Miss Clare Remembers
|Touch Travel version||1:59||Instrumental||1984|
"Miss Clare Remembers" is the title of a "Miss Read" book. The idyllic descriptions of country and village life and the simple portraits of those who peopled such settings had appealed to Enya. In composing this music she recaptures the naivety and innocence of an age and place far removed from the whirl and pressure of a sophisticated society and suggests that we need to dip into that world from time to time.

Quotes about the song
Enya: “With multi-vocals you’ve got to do the 90 or 100 vocals — you cannot do just five or six and know if it’s going to be right. After we had sung a hundred or so vocals for ‘Miss Clare Remembers,’ we realized vocals didn’t suit it, so we just wiped them right out.”
