It's my attempt of an english version of Sigur Rós' Money Song. Several people asked me to do this, so I tried. This piano pattern is so insane and addicting.

Here are the lyrics:
Spinning 'round and 'round
Tightly holding hands
The whole world is a blur
But you are standing

Completely soaked
Completely drenched to the bone
Not wearing wellingtons
The will is running in us
Erupting from a shell

Steering wind
The smell of your hair
Blowing away from here
I ran as fast as I could
Into you


My nose began to bleed
But I got up again
I always do

It's not an exact translation. I had to change some phrases to make it fit into the rhythm. I decided to not translate the word Hoppípolla because I didn't find any singable equivalent expression.

The video is from an 8mm film reel I found in the woods (no joke!). I don't know any person in this video. The cool thing about the film are the water damages at the end. They created wild patterns that just look awesome.

I made another video from this film reel: Different Roads ( )
