Enya (born Eithne Ní Bhraonáin, Irish pronunciation: [ˈɛnʲə ˈpˠad̪ˠɾˠiːnʲ nʲiː ˈvˠɾˠiːn̪ˠaːnʲ], anglicized as Enya Brennan, 17 May 1961) is an Irish singer, instrumentalist and songwriter. Enya is an approximate transliteration of how Eithne is pronounced in the Donegal dialect of the Irish language, her native tongue. (from Wiki)
Only take the time
From the helter skelter
Every day you find
Everything’s in kilter
You don’t need a reason
Let the day go on and on
I first heard her sing May it Be , on LOTR’s Fellowship of the Ring. Enjoy!
Love her stuff!
Same here, Bailey Roe! I love that she sings in English, Irish, Latin, and….Loxian (a completely synthetic language in Amarantine!).
I didn’t know, Simon Skiles , will look out for it.
Ah Rajini Rao have been listening to Enya for years. Not to mention SInead O’Connor (when she got on national TV here with her shaved head and dissed the pope – shite, ah sure. I was gobsmacked and didn’t I just go out and buy all her music? She is grand, she is; but I had to buy a fookin’ early tape-playing walkman. Ah, sure, it weighed a ton but twas worth it.)
To anyone who is Irish as opposed to 3rd generation Irish American, I apologize all over myself. But you need to know my genetics are 100% Irish and there are Fenians in my line.
Loxian? Too cool. Sounds like a cross between Dr. Seuss and cured salmon.
Enya sings in a language called Lox,
An ancient tongue born of Tolkien.
In videos portrayed as a phantasmal fox,
she sways to the orchestral motion.
In elvish words twisted and sounding of magic,
Enya chants to the spirits of hobbit dreams.
Her Loxian language draws Saurian circles,
around fables, folklore and fantasies.
very nice ??
Nice? No. Silly perhaps. I failed to include a phrase about salted, sugared and dill bedded salmon. But I’ll leave it alone for now.
Rajini! Now I know what to send you! I have followed Enya since “Orinoco Flow”.
Anony Mole , a poet, wit, Seussian and Tolkien fan? I can plus that!
