Enya, our most enigmatic of artists, is unwittingly back in the charts. Her wonderful piece Only Time, written with Nicky and Roma Ryan, has been heard 60 million times on YouTube over Christmas. The video of Jean Claude Van Damme astride the wing mirrors of two supertrucks has been the internet sensation of the year, all to the mellifluous sounds of Donegal's most famous daughter. Fourteen years after it first hit the charts, the song is back in the US Billboard 100.
