Sigur Rós

here you are,
glowing sun…
~Sigur Rós

For Music Monday, a couple of songs by Iceland's Sigur Rós:

The first song was really nice, very enjoyable.

The second one was great in and of itself, but the video was outstanding. I looked it up and it was highly praised...and justly so. One interesting thing I picked up from the Wikipedia description took me completely off guard:

"The video is also a direct allusion to J. D. Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye. In the novel, character Holden Caulfield says "I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all."

Wow, I had no idea! It is an amazing video. They also have one with elderly people acting like kids which is really something.

I've connected before with your Icelandic shares, T. This one is no different! I loved the second one and the one you left in the comments especially. Thanks for sharing. :)

That video with the "elderly children" was a winner, too. :-)

I like their music...very soothing and interesting, too.
