Tónlist Þriðjudagur: Sykurmolarnir – Ámæli

9 September, 2014

Assuming Bárðarbunga hasn’t erupted and closed the North Atlantic and European airways like Eyjafjallajökull did four years ago, I will be in Reykjavík this week, ticking off a few bits and pieces from my bucket list. The fact that I am in Iceland is one for starters. Today I will be on the Golden Circle tour, taking in Þingvellur, Geysír and Gúlfoss (tick), before rushing back to watch an International football match where I am a neutral (tick) being played outside of Britain (tick), namely Iceland vs Turkey.

Anyway, I have linked this before but not as part of a Ch Ch post. It’s the first introduction I had to Icelandic culture (apart from Magnus Magnusson on Mastermind), the first introduction to the unsurpassable, stunning, extraordinary voice of Björk, and while this tune by itself isn’t the reason I am here, it was the first step on this road.




  1. The Sugarcubes! I’d only ever heard the English version of Birthday. Thanks RG!
