Music video by Sinéad O'Connor performing Troy.

"Troy" is a song written and recorded by Sinéad O'Connor, the first single from her 1987 debut album, The Lion and the Cobra. In 2002, a dance version of the song released as "Troy (The Phoenix from the Flame)" becoming a top 10 hit on several international dance charts including the US.

The song uses the story of the ancient city of Troy as a metaphor. The lyric "Being what you are, there is no other Troy for you to burn" is a reference to the poem "No Second Troy" by William Butler Yeats ("Why, what could she have done being what she is?/Was there another Troy for her to burn?").

The video featured O'Connor, completely bald and covered with gold and silver body paint, singing to a background of moving images including flames. The video's striking imagery of this angry, bald young woman was for many their first and most striking introduction to O'Connor.
