a soundtrack....

My life pretty much has a constant soundtrack..

It changes with my mood, location and generally anything really. It is very mixed and i have completely varied tastes.

I almost always have headphones on and listen to music all day while i work.

So when my gorgeous sister Jessica decided to do a music based link up over at her blog there is no way i could not take part
(psssst... you should so join in the fun too... Just click on the button to go to jess's blog and then comment here so i know to look for your post)

This week i have had a distinctly Icelandic theme to my songs in highest rotation (perhaps i am hopelessly dreaming of snowy climates).
I couldn't just pick one so i decided on two.

The First is....
 Bjork - Army of me (SuckerPunch remix)

But more specifically the remix Bjork did for the movie sucker punch. I love the original so much i was a little unsure when i heard it was in the movie, but i really like this version it is a little fatter and i am a big fan of deep bassy sounds.

The Second is...

Sigur Rós - Glósóli

I absolutely love Sigur Rós, They are one of my favourite bands and great to chill out and relax too...
The sound is so all consuming. It is so beautiful and i think the fact it is all sung in Icelandic makes it even more better. It is more about the sound than the lyrics for me with this band.



  1. Sigur ros and bjork?! I think we were destined to be friends.

  2. As an aside, I heard mogwai play live once and I would love to hear sigur ros. The music live is so loud and all encompassing that you kind of just... disappear. (I'm so pretentious to say it like that, but you know what I mean right?)

    1. I know exactly what you mean and Mogwai is like that. I have hear Sigur Ros is the same, so all encompassing it is almost over whelming.

  3. I often think I need to get you together but then I kind of get jealous and don't want you to like each other better than you like me so i don't! :) just kidding...but not really.

    Thanks for linking up Jas! :) and i'm TOTALLY not surprised by these songs... very YOU!
