I've spent 7 years trying to find this music from my 5th grade class. My teacher used to always play this woman's music and nothing else could ever compare to how relaxing it is. I could never find it because I couldn't remember the words, only the melody. This is a monumental moment for me. Thank you.

Imagine spending 7 years not knowing the majesty that is Enya's Orinoco Flow

This is a good moment. I listened to only Jolene by Dolly Parton for like 3 weeks and I would not recommend that. But non-stop Orinoco Flow is actually Right and Good.

Honestly this is heartwarming as it is inexplicable. I mean, Enya should bring the rangers a bit of calm. Some chill. Some flow.

Orinoco Flow.

love this original and creative genius who I learned about while I was a student at the University of guelph in the mid 90's in a psychology course whereby I had to do a presentation with this song in it. I want to listen to recent stuff.... brilliant!


I have never thought to myself "I want to listen to a psychology class presentation" but wonders do not cease.

enya is good as hell

last night i took a bus very late from a bar/restaurant in crown heights down bedford to my new neighborhood of ditmas park. it was a 30-block ride and i was inexplicably the only human being on it for the entire 30 blocks. since we made no stops to pick up or drop anyone off we quickly caught up to another bus and as it pulled out of a station in front of us i was afforded a view of that bus's interior which revealed to me that there was only one person on that bus as well. when i reached my stop i got off and watched the now-empty bus roll off into the night, walked the ten minutes home--i paused briefly at the newly refurbished king's theater to see that brand new and nada surf will be playing it home--and put on some music.

i kid you not, it was enya.
