    Any other Enya fans! Not ashamed to admit that I'm a huge fan of her music and since she has a new hits compilation out, I thought it would be cool to start a thread here in the Celtic forum and see who else enjoys her music.

    Post favorite songs or videos...I'll go way back for the first entry!

    I have this Enya CD:

    I am not a huge Enya fan, but I have enjoyed this CD. She has a beautiful voice and the music works with such harmony to her vocals. I have to be in a special mood to listen to her music.

    I have 5 of her CD's, they are definitely for a particular "Mood" for me, but when I play them on the big system the combination of her vocals and the musical accompaniment are spectacular, better turn the subwoofer down on your systems, unless you want to damage it.;)

    Enchanting and ethereal are two of the words I use to describe Enya's music.

    My art teacher in High School got me to listen to them. I have the best of collection and it has everything I need on it. It is beautiful music but not something I've ever listened to on constant rotation. Like LG said I have to be in a particular mood for it.

    Well stated, Hepcat!

    My Daughter, whom was only 11 years old at the time, wanted "A Day Without Rain". I never persued anymore CD's, but I do admit to liking her music. I dont have a subwoofer to worry with, but the surround sure does make her sound enchanting!

    Thanks to the New Age station that bought L.A.'s #1 rock station KMET in 1987, I first heard of Enya when they began playing "Orinoco Flow". I just fell in love with that song, and I eventually bought her Watermark and Shepherd Moons cds. After really liking those (to my surprise), I ventured out and bought The Memory of Trees and her debut cd The Celts which were also two very good cds. And of course I also bought A Day Without Rain when that came out in 2001. Such great song composition, and of course her beautiful voice. Great music to listen to during a holiday dinner party with a fire going in the fireplace.

    Exactly what I was thinking KMET, her music is excellent to unwind to after a hard day on the job site as well.;)
