Enya – “Amid The Falling Snow”.

Hi guys. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Song of the day (7th January) – Enya – “Adeste Fideles”.

I love this Christmas carol in Enya’s version. She makes it sound so brilliant and harmonic. ๐Ÿ™‚

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 – “Oรญche Chiรบin” (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!

Song of the day (30th December – Enya – “Journey Of The Angels”.

OK, time to catch up on some music. ๐Ÿ™‚ There is so much great Christmas music out there, and since it’s still Christmas season, and will be until 2nd February, I will throw in some Christmas songs/carols once in a while, and because I love Enya so much, and she has so much great Christmas or simply winter themed music, this winter I’m going to focus particularly on her music when it comes to my Christmas favourites. Hope you’ll find them enjoyable as well. Also I must say that at times like these, when I feel particularly anxious, and can’t do much about it, I find Enya’s music very helpful and soothing. So here’s the beautiful Christmas song, or maybe carol actually, called “Journey Of The Angels”. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enya – “Christmas Secrets”.

Hi ๐Ÿ™‚

There is one big reason why I always look forward to Christmas. Well maybe not that big, but surely important for me. While lots of commercial Christmas music on the radio just drives me crazy – maybe not by itself but because of how repetitive and actually superficial it is – I love some Christmas songs and carols to pieces. But my biggest Christmas favourite is “Christmas Secrets” by Enya. I never ever listen to this song on other days than Christmas time. I don’t want to get bored with it, though I don’t even know if it’s possible. So every year on Christmas Eve, I treat myself to it, and then a couple more times during the Christmas time. I just love it so much, I love the real Christmas spirit in it, it just resonates so much with me. I hope you will enjoy it too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enya – “Pilgrim”.

Hi people. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is gonna be one of my most favourite songs from Enya now. I mean, I love Enya since ages, well, just a couple of years but it feels like ages, and I did love this song before as almost all of her songs, but now I have the real reason for loving it even more. Nothing too big, but it’s just become close to me because of a short, and overall meaningless coincidence, though my Mum says there are no coincidences…

I was just sitting in my room on Monday, feeling kinda low, not depressed but just low and confused and cynnical and self-loathing and very short on hope, and just overwhelmed by emotions. At this moment, I won’t go into details why or what’s been going on, I’ve just had a lot to think about lately and a bit of a dilemma, with which I don’t know what to do at the moment, if I’ll have some more consistent idea of it all and I’ll feel like it’s something important, which it probably is, I’ll write a post about it later on.

Anyways, I was just sitting and thinking as I said and listening to some music meanwhile. I was browsing through my music and suddenly I stumbled upon this song. And it felt like… like in a way someone spoke to me via Enya and her music, like higher power or something. I felt like, in some a bit weird way, the words of this song resonated with me in this moment, and still do, despite I listened to it so many times before and never cared much about the lyrics. It felt like someone was listening to me, or rather my messy brain, and wanted to sort of soothe me. Enya’s music is always very soothing for me, first of all because she’s one of my music crushes, the very first one, and as a child or teen I wanted her to be my another mummy and secretly thought about her that way hahaha, but also because her music just is soothing and helped me through many hard situations and lots of hard times. I didn’t find the answer in this song of course, or anything like this, but just the feeling that I’mnot alone in this, that even if other people might not be able to help me, there is someone there up high listening to me, and creating such apparently meaningless and maybe even silly, but touching coincidences to show me that He cares and help me find the strength to go further.

The song comes from one of my favourite albums of Enya’s “A Day Without Rain”, and not many songs from this album are particularly popular, so I hope you don’t know it yet, and you will like it too. ๐Ÿ™‚
