Hey people! 🙂
I think this is my favourite out of Enya’s more popular songs. I have so many positive feelings and associations related to it. This song was meant to be very daydream-y, and it feels right away, which is why I’ve always used it for some bigger daydreaming, relaxing visualisations and stuff. It has really helped me through so many situations and it is so relaxing and nourishing for the imagination.
As always in Enya’s case, when this song was created, the music came first, and then, when Enya’s lyricist – Roma Ryan – heard it, it made her think of the Caribbean, hence the title. It’s not as popular as Orinoco Flow, Only Time or May It Be, but people who aren’t Enya geeks yet at the same time know some more of her music than just these three songs, will typically remember hearing Caribbean Blue somewhere and able to tell that it’s Enya, or will even be well acquainted with it if they either have a bit of liking for Enya or generally 80’s music that is not necessarily disco. In Europe, it can also be heard in radio stations which play some light pop or a bit older stuff, here in Poland for example an oldies station called Radio Plus plays it regularly. So maybe you have also heard Caribbean Blue before, even if you are not a crazy Enya fan? In any case, if you are an escapist, I reckon you’ll like it even if you haven’t heard it before.
Hi people. 🙂
I’ve been feeling fairly shitty physically the last couple of days, the reason of it is quite enigmatic for me, anyways I didn’t have energy for almost anything, so I’m sorry for neglecting you for another couple of days. I really hope I can start functioning normally again ’cause it’s annoying. OK, so my question for you is such:
What is something you day dream about?
What I day dream about? Everything! Absolutely anything and everything. Even stuff that I wouldn’t necessarily like to happen in real life, but day dreaming about them is cool, even just because you can stop any minute, and switch to some other dream. Daydreaming is one of my absolutely favourite things to do, and to which I’m sort of addicted, as my brain likes to switch into the daydream mode whenever it likes nowadays, often without consulting it thoroughly with me. 😀 And then it’s too big a temptation for me to just give it up. I had one guy call me Dreammie years ago lol. I like that I can have the full control over my day dreams and do whatever I fancy in them. If I don’t have anything better to do or I’m feeling like rubbish and out of energy like I’ve been recently I’ll spend hours just day dreaming. Usually I prefer doing something else at the same time which doesn’t need focusing too much because naturally I tend to lose track of time when I’m daydreaming so it’s a pity to waste so much time if you can do something productive at the same time too, but sometimes I just lie on my bed with the headphones and some music and dream, and it just goes on its own, I don’t have to even think much about what I’d like to dream about, but if I’d rather dream about something different I can do it. That’s why daydreams are better than when you sleep because when you sleep you never know what’s waiting for you on the other side, do you? And you usually can’t be in control. So, no, I don’t think I can just tell you what I day dream about, because it can be simply everything.
So how about you? Any fellow dreamaholics out there? 😀
