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
