Believing what you Want to Believe.

I’ve mentioned before on this blog that there are several YouTube uploads of Karl Jenkins’s iconic piece Adiemus that are wrongly credited to Enya. They all include at least one comment, usually several, to the effect that the composer is Jenkins and the singer Miriam Stockley. Enya has absolutely nothing to do with this song.

Last night I found the complete version with the extra few bars at the beginning, and it’s clearly flagged at the top with a statement pointing out that it isn’t from Enya, but Karl Jenkins. There’s also a comment to the same effect. And then there’s another comment which says:

‘I don’t give a fuck what anyone’s shity (sic) opinion is, this is clearly Enya!’

What hope is there that reason might prevail in a world that contains such people?
