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
Ready or not here I come you cant hide
Dude. Its just awesome okay. Nothing but that.
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.
Itt may be samples for the fugees or the other r&b song but the whole humming is " ENYA" so she tookk it frm no one
its not a vampire movie
yes it came from Sleppwalkers , and no, it not about vampires
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
this song also sounds like the song Ready Or Not by The Fugees

There is a song called I don't wanna know by R&B singer Mario Winans, it has this beat.
Iamcarlton, The Fugees SAMPLED it from her. The song came from Enya's first album,

i love enya, but seriously, did she steal this from Fugees or other way around!?!
masterful humming!
Maggie, Boadicea never had any words.
song is awesome
very calming. very inspiring.

was this song mix with lyrics, or did enya remix it?
Creepy, foreboding.. . I envision a bloody battle scene in slow-mo.
this song is just the most beautifull song, it sounds cataclysmic .
strangerfami l i a r
Wow quisse, is the concept of sampling just beyond you?
guissemamado u _ f l p
Should some credit be given to the Fugees who had these arrangements in their song READY OR NOT?
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...

"wow... to think I gave Lauren Hill credit for this all these years, I feel bad poor Enya!" I could not agree more with you
"Ready or not, here I come, you cant hide...Im gonna finnnnnnnd you, and make you want me..."
wow... to think I gave Lauren Hill credit for this all these years, I feel bad poor Enya!
Yeah it is!! Lauren Hill used it in the Fugees "Ready or Not"
Is this sampled by the Fugees in "Ready Or Not"? sure sounds like it
I am a person...
Used as an opening for an episode of Criminal Minds. Truly haunting.
And if I remember correctly, her body lies under what is now St. Pancras' station in London.
I learned a dance in my first year of college to this song. It holds a special place in my heart.
@ onmyown: Boadicea came out way before the Fugees. It was on Enya's first album titled "The Celts" back in '87, which I have. I listened to Enya nonstop as a kid and remember being scandalized hearing that hip-hop song rip off Enya! Worst of all is no one would ever know who she even was.
This is a beautiful song. Boadicea was a Celtic Queen in 60 A.D. who led a war against the Romans after they betrayed her and her people. If you knew the history behind it, it would mean that much more.

I am pretty sure the Fugees copied this song from Enya. It's sick.
this song pops into my head all the time. I'm hooked :)
I love listening to this and clannads songs at work
