Sigur Rós – Sæglópur

Sæglópur is a song by the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós. It is Icelandic for ‘Lost at sea’. Though I don’t understand the lyrics, the music it is unreal. When it starts it feels like he is starting on a journey, taking the necessary precautions and then he begins. The trials and tribulations  the world raging a war against him and he is still trying to hold up, hold o. He is fighting the war in his mind, the war around himself, Then he begs, the stars and the sun and the moon to save whatever is left of him. To give me some peace, some closure.This song is the work of an absolute genius. It gives me hope, breaks me down, dusts my ass and helps me stand up again. In a weird way it gives me the support to enter the great unknown, it is teh entrance to the land of dreams far beyond the regular universe. I love it. The video is a thing of beauty in itself. It’s a joy to listen to this song!

Thank you Sigur Rós.
