“Storms in Africa” is a song by the Irish singer Enya, featured on her 1988 album Watermark. The song was released as a single in the UK in June 1989 and reached #41. Originally sung in Gaelic on the Watermark album, the song was re-written with English lyrics and re-arranged to a faster tempo for its single release. For a time, a re-issue of the Watermark album included both versions although the original version has been featured on various collections rather than the English mix. The song was included on the soundtrack for the Peter Weir film Green Card (1990) along with “River” and “Watermark”, both also from the same Enya album. For a time, Ansett Airlines, Australia used the song as its theme prior to its collapse in 2001. Read on...
