Sigur Ros - Vidrar Vel Til Loftarasa

I was reminded of my favorite Sigur Ros video last night, and thought I'd post it for everyone's enjoyment. It's sad and touching and suggests there is innocence that may be misunderstood. For reasons that probably become obvious, I cried the first time I saw it. Below, the translated lyrics...

Good Weather For Airstrikes

I Slide Myself Forward
Through My Head
I Think Half Way
See Myself Sing The Anthem
That We Wrote Together
We Had A Dream
We Had Everything
We Rode To The End Of The World
We Rode Searching
Climbed Skyscrapers
That Later Exploded
The Peace Was Out
I Leak Balance
Fall Down
Total Silence
No Answer
But The Best Thing God Has Created
Is A New Day

I LOVE this song (and it may be my favourite song to date). I've loved it since the first time I ever heard it, and everytime I see the video, I shed a tear or two. This song, like so much of their music, has a way of reaching into your soul and dredging up emotion. It sounds silly, but it's true. They create beautiful soundscapes that are simply breathtaking. Thanks for posting this!
