Sigur Rós – Hoppípolla

“Hoppípolla”, Icelandic for “Jumping into puddles”) is a song by Icelandic band Sigur Rós from their 2005 album Takk…. It was released as the album’s second single on November 28, 2005. The lyrics are mainly in Icelandic, with some nonsensical phrases, a “language” the band calls Vonlenska (“Hopelandic”). As with many of the band’s songs, it was given a nickname in the early stages of writing. Hoppípolla was “The Money Song”, as the band was certain they had written a song which would have commercial success. It is the band’s most successful single, charting at #24 on the UK Singles Chart in May 2006 due to the song’s increased popularity as the theme for the BBC’s Planet Earth. The single also features “Með blóðnasir”, an instrumental coda to “Hoppípolla”, which is also featured on Takk…; and a studio remake of “Hafssól”, a song previously released on the band’s 1997 debut album, Von. The title appears as “Hafsól” on the single.

    TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR MADE A HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The MIRACLE of Amsterdam!!!!!!!
    MOST TOUCHING UEFA champions league match in my life.
    Although I'm other team's fan, but today's match is MOST TOUCHING match in 2019!!!!!!!

  2. I still remember the video made by I'm cyborg but that's okay for this song and unfortunately , YouTube took it down. I'd be very thankful if anyone has it and could send me. 🙂

  3. Anyone else cry their eyes out when they listen to this??? Has to be one of the most breathtakingly beautiful songs I've ever had the pleasure of listening to!!

  4. I don't understand the slightest bit of icelandic…. but from the first time I ever heard this song I loved it, innately knew the meaning/intent of the song… that speaks volumes for how beautiful music is supposed to be. transcends language transcends reason its just works

  5. Magical song of universal beauty and power. From around the 2:14 mark on is some of my favorite music ever created. The crescendo when.the strings and horns kick in hard might be the most blissful sound I've ever heard.

  6. I feel calm, relaxed, motivated, energized and i feel freedom at the same time while im listening to this song. Still i dont know a damn thing about what they are singing. Master piece!

  7. Sky castle brought me here..this part when the twin and their friends skipping class..and the best part when they throw the paper in the air in front of his teacher.. HAHAHA

  8. omg nostalgia… I knew about this music a long time ago but I heard it in the last episode of SKY Castle! no wonder it sounded familiar.
