Hoppipolla… what the helll is that? well, at first I didn’t know it. But now I know!
what I knew of hoppipolla is that this song appeared as the closing soundtrack of my favourite movie Penelope. The sound is very catchy. I really like it. And then I search more about this Hoppipolla song and I know now that it is sang by an Icelandic band called Sigur Ros (means. Victory Rose), and Hoppipolla itself has a meaning as “Jumping into puddles”. It was released in November 28, 2005. In their album Takk… (means. Thanks).
In this post I can’t attached the youtube video link, because this video is not available in my country (Indonesia). hmm… too bad. If you wanna know the song maybe you should watched Penelope first. haha… or Slumdong Millionaire, or Children of Men. This song is used in those movies to and any other commercials and some sport shows. It turned out to be a very popular song. haha
The lyric is very nice and like most people would say, light-hearted. It’s actually very funny when they sing it with the Icelandic languange. It tells about free feelings. No worries and suchs. No video, but at least I can attach the lyric. hee…
Brosandi Smiling Hendumst í hringi Spinning round and round Höldumst í hendur Holding hands Allur heimurinn óskýr The whole world a blur nema þú stendur But you are standing Rennblautur Soaked Allur rennvotur Completely drenched Engin gúmmístígvél No rubber boots Hlaupandi inni í okkur Running inside us Vill springa út úr skel Want to erupt from a shell Vindurinn The Wind og útilykt af hárinu þínu An outdoor smell of your hair Ég anda eins fast og ég get I breathe as hard as I can með nefinu mínu with my nose Hoppípolla Jump into puddles Í engum stígvélum With no boots on Allur rennvotur(Rennblautur) completely drenched(Soaked) Í engum stígvélum With no boots on Og ég fæ blóðnasir And I get a nosebleed En ég stend alltaf upp but I always stand up Og ég fæ blóðnasir And I get a nosebleed En ég stend alltaf upp but I always stand up
