Ah! Great idea to do!
Is @Sprockrooster's 11 out already? Asking for a friend (me).
I gave it 10 points. Just pointing that out.
What a song. I really hadn't heard this in so long but its just glorious. I am happy other songs are still in but at this point anything can happen.
One thing that I forgot to mention is that seven songs from this Top 10 are featured in both Paint The Sky With Stars and Oceans, with six of them being the first six songs on either tracklist. A legendary Best Of if you ask me.
I like/love everything in this top 10. Not something that happens to me in most rates.
Stats and recap coming later. Maybe.
Oooh I have found a cracking song for @Sprockrooster if @Verandi hasn't already got it prepped!

The first song's artwork I tried to make for this rate was Deireadh an Tuath / Dan Y Dŵr! I must have changed it at least five times because I couldn't place the text in a decent way. Struggles! The idea to make some artworks with a central smaller picture came from the art prints found in the limited edition of The Celts CD single. I had to adopt this solution because every picture pre-2000 comes from scans and sometimes the quality was barely enough for a 700x700 image. I then added some graphic elements from A Box of Dreams to make the covers look a bit ancient/precious. Overall I think it's one of her best photoshoots and I hope we'll get some HQ version of those pictures because mama looks rich and unbothered with her boat and her horse. My favourites from this series are probably Aldebaran for the star map and Epona for the minimalism.
The fact that you married a trash opinion with a trash song whew your mind!
Has a rate host ever been banned from popjustice? Asking for a friend.
YAS make me more productive while I take the secret of the Top 3 to my grave!
Yes. Or almost. My mind is blurry. It was something with RJF years ago. The fact that he hosted a Madonna rate (also then) sort of saved him.
I'll always have my own top 3.
I'm not sure i could make it though another. And Enya is the Queen of sporadic releases. Imagine!
My level of stress today at work is: Listening to Watermark, Shepherd Moons, The Memory of Trees, and Amarantine, all back to back.
Only the best!
Turns out that I was referring to number #8 instead of #9. It's only monday and I'm losing it already.
Which song tho.
@Sprockrooster s absolute fav Enya one in the top 10.
