"The Voice" is the second single released from The Moody Blues' 1981 album Long Distance Voyager. The song continued the success of previous single "Gemini Dream", becoming a Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at No. 15 in September 1981. The song had previously topped the Billboard Top Tracks chart for four weeks during June-July 1981. The song also reached No. 9 in Canada. It has a mystical-sounding intro and the song has an urgent, jaunty feel to it, akin to most of the Moody Blues' later, more commercial efforts.
