lorretta u: lol.that's not all there is to the music.looking at it from a spiritual POV,it has a 'mermaidian' undertone.
Anyway I love her music so I'm not condemning.just stating the obvious.
People just look for something where there's nothing, she sang words that are plain english, people should accept it the way it came instead of trying to attach anything to it.

Congratulations. Welcome to the club of the initiated. You know what you are talking about. Most people credit some of Hans Zimmer's work to Enya and I can see why. It's such an easy mistake to make.

Cori_corde: It's called New Age music, suitable for meditation and thinking.

What about Lisa Gerrard that sings in an unknown language?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enya
"...She does not classify her music as belonging to the New Age genre. When asked what genre she would classify her music as belonging to, she would reply, "Enya""...." "My influences are with Irish music, church music and classical music," she said in a 1997 interview"...

jaymichael: 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 may be cheating on my humble self If I don't like this Post!!......I love Enya's song so so much!....It makes me fEel like "am on free" whenever I listen to her tracks!!.

Phrases like
In the shades of avalon
Far beyond the yellow sea
Feel the power of babylon
Far beneath the coral sea(wetin she dey find beneath sea
In the isles of Ebony
E.t.c
Makes people say her songs are demonic.
Cos most of these words have direct reference to old magic
Isles and avalon e.t.c refer to old magic which used demonic powers.
Won't stop me from loving it though

Eithne Ní Bhraonáin.........Enya, a truly gifted lady! So proud of her heritage!! If you have ever been to Ireland or anywhere around Scotland....deep in the highlands, or the Islands.....far away North, then you will appreciate her even more.

Well, it will interest you that people like King Sunny Ade, Orlando Owoh sometimes say certain things that are very, very beyond a normal Yoruba mind! What i mean by normal Yoruba mind is of course, recent times yoruba people that can not even spea or write in Yoruba smiley For example, Listen to Odu Album track 7 or so (Sunny Ade) or Listen to Orlando Owoh whenever he starts singing in his Ifon/Owoh dialect!!

Cold blooded: 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.

my sentiments exactly,just as enigma ,what about evanescence,and some of their songs like ,'tourniquet' ,'whisper',my heart is broken'.that's esoterism at its core.jst think dats d way of their music and feelings towards it.I also think pple find fascinating and interesting things of d unknown like the occult.dnt think enya's songs r any more occultic than d music of d(we all know their names) so-called hip-hop artists and other related genres.nd if they are,then right nw is d last time I listen to any of hr songs.

also didn't know dat some pple in nigeria listen to such artists and songs.thot we were all baptised in d water of d yelling,unnecessary and repititive lyrics and rythms of artists and their act of copycating and unoriginal choice of music.thank heaven we are not

OMG i loveeeeeeee Enya,and i feel joy from her music. Her music is less demonic than any other music today.
Enya is just unique

Soon they will say Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Madona are demon inspired. Arrant nonsense!

@Aurorae.........Human beings are generally and naturally scared of the unknown wink (Fear of the unknown)
And this simply explains the reason it is always difficult to conquer your fears and move higher and higher! The truth is, with music like Enya's....you have the opportunity to relax and open your mind and open your thinking grin and figure out ways you can solve so many of your problems!
