"How Can I Keep from Singing?"

"Caribbean Blue" is a song by Irish musician Enya originally released as the second track on her 1991 album Shepherd Moons. "Caribbean Blue" got to Number 13 in the UK Singles Chart.[1] The song follows a waltz time signature, and mentions the Anemoi (Ancient Greek wind gods): Boreas, Afer Ventus (Africus), Eurus, and Zephyrus.

The song plays at the end of the Northern Exposure season 3 episode "The Final Frontier".

The music video for the song features visual imagery based on the paintings of Maxfield Parrish, and was an early appearance for British TV-personality Martine McCutcheon.[2]
