Angeles is the second song of Enya presented in this music library. It is the 5th song on Enya’s 3rd album Shepherd Moons released in 1991. The following is paraphrased from Wikipedia:
Although her music could be described as celtic and new-age music Enya never believed her music belonged in the latter genre. The album peaked at 17 on the US Billboard charts and she won a Grammy Award for Best New Age Album. She would pick up four Grammys in her career for this category.
When her previous album Watermark became an unexpected success and touring worldwide she returned to the studio to prepare her next album. She said “It felt like Watermark was a dream. It felt like it hadn’t happened. And in a way it’s nice because you can concentrate only on the music. You can forget about charts, how much you sold. You forget that…When I was composing new melodies I kept thinking “Would this have gone on Watermark? Is it as good?”
Enya picked “Angeles” and “Caribbean Blue” as highlight tracks along with her singing in Irish. I can see why she liked Angeles; it is a very mellow yet seductive piece which can induce in the listener a feeling of floating and lucid abandon.
