Have to agree here. Enya would've been the BEST choice. "May it be" is really a great song. "Gollum's song" is a close second. Annie's just not right for this. Though the lyrics for "Into the west" are very good, the rendition never pulled me like "May it be".

You know, while listening to Annie, I did wonder how it would be if Charlotte Church would sing it Lisa Gerrard is also a good option, I liked her work in GLADIATOR ... would've worked here too.

Annie's version just doesnt give the bittersweet feeling that I think "into the west" should convey.
