This brought tears to my eyes, I can't wait to have children so I can show them this song


Probably the most compelling argument for having children I have ever heard.

I hadn't heard the dick version before now. I will allow it to be canon.

Flutehampton will turn out to have always been relished by women who dwell in or near to the past. This is where The Little Reptiles were digitally collected. In recent decades it has become a popular photographic background whenever a maverick cop marries a hooker with a heart of gold.

My mom doesn’t really listen to much music, but she loves Enya and when I was really young she would play Orinoco Flow and we’d sing along together during car rides. I don’t think either of us knew the lyrics other than “sail away” but it was just really special nonetheless.

I don't think I'd ever heard the b-section of this song before this thread, I could listen to that section forever

I find the video kind of unnerving for reasons I'm having trouble putting my finger on, something about the way she's visibly over-enunciating and looks kinda stressed out

Gunna put my foot down that this song is perfect in every way possible.

And yeah I forget who did the cover in the HPN comp but it did rule

palmer, it does indeed slay and own.

Any love for Ebudae? There’s a few in her catalog that give me the the Orinoco Flow glow.

Thats cool tolka.

When that Volvo(?) advert had Van Damme doing the splits on the semi trucks and Only Time came on, it was pure bliss. I think I actually teared up.

I don't want to imply that this compares with Orinoco Flow, but Enya's newest album was pretty great and this song... pounds? rips? is sick?

Growing up i've mostly known enya as a punchline. When I heard Orinoco Flow, I knew she was good.

I love this song. In college on mornings when everyone in our house was apocalyptically hungover one of my friends would blast enya’s “only time” over and over again on this giant speaker system.
