General Comment She is going somewhere; a journey obviously, full of the next morning and the way the sun shines on the ocean, because in my mind, she is going on a voyage of sorts. General Comment I agree with Myoria and boomlily55, and I also have a little different spin on this song.
Some time ago perhaps 6 - 7 years ago I heard second hand that some christian clergymen believe that Enya's work is an introduction to Buddhism.
I have an informational book titled "Essential Buddhism" and learned that one of the most important parts of Buddhism is meditation, of "being in the moment". This would also match with the line: One day, one night, one moment In some forms of meditation, the purpose is to attain Nirvana If you go out on a limb this could be the lines My dreams could be tomorrow as well as I'll find my day maybe Far and Away Other similarities to Buddhism: Enya's music can be said to be overall very peaceful, her lyrics are removed from what is commonplace.
I saw a video in which Enya was playing on the piano for this song, and she was dressed in white and there were flowers scattered all around. Maybe a coincidence or maybe not, but some if not all buddhists have flowers present in the place where they meditate.
If I am wrong in my remarks, I would appreciate if someone corrected me, because I too would like to learn something new. General Comment I love this song!
It's so pretty! They played this music in the background of the theatrical trailer for the movie Tuck Everlasting. That's when I first heard it: General Comment I agree with all of you guys.
I say all of the above. You never get the opportunity to sit down and say, 'Wow.
Enya, who recorded two soundtracks The Frog Prince and The Celts prior to Watermark, comes across as a serious, private person - the Jodie Foster of the music world. She doesn't enjoy discussing her work prior to her solo career, when she sang with older members of her family in the Celtic pop band, Clannad.
There is no big problem as far as a star trip.
I find that people will walk toward me and say, 'Thank you for the album. My favorite track is It's really nice because I like to hear this. Enya admits that the unexpected commercial success of Watermark complicated the process when she and Roma began Shepherd Moons.
She record multiple harmonies - as many as parts on one song, and then they later select how many to use. When I've written the melody I know exactly what the melody is looking for, but achieving that takes a while. I'm looking for something that is saying something very strongly to me, emotionally. I feel if this happens, then it's strong enough to work on. But this takes time.
I record a lot of ideas and listen back and eventually I know that a melody will evolve from all this work. But sometimes it's so difficult to know. And what's it going to be like? Enya says they've never had a conflict about those words.
The original version, included on the album Shepherd Moons , was sung in Irish Gaelic. The subsequent single version was bilingual, with new English lyrics; this version was recorded for Ron Howard 's film Far and Away , and scenes from the film feature in the video.
The bilingual English-Irish version 2: It was also used as a temp track during the editing of James Cameron 's film Titanic , for the scene eventually accompanied by the musical cue called "Take Her To Sea, Mr.
Murdoch" on the finished soundtrack by James Horner. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Enya Official Fan Website. Retrieved Titanic James Horner ". Hung Medien.
