Enya – “Trains And Winter Rains”.

Here’s another Enya’s sort of winter themed song I have for you this month. I think it’s one of my most favourite wintry but non Christmassy songs by her for some reason. 🙂

Julie Fowlis – “Danns’ a Luideagan Odhar” (A Dun-coloured Dance).

Hi people. 🙂

Here’s another song from Julie Fowlis, also from her latest album, but this time in Scottish Gaelic.

 

Julie Fowlis – “Go Your Way”.

Hi! 🙂

Today I bring you a song from one of my most most favourite Scottish folk singers, and one of the most successful ones – Julie Fowlis. – Julie Fowlis is the one who sung the song “Touch The Sky” to the Disney movie “Brave”, I love that movie and my ZOfijka does too, and like that song as well, and it seems that it is what made Julie so popular. I knew her though already a couple years before I heard about “Brave”, when I started being interested with Celtic music. It was via her music that I had the first contact with Scottish language (Scottish Gaelic) and her music is what first made me love this language. I also considered it funny though, because it sounded so exotic, and i can remember listening to Julie’s music for hours, wondering what her lyrics are about. You can also “hear” quite weird things in her songs if you speak Polish, so it was quite amusing. But first and foremost, I considered both her music, and Scottish language, in which she primarily sings, stunningly beautiful.

I willl probably show you more of her music later on, but today I’m going to show you her song in ENglish, from her latest album that came out last year, in October, I guess. The song is called “Go Your Way” and was written by another folk singer whom I like, though not as very very much as julie – Anne Briggs from England. – I think it’s wonderful.

Enya – “Amid The Falling Snow”.

Hi guys. 🙂

I’ve shared with you quite a couple Christmas carols by Enya so far. Today, I’m also sharing a song by Enya, though this one doesn’t have much to do with Christmas, but it’s still very wintry and cosy, and I love it because of it. 🙂

Song of the day (5th January) – Enya – “The Spirit Of Christmas Past”.

We still have the Christmas tree in our living room and will be taking it down on Friday, and as you already know Christmas season in Poland can theoretically last until the 2nd February. While such very long celebrations would certainly drive me crazy, I am really happy it’s so long because I can relish Enya’s Christmas music, which I only save it for this time of year to make it more pleasurable. So here’s another Enya’s Christmas themed song, and it is just so beautiful. I simply love it!

Song of the day (31st December) – Enya – “Oíche Chiúin” (Silent Night).

I have a niggling feeling that despite my love for Irish language there hasn’t been much Irish language music that I posted here actually. So here’s the Irish version of “Silent Night” in ENya’s exquisite performance. I just love it so, so much!
