You are absolutely right. Annie Lennox was not the most perfect choice, and if not Enya, than Charlotte Church would be next choice. Remember "All Love Can Be" from A Beautiful Mind? ---AMAZING---

Yes, the best song was May It Be by Enya and unfortunately she did get the recognition she deserved from it. She should have won Best Original Song for that, and you just watch it will be Annie Lennox who wins it this time around. Emiliana Torrini didn't even get nominated. What the hell was that all about?

It's funny to think to that Enya, besides Howard Shore, is the ONLY other person to compose their own music for the films. I think that her contribution is perhaps the best and her composition style for that film was an amazing venture into the beauty of simplicity.

Oh, how I wish she would do another song for a film. I am a huge fan of her song for Far & Away (Book of Days), yet another type of composition she never utilizes any more, making that song a classic treat. Very powerful.

Best Songs:

1) May It Be composed and performed by Enya
2) Aniron composed and performed by Enya
3) Breath of Life performed by Sheila Chandra
4) Evenstar performed by Isabel Bayrakdarian
5) Gollum's Song performed by Emiliana Torrini
6) Into the West performed by Annie Lennox
7) In Dreams performed Edward Ross

The other's weren't as memorable as those listed above and I truly believe that it should have been Enya or Charlotte singing Into the West, although I am not a huge fan of the instrumentation either. It's really just the lyrics I'm a fan of. If Enya had composed it, it would be a classy composition and not the little gum-popping guitar vehicle it is today.
