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.
Very true,plus she has a unique voice.I love enya especially "wild child" and "flora's secret".

visita: 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?

No be say dem dey craze. I have full Enya's discography joined with those I've been keeping for long.

I listen to lot of her albums till a friend one day told me the same (demonic)...... I was like you must be running high temperature.

visita: Yeah spot on...my favourite track remains CARRIBEAN BLUE

Caribbean Blue is their best in my opinion, followed by Wild Child.

I laughed when I saw this on the homepage. Enya? Demonic? Sounds like something my aunty would say lol.

Nigerians fear what they do not understand.
Enya sings in an amalgam of languages, she even makes up language on her own. The voice layering makes it even more esoteric.

I am really shocked but impressed that Enya has a huge fan-base here. Enya remains one of my best artistes of all time.Just like someone said in a previous comment, most people consider her songs demonic cos they lack understanding (typical of Nigerians mostly). But i think for others, it evokes "self-pity" in them.
Amongst my favorites are Wild Child, Only time, May it be (makes me cry wheneva i listen to it), Paint the sky with stars (has an effect on me like weed, i swear) and many more.
