Monumental Soundbyte - 91

Enigma - Return To Innocence
Weird song that i absolutely love.
It was in the days when the predominant cable company in Lagos was Disc Communications and channels included MTV Europe and BOP TV (which had the soap opera Santa Barbara with Cruz Castille...anyway i digress).
MTV Europe introduced me to this video which was weird.... i remember a white stallion and everything going backwards....fascinating.
This song was released in 1994 and did very well on international charts.
This song is fascinating,.,...there are vocals supplied by Angel X but there is also like an aboriginal chant which you hear but it apparently was used without permission. There was an ensuing lawsuit....
During the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, the song was used which pushed into mainstream consiousness.
Its a fabulous and creative song...Enjoy!
