I adore Enya. She is a pretty foxy lady. I wonder what she sounds like in the throes of an orgasm.

Orinoco Flow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaHpHcCwMcc) is my favorite. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Peep Show both used this song (and I saw both uses of them in relatively the same time span) and in both contexts it was hilariously twisted.

I can't access the Wii U's Miiverse menu without singing Oronico Flow to it. It's impossible.

Me, and probably most people.

Check the poll Alix, that isn't an option!

I liked Enya so much when I was in high school. I think the only thing I have by her niw is May It Be, and that's because LOTR

I sort of always thought Enya existed to provide the BGM for that one scene in that one movie.

I was way into New Age in elementary school and junior high (I was the coolest kid). I still have a soft spot in my heart for Enya.

My mom used to play Shepherd Moons and The Memory of Trees on cassette a lot when I was in grade school or middle school, so those albums carry pleasant associations with weekend mornings for me.

I like the first three albums.

The self-titled album is a lot more Tangerine Dreamy than the others, due to actually being a soundtrack to some movie nobody's ever seen. It's not super-interesting but it has some more variety.

Watermark is my favorite. I especially love the emptiness of Exile, Evening Falls, and On Your Shore. It's beyond calm, an intense quietness. I first heard Enya when these songs were in the movie L.A. Story and they're still the best.

Shepherd Moons is where Enya finds her formula. It's pretty good but you don't really need a whole bunch more albums like it.
