"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.

Smiling Spinning round and round Holding hands The whole world a blur But you are standing   Soaked Completely drenched No rubber boots Running inside us Want to erupt from a shell   The Wind An outdoor smell of your hair I breathe as hard as I can with my nose   Jump into puddles With no boots on Completely drenched(Soaked) With no boots on   And I get a nosebleed But I always stand up (Hopelandish)   And I get a nosebleed But I always stand up (Hopelandish)

ALWAYS check Amazon first. Of the many oddball albums I have hunted for they have only let me down once or twice. They have a whole Sigur Ros store.

I remember hearing this in planet earth, and one day I was scrolling through a top 10 list of 2005 songs and I came across the title "hoppipolla". For reason I felt Like I should click on the video, so I did. I heard the intro and started crying. This song is the most beautiful song I have ever heard.
