Storms in Africa - Enya

On Enya's album 'Watermark, 'Storms in Africa' was an instrumental track with vocals that didn't express any lyric. It is included on this single as part 1 on the B-side. The track was re-recorded and retitled 'Storms in Africa II'. This new version did include a lyric, although it was in typical Enya style: floating, vague and slightly windy.

The single was released in the UK in June 1989 and reached number 41 in the singles chart. The song was used as part of the soundtrack for the Peter Weir film 'Green card' (1990) along with the album tracks 'River' and 'Watermark'.

My collection: 7" single no. 947
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, July 21, 1989
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Storms in Africa II' / 'Storms in Africa I'
