Sigur Rós – Hoppípolla

Had to resist the urge to include one of their more impenetrable numbers. Hoppípolla is overplayed and overused in TV soundtracks for sure, but is still a gloriously uplifting piece. I love the country of Iceland and its people; they have a history of great experimental music – I’m reliably informed that 80% of Icelanders have been in a rock band.
