Enya – “My! My! Time Flies!”

   Hi all you people! 🙂 

   For today, I want to share with you a really cool and I guess most people would say quite unusual song by Enya, from her 2009 album Amarantine. I say it could be deemed unusual because it doesn’t really sound exactly like what comes to most people’s minds when they think Enya, neither musically nor lyrically. But it’s still absolutely congruent with the rest of the music on the album from which it comes from in my opinion and I like its slightly different feel. This song was born out of a conversation that Enya, Roma Ryan (Enya’s lyricist) and Nicky Ryan (Enya’s producer and manager) had about the late Jimmy Faulkner, one of most renowned Irish guitarists. It inspired Roma to write a song that would be sort of reminiscent of the flow of a conversation, going from one thing to another, to end up on something totally different from what you were talking about in the beginning. And the song is also dedicated to the aforementioned Jimmy Faulkner. There’s also references to a lot of other musicians in it, including Elvis Presley or B.B. King. I really like the bluesy guitar in this song, which is courtesy of another Irish guitarist, Pat Farrell.
