Song Lyric Sunday – 4 October 2020 – User choice

Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday gives us the chance to share familiar, and sometimes not so familiar, songs. Jim has given us a free choice this week rather than a choice of words to be included in the title or lyrics. I think that a lot of regular contributors will, like me, be thrown by having to make an extra decision. But decide I must (and that is the first decision – to start a sentence with ‘But’. My primary school teacher, Mrs Slaney, would be horrified!

If you fancy sharing one of your favourite songs you can find out how to participate, and also listen to all the great entries, here.

I tend to ‘collect’ songs in a file that could possibly be used, at some later date, in SLS. Sometimes, I totally miss a perfect match and think later what a complete imbecile I have been. Nothing new there then!

My choice, this week, is an artist that I admire tremendously. I wish that I could write poetry such as she does.

No other explanation is needed.

The few Lyrics that are required are on the video.

Play it seven times and consume it, or let it consume you.

and if you get carried away with Enya…..try this

“So I could find my way”

I could quite happily spend all day listening to Enya.  There is something ethereal about her songs.  I do so hope that you can experience just a small portion of what I do.

  1. I actually had never listened to her. Her name is a very common clued word in crossword puzzles, the only place I had run across here. Thanks for giving me a chance to hear what she sounds like.

  2. Oh, Peter, this is wonderful! Enya is one of my fav singers/songwriters! Great choices from her songs!!! 🙂 When I first heard her, she quickly became a part of what I call “The Soundtrack To My Life”. 🙂

      1. HA! I laughed at what you said about Mrs. Slaney! 😀
        Every time I write anything I think of my English teacher Mrs. Huizinga. She used to say, “You’re a pretty good writer, but you are verbose.” I was verbose-to-the-max then, and I’m still verbose! Ha! 😉

      2. This brings joy-tears to my eyes, Peter! I’m so glad when I hear that people had teachers who influenced them positively! 🙂

        I had several who were life-changers for me. 🙂

        For eons, I taught Kindergarten (3-6 year olds). And I taught adults in night school classes on parenting, relationships, etc.
        AND I taught/worked in summer camps with all ages of kids… 3 – 18 years old. 🙂
        I LOVED being a teacher!!! 🙂
        I tried to be that good teacher who would help them through life. 🙂

  3. I do like Enya.

    At one stage Primary schools were encouraged to play music at a low volume to calm the children and encourage them to settle down to working after playtime and first thing in the morning. My school had separate buildings and for years one and two we often chose Enya, I still have a couple of CDs… somewhere!
