This song instantly brings Stephen King's Sleepwalkers to mind. Typical King mediocre book-to-movi e rendition, but this song at the end REALLY elevated it to cool, cult creepy fame. :) Love this song!

Hands down the best Enya song, (quite possibly best ANY song), ever. I've listened to it hundreds of times and not once have I made it through without goosebumps! :-P

From the booklet of 'The Celts' album: "Boadicea, or Boudicca, meaning Victorious, was Queen of the Iceni tribe of East Anglia. She led a rebellion in AD 60 against the Romans, destroying the cities of Colchester, St. Albans and capturing London. She was eventually defeated by the Romans and, rather than be humiliated by them, she poisoned herself."

It should be haunting and sinister. It was meant to be a musical backdrop to the historical figure of Boadicea/Bou d i c a during the 80s TV documentary The Celts. It's striking because for me it brings to mind austerity and a tough land, where a few achieved greatness over the centuries, like Boadicea, who stood strong against the oppression of the Romans. shawnacarrol l 3 knows what's going on. It gives life to a people who could be your family (ancestors).

No, this song came out as part of her debut album in the early 80s. The Fugees sampled from her.

Don't know how Enya and Windham Hill have anything in common…
Hauntingly beautiful song. Creepy, and dreamy all wrapped together.

Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide! Gonna find you, and take it slowly!

Complicated song - the key and tonal quality give it a sinister flavor. I've been an Enya fan forever so of course I had this on her CD shortly after it was released. Then I heard the song played as the background music for the opening scene of a Criminal Minds tv episode. The music and scene fused perfectly. The song is haunting and the scene was terrifying. Merged together they created the stuff of nightmares!

This song was also in the credits of some sci-fi Vampire movie. Sleepwalkers I think? I've listened to Enya for many a year, and always loved this song. I got a friend to listen to it a few months before that hip-hop song used it, he was thankful to know where it came from.

Mayah, the Fugees used this song in the background, that's why. :)

such a haunting undertone... . a dreamlike quality of looking for somthing far away

Should some credit be given to the Fugees who had these arrangements in their song READY OR NOT?
Report as inappropriate
Mario Wynans "I don't want to know" also uses the same background.. . I hope Enya gets a little monetary incentive for letting other artists use her material...

And if I remember correctly, her body lies under what is now St. Pancras' station in London.
