Sigur Rós – Hoppípolla

June 15, 2008

It’s rare to find music that you’ll listen to today, tomorrow, and the rest of your life. My ipod is filled with music from past phases and passing trends, but I always fall back to the enduring tunes. One song that mesmerized me on first listen, and continues to, is Hoppípolla by Sigur Rós. It’s sung in ghostly Icelandic and Hopelandic (language made up by Sigur Rós), and has been featured on various commercials and soundtracks.

The reason I love this song, and will continue to, is because of the imagery it depicts. Every time I listen, I picture something different like the blooming of flowers or the rise and fall of the sun. I found a great commercial by the BBC which encapsulates my illusions.
