The Soul-Fixing Joy of Listening to Enya While Hungover


“Every single person who drinks regularly has their own hangover remedy,” writes Vogue’s Emma Specter. “The formula that I’ve recently discovered, though, is so much more soul-replenishing than any combination of alcohol or carbs or weed ever could be; the key, my friends, is lying motionless on your couch or bed and listening to Enya.”

“You don’t hear very much about Enya these days,” continues Specter. “But in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Irish recording artist was all the rage. Her keyboard-tracked songs are infused with everything from Celtic influences to New Age beats, and listening to her often gives one the impression of being at a spa. Most of the time, this is not the vibe I’m chasing; when I’m sprawled out on the couch, though, feeling the aftereffects of alcohol draining slowly out of my body and regretting my life choices, all I want in the entire, godforsaken universe is to be at a spa (without the price tag). Enter Enya.”
