I dislike Celtic Women (strongly, STRONGLY dislike Celtic Women). You want to know why? Because the copy wonderful amazing songs, and then destroy it with their too-high voices! I love Enya and Moya Brennan's music (Clannad) because they are awesome, and so wonderfully peaceful and uplifting, and mysterious. I LOVE their music! But then Celtic Women come along and copy it and try to make it their own. Examples?
Celtic Women's Newgrange
And the winner is Clannad!
Enya- Orinoco Flow (the song that introduced her to worldwide fame! The song she originally sung! HER SONG)
Celtic Woman- Orinoco Flow (copy cats! Even though other people copied this, I still don't like Celtic Woman)
Celtic Women- Come All Ye Faithful
Enya- Adeste Fidelis
Clannad: Siúil A Rún
Celtic Woman: Siúil A Rún
Enya- Silent Night (Oiche Chiun)
Celtic Woman- Silent Night
Enya sings in gaelic and latin, whereas "Celtic" woman sing in English. If you were truly Celtic, wouldn't you sing in your home language? I know that most of these songs are traditional Celtic songs, but I just want to say I don't like Celtic Woman. Their voices are too high, they all sound the same. Enya is all-around, she can sing low, deep, high, super high, and everything! She uses her voice as an "instrument" (interview with enya) and she IS her own choir, she plays all the instrumentals and vocals whereas Celtic Woman, or should I say, Celtic Women, need each other (most of the time) and they need a band/orchestra to play with them. Not independent ENYA!
Anyway, I've loved Enya ever since I was little, she inspired me to become who I am today. Why do you like/dislike Enya? Or Clannad...or Celtic Woman!
I HAVE MOVED!
