Enya - Boadicea

The song Boadicea by Enya was used as the signature music for Stephen King's film, Sleepwalkers in the early 1990s.  The song comes from Enya's first self-titled album released in 1987.  The album was later re-released as The Celts in 1992.  The title of the song is actually the name of the British Iceni tribe's queen who was responsible for leading an uprising against the Roman Empire when the Romans were attempting to occupy the tribe's territory.  Her name is rooted in the Celtic bouda word meaning, "victory." 

The music is soft, light, and eerie, making it ideal music for meditation, deep thought, and reflection.
