People Consider Enya's Songs As 'demonic' - Why? by visita(m): 9:02pm On Jun 02, 2013
This afternoon i was listening to enya's playlist on my music player, while reading. Some friends of mine came visiting and it wasn't long after i had ushered them in before one of them recognized the voice from the music blaring from the sound system. 'Is that not enya'? he asked and i replied in the affirmative...I was surprised because the track that was playing as at that time was not a popular one like 'only time' that almost everyone is familiar with. After a while he begged me to change it because it was making him feel uncomfortable and when i asked how a song could make someone feel uncomfortable he said enya's songs are demonic and anyone who listened to it risked his/her soul being trapped by the devil. It wasn't the first time i'll be hearing it but what baffles me more is that most people who think of her song this way can't even explain what makes her song demonic, i guess its because her genre is kinda unique...or what do you guys think?

I love Enya. people assume or presume her songs to be demonic because of the language. she sings in her native old Celtic language and Latin and a bit of English. you know Latin is the language of magic and people associate the old Celtic language with pagan rites and rituals. she terms her music to be of the genre NEW AGE (music for the purpose of inducing relaxation) but she has won more awards as a musician of WORLD MUSIC (music influenced by local cultures) many people I know that presume her music to be kind of demonic are people that enjoyed ROBIN HOOD in their school days but they don't find the programme or the sound track demonic. I do tell them do you know that Enya did that ROBIN HOOD sound track? some of my favourites include STORMS IN AFRICA, AMARANTINE, LONG LONG JOURNEY. EBUDAE, MAY IT BE, FAR AND AWAY.... I can't begin to mention all. I just love Enya.

I used to say that long ago. But I later realized that I did not have a good enough reason for saying her songf were demonic.

Then I did a little bit of research about her and saw my mistake.

Now, she is one of my favorite.

I can fight for Enya, Enigma, Yanni and their likes. I found solace listening to their songs.

Talking about being "demonic" have you got time to watch Enigma's videos or even reflect on d title or her songs like "return to innocence","principles of lust","beyound the invisible" "way to eternity"etc; she uses occultic signs a lot and mimics the Catholic church. I think her songs are more esoteric than Enya's.

ULSHERLAN: People hate what they don't understand.
Dumb people hate what they don't understand.
Wise people research what they don't understand.

Whoever says or believe that enya's songs are demonic is just so dumb to have believed the foolishh person who told him/her.

The 'new age' music genre has a way of inducing a 'nostalgic effect' in some people, and it becomes too sentimental that they begin to hate the sound of it..
some people run away from things that will bring back long and buried memories that they have been trying to avoid. Now that's where the 'hate' all started.

Bilany: Amarantine is one of my best songs of all time
You know when you give your
love away
It opens your heart,
everything is new
And you know time will
always find a way
To let your heart believe it's
true
You know love is everything
you say
A whisper, a word, promises
you give
You feel it in the heartbeat of
the day
You know this is the way love
is
Chorus
Amarantine
Amarantine
Amarantine

Enya Rocks. Nice to know there are people out there who listen to stuff like that. Enya+Cranberries+Evanescence = Top.

Anyone that does not understand the music should try looking up the history/lyrics.

Go Enya.
