Orinoco flow

"from Tripoli to the Yellow Sea, from Peru to Cebu..."

Quite international: about 16 other locations are referenced on Enya's Orinoco Flow which topped the charts for weeks in the 90s. The mention of Cebu brings me to the summer of 1990.  I was 18, traipsed Cebu and said to myself - one day I'll go look at what's beyond this old city. That is not the only reason I like Sail away (incorrectly thought of as the title).  The arpeggiated harp intrigues me as well. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I do.

Congrats on being this week's spotlight dancer. I love this song! I love Enya's sound. Everything about it is fabulous.

Thanks for stopping by for Music Monday and for the shout out here. Glad you found humor in my post. It's "snot" funny to some people. ;-)
