Imaginary and Whisper. I like Imaginary better as a song, definitely, but the Fallen version of Whisper is so fantastic... It has to be Whisper. Hello and Haunted have both been my favourite at some point, and I'm ashamed at how long it took me to realise that My Last Breath was so great, but Whisper is epic. It's my favourite song for Ev to end a show with, and I think such a huge track is perfect for the last on the album, so it's kinda perfect.
Going Under, has been relateable to me for many many years in different situations and hearing that first riff, whether live or just when I have my playlist on shuffle, just gives me this excited feeling inside.

Whisper will always be my favorite. It's such an epic, adrenaline filled song. Even though I've had songs like Tourniquet and Everybody's Fool on repeat at certain times, they still can't beat Whisper.
BMTL was my first love and although i forgot it for a certain time, o never stopped feel it that way. Generally I think my all time favs from Fallen are My Last Breath, Whisper and Haunted (including the Ben's story about the little girl with a red ball). Live, it's definitely Going Under! It's awesome!

Tossup between Imaginary and Going Under. Going Under was a life changer for me. The first time I heard it, I just didn't see that chorus coming and it captivated me. It's the first Evanescence song I fell in love with and I could probably go so far as saying it's the biggest reason I decided to take up instruments.
That being said, Imaginary resonates with me more and was the first song to really give me that live experience. I just remember the first time seeing Ev they played this song. It all went deadly quiet, the lights dimmed and Amy belted out that intro. I felt like I'd been hit by a train. The spine chill, I could barely hold myself upright, felt my head going and struggled to string together sentences for the next hour. That 20 something second intro absolutely floored me, and I've never experienced anything like that before or since, even when playing live myself.
