Success At Last!

I guess the third time really is the charm. Recently I wanted to try the fresco somethingorother steak soft taco at Taco Bell. After ordering it twice, getting home and realizing they gave me a chicken somethingorother soft taco instead, I finally went and ordered only the steak taco so as to minimize confusion. And they got it right! It was a tasty taco. I recommend it.

Also, unrelated, I’ve been trying for the past 5 years to find out who this song is by. It doesn’t really have distinguishable lyrics – only something about “love you, I would love you” (which is completely unhelpful in a Google search) and maybe “always I would.” Everyone tried to insist it was by Enya, and I admit it does sound quite a bit like her. But it’s not Enya. I knew it wasn’t. Tonight I searched for “Enya love song NOT Enya” and discovered (like I didn’t already know) that this is one of many songs often miscredited to Enya. Although the article referenced a list of commonly attributed songs, the link was broken.

But believe it or not, someone on YouTube knew what they were talking about! Seriously! I was shocked, too. In a video claiming to be “Enya – Love Song,” someone posted a comment informing us that the song is actually composed by Ronan Hardiman, performed by Leslie Dowdall. Even more shocking: they were totally right! I verified it and everything.

So…after 5 long years, I can now conclusively say that this song is NOT by Enya!

Here’s the YouTube video correctly identifying the song. Sorry, WordPress won’t let me upload audio.

    You have to admit that the vocals sound a lot like Enya. The music is much too “80s pop” to be Enya, though.

    Wow…5 years is a long time. I’m sure it feels good to finally get your questions answered. Now you know. It’s crazy it took so long to find something out like that….but anyways…I have heard of worse things. At least it wasn’t like you were singing the wrong words to a song for years on end to find out that you were wrong. I know I have done that and so has my brother–he always thought the primary song “Give said the little stream” was really “Give said the little STRING.” I know…really…it doesn’t make any sence. Why would the grass grow greener still when a STRING hurried down the hill. Anyways…at least he finally got it right before his mission. Haha Well…that was a lot of rambling. TTFN

Be opinionated! We certainly are.
